The hardest part by far of working at the markets with so many other amazingly fabulous retailers is trying hard not to spend all our takings! We have also developed quite an addiction to online "browsing" in search of further handmade goodness! The credit card does not thank us but it is however an absolute joy to support Australian handmade.
Here are some of the beautiful items we have not been able to pass up from Perth handcrafting geniuses!.....
We both bought two dolls each from the lovely lovely lady behind Elsie and Jim. They are simply too cute to pass up, she is just lovely and her prices are ridiculous!
The littlest Owls are receiving these gorgeous playhouses from the beautiful Nicola at Poppy and Bea - check out the photos, they really speak for themselves!!
I (Mrs Owl) can now be seen proudly strutting my stuff with my simply divine Charlotte shopper crafted by the clever Maz at Tex & Joe :
This stunning upcycled ring:
is a christmas present crafted by Robin Gage designs and purchased from the lovely ladies at foxes of fancy. They have so many beautiful goodies which are all entirly 100% eco friendly to boot!
Robyn at Focus on Art is the mastermind behind this beautiful elephant gifted to MY beautiful elephant earlier this year:
and another of her amazing pieces is heading to a lucky family member in Sydney for Christmas as we speak!
We are both proud owners of delicious handmade necklaces from Handmade by Elbie - can you really blame us?
ALL The Owl and the Elephant offspring will soon be spending their time madly playing these amazing handmade games crafted by Amber from Mollydagmade
This cute as a button "superhero" dress was custom made for Miss Owl by the wonderful Victoria at Brusselsprouts and is definitely a favourite! As is the matching pirate set modelled by Master two!
What have been some of your favourite handmade purchases? We would love to hear about them!!
Thought of the moment:
When women are depressed, they eat or go shopping. Men invade another country. It's a whole different way of thinking. ~Elayne Boosler
