My fab new dresses :)

I road tested my new dresses today. I initially wanted to have some ready for the next Allie's Attic in Paddington on 12 December but I had some ready to come to Bondi with me today. It seemed quite a few people liked them as much as I do! (It's not wrong to love your own stuff is it?)

Here are a few snapshots of some of my newies.

Allie's Attic

As always I want to start by saying thank you to everyone that came and said hi. I had a great day but it was a little slow at times. The time went a little quicker by having great neighbours to chat to. My immediate neighbour was Sarah from rosebarnett, I would recommend to check our her blog as she has so many fabulous things. I also caught up with another equally talented Sarah from Gifts Created. Love her mushrooms!

This time I didn't take my camera when I walked around checking the other stalls so you will have to make do with photos of my stall :) If I don't see you at Bondi, hopefully I will catch up with some of you at the next Allie's Attic on Saturday 12 December.

Allie's Attic Launch Giveaway

I am thrilled to announce my very first giveaway on my own blog (had one over at Badskirt a while back). This one is in honour of the launch of Allie's Attic. They will have their first market at Hunters Hill on Saturday 14 November. I will be there and would love you to come and say hi.

I have three prizes so the odds of winning something should hopefully be a little better!

Prize one:
2 bracelets
2 rings
2 bobby pins
1 set of hair ties

Value $61

Prize two:
hair clip
hair ties

Value $34

Prize three:
hair ties
bobby pin

Value $14

Shipping is of course also included in the prize. All I would love you to do is to leave a comment telling me what you feel is missing in children's clothing at the moment.

The draw will be on Wednesday 11 November at 8pm (sydney time) so that if you come to Allie's Attic I can bring your prize with me :)

Mathilda's wrap up

Ok, I am going to start by saying thank you to everyone who came by my stall yesterday, I had an amazing morning. From the moment the doors opened to closing time it was full on and a lot of fun (the hall was boiling so that wasn't as great). Blogless Jasperboy Jen came all the way from Melbourne to say hi which was a huge surprise. Thank you so much for your help Jen during the morning, fixing my racks making sure sizes were in their right spots etc - you were great! For those of you who haven't met me you can now see what i look like as well (when i am hot and grinning). I am the blonde one.

My darling husband came along and helped me set up in the morning. Having an extra pair of hands was great and we were done at 8.30am. He took off and i had time to wander around and check out the other stall holders and their wonderful things. I ran into Mel from Skye Rocket Sews and checked out her beautiful Kokeshi dolls. Badskirt Amy was also there with her fab animals. You can see I just want to get in on every photo op!

Here's my new little set up for rings, bracelets etc. I was just so keen to use it. My husband told me it would just get trashed and I of course I knew he was right but I still wanted to give my little bedroom set a go. I was constantly there trying to fix it up but I lost in the end.



Thank you again and hopefully I will see some of you at Allie's Attic in two weeks time.

Trick or Treat

On Saturday night we went out trick or treating with our children and a couple of friends. They were so super excited about the whole thing. They love dressing up but they also love eating lollies (funny that). We walked around for about 1 1/2 hours and even though they wanted to continue I was pretty exhausted. I also knew I had to go home and finish a few things before Mathilda's market the next day. When we got home they were eating their loot for a little while before going to bed. It's the perfect bedtime snack don't you think ;)

Normally i would get rid of the red eyes in photos but thought it was fitting to leave them this time, lol
