My Creative Space 'it's a sign'

Greetings all,
Yes, it's a sign, THIS sign in particular brings out the best in Canberra . . . handmade & organic food, craft, jewellery, design & wine PLUS the most awesome crowds EVER!!  Also brings out sheer panic in many a stall holder, only as it's the most successful market we have ever done!!
Handmade Market, Kamberra Winery on Northbourne Avenue (Federal Highway) & corner of Flemington, opposite EPIC in Lyneham, minutes from Canberra CBD, open 10 to 4!! 
note authentic wine barrel top right of banner
my love of colour as expressed in coasters
baskets filled with cute, quirky, limited & all round sweet fabrics -
LOTS of triple packs this time, 3xFat Eighths are looking so fun
& a bit of a French theme going on . . .
pretty Parisian box for Frenchy style coin purses
Hands up who likes having their mug shots taken??  Me neither, but another blog wanted an image of me, so this is me.  I wear glasses, as i'm blind & i pretend people can't notice i'm not wearing make up; i wear hair clips, as i hate my fringe flopping in my face; i wear a chunky strong necklace so when i had babies, they couldn't yank it off & i didn't look bare; i have about 6 blue & white stirped Ts, so no coincidence i was sporting one in this shot; i laugh a lot, so if you find my stall i'll no doubt be smiling!! 
Happy Creative Spacing people, have a beautiful weekend.  Love Posie

Kathie @ Just a Happy Housewife said...

you look great without makeup! one of the many curses of pale skin is not being able to go without makeup, so consider yourself lucky! I wish I could go without makeup and not look dead ;-)
