l put this couple of vignettes together in celebration..... all but one of the truffle eggs tasted yum!! Yes that's right, l pretty much ate them all...
The market went well, and the weather was truly perfect which ironically was not a concern as a new venue saw us all indoors for the first time. This market is usually held on a train platform and it's often a cold and nasty wind tunnel, still it was great not to have to consider the weather. Lots of vintage bits and bobs were sold from our little stall below, and our adjoining stallholder kept us entertained with his tales of marital woe. Though his long suffering wife was not there to defend herself.... it was all in jest. As an aside his 12 year old daughter sold $160 worth of swapcards, so if you see any on your travels... buyemup!!
My computer has been in the shop so the IT guys could find some lost files that needed to be found (which thankfully they did) but while l was in there l copped a parking ticket, didn't see the (loading) sign and l was in fact loading, but of course try explaining that to a parking officer whose care factor is nil, never mind that he parked illegally in the driveway to give me the ticket. Arrrgghh!!!!
Hope you enjoy this little ballet theme l've got going on, l really enjoyed putting the pics together. Here l found some vintage barkcloth fabric with ballerinas printed on it. It's probably 50's. The ceramic slipper is Japanese and is dated 1983. The handpainted ballerina tile was a lucky market find.
These ballerina cards are prints of works painted by the French artist Edgar Degas. (1834-1917).
It was love at first sight when l spotted this (l think 60's) ballerina print that now hangs in my bedroom.
