Bonjour Markets....

I just love getting out on a weekend and discovering new places, events and hotspots around town. I am particularly favoured towards going to markets and festivals as I mentioned in one of my last posts when I answered the questions in my Liebster Award nomination. 

So this Saturday together with my little rug-rats on a beautiful spring day, we went to see a market called the 'French Country Market'. While relatively small as markets go, it is gorgeous, well organised and very spacious. It has a diverse range of stalls, great tasty food and even a Frenchman playing the accordion, filling the market with beautiful French sounds. If you love vintage, handmade, home wares, jewellery, fashion, and shopping for those unique gifts then this is the market for you. Check out their Facebook page for more details and photos. (Facebook - French Country Market)

One of me and two kids, I was a little out numbered. I didn't get to take as many photos as I would have liked but we managed to get a few lovely shots.  

This stunning display of roses was take at Mayflower Vintage Florist stall.

Devine little succulents from My Little Succulent stall. I purchased my very first cactus, complete with it's little knitted pot jacket. It now sits ever so pretty on my kitchen window. 

A frenchman and his accordion :) 

Very happy to have discovered this gem of a market and I look forward to visiting there again. I'm also looking forward to the lead up to Christmas. The coast has some fantastic markets coming up. If you're local, go check them out. Such a nice way to spend a weekend!

  1. Hi !
    Thankyou sweety for the mention. I love your hanging basket that you bought. I didn't get much of a chance to have a good look around so I didn't see the stall with those on them.
    It was a great day apart from the hot sun. I hope your little ones had a fun day.
    I might see you there next time it's on xx

Fun With Pom Poms // Lets Make A Cactus...

Seriously! How much fun are pom-poms? It doesn't matter if you're five or eighty two it's something you can make and once you've mastered the basic pom-pom you'll be able to knock this bad boy up in no time.

You're going to need a few things...
One medium sized green pom-pomOne small sized pink pom-pomOne medium sized brown pom-pomScissors Glue (I highly recommend using a hot glue gun, much easier and less messy).Cardboard egg container (to use one cup section as the cacti's little pot). Some Paint (I used gold spray paint).

Firstly cut and trim one egg cup section from the carton. Paint your egg cup container 'Pot' and leave it to dry. It should be dry by the time you have finished cutting your cactus into shape.

Make your three different pom-poms in the colours and sizes needed. (Make sure you leave the tied pom-pom strings through the centre of the pom-poms long, you'll need these to tie your pink and green pom-poms together). 

The trickiest part …
