7 Days of Loot, Glorious Loot - Day 1

I thought I'd start 7 Days of Loot, Glorious Loot with all the goodies that I purchased at the Made n' Thornbury Market on Saturday. This is such a fabulous market. It has a great atmosphere and lots of wonderful handmade goodies. I highly recommend a visit if you haven't made it yet. The next one is Sept 5th.

Gorgeous fridge magnets by Buttons By Lou Lou. I bought a couple of sets of magnets and I plan to pick up a few more.

Cushion by flickettysplits aka All Toile and No Reward. I tried to resist this purchase but I simply couldn't. It's stylish and every bit as comfy as it looks.

I heart brooches. The gorgeous birds are from Finki and the lovely Golden Book badges are from Cheeky Little Monsters. I wear a brooch most days so its nice to have a good variety to style up my life. I can't wait to give these ones an outing this week.
I love all my market purchases but this next one has a special place in my heart. It's made by Craving Frocks and it's a little pack of fancy scraps for little girls to make outfits for their Barbies. This little inexpensive pack of creativity filled my heart with joy. It reached in and connected with the little girl in me and I had to take one home. I've already been playing with it and planning to use it in some collages.

I feel like I've found a kindred spirit too because it's similar thinking to my Tinnies. A pack of goodies to inspire your creativity.

That's all I took photos of. However there were other goodies. A cupcake and other tasty treats from m.e. Another cupcake from another provodore - I had to share the love around of course. Coffee, of course. More of Buttons By Lou Lou's magnets, a wrist lanyard from CurlyPops for my keys and I think that's it. For today anyway.

Don't forget that you're welcome to play along. Details and sign up are in this post.


  1. Of course i am loving the Barbie scrap pack!!

  2. Fantastic haul from the markets! I especially love those magnets. Will have to search them out!

    This is a great idea, this week of lootage. You're fabulous!

  3. Great Buys. I went to Market on the weekend and as well as selling lots ..yay...I also bought some great things. I will post soon.

  4. Yippee for market loot!
    I'll have to post my market buys on Wednesday.

  5. Great buys... lucky girl. I got a soy candle this weekend at the little festival in my part of Philly. It smells like a creamsicle.

  6. oooh I got heaps at Thornbury too, might be day 3 or 4's post for me, I have so much to show. (: And you know what, I need magnets and totally forgot that when picking up some goodies from lou! Next time.
    Your selection is fab.

  7. I'm genuinely touched that these Barbie packs mean as much to someone else as they do to me. I cannot wait to see what you make out of my wedding dress scraps. ;-) If you want to see what I originally made out of that fabric, it's in the header of my Blospot!

    I have to get around to buying a Barbie and seeing what I can come up with using a Barbie pack. No cheating and using the rest of my stash!


  8. Lots of eye candy in this post! Those button magnets are adorable. I used to love making things for my Barbiew out of my Mum anad Nan's scraps!

  9. I'm having fun with your Loot meme, Tinniegirl - thanks! It's so nice to see my cushion here in all its splendour - and so good to know it's gone to a good home!
