part of my stash of Japanese magazines..

*this could be yours!!

Ryo knows how much I love Japanese magazines so last time he went home to Japan he returned with a bounty of my favourites! This one above I already had so I figure it's time to share with you! All you need to do is leave a comment telling me what you think is so special about Japanese aesthetics. I will put all names in a hat or box and pull one out. Then this magazine will be on it's way to the lucky winner*

Comment by Sunday 6th December. Please don't be shy!

Bardon Christmas Market..

Today I will be at Bardon Hall 246b Simpsons Rd Bardon (behind the preschool) from 9am - 1pm. This is a small market with great products and worth a visit to begin your Christmas shopping. It's organised by Mr Frog's Toybox. Hope to see you there..

Mr P enjoying chewing on one of the many branches he drags in from the garden!



and more markets!!

This little blog of mine has been very neglected of late! It seems the silly season has begun and hot toffee head quarters are in utter chaos. I'm still teaching 2 days a week and trying to fit making, getting orders out, markets and life in the remainder of the time - it's a bit crazy.

I always have my camera with me so often take pics of things I think I will share here but time escapes I'll try and do a little update now. There is no rhyme or reason... really just wanted to say hello!
