Weekly round-up - blogtoberfest day 7

It's been a wet old week, so no excursions, expeditions or the like, no bushwalks or bikerides : (
Instead I visited a lovely new market in my neck of the woods, all handmade delights.
The Bluebird Market  is held at Leura the first Saturday in the month.

It looks sunny here, but it rained and then hailed a bit.
Still all the stallholders and customers seemed to be happy and there was lovely music too.

For myself I did a spot of recycling, reusing and renovating!

 and this -

became this plus more!
(I'll save that for another blog!)

Then I had stuff to get ready for the Leura Village Fair.
The craft co-operative I belong to (The Nook) has a promotion during the festival - customers spend $30 and get a bag with our handmadde goodies in.

We spent a day stamping the calico bags, and collecting all the items and stuffing the bags.

Cups of tea and lunch was also involved.
Here are the stuffed bags waiting to find a new home!

And I'm getting ready to have a stall at the 2 day festival this I'd better get on with it!

Stopping by from blogtoberfest. I love the design of your blog.

I thought the blue bead in your first jewelry pic looked kinda cool. But, I really like your birdie pendants from day #6.

I love browsing around markets, expecially handmade ones. Love what you did with the beads and stones.
