The day dawned and not a cloud in the sky.......
It was completely foggy !
Still, it wasn't raining and that was a good thing.
Peering out the window, I spied a patch of blue sky, a good sign.
Feed the chooks and cats, get myself ready and it was time to hit the road.
I was having a market stall in Bright, a beautiful little town at the foot of the mountains.
First market for the year and my first time at the Bright market.
It was a beautiful drive, foggy in parts.
I could pretend it was Winter.
As I neared Bright the fog lifted and the sun shone.
Everything seemed fresh and green after the rain, almost like a Spring day.
A little look at my stall.
New bookcovers, singlets, a couple of vintage Blanket Bunnies and one Grumpy Bunny.
He's a bunny with attitude, but really just needs a hug.
Because, as we know,
'a frown is a smile turned upside down'
Down the other end......
Bunting, pot holders, cards and who's been playing with the brooches?
Vintage style hanky bunting.
Sold 1 lot, to a happy customer.....
The market was held in the park down by the river.
It was beautiful and shady.
Lots of stalls, lots of variety.
Live music, lots of people.
My stall is 3rd on the left, photo taken just after setting up, still quiet.....
Looking up the park to the music sound shell.
The crowds came, it was a beautiful morning.
A little warm but not unpleasant.
Note to self.......
get in early for your egg and bacon brekky roll, before they run out of eggs!
After the market finished and I had packed up, I headed up the street to have a wander and enjoy the glorious day.
The humidity seemed to have disappeared.
Bright is such a lovely town, full of holiday makers at the moment.
Nestled at the foot of the mountains, surrounded by pine forests and the Australian bush.
Driving home, I stopped by the river in Porepunkah.
There were families picnicking by the river, enjoying the fine weather.
I could've stayed there all day, but it was time to get home and upack.
A job I don't enjoy,...............
Anyone need a bike?
The things people collect......
So that was how I spent today.
It was a lovely day, beautiful weather, great camaraderie amongst stallholders.
In fact I enjoyed it so much, I think I might head back there for next months market.
So how did you spend your day?
And so the back breaking, heart breaking clean up begins..........
Watching tonights news about the floods in Brisbane I was amazed to see crowds of strangers, carrying brooms, buckets, high pressure hoses anything that would help in the clean up.
This army of volunteers had come from near and far to help people they had never met....
As 'Matt' said when interviewed by the news reporter,
"It's what we do. We're Aussies, we help our mates"
No. 1 son is playing at the Illawarra Music Festival this weekend and is donating $5.00 from every CD sold to the flood appeal.
Total of CDs sold thus far is 42....
Good job Rich and I know he would like to thank everyone who supports live music and buys CD's.
There are lots of auctions being held on blogs to raise funds for the flood relief, so please join in and help out.
One crafty lady who is whipping up a storm with her crochet hook is Kate over at Foxs Lane.
She has had to deal with her own flood over the last couple of days, so she's had a taste of what the folks up North have been dealing with.
Thinking of you and the family Kate...........
I have been given a blog award recently, shall blog about it next post.
Thankyou one and all for popping by and commenting,, always lovely to hear from you.
I hope your day has been a good one whatever you got up too.
