After the market on Saturday, Abby and I decided to go and see my friend Wendy sing in a little cafe in Warburton, a lovely little town I have blogged about before.
Wendy and I went to primary and secondary schools together, and were best friends. Over the years, our lives have led us on very different paths, but we have remained friends. It doesn't matter how long between visits, our friendship is such that we can reconnect, no matter how much time has passed. She is a successful singer now, and travels the world sharing her magical voice. I am so very proud of her (and maybe a little envious of her gypsy lifestyle).
I reminded her that it was Earth Hour on Saturday night, so at 8.30pm, she switched off her mike and lights, and did her whole gig accoustically by candlelight - magical.
She has a website if you want to experience her amazing voice for yourselves...http://www.wendyrule.com/

St Andrews Market is a wonderful Saturday afternoon destination...finding that I had a rare Saturday to myself, I called my friend Danielle, and we met at this little piece of hippy heaven...Our dear friend Elspeth had a stall there with her amazing art - I couldn't resist and bought a little teepee painting.
I also found this gorgeous headpiece - how could I say no? Peacock feathers and only $8.00
I had some yummy paella for lunch (all that shopping was making me hungry!)
On my drive home, I spotted this cute yellow ute - ooh, I would love this! Think of all the loot I could fit in this ute!
I also bought this gorgeous basket, and then had to buy some sunflowers (cliche, I know, but don't they look pretty?) Danielle wanted me to buy a loaf of bread to stick in my basket, but I thought that was going too far, so I bought some homemade spinach burek for dinner - yum!
Plunked the sunflowers in with the pink lilies Ian gave me the other day - cheery goodness on my kitchen bench to make me smile...
I wanted to introduce this lovely lady to you...she had a friend up until last week when Mr Fox came visiting - I know, it's too sad for words...she is so clever and gives us beautiful fresh eggs everyday, so I can make all sorts of yummy afternoon treats.

I figure if they suck, then I will have a whole lot of new nighties to wear (he he)...I took some photos in the garden in the dappled sunlight, and picked some roses from my garden...will post more pics once I have finished them all.
