Hello! It's been a while since iv'e blogged, so sorry about this! I do have a really really really good excuse.....I've had my baby! You may or may not have known I was even pregnant as I didn't blog about it all that much. I did mention we were expecting a little man in my very early blogging days, in a post about cute clothes I had found for him! Anyway..he is here now, and I am inlove! He arrived on the 24th august. Although not officially spring, he was born at a time when the weather here in melbourne was shouting spring, with the blossom, and warm, sunny afternoons. We have named our little one, Percy Harold Carr. He is cute. He makes us laugh and I still can't get over the fact he was in me for 9 months! I love spring so much, and even more now that I have this little bundle of new life to share it with.

So, talking of spring, this post is to get you excited and in the mood about one of my most favourite ways to spend spring days(and now with little Percy)...going to spring fairs, fetes and carnivals! Ive been a fair addict for a while now, with my mother, sister and myself, doing fair/fete crawls every year! We have a list of when they all are and we basically, each weekend, go nuts going through the bric a brac, cake stalls, white elephant and lets not forget the devonshire tea! Today was our first for this spring, and it was GREAT! I thought I would share with you some of the favourite things I found at todays fair.

Percy and I, put on our sling, grabbed our shopping bags and headed down to Mullum Mullum Anglican Parish Fair in ringwood. It was a small fete, compared to some Ive been to that hire helicopters(they dont quite get it), but let me tell you, I left with 4 bags full of stuff!

50c old books, that I am going to read, then keep for Percy.
Home grown parsely, lemons and homemade chutney, $6.30
This red jug! Need I say more! $1
Preloved clothes! $8
Homemade chocolate cupcakes $1.50

Really good choc chip cookies $1.50
We also bought a gingerbread sponge cake, that got sadly squashed in my bag so couldn't take a good photo, videos and some kitchen accessories.
As this fair is now over, maybe write in your diary, for early september next year to grab your shopping bags and have a look what you can find!
I will blog about the next fair I visit, so keep your eyes tuned!
Thanks for reading!



  1. Congratulations!! and loving the red jug - gorgeous!!

  2. Ooo I love fairs and fetes. where do you find out about them all? Can you recommend any coming up in the next couple of months?
    Love love love the red jug too.

    1. We found out about our regular ones by seeing signs on school fences and reading the local paper. In october, there is a brilliant one on Bedford rd in ringwood, just near the station and on Oban rd in ringwood, opposite the shops! Have a look!
