to market, to market to buy a terrarium

Our first ever Squiggly Rainbow market stall at Kallista Market on Saturday.  Pretty good for a last minute pull everything together market stall!  Miss G and the boys were an absolute dream and loved frollicking around the other stalls and trying to eat as much food as possible!  

I don't think we could have done this a year ago - what a testimony to my boys once again and how far they have come.

Miss G wore her new Graduation gift earings - they even matched the market stand!

Terrariums are continuing to be a hit!  These ones had my new little handmade nests with blue robin eggs.
I loved seeing the children's faces as they came to visit - so magical!

Whimsical bunting - a twist on the traditional triangular garlands.

Miss G packed her book and cushions and made herself right at home.  This was literally a dream come true for my darling. (Except I forgot the big woolen blankets for her to snuggle under.)

Dresses were a hit, with requests for ladies sizes.

A surprise visitor and her precious girls from my old hometown over an hour away!  Isn't she just gorgeous - a real little faery with her new crown!

Vintage world map bunting light shade.

The best thing about the market for me was the buzz of people and conversation.  We did well for our first one - as I tried to explain to my kidlets - it wasn't about the money - the delight in people as they check out one's 'stuff' was what blessed me!  The kind words - the great feedback and encouragement.

Tomorrow I will let you in on the news and how a brand new stockist came about!

Hope all is well.  
Much Love Rach x
