This weekend I finally got around to waking up early... which is pretty marvellous for me. And what did I do with this magnificent re-claimed morning? Why I went to the markets!
That being said the markets in my small town aren't that exciting. While there were some fantastic fruit and vegetables about, there is nada in the way of clothing or jewellry that wasn't of the crazy hippy type. Not that that sort of jewellry doesn't have it's place, it's just not what I'm lusting after at the moment. No, the reason why I went was because of the magical, mystical sewing stall. It's the most lovely thing I've ever seen. All it is tables covered with ribbon, lace, buttons, appliques, flowers and fabric but it's definately a reason to get up early.
The brooch is one of those 'too crazy' finds that you buy because you think they are funny. It's a crazy little caricature of a cockatoo which reminds me a little bit of Ken Done.
