The scorpion and the owl
Yesterday we went to the tiny and very quaint Mt Mee Country Market at, that's right, Mt Mee.
I love country markets, and this one really hit the spot, although I wouldn't advise making the trip solely for the purpose, it's at least a good excuse to get out of the city. It's on the first Sunday of each month.
The first thing I spotted when I walked into the hall was this scorpion brooch. The lady sold it to me for $6 which would be a bargain at twice the price.
I love my kitsch brooches.

This little hand made owl was $8.
I also got a brass plate to hang on the wall, which is inscribed with a name and 1970 on the back. It was $1!
My husband is not a fan, but hopefully he'll change his mind when he sees it 'grouped' properly.
After Mt Mee we headed over to Stanmore. Unfortunately Bellthorpe Road was closed due to a landslide. This was as far as we got.

Eric and Tom were not forgotten on our morning out. We got them some guinea pig food at the market, and stopped by the side of the road to pick them some organic, free range, fully country-fied grass.
I've also swapped our gardenias at the back door for some heartier euphorbias. The gardenias have gone in the ground downstairs and seem much happier.

Now we are into Monday, and thank the heavens we finally seem to have a cool change.
