maker's market

The pirate and I were in Melbourne for the weekend. I dragged my good friend out of the city and off to Daylesford for a day in the country and to visit the Daylesford Maker's Market.

Oh such crafty and blogging goodness. The market had much more than its fair share of blogging superstars out of the 30 or so stalls there.

great photo from here

It was great to catch up with Jodie again for a start - and I did manage to spend my market budget almost entirely at her stall. All those cute robots!

Curlypops had great bags and brooches, Kootooyoo had amazing and gorgeous little mp3 player speaker tins as well as a pile of other stuff. And then there were all the bloggers and stallholders I didn't know about but am slowly catching up on here. There must be some kind of creativity gas pumping out down in Victoria.


The pirate was, well, a pirate. In his full splendor. He was duly admired but he repaid the kind attention by wondering at the cleverness of people who could not tell the difference between a pirate costume on a 6 year old and a real life pirate! 'Don't they know I am not a real pirate? I am a kid!' So if you ever see the pirate about remember it is all about the costume and an extraordinary boy.

Oh! I visited Maker's Market too! It was a lovely market, inspiring but intimidating all at the same time.

Nice snaps! re the pirate, my Bill was into pirate gear for a while there. He wore a green, vaguely floral scarf tied around his scone for about a year and brandished a home made sword. He still loves a bit of skull and crossbone action. Who doesn't?!! xo

Pirates rock!

Your pirate is much nicer than a real pirate! Nowhere near as villainous that's for sure (well, not villainous to me, but I'm sure he could be to his mum). ;-)

Well you know i love pairates , but your boy who is just dressed as a pirate is certainly the cutest I have ever seen.

Oh sounds like fun - and who wouldn't think that was a real live pirate when his outfit is so cool

I think there is something in the creative waters in Victoria!! It really is quite amazing.

Great pirate outfit on the pirate!! (and my little person definitely is a pirate - not a pirate queen!)

He looks like he swashed many a buckle that day. What a fabulous costume! Any one of my brood would be proud to get a hold of that one.
