Poppyseed Markets Stockland Wetherill Park | Review

Festival Girl Rates: 6/10
I must admit, the last time I visited the Poppyseed Markets in Penrith, was probably a little while back. But you know what, I think that is really what makes it so great. Going around to all these Festivals that I go to, it can sometimes be difficult getting to all of them, especially if they on only once a year and it can be hard to get to everything. So obviously what’s great about the Poppyseed Markets is that they organised quite frequently throughout the year and fairly distributed all over Sydney, to give everyone the opportunity to get to the Markets. How great is that?

For some reason, the stalls were spilt up across the mall, so I didn’t realise there were a few more stalls until it was too late. I guess that is something that the organisers thought would work, but I think it can be a bit confusing for patrons with some missing out on all the market fun. I’m sure there was some method to their madness.

Summerblossom was one of my favourites of the day. The lovely vendor has only been with Poppyseed Markets for about 12 months but is loving it! Her approach to her stall styling is so professional and really is just darling.

The colour scape include beautiful neutral tones, lovely peach and pink and splashes of white lace.

I can totally see these beautiful headpieces for bridesmaids on a summer beach wedding or a natural garden setting. Really can’t get enough.

Butterfly Garden Hair creates some cute accessories for kiddies.

Now I just loved the styling for Pretty Little Things. White wooden frames with delicate dimples, lovely lace pieces, beautiful tickled pink flowers and shabby chic furniture – what’s not to love?

A little lacey outfit – just adorable

Hardy har har – pirates singlet!

Oh so sweet woolen beanie with soft flower

If you still wanna check it out, Poppyseed Markets still on today at Stocklands Wetherill Park.
I hope to see you there next time,

Poppyseed Markets | Stockland Wetherill Park

If you are in the neighbourhood, the Poppyseed Markets are on TODAY at Stockland Wetherill Park. I am curious to see how it will look considering it is inside a mall – just saying since most markets are usually stand alone.

19th – 22nd April | Stocklands Wetherill Park

Craft and Sewing Show Rosehill Racecourse 2012 Review

Festival Girl Rates: 7/10The Craft and Sewing Show was a blast! I do apologise for the delay, life unfortunately got in the way, but here is the post anyway! So I went to the Craft and Sewing with a couple of my girlfriends who had an absolute ball. Now I am notorious for hanging out at a store for over an hour, just examining all the potential things I could get. I mean, I really love to look, pick up, touch and learn about all things that are creative. But my girlfriends really took the cake – I mean, I did a serious loop of taking photos and they were still in the same stall I left them. Hilarious! I was so happy to see them really enjoy themselves and that were able to buy some of their future craft products. How excitement!
I heart this birdcage chandelier

I love random lace appliques, so pretty from LaceNTrims

Thanks for letting me take snaps at LaceNTrims

Although I’ve seen the Twiddleybitz store before at previous craft markets, I’ve never really been all that tempted to buy one. However, this day, I really was tempted. And I’ll show you why.

How cute is this cupboard? I totally fell in love with it. So how does it work? Well, all the items come as pre cut pieces that you glue yourself and paint and decorate how you want. However this is what gave me the idea for my cupboard – and below is my version. See I got some fly screen, cut them to size so I could put some of my earrings on it. I also put a mannequin cutout for more earring space, a decorative mirror and pretty cushion I made for the cupboard.

It took a number of man hours, but I’m proud my first attempt. What do you guys think?

How adorable – mini chairs and jewellery box. I think this would make a really cute pin cushion

There are SO many different designs and patterns, it is crazy overwhelming. I loved this carnival themed piece in the middle. It’s just great!

I bought an adorable (giant) owl, who I decided to call him Owl Pacino – get it? I got it from this Kraft Kingdom – I did take a card, but I have since misplaced it. I will update with details when/if I find it 🙂

Pitt Trading
is one of my all time favourite craft and vintage stores. The stall is just breathtaking, it is always impeccably presented and has the most amazing vintage items, home wares and textiles at pretty affordable


Now I am not the best sewer (although I try) So my girlfriends and I decided to take one of the free sewing seminars. In this make and take class we used Brother sewing machines, which was super easy to use even a novice like me got the hang of it (eventually.) It’s a pretty cute little bag and the perfect place to start if you want as easy project. If you want the free tutorial, see it here FreeBagTutorial

If you did go to the Craft and Sewing show this year – why not tell me all about it?

Hope to see you there next time

Love, Festival Girl
