Niche revisited

I got a bunch of work done today including some new badges and woollen purses for Cocoon and some hair accessories for Leeloo. I also have a number of orders from Niche underway (and I'm getting there in case any of you happen to be waiting for something!) Tonight we are just doing a bit of last minute preparation for our first open home. Unfortunately there was a little cornflake incident this morning that means the floors need remopped. Oh, well. Our plan is to get everything sorted tonight and then vacate as soon as we can in the morning. That way no unforeseen little girl mess can occur. We may go to Agfest to see some huge tractors and farm animals - Chloe will love it and in what seems like an age ago, I studied Ag Science so I (very) occasionally like to revisit that life.

Now to begin my chronicling of some of the cool things at Niche. I've been nicking photos in the hope that everyone's so happy about Niche they won't mind - I'll email after!

Gemma's beautiful Loz and Dinny stall (and the beautiful Gemma). Photo nicked from Fer.

The Loz and Dinny library bag on the left is now Chloe's. I haven't seen a prouder face than Chloe's as she walked through the market with it on after her Daddy bought it for her. Photo nicked from Gemma.

That myrtle laser cut brooch, the one with the two birds to the right is now mine, all mine. It was the last one and I love it. It's made by the lovely Sophie of That Vintage fame. She has an Etsy shop where you can check out her lovely things. Photo nicked again, from Sophie this time.

An owl very similar to these ones is sitting in pride of place in my house at the moment. It's meant for the babe on the way and I'm looking forward to setting up the room in the new house. This is one of Vee of the Purple Finch's creations. I'm already planning on another purchase next market! Photo nicked from Vee's blog.

More of Vee's beautiful softies. Photo from Fer.

There's more to tell but I must get back to the tidying.

All the stalls look wonderful.

Is it a regular market?

Good Luck Suse!

I hope the first person through the door loves it as much as you do and offers a price too good to refuse.

Enjoy your special excursion out with Chloe.

Ag Science eh? You are one diverse lady!!! Something rather "homely" about a dried pile of cow-pat... haha! Enjoy your day out with all the farming toys and what a great spiel on Niche! I am having withdrawals, I miss all the buzz of it!

No worries Suse! I like the goodies you picked up for yourself too, and it's great that you got so many orders from that weekend as well.

Have fun at Agfest, I always love watching the sheep dogs. The cheese tasting is pretty specky too but it nearly breaks my heart with us not being able to eat soft or blue vein cheeses!
