The wide brown land for me!
Well, we have come out of years of drought only to plunge straight into the flooding rains - no pause to catch our breath - straight into it.
Of course, it didn't auger well for the BrisStyle Indie Designers Market yesterday. Perhaps that's an understatement.
My lovely neighbours were Melanie of Kimono Reincarnate, Renee of Renee's Artwork, and Eliza of Warm Sigh Soap.

Poor Eliza had a bad dose of laryngitis, but in true spirit she made the best of the situation. She had printed out a stack of signs guaranteed to answer just about any question thrown in her direction. It was so funny to watch the customers' reactions when confronted with a printed sign suddenly thrust before their startled eyes, explaining the situation. The frown of concentration would turn to a smile of recognition and sympathy. Any question on the variety of soaps for sale had a ready response. I guarantee if someone asked her who was the first man to conquer Mt Everest, she would whip out her Edmund Hillary sign. What a trouper.
The shoppers were a happy lot and were enjoying the BrisStyle Market experience.
I quickly sold a couple of dresses and this Christmas Tree bunting sold faster than the proverbial hot cakes. In no time at all they were completely sold out, even my display garland, which was quickly replaced with my everyday bunting. (Mental note to self: make Christmas Tree bunting for the Twilight Market on 17 December.)
