It's been super busy around here, as I'm doing the Finders Keepers market again in a couple of weeks. If you're in Melbourne, come on down and say hello. But I've managed to catch a few little snaps here and there...

1. amazing green tomatoes from my sister's garden (lunch amid fabric scraps)
2 & 4. quilts and cushions in bright colours were the results of last week's productivity
3. part of our morning routine is counting the number of hot air balloons we see. I never tire of those glorious things floating by
5. enjoying our garage sale find (complete with '70s yellow coke bottle glass... ace)
6. some hot air balloons last week copped this on their morning ride over the city. Double rainbow all the way across. if you know what I'm saying
