This little piggy

Our local school is having a fair on Saturday, and the boys have talked me into trying my hand at a market stall. I’ve been working busily for the last few weeks, and now, mostly by sacrificing sleep and housework, I have quite a little cache accumulated.

mischief of monkeys

A tribe* of monkeys. Any remaining after their big day out will be making an appearance on etsy.


A festival of balloon balls. These were inspired by the beloved balloon ball I loved and lost as a kid.


Since I’m on the topic of collective nouns, let’s call this a flotilla of soaps.

Front stack, top to bottom is spice cake, lemon myrtle and vanilla bean, honey and oatmeal, and lavender and fresh cream.
Back row from left to right; peppermint and cardamon, bergamot and black pepper, gumball, and geranium and french clay.


And a covey of wraps. I was originally intending to use up my stockpile of PUL fabric, however a brief googling informed me that polyurethane laminate isn’t approved for use with food. Some more research and fun experimentation ensued, and now we have a stack of gorgeous smelling beeswax wraps. The bit I love is that at the end of their life they can even be composted! They sure were fiddly to make though. Next time I’ll dig out Mum’s Print Gocco and whip up a snazzy logo, just for fun.

*One of the official collective nouns for monkeys. Other options were troop (too militaristic for me), a barrel (how on earth monkeys first came to be associated with barrels is probably something I don’t want to know!) and a cartload (an equally unlikely method of transporting of monkeys, I should think!) Personally I think a mischief of monkeys would be a more fitting description.
