scenes from the weekend...

farmers markets, new (to me) magazine issues, homemade laundry powder and plaited hair... (plus a LOT of school work - but those arent fun photos)

...a few goodies that i have picked up at the op shop over the last couple of weeks. since i have started back at work i am not getting much (slash ANY) time to thrift which is making me feel a bit out of sorts and unbalanced (because a balanced life should involved op shopping.. :) ).

some of these treasures will be setting up home in my house while others will be heading to the suitcase rummage markets next weekend to find a new home.

p.s - does anyone else have trouble with landscape pictures being automatically turned into portrait by blogger??
