1 of 3 done and dusted

We started with a blank canvas

Grange Market


Grange Market

and ended up with this
we were pleased with our efforts.
There were a lot of people there and it was very crowded for a while but it settled down.

Grange Market

Lydia had her face painted
I watched the face painter what a great job seeing all those smiles when they first look in the mirror to she what she has done.

Then the sun set

Grange Market

to leave us with this.

I did O.K. covered the cost of the stall and made some money so it is all good.
It was especially great to catch up with all our bloggy friends shame we didn't have more time to chat.

It was fun to come to the market and catch up....wasn't the sunset fantastic.....we were almost back to the Barossa by then - glad you had a good day!

Kate said...

Looks great! I find 'designing' the stall to be the hardest part. Glad you did well :-)

Love the little cat face. The gal did a great job.

Beautiful sunset.

Glad you got a photo of Lyd's face, Chris was grumbling about it. She waited for 3/4 hour took 15 minutes to do then he made her wash it off about 1/2 later to go to bed. Our stall looks fantastic from your shot. Going to hang more stuff from the tent next week(weather permitting).

Hey Leanne, great photos as always ... you professional you!!! The stall looked fabulous ... well done to you and Amanda. The crowd was crazy to begin with and the stalls a bit close together so was all a bit squeezy. But was great night to be out. Glad you got thru the first one good luck for the next two. See you at SSS. Cheers Sue

wish it had been a bit better than ok, but glad you aren't out of pocket. Your stall looks great and I love the bunting. I have been 'gunna' make some for ages.... did you back the triangles, or are they single sided?
Bet it was fun to catch up with some other bloggers.

Glad you made a bit of dosh. Yes I wish there had been more time for talking but there's always lunch sometime for gossip.

Leanne - a bit behind in my blog reading. The pictures are fantastic. They warm me up as I sit through yet another snow fall here in the Boston Massachusetts (US) area. I do like the snow actually, but this year has been a bit much. Glad you had a successful show! Mary in Massachusetts.
