And this little piggy went to market

What a glorious weekend! The sun has not stopped shining since I finished work on Friday and apart from having to study its been a pretty great weekend.
On Saturday I headed to the Gorham house markets (which is mostly second hand stalls and yummy food) where I picked up this lovely skirt, which I am planning on wearing to work with a white shirt in my pursuit of bringing colour to my workplace.




It is such a brighter green than in these pics but I couldnt quite capture it.

I also grabbed this Women's Weekly cookbook. I am obsessed with these cookbooks ever since I was given all my mum and grandma's copies. They have such homey receipes and remind me of two amazing women in my life.
I think this one will be great for summer because there is so much delicous fresh produce at the moment.


On my way home I saw a church fete and decided to have a look. They had a huge white elephant where I got these for $1 each.



I use to be so anti - second hand shopping when I was younger. Dont ask me why, I think the thought of buying other peoples seconds didnt really appeal to me but now I cant get enough of it. Some my friends are amazing thrifters and I think I am slowly getting the hang of it too.
And look what else I found....

CHERRIES!
I didnt even know they were out yet but one little farmer was selling them for $5 for half a kilo and I could not resist (that bowl was full an hour ago).
Hope everyone had a lovely weekend!
