Spent a glorious morning today at Mathildas Market in Fremantle. Set in the gorgeous surrounds of the Freo Town Hall, the poppets and I discovered some fab finds and met some talented folks.

First up was the lovely Annabel from Spotted Donkey.  Not only did the range on display look gorgeous (crochet is so hard to resist), Annabel told us that she sources a lot of her creations from women’s cooperatives in South Africa. Heart and soul!

Next up we paid a visit to Sally at Zoom Packs. I first discovered Zoom Packs when looking for ideas to keep the tribe amused and occupied on our recent trip back from Paris (yes it was slightly chaotic travelling with 24 hours on a plane with the tribe).  My big tip…keep a few tricks in your bag to occupy/ distract the littlies! Enter Zoom Packs, now on our shopping list for the next trip.  Check out Sally’s website here www.zoompacks.com.au

My next port of call was the candy tree to get some ideas and inspiration for the littlest one’s 3rd birthday party. The lovely ladies at the candy tree gave me some great ideas, look here www.thecandytree.com.au for inspiration. Even better, I discovered they can even help you set up (perfect to make the day a little easier for me).

Finally, our morning out ended with a delish cupcake for each of the little ones from the lovely Katie at Sweet Addition (www.sweetaddition.com.au).
