Pick of the week- Room Shoes and Reversible Dresses!!!

Room Shoes by Machiko Niimi

The story behind this find is a bit elongated..... but here goes- I was at the Thieves Alley Market in Dunedin this weekend.... and came accross the most gorgeous dresses, pants and bibs handmade by Fun Fair A talented dunedin based crafty entrepreneur:

The dresses are reversible too... I want to get one for my new niece who is due in April (YAY!!).... Sorry Lachlan they just arent your style.
I took her business card and have just looked at her website.... Somehow I came accross these Room Shoes, and whatdyaknow- also Dunedin based... so I am that much closer to finally aquiring some for myself.... assuming of course she still makes them, that I can track her down at the Seacliff market, and I have some pennies to part with.

You guys are awesome.... I love discovering local crafters.... I find it inspiring.

One Step Behind.... again.......

Here I go again- One step behind. I think I need to accept it as part of my new life as a mother- I have suffered in the 'on to it' department of my personality. I feel like Im always catching up. I really love writing on this blog, and have half written so many posts then dont publish them.... I must work on that. Once a week surely I can manage that right!

So todays post is dedicated to some on to it and inspiring bloggers (just 3 today though):
