Jeepers… Finders Keepers… what a weekend. The sun was in glorious form for the Brisbane Finders Keepers market last weekend. We had Frankie the caravan positioned in amongst the roses and the trumpet creepers… spectacular setting. It was such a fun market….. we had the music cranking, our new coffee friend ‘Muriel the Kombi’ of Kombi Koffein was pumping out the coffee… I can’t express what a great time Timothy O and I had…. it felt like a summer festival! Thank you so much to all who came by to say hello and to see us…. it makes such a difference having a chat and meeting new people… I love it….

… Come Sunday afternoon after the pack up of the market it was great to be back at home and sitting down on the sofa exhausted…..I had a quick flip through this Margaret Olley book… a new acquisition…. I adore her work…

… I had heard about this milk, Scenic Rim 4Real Milk, on the radio last week and I was delighted to find it at Sourced Grocer in Teneriffe in Brisbane there were squeals of excitement . Farmer Greg is taking on the big supermarkets and is offering farm gate real milk with minimum processing to shops and cafes with low ‘food miles’. Check out his website if you are in Brisbane to find out where you too can find delicious proper milk. A lot of farmers in Australia get a pretty raw deal when it comes to the supermarkets, so I am so thrilled to be able to support this particular farmer who is doing it himself….

… I came across this old frame at my friend Tony’s antique shop which I decided to put in the kitchen… along with some old copper scoops I sourced from out west recently….

… the house smells very zingy now after the market….. my mother gave me lots and lots of fresh lemons to decorate our trestle tables with for the Finders Keepers market and now we have them everywhere…. I love home grown lemons….

Weekend in Pictures – Summer Caravanning

Last Saturday Timothy O and I decided to escape the city in Frankie (the caravan) and head for the beach for a few days to a little island not too far away, where life is slow and the breeze always blows…

We arrived at the caravan park and got to work setting up Frankie (when you caravan there is always work to do… mostly it is fun work, however putting the annex/awning thing up is not so much fun)

Timothy O lassoing the annex… (clearly the overalls from Christmas are still going down well)

Ta Dah… all set up and ready to hit the beach…

Some new feathers I found on our many walks to the beach… I like to tape found things to the inside of Frankie when we are away… like a muriel of memories… feathers, seeds pods, whatever I come across that inspires me in some way…

I read a book called Caravan, which I thought was going to be about caravans, though to my surprise it was about Afghanistan in 1946, I couldn’t put it down… I’m reading it again…

A couple of new bangles…

Australian caravan parks are very ‘salt of the earth’ sorts of places… filled with kids on bmx’s eating watermelon, folks sitting on Esky’s having yarns to strangers and lots of John Williamson playing on the radio…

While we were their Timothy O and I walked around the sleepy streets looking at the houses…

Then before we knew it our holiday came to a close and it was time to pack it up and hit the road….
