Vintage find

After spending my Sunday morning with the "vicious cycle" of domestic chores e.g cleaning, washing and the laundry, I thought I would reward myself by visiting a local arts and craft market. I was on the lookout for anything vintage and quirky.

My daughter and I headed towards Windsor markets, only 55 Km north-west of Sydney.

It's situated along the George Street mall in Windsor and on every Sunday from 9.00am-3:30pm. What I like about the market is it caters for everyone. There are organic fruit and vegie stall, crafts, fashion for young and young at heart, pottery, jewelry, hand made soaps, homemade preserves, plants and the list goes on...

There are also few choices of shops in the surroundings and cafes. One of our faves is Windsor Seafood. People from near and far come to Windsor to taste their signature fish and chips. The service is excellent, the staff are friendly, fresh seafood and truly their fish and chips is tops. Outside the cafe, there's a South American Macaw, who attracts everyone by his looks and his squawks. No one walks past him without taking his picture.

 This is one of my fave shops along George St. It is called The Farmer's daughter jewellery; it's a little store of different interests; vintage homewares, recycled fashions, some vintage fabrics, quirky jewellery (not the sort you'll find in an ordinary stores). Here I found my vintage table cloth which was perfect for my table on the back verandah.

And here it is; I love the brown, blue and green floral print; perfect for these two tables.

And the star of my day were these "cheeky" salt and pepper shakers. Isn't he the most daring and cheekiest little fellow? He will stand out amongst my collection of salt and pepper shakers. I will share the rest of my collection next time.

A couple of weeks ago I took a picture of this Phalaenopsis orchid. I only started collecting orchids from last year. And this year is the first time that I will see them flower under my care.
