Fairy Floss, Face Paint, Fairies and Fun

It had it all - you had to be there.  Where?  At the BrisStyle Indie Mother and Child Market last Saturday.  We two Fudges returned from a week in New Zealand on Thursday evening (more of that later in the week) which left me one day to complete some skirts and generally prepare for the market on Saturday.  Not ideal, but it's amazing what you can achieve when pushed.

If you haven't experienced May in Brisbane, then you really haven't lived.  Saturday was one of those crisp, sunny days, pure magic. 

This was BrisStyle's first venture into the mother and child end of the market and what a joy it was to be part of the fun.

We had our own fabulous Fairy Queen ...

balloons ...

face painting and fairy floss ...

... and lots of tempting goodies to buy.

 There were colouring-in contests, a sausage sizzle, and so much more to keep the children entertained and the parents happy.

My worst nightmare of fairy-floss fingers all over my clothing did not eventuate and even the face paint stayed on the faces of little (and big!) children where it belonged.

There's our Fairy weaving her magic on some entranced tots ... although Little Miss Red Stripes looks as though she needed some convincing!

And now back to the picture at the top of this post - the final word goes to this little charmer.  Her mother bought this Hot Fudge outfit for her and I am relieved that she loves it.  Isn't she just adorable?

If you missed this wonderful market, then pop this date in your diaries now - Saturday 5 June.  This time it will be the full BrisStyle Indie Designers' Market and it is shaping up to being our biggest and best yet.  Between 9 in the morning and 2 in the afternoon, you will have the opportunity to grab creations by some extremely talented designers.  Don't miss out.

For a complete report on the day, visit the BrisStyle official blog.

What a great event. May in Brisbane is lovely, have fond memories of warm cool days.

Your market will have to be a must next time I am over there.

And the cutie in the last photo looks gorgeous

Wasn't it a fabulous day! Your little customer looks so sweet in her Hot Fudge threads. I think I might have to get my nieces decked out in some HF for their birthdays later in the year.
