Fair at Battle Hill

A few weeks ago we dropped by a delightful craft and food fair at Battle Hill Farm Park, just outside of 

 The weather gods were with us and I loved the country atmosphere.

 Many of the crafts people also sell on Felt , a Kiwi on line marketplace for hand crafted goods. It's worth taking a look at this site.

 There were lots of activities for kids, including a tour of the air rescue helicopter.....don't you love the sheep in the background?This is, after all, New Zealand.

I succumbed to temptation and treated myself to a  brooch from Smash Palace, who make  jewelry from recycled old china, my second love next to fabric.


  1. Hello there.... Thanks so much for popping by....!

    This looks like it would have been a LOVELY market....Certainly the PERFECT setting....Sheep & all....!!
