It's almost the end of Springtime in my part of the world. October & November on the Rainbow Coast form part of the Kambarang Season in the Noongar Seasons Calendar and traditionally is known as the season where it is Warming, rains finishing, with longer dry periods and fewer cold fronts cross the coast. The height of the wildflower season. Noongar moved towards the coast where frogs, tortoises and freshwater crayfish were caught. The Noongar, having lived in the South West for centuries, have divided the year into six distinct seasons that are even more earth sensitive than our ancestors four.

I have been lucky to enjoy the beauty of our garden with our lovely day lillies
and the fruits of our labour in the vege patch.
Del from Get SPOONed and I had a successful market at the Summer Street Fair
and are stoked that lots of people will be enjoying handmade gifts this Christmas. One shopper told me that she was sending her purchase off to Scotland, another sending hers to Queensland and another to Adelaide ! Long Live the Hand Made Revolution !
and after such a busy market, hubby and I decided it would be nice to go out to dinner then we took a stroll across the footbridge to the new Entertainment Centre which looked surreal against the background of a stormy sky right on Dusk.
Markets are now over for Maddabling for this year, and it's time to get into the craziness that is the Festive Season.
Oh and we now have in our possession the divine painting "Connected" from the Art of Beauty Exhibition by Woz - it hangs in our loungeroom with pride.
Isn't it gorgeous ? The Maddabling ETSY store has reopened and I have got some brand new listings up - hope you have time to have a looksee xox
