autumn

the mornings are crisp on my walk to work in Bendigo, and the leaves are changing into their autumn colours. It's a lovely time of year, nice to be rugged up with the scarf and mittens in the morning, and watching the leaves change. I hope you have a good autumn day!

treats for me

Over the last few weeks I have treated myself to more amazing earrings all bought through madeit.com.au through two great and different jewellery makers. The lovely ivory drops are from michvanetta, who also replaced my black flower earring as I lost one - thank you for your generosity! And the delicate lace brass earrings are from eclectic moi , lovely treats in my letterbox! Both very reasonably priced and beautifully packaged. An easy way to feel like I have spruced up my work wardrobe for winter. So these, plus the Lauren Williams ones below have me fully stocked up for quite awhile. Thank you ladies!

Meanwhile, back to the sewing machine, I have made a new style of purse, well, just a pleated version. This one is from a salvaged floral sheet and lined with a semi-sheer pale pink fabric. It can be found in my online shops, madeit and etsy. I have to go and rustle up some more zips to make some more of these!

friandes

The weekend has gone way too quickly! My friend and I had another stall at the Maribyrnong Makers Market on saturday, it was good, though I think I still need to adjust my prices. I am getting the feeling that people go to markets to find a bargain. On Sunday I made these choc chip friandes, yummo! I'll post the recipie when i get a chance, sooo much butter and sugar, but delicious!

I also bought some gorgeous earrings from Lauren Williams. Couldn't help myself, and I have already had compliments wearing them!
