Far from busy

Rainy winter days + a sick little lady = finding something to keep me busy!
I'm so terrible at starting something and not finishing it. I have about 5 projects on the run at the moment... I gotta stick to one and finish it!! 
Add it to the to-do-list (with the 100 other things already on there!~)
New book! So many ideas!!
Will post about my creations in a week or so.
Busso has some great op shops! And even a kids shop that sells some pre-loved clothes.

I wish I could find such good buys for myself...
A few finds for Charli. Spring and summer dresses, oh arent they so cute!

Vasse markets

I love markets!!
The Vasse Markets are held on a Saturday morning from about 7am til noon, every fortnight at the Vasse town hall. So a couple of weeks back now, while Charli was making a few good attempts at running away... I tried to get a couple of photos of what the markets have to offer. I'm still yet to get started on reading my book I got from the library - about how to use my SLR off auto mode!! So the iPhone was the 'camera' of choice. For those who have no idea where Vasse is..
It's sorta between Busselton and Dunsborough (South West of Western Australia)..

So whats there???! 

Such a great range of fresh local produce, plants, meats, fresh baked cakes and breads. And lots of handmade bits and pieces - clothes, jewelry, scarfs, soaps, knitted rugs and lots more. A few food stalls are about - pancakes, hotdogs, seafood (yummmo!) And inside the hall there's even a little 'cafe' where you can sit and enjoy a tea/coffee/cool drink. A must get to if your heading to busso or margs or around that sorta area for the weekend. Theres markets on in Busso every weekend, but the Vasse ones win hands down!

All they need is a busker!


Not such great pics, but thats all I could manage while holding a wriggly 15 month old child in the other arm!

Starting again

Where do I begin!


So my first few posts will be about me figuring out how to use blogger again (from an iPad and iPhone) and making my blog look oh so pretty!

Welcome to my blog. My name is Clare, I'm 26 years old. I am a mother to a cheeky little lady named Charli, who keeps me very busy and always smiling (well almost always - shopping centre tantrums can quickly turn that smile to a frown). I am not completely new to blogging, I’ve been blogging for the past couple of months using Wordpress. But i just don't get the same sense of 'blogging community' (if there is such a thing!) using WordPress. A lot of the blogs I'm enjoying reading/stalking are using blogger.. So I'm decided to get out there and start fresh using blogger! Fingers crossed it works out.  My reasons for blogging come about because i need to find a hobby that works for me... One that, if I don’t get around to doing it everyday (or week) it doesn't matter. I find it hard nowadays even sitting down to read a book, so this can be a hobby that doesn’t cost me a fortune, one I can leave sitting there, and one that doesn’t need high levels of maintenance! 

So to begin with...  My blog will be about all the lovely people in my life, the places I go, the things I see, the activities I do and the memories that get created along the way. I look forward to sharing with you all.

Happy reading 
Clare x
