Flea Market

As promised some of last week's 'treasures' from the nearby Birgu Sunday market

Things I brought home.....
 A nice bubbly green bottle, perfect for lemoncello don't you think? 

 Some dainty little glasses, and some random tiny animals... perhaps to use on top of cupcakes or just to play with. 
Some retro paints in their original wrappings 
(I love the sturdiness of their little metal boxes) in fact I ended up buying two,and we have already put them into use!

and last but not least is a book, unassuming and outdated looking on the front...

But here is a sneak peak at some of the many stories contained within its pages.....

It had Doctor Dolittle and the Pushmi pullyu... how could I not buy it!!??
There were some spools of thread, buttons and ribbons that also made it back in my bag but perhaps I have already stuck on enough photos for this post!

ah and a photo from the market itself
Spotted- some jumbled old toys under a random table at the market
(sorry at the actual market I was too busy looking to snap many photos)  next time...

Happy Friday to you all, may be it be bright and cheery.

Wednesday's Cornerview: highlight of the past year

In celebration of the corner view turning a year we have been asked to pick out our favourite post, am a little shy to do this as I am a new member and have only been a part of it for a few months. 
I did like the wisdom from an elder idea though so here is my link to that post.
For other cornerview highlights go here.

Now to keep it a little interesting, here is a post I always meant to do that fits with this theme, if you have a few minutes please do give it a listen initially here, to hear some more original voices go here, some of these early suffragettes were so determined and tough! But in such a polite sort of way!

Thinking about fabric

The urge to sew is back at last (this time with time on its side)

Sea swells

Nothing like stumbling upon a path and heading for a little picnic, kids, kites, fresh bread and sparkling wine in tow... 

off for a little adventure

some cheery spring flowers 

Salty sea breezes and surreal blue waters

Past a caper flower 

and finally finding peace and calm in a meadow

Little D gets down to business with some drawing

some views along the way

Turned out to be a very nice Saturday outing, and the kites from Grandma had a grand time tossing and turning in the wind. Oh and we saw a soaring hawk (or maybe it was a falcon) sorry the picture just shows a dot so I didn't include it, but for me it was one of the highlights of the walk.

Sunday held some treasures found at the Sunday flea market but I won't overdo it on the photos!
Hope you are all enjoying your weekend, I love that spring can bring surprises.
