Home again, home again, jiggity jig...

Wow - what a cracker of a day. Mathilda's Market was wonderful, so many stallholders showing off their gorgeous wares. The day started early for me (5.42am to be exact). That's when Ollie woke up and even though Brain got up to him, I couldn't get back to sleep, so I headed out to my office to do a teeny, weeny bit more sewing. I couldn't help myself.

Then by 7.15am, my very good friend and market assistant, Noni, was here and we zoomed off towards City Hall. As soon as we walked in, we were lulled by the atmosphere. City Hall has such a lovely vibe about it. After a bit of unpacking, arranging, coffee and re-arranging, we were ready to roll. I felt a bit like a rockstar when I caught a glimpse of the crowd of marketeers wating to get inside. Eeeep - the pressure! I didn't need to worry though, everyone was fantastic, bought up big and complimented me on the designs. Almost everyone that bought something got excited by the fact that I have a heavy bias towards creating boys clothing - mums of boys - I hear you! The lack of funky and stylish boys clothes is what inspired me to begin BabyBird in the first place.

Towards the end of the market I got enough time to pop over and visit Jo from Lovestamp and Keryn from Lillipilli Lane. Hi ladies! I am also very pleased to announce that my spending was completely under control (can't say the same for Noni though! She did buy some stunning things for her beautiful girls). These lovely birdies from Wall Allure found a new home in our kitchen:

Wow - what a day. Bring on the next Mathilda's!

  1. Oh the stall looks lovely!

    And those bird decals are sooo cute! We just got a decal for our place too, and I am addicted. They're like little un-permanent tattoos to pretty up the place! Love it!
