It’s not really a secret around here that I like blue. Or that I liked distressed. So this girl really is a no brainer…
I just can’t help myself. I look at all the lovely colours available, even the ones I have on my shelf, and still I go back to blue. And if I wanted shiny new looking I could get it from a shop – give me a bit of character any day!
I picked this girl up from the auction house near me, and she’s actually been sitting raw in my lounge room for a month or so. But as I’m getting ready for Avoca Beachside Markets, and also had to clear everything from the house while the bamboo floors were laid, it was finally her turn to get a makeover. As much as I like her I’ve decided to take her to the market.
I’m other news I’ve decided only to do the market four times a year. I just can’t get enough stock ready to do it every month, and while my sister never complains, asking her to come up from Sydney every month to help me is hard. We do have a lovely day, and get to meet loads of people, but it’s hard going without a truck and while my children are small. And it’s so cold in the garage during winter!!! Last night I got all organised, took one step into the garage and raced back inside and in front of the heater! Things may change next year when Harry is at pre-school two days a week, but for now I’m looking at two more market dates for the rest of the year. You can always find pieces for sale here, or on my Facebook page.
One day when I have a shop (just putting it out there, because you know, you never know!) I will have a studio attached that is nice and warm and I can work there and show finished pieces and have a crafty painty kind of group… and a million other things. One day.
