Devonport Craft Market.

Tomorrow, my daughter and I are excited about having a table at the Devonport Craft Market.
What better idea could you have than spending a leisurely day in Devonport, having a romantic breakfast followed by a meander through the craft market ~ perhaps picking something up for that special someone of yours.
So if you are in the area, please come and visit.

I have been busy preparing for the market, lots to do, so I look forward to coming to visit you all.
Thanks for visiting my blog and I hope that you are having a fabulous weekend.



  1. Hi Carolyn
    I so hope the market day went well! Looking at your very clever goodies makes me wish I could have visited. I love craft markets! Amanda xx

  2. Hi Carolyn,

    How wonderful, that sounds such fun. All your goodies for the market look just gorgeous and I am sure they will be popular. Now for my big dummy question. Is Davenport on the North or the South Island, and do you have far to travel. I should have listened better in Geography class shouldn't I. Have a lovely day with your daughter.

    Hugs, Christine. xxx

  3. Hi Amanda,

    The market is tomorrow, so have left everything until the last day, for tags and labels.
    Thanks for your visit.

    Hi Christine,

    Thanks for your kind words - hoping to go and visit your Valentine show, and good luck with it.
    Devonport is on the North Shore, of Auckland. Have to get the 8am ferry so should be heading to bed.

  19. Hi Carolyn, I hope you have a great time at the market! It sounds perfect to me. I adore all the things you have made to take to it. Everything is just so lovely. Those little bears all waiting to go to their new homes. The clay creations are darling and those are sure to be a favorite with the shoppers.
    I have to tell you how much I enjoyed the post befor this one. Your hearts are so pretty and I'm sure you made those too. I agree that it is not the gifts of love we receive, but the love itself that is so important. The little things we do for each other everyday. I loved the beach story.

  20. thank you Michela and I hope that you had a wonderful Valentines Day.

    Thank you very much Kim for your kind words and I hope that you are having a great weekend.

    Hi June,

    I couldn't agree more, it is not the gifts that we get on the day, but the love we have for our special Man, every day. Thanks for your visit and kind words.


  21. Carolyn, who could ask for a better day? That sounds wonderful - I do wish I could I be there to enjoy it all. Your dough decorations are adorable. I hope you had a fabulous day and today, enjoy your Valentine Day!
