To Market To Market...

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 scored this cloth at my local market last week for $5.00 - I thought it was really pretty).


  1. Hello hello CarouselDreams !
    Quelle jolie promenade dans ton univers...
    Je le trouve very chaman dans l'esprit.
    Enfin un peu de paix, comme ça fait du bien !
    Merci à toi,

  2. What a beautiful day you had at the market. Love the basket and of course the sunflowers. I am not happy with Mr. Fox, bad boy. Love you sweet nest! Beautiful post. And I so agree you need to go back and get your new vehicle, it is the best.

  3. I found you through Alina's blog and just had to comment on the loss of your chick! I had 7 babies until a few weeks ago when the neighbor's dog got into what I thought was a secure pen! Heartbreak! Love your tipi painting!!! What a great find! (:

  4. I absolutely love all the places you visit! Everything you bought is beautiful, and yes, the yellow lorie would have been perfect to transport your findings :0) Again, thank you for sharing such delightful adventures. Have a wonderful weekend xxx
