This little blogger went to market..



I wish I could explain the image above.. but I have no idea :) Years ago it was my Sunday morning ritual to zip up to the Wanneroo Markets to buy fresh flowers for the week, yesterday I went for the first time in ages. It looks like they are encouraging the ever popular at the moment 'pop up' shops and it's quite possible that it may have something to do with super hero framed photos.. I could be wrong. Below if you're planning your wedding on a budget, and I think you should.. you can buy a wedding gown here for between $90 to $200, seems fair for something you'll hopefully only wear once..


Or you could sit for a bit and have your portrait sketched, I didn't and I suspect Leo didn't either..


I almost bought one of these tee shirts below for P, he doesn't have dread-locks, or drink beer.. ignore the two on the right, so guess which one :)


I did buy some seasonal fruit and veg..very fresh!


I could do with a bit more exercise, but think I might be a hazard on the road :)


I already have everything I need for belly dancing!


Flowers that last forever...


... or flowers that last for a week if you're lucky. I choose the latter..always! Hope that you had or are still having a fab weekend. It's a long weekend here in Austalia, sleep in tomorrow yay! Happy Monday, take care and stay safe..

  8. A fine medley of market stuff. Do you want to elaborate about already having all you need for belly dancing?

  9. What a fascinating place. I could get lost in their for a long time. The first shot reminds me of a bowler who dropped his ball. And I'll pass on the cheapo wedding gowns. :)

  10. What?! $200 for something you wear only once? Ridiculous! T-shirts and jeans. :-)

  16. Lovely series from the market. Perhaps that first shot is of the Marvel comics character The Silver Surfer? And I see you found a t-shirt for me, "Grumpy Old Man".

  17. What a crazy place. Looks like a blend of Bourbon Street in New Orleans and Pike Place Marker in Seattle.

  18. Great little tour around the market - haven't been there for years (what an old stick-in-the-mud I am!!).

  19. Looks like you were having a ball at the market Grace. Plenty of variety I see.

  20. Good choice on the sunflowers, they are beautiful and brighten up any day!
    Love the T-shirt you considered buying...lol
    Wedding dresses up to $200, what a bargain, I bet not many brides go to Wanneroo and spend thousands instead!

  21. In enjoyed the walk through the market. I have a pitcher very similar to the one you have...I think I need some fresh sunflowers too!

  22. A fascinating market, Grace, so many different things...

  23. What great colors, all. I'd go with Marley tee.

  24. We now know where to buy a wedding gown isn't it? Just go to the market and pick one out. You don't have to make it yourself difficult.:) Your hubby is not a grumpy old man, is he?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Ah there's nothing quite like a trash and tresure market. Speaking of trash - those super cheap wedding gowns are made of shoddy materials and have even shoddier workmanship. Support your local dressmaker!

  26. You sure made me laugh with this post, Grace :-)
    I love the first pic! And, well, what can I say. My "wedding gown" was $10 (K-Mart) and I can wear it in summer still :-)
    Yah, that t-shirt... I nearly bought it for Ingo! Awww, the flowers, so nice to see. 8C, rainy over here

  27. Many years ago my dad had one of those t-shirts you see in the center of your shot. He enjoyed wearing it. I love those flowers. I'm with you on the real ones. I go for those every time.

  28. An incredible and wonderful assortment of strange things: I could spend hours there...

  32. Oh I want the "Grumpy Old Man" T-shirt for someone I know. :) Fresh flowers and fresh veggies would draw me into the market.
