mathilda's market show and tell

got up bright and early sunday morning for our girl's day out at mathilda's market, norwood. i'm happy to say it was well worth the long drive and i'm soooo glad i decided to leave the boys and pram at home! i took little gracie and picked up my mum on the way. there was lots of lovely things to look at, only a couple of dodgy stalls. it was jam packed full people, snooty mums, bored dads, babies with the 'i'm over it' look on their face (including gracie!). they really should have an area set up for the poor old dads and children that get dragged along to these events. they could be playing pool or video games and socialising while we ladies shop til we drop. anyway back to the market, i came away with a georgous crocheted hat for gracie which i hope will fit her next winter. sure i could make one myself but for a measly 10 bucks.. meh! i'll let someone else do the work! i looooove the feather on it. so cute...

... and this darling playsuit for gracie for next summer by sebastian and sienna. how utterly sweet and girly is it?! i'm a total sucker for vintagey kittens. i became a 'liker' on their facebook page after being impressed with their lovely children's clothes at the last mathilda's market so it was lovely to see them again and meet the girls behind the label, peta and vanessa. and frankly, they had the best clothes by far. check em out here:

and that's all i bought. yep, the boys got squat. after a couple of laps around the market we stopped for some lunch on the parade, had the yummiest veggie burger ever, and then headed off. gracie was well behaved and put up with being carried around in the sling in the market hall, she started to complain but decided to fall asleep instead, good choice. it was a lovely day, especially since i rarely get to spend time alone (err, almost alone) with my wonderful mum. love you mum!
