Gorgeous bunny hand print from Miss Fire Photography and Prints and a funky succulent hand painted pot from ELC Designs

I had a lovely creative decorating day on Saturday, visiting two markets, the Pop Up in Prospect and That Dapper Market.  My mum and son Maxwell came to the Dapper with me and he was delighted to find CUPCAKES! And these gorgeous birds.

Bargains - one is New Zealand wood, the other carved from a horn of some type

I had a moment of panic when I got home to find NO MOBILE PHONE! It was like someone died…..I realised that my life was in that phone, my contacts, photos, access to my work, social media…and I had no security on the phone! Driving through tears I did the 30 minute drive back to the market, looked where I parked in case it had fallen out, ran into the market, asked the lovely Kym from In The Moment Cermics who to ask, found the organisers who had the phone! I could have kissed her.

Lesson learnt – phone now has all the bells and whistles security possible! How was your weekend? And do you have rituals like me with my flowers on the weekend? Love to hear!

Here is some of my pottering from the day.
