It has been a lovely sunny Saturday here, our tiny town has been overcome with an influx of holiday-seeking folk, so the market this morning was very bustly indeed. Later, we baked raisin bread (in lieu of the more traditional hot cross buns), had a picnic in the garden and then an ambling walk in the blossomy woods.
Lots of things for Iris in my latest finds. Puzzles aplenty which coincides nicely with a definite interest in puzzles from Iris.
We've had a lot of fun with the farmyard one. I do love a nice Galt puzzle.
The Match The Balloons game was an amazing find from earlier in the week, the Dick Bruna drawings are so charming. I'm considering framing half of the game cards as there are two of each.
I also found this tile, with a proud and orange stag prancing about on it, and a length of 1970s material in blues and purple.
In other news, look at this beautiful crab we got (and ate) this week, we're doing swaps with a friend, Paul owes him a trout in return.
And I've been making some owl purses for Easter, to give to Iris and a friend's two girls. They are lined in either felt or vintage fabric and have some tiny treats tucked inside - a few Green and Blacks mini eggs, a teeny chick, a shell, a magnet in the shape of their initial and a homemade envelope with some sunflower seeds . I can't wait to give Iris hers!
Tomorrow we're off to a flea market, which I've heard a lot about but never been to. Excitement! I'm meeting up with Katie so it's bound to be a lot of fun. I'll report my findings back at the earliest opportunity. Wherever you are, I hope you're enjoying this Spring holiday!
