lovely treasures from This Grand Life, Skittle & Mouse and others at the Mummy Tree Markets

Home again after a lovely morning at The Mummy Tree markets in sunny Bris-Vegas.

It’s always such a lovely crowd, friendly stall holders, fab customers, loads of (free!) entertainment for the kidlets.  What more could you ask for?

I found some fab gear for my kids, including a gorgeous banner from Oh Deer Me!, and had a lot of lovely chat with my talented neighbour Skittle & Mouse.

Other faves included The Three Birds, and little windsor.  *Sigh*, so many gorgeous treasures!

Hope you are having a fab weekend, and if it’s still a little chilly in your neck of the woods, maybe you could do some couch market shopping…

Gorgeous finds at handmade markets…

This year I made the commitment to a Year of Ethical Fashion (check it out here).

As part of this, I have been exploring and supporting all things handmade.  Alongside the design and production of my range for This Grand Life, I am a huge fan of handmade.  I am happy to chat about, promote and support other artists and designers. It is (for the most part) a big supportive crafty community.  The support and love of artistic endeavours in all forms is one of my favourite things about the creative community.

As one of my lovely sisters put it, ‘oh, you’ve found your people!’.

She is spot on!  This year I have taken my family along to some of my favourite markets: Perth Upmarket,  Market Girl, The Finders Keepers, The Mummy Tree Markets, Brisstyle and the Rock a Buy Markets.

We have found fabulous handmade puppets, sand art, gorgeous hand-made clothes, eaten delicious cupcakes, sipped tea and throughly enjoyed ourselves along the way.

With Christmas coming up fast, why not make your own commitment to buy something handmade this year?

It’s been a little quiet on the blog front here…

The main reason is we are gearing up for Perth Upmarket on the weekend.

Preparing for our favourite farmers markets, Mt Claremont,  we are now there each fortnight!

Plus we are getting set for Marketgirl!

I am basking in the glow of a daydream come true. After years of sewing /creating for my own pleasure and for my little tribe, I decided to take the plunge and start a boutique design label. Featuring fab frocks, sunny sun dresses, cool shorts, super cute totes, brooches…and a whole lot more, This Grand Life, the label became a reality.
This weekend I braved The Finders Keepers market in sunny Sydney, and it was…wonderful, terrifying and inspirational all at the same time. Within minutes of opening, my nerves disappeared, and I didn’t stop smiling all day.

Hello from Finders Keepers!

Have you got a daydream? A dream trip? A great idea?

Enjoy xx
