I had the loveliest day today. Hayley & I went off the a craft show known as Paperific. Aimed at scrapbookers & card makers there were stalls displaying the goods we crave.
I was a bit disappointed with the number of stall holders. At previous shows there were many more & there was always something new to see. Perhaps I've been to too many as there wasn't anything new or really exciting to tempt me. Hayley & I perused all the stalls in 30 mins then went back & spent some money. I had to get something didn't I?? I mean, come on, I had virtually nothing left in my stash!!!
The best part of the show was meeting face to face with my blogger friend Anita. She was as lovely in person as I had imagined she would be from our blogging interactions. Then we met her friend Sandie who was also a lovely new find.
Thanks Sandie for the flowers they are sensational!
Anita had a gift for Erin which I'll tell you about separately, it was much appreciated & shows what a genuinely nice person Anita is.
I hope you girls enjoyed meeting as much as I did. I commented to Hayley on the way home how natural it all was, as if we had known each other for ever.
Not as successful was our lunch. We stopped at Poynton's cafe for lunch. It is a lovely cafe in a beautiful nursery setting on the banks of the Maribyrnong river. But Hayley's face says it all!
The face is because she ordered 'fish & chips'. Turned out it was a whole baked baby snapper, complete with head,eyes & bones.
Not the way she likes her fish at all. She carefully dissected & ate most of it (because it cost a bomb) & covered the staring eye with greenery.
She'll be a bit more careful in her ordering next time.
