So having finished the bag, finally, I rewarded myself with another outing. This time a visit to Willunga. Fortunately for me (maybe not my purse) the Willunga Farmers Market was on today. Apparently it is held every saturday from 0800-1230 hrs. Such lovely quality produce from local regional makers - in amongst the usual fruit and veg producers ( not to be scoffed at - their produce was top knotch) were olive oil products, artisan breads, bee and wax product, wines, jams and chutneys, flowers and herbs and the most beautifully crafted handmade pasta that had vibrant natural colours. It didn't take me long to spend $50- pasta , flowers, persimmons, plums , sourdough bread and lavender brownie devoured in a matter of minutes)
First stop the vineyard. Its a lovely time in the hills at the moment with the green grasses from the rains and still a few Autumn leaves clinging to vines before the real cold settles in.
I bought a bag in an op shop for $5 just for the hardware - it had plenty of buckles and straps that I could pilfer for my bag. I could have gone with a tan colour which was equally nice against all the vibrant colours.
So short handles for shopping bag mode. It really is a very large bag and comfortably fitted in all the above mentioned purchases.
When you clip together the side straps it becomes a triangular bag. It makes it a little more secure if you dont have a lot in the bag and want to protect your purse as the top opening becomes considerably smaller.
With the long strap attached to the side loops it becomes a carry all that you can sling over your shoulder.
My purchased proteas make a stunning accompaniment with my bag
Who doesn't like an old wagon? This one was waiting for me on the side of the road
After the photo shoot I couldn't resist stopping in at Dowie Doole winery....more quality stuff (wines) I couldn't resist! A few came home with me.
And just a few shots after I visited the winery. Pity I can't take you for a little winery tour, it was really good. mmm mmmm. I had the whole winery to myself as well, so it was really special to get such undivided attention.
Glorious light on a glorious day
Thanks for sticking with me. Cheers! Monique x
