a bit of everything for the weekend . . .

Greetings all,
Seeing the weekend is a bit of everything (sports, parties, snowy mountains) i thought i'd make a post that reflects my scatty about-to-do-a-market brain.  So here goes . . .
My darling children made an awful mess in my studio last night but i woke to find gifts to the GingerBread Gods . . . how cute is this, they made some paper gingerbread men for the house (still in tact)!!  Plus my darling 3rd daughter, my deep thinking bohemian dreamy one, made a daisy chain at school (as you do during sports class on the oval) for the GingerBread House too.  These handmade GingerBread Houses are available in Shop Handmade Canberra NOW, plus $2.50 GingerBread Men, Trees, Snow Men . . . seriously delicious treats!!
Tonight i have a little twilight market & with only one trestle for stall space, i'm taking retro toys & vintage Tshirts, seeing all of my handmade stock is at Shop Handmade.  Yes, i used to import vintage Ts & sell them at the markets but now i'm more a handmade purest (read: do strictly handmade only markets) so this is a great way to move some stock!!  My husband will bring the children for a BBQ dinner & fingers crossed, help me load the car, yippee!! 
Ivy Designs is in Shop Handmade, check out her sweet accessories for children.  Love Wynona, she's really cool & her style, well, gorgeous, i have that necklace on the stand in my collection.  Wyn sent beautiful props & how about that branding display, so beautiful, just like her!!  Many more new designers starting in November too along with more stock from that Posie girl.
I'll just take this opportunity here in a mixed post to say my eldest daughter came top 4 in the ACT athletics for high jump!!  My super star, 4th in the state!!  She's not very tall yet, so when she gets the traditional McClelland long legs, the sky will be the limit!!
Finally, to make this post completely bitsy . . . just watching The Circle (shhhh, i should be at school watching my middle girl at midday assembly hand chosen to do a Japanese dance, but i'm also packing the car for tonight's market so my husband is the chosen parent to go armed with fancy SLR Nikon to capture her performance) . . . they discussed this cool site about childhood photos (usually horrific with bad hair) compared with ones taken now.  If you like Cake Wrecks, Regretsy & What Not To Knit . . . check this out . . . YoungMeNow!!
Have lovely weekends, love Posie

Hope the markets go well. Congrats to your daughter...the one that actually did the sport instead of making daisy chains...actually I like the daisy chain as well. xx

Sell Sell Sell.....Momma.
Phil was running the store today and I have this elderly man who has a fettish for big clip on earings and he stopped by to visit me. Phil said he would rather work with his wood and build than deal with the public, I love them all.

I bet at these markets you meet interesting people?

That gingerbread house is to die for. That would not last a second in our household. WOW.
