This month's Made With Love market was a celebration of local art, craft, produce and - of course, being just a day before Mother's Day - the perfect chance to pick up something very special to spoil the mum in your life.
You can see the whole album of photos over here if you're so inclined.
Hope you're having a great week!

A colleague recently brought a glut of fresh figs in to work - which has inspired me to try and find some great ways of using figs in cooking. Here are some very inspiring indeed ideas ...
- Roasted Fig Tart via What Katie Ate
- Fig and Chambord Jam via Forty-Sixth At Grace
- Pork Steak with Port and Figs via Nigella
- Jamie's Baked Figs via Jamie Oliver
- Fig Clafoutis via Taste
- Baked Lime Cheesecake with a Fig Salsa via Souvlaki for the Soul
Do you like figs? Or have a favourite way of eating or cooking them? If so, please feel free to share in the comments - I'd love to hear about it!

// MOTHER'S DAY LUNCH WITH THE PARENTICALS AND A KOOKABURRA //
Mum, Dad and I had a lovely Mother's Day lunch at Hellyer's Road Distillery this afternoon. It's literally just up the road from my new place. They ate traditional roast pork, while I had pork belly with an Asian style noodle salad. We drank bubbles and Sauvignon Blanc and made friends with a kookaburra outside the window. Dessert was eaten - banoffee pie, white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake and tiramisu - in case you were wondering. The rain came down and it got dark and cosy.
Happy Mother's Day mum - and all the other mums out there - including all the ones who want to be and can't, who were and have lost, who are and aren't recognised for it. We love you. xx
Linking up with Em and her Weekly Stills on The Beetle Shack.
P. S. Congrats Em, on the arrival of sweet Elke - she is gorgeous! xx

MEAL: SWEET POTATO CHIPS WITH MUSTARD SALT VIA DONNA HAY // TABLE: IN MY KITCHEN VIA THE SHADY BAKER
Something about Jane's rustic and retro cool table really sits well with Donna Hay's sweet potato chips recipe. They're both classics, but with a new spin.
