Handmade Market

TheCanberra Handmade Market was on today. It's only on three times a year so I couldn't NOT go! I was disappointed that my favourite Turkish stall wasn't there - they do the best lunches. We settled for cupcakes instead. :) Tassy and I both got some gorgeous things. A necklace for each of us made from vintage typewriter keys, and an acrylic brooch each. Mine is the red deer and Tassy's is the howling wolf. So appropriate for her since her alter ego is Wolf Girl, she's writing a book about Wolf Girl, and her logo is a silhouette of a howling wolf.

Wolf girl is very cool! I would've loved to wander around those type of markets!! But with no children! Or Matt for that matter!! LOL!
