Town Halls

I love a market in a town hall. All that history, faded glamour and hints of wonderful events past. Over Easter I was at the Daylesford Makers Market at the Daylesford Town Hall. I loved the sun shining through the old windows through the ironwork, views of chimney stacks through the second floor, the old numbered theatre seats in the stalls, the pressed metal roof, old portraits – it was all gorgeous. The market itself is great too, and it was lovely to meet people I’ve met online, but not face to face – thanks for saying Hello, it topped off a fabulous day!

Our preparations for another trip into the countryside was complete with Allison’s suggestion to go along the Calder Highway through Woodend to sample their highly prized vanilla slices. Because you know I love a country bakery. We discovered, without a shadow of doubt, THE VERY BEST VANILLA SLICE EVER. Hoorah!

Mmm, see the one’s on the bottom shelf, with the white icing? PERRRR-FEC-TION!

Allison also posted a lovely write-up of the market at her Lark blog and I’m very flattered to have my necklace included in her post. Jo from Frankie and Ray also posted a gorgeous picture of one of my necklaces on her post (as becomingly modelled by ‘Barbara’) – thanks lovely girls, I’m glad you like your new necklaces!
