Market day

I was glad to recently pay a visit to the Kalangadoo Faarmer’s Market, for their Spring Fair day.  The weather was a perfect Spring day, and visitors abounded.

Of particular interest to me was the Dodge farm vehicle.  I’d seen this particular vehicle once before, and admired the attention to detail on its restoration by the owner.  There was further work done to it, including the new roof – lined with jute.  The Australian Red Kelpie ‘minding’ the vehicle, was most friendly ( and got lots of treats from passersby!)

It’s always a friendly place to visit – I just wish it wasn’t so far from where I live at the moment!

A glimpse of my new direction :-)

Here’s a brief little teaser of some of which I’ve become involved in recently…….


I’ve belived for a long time that the Arts, and being Creative, is a way forward through the morass that humanity appears to have fallen into, to a place where individuality within community is to be celebrated and encouraged.

A chance meeting with a likeminded person almost a year ago is now giving form to that concept, although it’s still very early days and much is continuing to evolve.

So there’s a little Light on the subject for you 🙂
