Eco Market Buys

I had so much fun shopping at last weekend's BrisStyle Indie Designers Eco Market that I thought it only fair to share my loot with you.

A babushka mosaic trivet from Cairo Made That. Voyt actually chose this as he drinks a lot of tea and it is the perfect size for resting his mug.

A Julia Gillard doll from Wicked Child Designs. I was totally fascinated by the fact that a doll with buttons for eyes and hair of felt could bear such an uncanny resemblance to a real person.

Creator Teneale Muir has such a wicked sense of humour. Each doll comes with a mini canvas depicting a message. Can you read this one? It says, "Sorry Australia, you won't be getting your tax refund. Prime Minister Julia Gillard spent it all on her hair".

I love brooches even though I tend to lose them or cruelly put them through the washing machine. This sweet poppy was felted by Sandrine Marsh. Watch this space as I have ordered a hand-felted vest that is being made especially for moi by Sandrine.

I couldn't resist these pretty cushions by Moose & Bird who I blogged about here.

More pretty vintage fabrics were used to make these bookmarks by the sister team of Beckybean.

And don't ask me why but I bought yet another vintage embroidery book. I just find these so inspiring even though I know I shall never have the time to embroider. This was part of Edward and Lilly's moving sale. As you can see, I did my part in supporting the local community and recycling. Did you find any little treasures this week?

Nice purchases! I was chuffed to find out that I won one of the raffle baskets — yay for me!

My winning streak is totally out of control right now…
