Last weekend my friends convinced me that it would be a good idea to get up super early and head across town to the Camberwell Market, a street market held every Sunday morning in a carpark behind the shopping strip in Burke Road, Camberwell (an eastern suburb of Melbourne). The market is popular with collectors, and with 350+ stalls there's plenty of fossicking to be done. There are numerous trestle tables set up with bric a brac, collectibles, pre-loved clothing and shoes, books, music ... pretty much your standard market fare. On this visit all I managed to pick up was a cheap Kodak Instamatic camera (which I'm yet to try out), some flowers and some plants for the garden.

On Saturday we had some glorious sunshine here in Melbourne, so the Mr and I decided to check out the farmers' markets at the Gasworks Arts Park, and seeing as how we were in the area, I thought it would also be an ideal opportunity to visit ceramicist Shelley Panton’s Middle Park shop and studio. Shelley was taking part of Craft Victoria's Craft Cubed open studio events that day, and even though I was about twenty minutes too early to watch Shelley hard at work on her potters wheel, she was kind enough to let me take some photos of her gorgeous shop to share with you on the blog today.

I thought I'd kick start things off this week with the work of British illustrator Millie Marotta. Millie works as a freelance illustrator in her studio by the sea in Wales. Growing up in the middle of nowhere led Millie to develop a mild obsession with flora and fauna, and this, along with intricate pattern and detail, plays a big role in her work. Millie enjoys working in traditional and digital media, and has produced work for Virgin Atlantic, Howies, Timberland and HUCK magazine.

First up there's Hold Tight, which has been developed as part of the Day-tripper collection in collaboration with the London Transport Museum, and is based on their collection of vintage bus tickets. The pattern is available on wallpaper, cushions and tea towels in mustard, British lichen and harvest orange colourways.
