Kalamunda Village Market and Light up Leederville Carnival this weekend

You can't miss this carnival! It is a great event to come along, enjoy great food, have fun with the kids, buy some handmade Christmas gifts and experience great entertainment (incl. fireworks) and music.

It on Sunday 7th December from 12 to 8pm in the streets of Leederville.
Please check this page for all the info

And on Saturday 6th December I will have my last regular Kalamunda Market on my usual spot. After over 8 years of monthly markets I need a little break. I decided that I want to spend more time at home with my two beautiful dogs and just sign up for occasional markets during the year.
It will be a little bit sad as I met so many great people during this time. But as I live just "down the hill" of Kalamunda I will now have the time to come along as a customer and still catch up with all my dear stallholder friends.

Hope I will see you at the markets this weekend.

And that's exactly what I am doing for the whole month of November.

Here are pictures of the results... and of course a couple of doggy pictures.

And then there was 3 and a perfect day

Let me introduce you to... Barney!
Barney is the latest addition to Libby's and my little family. 
He comes from Bunbury and needed a new loving home which we are so happy to give him. He settled in with the two of us just fine and we love him to bits.
Here some happy snaps of the very handsome and gentle boy:

Can you believe it? He actually has the same parents as Libby! I only found out afterwards when I checked the papers. This was meant to happen. Libby (2.5 years) and Barney (1.5 years) are getting along very well.

Today was a perfect day and I decided to take some pictures to share with you. Its the simple things that make us happy.

Sunshine, so I can hang the washing on my Hills Hoist in the backyard:

Picking some big lemons off the tree and make a mini lemon cake (that didn't last long by the way):

Enjoying the dogs, of course (instead of mowing the lawn):

Making a new dog bed and having it Barney-approved:

Sharing my sofa with my "babies":

And yes, I fit on that sofa as well, it's a bit tight but we love to snuggle ;-)

Hoping you enjoying your days as much as we do. 
Love from Caroline, Libby & Barney
