The girls are now happy to be all dressed up on brooches.  Tomorrow I will be at the Daylesford Makers Market with lots of new brooches. 

Sunday I'll be at the Arts Centre Sunday Market in Melbourne.

New stock for Christmas Shoppers

Each week I make buttons and I need to make extra this week.  Next weekend I will be at Daylesford Makers Market on Saturday and Arts Centre Sunday Market on Sunday.  Great markets for Christmas shopping.

Small tea cosies for the 1 to 2 cup pots.

This colour combo of raspberry, pinks and mauves is very popular.  Travellers to the northern hemisphere for Christmas need hats and scarves.

The Echidna is Back!!!

Darwin was barking at a bush!!!  Brie thought it may be a snake so very carefully investigated

No snake to be found.  Instead the echidna had returned.  Well I think he or she lives around here now.

Darwin ans Mopsy had to come inside and be quiet.  Within about 20 minutes the echidna was all brave again and wandered off.  Thanks for your quick thinking and the photos Brie.

And I promised photos of Darwin swimming in the creek. So here he is having a look around.

Each day Darwin likes to swim in the creek or the dam.  Mopsy likes to walk but is not so keen on the swimming.

Darwin's life has not been dull after the echidna left for a more secluded home.  Cows and calves have moved into the paddock opposite to eat down the grass.  One cow gets out at least once each day much to Darwin's amusement.

Monday Vintage Find

This was my Mother's shopping list gadget.  She would use this every week.  I remember being so excited when I was allowed to make the list by moving the small red beads.   I notice that the ice cream red bead is a little loose!  This list maker is from the days when I would go to the grocer with Mum.  The teddy bear biscuits (and all the biscuits) were in square metal tins which had an illustration on the front showing the type of biscuit.  The required biscuits were weighed and sold in paper bags. 

The list gadget was made in Austria.

Which way shall we go???

Brie has been home writing essays which means the dogs have been on lots of walks.  Walking Mopsy and Darwin is an adventure time for them.

They are vaguely thinking of going in the same direction.  So many smells of rabbits, hares and foxes.  And horses have been up the road as well.


Mopsy may have found something more interesting over there. 

For a short distance Mopsy and Darwin are walking in the same direction.

I forgot to take a photo of Darwin swimming in the creek.  Next week I'll take a photo before Darwin shakes water all over me.

Our Duck Family

Our duck family used to number 3 or 4 ducks.  They come to visit our dam after a swim in the creek.

With such a great season the duck population has increased enormously.  I have counted 31 ducks this year.

After a chat the ducks are leaving to visit the dam next door.  The ducks leave in 2 separate groups.
