A weekend in Hastings

This past weekend I spent in Hastings, which I was quite surprised to learn is only a three-four hour drive from our house.

My friend Michele and I went up for Fruit Bowl Craft Jam, which is a big craft fair that runs over a Saturday night and then again on Sunday. Here’s a few happy snaps from the trip…


I highly recommend some flowers for your car trip. These ones were for my stall at the fair – we transported them in two ginger beer bottles that sat in the cup holders.


I spotted this numbering in Woodville – I just liked the look of it.


I’d been into this second-hand shop in Woodville heaps of times before but only just noticed this great lino.


Just off the main road in Dannevirke was a great playground with adjoining rose garden. A great place for a pit stop and to scoff a (really good) sandwich from Black Stump Cafe.


This is a tiny little piece of my stall at the fair.


On the way home we stopped for a cup of tea at Mulberry Paper Cafe – a great place in the middle of nowhere that had really good chairs.


These blue roses gave me the mental rouse-up I needed to make the drive home.

In other news, I’ve listed most of my new Christmas stock in my online shop now.

    Hope you had a succesful outing at Hastings. Do you know that while I was viewing your photos here, which are as interesting as always, some lovely white snowy dots have been sprinkled over the screen? Is that your magic doing?

    It is lovely, never seen it before.
