Yesterday was a gorgeous morning, so jumpers at the ready, Hubby and I grabbed our bags and headed out to the Museum Markets. We needed food and a little adventure with my camera. I was excited. It had been a while since I had just taken photos for photo taking sake. Hubby was freshly shaved. I didn’t realise until I knew how much I saw his whole face again. Gosh I missed that face.

We strolled the aisles and aisles of tents packed with books, food, vegetables, soap and tables and tables laden with home-made jams and preserves. Our $60 flew out the window in moment after moment of impulse purchases.Soon we had enough fruit and vegetables to get us through the week. A no sugar added cake, pumpkin muffins and a mustard pickle.

A little more wandering and we stumbled across a table laden with colourful and sweet-smelling soaps. Beautifully presented, they called to me. I asked if I could take a picture, mentioned I had a blog. Me too, she said. And Karen and I met. Karen blogs at Granny’s Garden. Her soaps are sold under the name Soap Cottage. We grabbed a soap kabab and were on our way.

A gorgeous day. A beautiful market. I love my town.
