After a grey, cold and miserable Saturday, today was absolutely gorgeous in Melbourne - sunny and warm and perfect for getting out and about. The top photo features the lane of trees leading to my apartment - you can see the lovely sunlight filtering down through the trees.
Here is an olive tree which hangs over a fence in my suburban street:
I wonder will they pick their olives? Some have already ripened and are begging to be picked and cured.
Today, I visited the Finders Keepers Market at Docklands. They sell the most wonderful arts and crafts, and it was lucky everything was on a cash only basis, as I could have bought so much more than I did.
I bought this gorgeous 60's lady brooch from Red Revival:
I adore 60s fashions, and the colours in this brooch matched my red top perfectly.
In keeping with the red theme, I bought this rose earrings from Notions:
Perhaps the biggest bargain of the day was this purse from Only Midge - merely $5!
I bought this badge featuring the sweetest ever pair of red shoes from a stand selling all sorts of odds and ends, so I can't really say where it is from, other than that the label refers to La Marelle.net:
I bought this fabulous Alice In Wonderland "Drink Me" ring from Meow Girl:
I have always been fascinated by Alice in Wonderland, and having a "Drink Me" ring is perfect, because it reminds me of the incredible "Drink Me" potion created by Heston Blumenthal for his Victorian Feast using flavour infused milk, pink food colouring, a gelling agent (to stop the flavours running into one another) and a special glass with a straw in the very bottom so that you can only drink the flavours from the bottom up, one at a time.
Finally, I bought this hair clip from Treeparty Design:
You can't see it that well in the photo, but it has a flower with greenery and butterflies on it. I like the shades in it because it will go with a number of different outfits, unlike red, which only goes with a limited number of other colours.
The market visit was a fun way to spend an absolutely glorious day.
Hope your weekend has been fabulous too!
