what a glorious weekend.
filled with friends, laughter, good food and wine, sunshine and squishy, happy children. perfectly hallmark.
i had a wonderful day yesterday. dozens of white roses delivered to my bedside. breakfast and coffee in bed. and the best bit, a leave pass for the rest of the day.
on my way to bondi for a think session with my business partner, i popped in to the marrickville organic markets.
such a wonderful market. we lived in marrickville until our move to the country, and every sunday morning we could be found wandering through the markets. buying produce. sipping on the best chai ever. eating amazing food.
and, without fail, i would buy something from one of the amazing stall vendors there.
i call her 'the stylists shabby chic dream'.
but actually, her name is mel.
she always looks like this.
red lipstick. perfectly 'undone' hair. paint splattered overalls. flowers. amazing jewellery. if i could get by with any style, i would choose hers.
(could have taken it all home..anyway, i digress).
i was having a rummage through her fabulous stall, when she recognised me and came to ask how our country move was going. (i was actually rather chuffed that she remembered me, but that isn't the best bit..)
as we were talking, i handed over one of my 'plain jane' business cards.
she recognised the name.
she. follows. my. blog!
could have struck me down with a feather.
this amazing woman follows my blog!
(hi mel, if you are reading this!)
an incredible compliment.
anyway,.. i picked up a gorgeous vintage tin filled with silk thread,...
and some hand carved (maybe bone?) jewellery.
(i am wearing the necklace here with my uberkate silver rings).
such a great moment.
oh,..and look at the gorgeous, winter sunshine rays beaming over the side of our house yesterday morning.
have a great day, friends.
