Giveaway winners and market displays

Well we've just watched Toy Story 3 together after a long day at school. What a gorgeous movie, I think it's my favourite of the three!
Once the movie had finished I asked Mr to draw two winners out of a hat (okay there was no hat but you know what I mean) - and the winners are:
Tina and Chris
Please email me at mrsmonkei@gmail.com and let me know which colour you would like, and where to send it.
I hope you both like your baby bookmarks!

In other news, I have a good friend who has been helping me to get ready to head to market. She is also going to help me man the stall when the time comes. She's a creative type herself, and when I told her I'd like the stall to look a bit like a tree, she certainly hasn't disappointed me!

On the left is a cd rack that she found at an op shop. She has wrapped the metal parts with brown tulle and found some awesome leaves on wire which we wrapped around the entire thing, with a little help from a glass or two of wine on a saturday night. It is going to make an awesome bookmark/keychain display.

The circlular thingo on the right is an embroidery hoop with brown tulle in the middle and leaves around the outside - an earring display that will still be effective when the earrings are already on cards.
I would never have thought of this stuff myself, how clever is she!

Wow! very creative!
I love the embroidery hoop idea for earrings!

Thanks Dyani! I am a little worried about using both things at my first market in Nov though as I only have a *very* small table... not sure which one to leave behind!

In that case, maybe the stand would be better. it's really eye-catching and might make people stop to look at what it is, and then see your gorgeous goodies! And it looks as though you could fit more on it than the hoop.
