Etsy Made Local.. time for a bit of pretty!



Not a spider, snake or rat to be seen.. it's time for a bit of pretty :) In cities and towns around the world the build up to Christmas day is preceded by numerous markets and craft stalls. One of the biggest here in Perth and around Australia is Etsy Made Local.  A selection of hand made and vintage goods that make that personal Christmas present all the more special.. Shot below, right hand corner, a clue as to my shopping companion :)


So here's the thing.. I got a little side-tracked, how could I not!


As soon as I saw the lampshade, above in daylight and below in the evening, custom made by Melanie at Mesmerizing Blue, I knew without a doubt I had the perfect spot for it. I miss the colourful parrots in my garden since Cafe Grace closed its doors, now it makes me happy to see them everyday minus le noise et le mess :) If you fancy a wee bit of Australia to brighten your day, check the link. Happy Tuesday, take care and stay safe...

  6. I can't see any red hair. The lampshade is a good choice and gives off a very nice soft light.
