Its Saturday today, Bren and Indi are at the Slow Food farmers market in Melbourne and I am hanging out with the two little girls.

I am wearing a lovely dress given to me by my wonderful sister Emily.

I am reading this brilliant review of my Mum's book in The Age A2. Yay!!

I couldn't be prouder!

To see what other people are reading this weekend visit the new home of the My Place and Yours meme over at Punky & Me.

I had plans for the girls to wear these wrap-a-round skirts I sewed for them last night but its cold again.

I am eating rocket, fetta, olives and seeds in a salad.

I could eat this for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. I love it.

I plan to go out and buy some haloumi later on for tonight's version.

I am marvelling at how dirty the apron skirt got in one day yesterday.

I am admiring this pile of garage sale treasures.

And I am hoping for a bit of crochet action on the couch this afternoon.

I hope you are wearing, reading, eating, making and admiring some good stuff this weekend. XX


  1. Oooh yeah - Garage sale treasures!

    I've got myself some of that action! I find Garage sales not quite as fun or satisfying as opping, usually, too much hassle to get to & too many people, but I got a pretty good haul today!

    I bet that review in the paper is going straight to the pool room - awesome!

    Can't wait to see your bunny with ears, he is a cute little weirdo right now... ;)

  2. Congratulations to your Mum. I'll bet you're proud.
    What a great way to use an old doily. Clever idea. It'd probably do well at the neck of a dress too.

  3. That dress of yours looks tres nice. a beaut fabric!

  4. How proud you must be of your Mum! Love your skirts, and Garage Sale finds!

  5. Oh Yes how proud you must be ;) That's wonderful news, bet the clipping's framed by now ;) LOVE what you've been reading and doing, see you next week. xo

  9. I'm loving al of your sewing Kate! The skirts are cute, I wish it were just a little cooler here cold would be awesome right now! The apron skirt is beautiful.
