Is it really a years since i have done one of the local markets?
I have had the luxurious pleasure of visiting them since then and having time to engage with friends, fellow stall holders and customers from years gone by and taking in the ambiance that is a local market.
Today again i tasted the delights at Mullumbimby Farmers Market meeting with neigbor's and talking about our community.
A pleasure i am not sure i want to give up!

Most of Australia has been feeling the cold in the past couple of weeks, we have made our life warmer at home with a patchwork of these hand loomed 100% Wool carpets.
They are 150cm to 190cm square and every single one is completely different. They machine wash and are cheery and happy when the sky outside is grey and gloomy.

Whilst in Melbourne last week I ventured out for a visit to the Countryside! I was gobsmacked by Castlemaine. I thought i would run out of petrol as i drove up and down nearly every street admiring the regal architecture of days gone by, what a romantic...............

I love the double life i lead...........! Lush NNSW one day-Melbourne the next, yesterday it was so balmy in Melbourne I wandered the streets after dark, looking into areas i had long forgotten, exploring the exploding inner west, inspired by the new and delighted by the transformation.
I grabbed this snap on the way home, windows down imagining the warmth would stay forever...
