About Me

My photo
My name is Kaye and I am 58 years old. Unbelievably to me, at my age, I have now just embarked upon my third career - as a History Education Consultant! I love to cross stitch and quilt, especially with my kittens, Furio and Milo "helping" me. I also love to read, I have a passion for history and I have been cooking since I was about 12 - move over Junior Masterchef! So, this blog, which started out as a cross stitch blog sometimes morphs into a reading journal or a history lesson (sorry, I used to be a secondary teacher before I became a publisher and now a consultant) or a post about my cooking mojo. Whatever it is, this blog is alway about me, my family and my life here in Eaglemont, Victoria. I have been happily married for over 30 years to the most wonderful man and we are blessed with three beautiful grown up children.

Rose Street Artist's Market...

Last week, I went with my dear friend, Franca and her gorgeous daughter, Anne (who is one of my DD's closest friends) to the Rose Street Artist's market in Fitzroy to buy a birthday present for our dear friend, Heather.

It was such a lovely morning ....


We bought her this gorgeous vintage Japanese kimono paper to put on her wall at her home.

... and there were lots of other lovely items to buy...



Then we went for brunch at Young Bloods Diner (strange name but lovely food) but managed to resist this gorgeous looking coconut cake!


That's all for now, folks, 

hugs,

Dear Kaye, have experienced a beautiful shopping in the market and bought you a nice gift for a girlfriend!
Coconut cake looks tempting, I'd like some piece :-)

Julie said...

Beautiful gift you chose. Not sure I could have resisted the coconut cake, that does look inviting.

Tiffstitch said...

wow, what a lovely place that looks! And good for you on the cake, although since I'm not a huge coconut fan, it wouldn't have been such an achievement for me to resist. :)

What a great place to buy gifts and the coconut cake looks delicious!

Bea said...

The market looks very inviting and I love the gift you chose. The cake looks lovely, but like Tiff, I'm not a coconut fan either so I probably would have passed as well.

Barb said...

What a lovely gift you chose. That market looks like a fun place to shop!

I'm not really fond of coconuts - but I would absolutely try THIS cake.
