Markets, Cupakes, Tea and a Biker Boy it's Saturday

Saturday, the day before Sunday, that comes well before Thursday ... which is when I will pick a name at random to win this little bunny ... comment on the post below and he can be yours ... 
  

Toddled off to the West End Markets this morning with an old friend who's back in town.   We had chai and some bread in the Autumn morning sun.  Bought a very cute little vintage teacup and un-matching saucer from a funny little guy in a white denim jacket.  It's so dainty and pretty, I love that it goes together but it's not a match.  I usually gulp tea from a huge (very ugly) cup with my work logo on it.  I love tea, I like a good half litre of the stuff, but sometimes it's nice to drink it (like a lady) from a proper little teacup.  

After the markets we stopped at the cupcake shop and bought some absolutely 'icing excess' cupcakes.  They are too cute, but not too cute to not eat.


When I got home the nicest boy I know called to see what lunch plans were ... no plans.  Got a visit from said nicest boy for lunch ... sigh ... boys and cupcakes and weekend sunshine are way too nice to forgo.  Now I'm back into the vapours of creativity and making more brooches ... the fox is my newest little animal for my REread brooches ...

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I have my second toy society drop finished, now just need to drop it somewhere.

The brooches you make are sublime, and your weekend sound like a dream. Can I borrow your life for a while :)

Oooh, now I wanna get hold of that book, 'My Mistress's Sparrow is Dead'! I prefer my Sparrows lively, but I love a good tail.

I suspect that fox got the Mistress's Sparrow, he has a lean and hungry look...!

Like Gabriel-Ernest (a wicked little tale by Hector Hugh Munro aka Saki) about a very, very dangerous boy.

That cupcake looks really good. I like the fox but I like the bunny better (I have a thing for the word "pixie").

Good for you. Cupcakes and boys do go well together I think.
