LGB will "bee" here in June and July! Coming?

Lime Green Bean will be at the Blos Mark at the Blos Cafe on the 23 June 2012 from 10am - 3pm and there will be heaps and heaps of fun as always.

The theme is honey and bees - how sweet is that?

I will be making some special bee inspired goodies for the market, so be sure to watch this space for a sneak peak!!

Such lovely photos!

Lime Green Bean had such an awesome time at The Fat Olive Organic & Craft Market this past Saturday. I met some fantastic people and it was so lovely to feel part of a community. I will definitely go again when I can :)

I wanted to take some photos of my stand, but.. as luck would have it my cameras batteries were totally flat! Fortunately Tiaan was super kind and offered to take some for me. He has a whole bunch of other photos of the market on his blog, so be sure to have a look!

Aren't they lovely? Thanks so much Tiaan!!

 It still has my name and address in :)

Yummy! Felt Food!

Hope you all have a super day!

Looks like I will be spending all my money at the market this Saturday.. everything looked so delicious and lovely last time and promises to be the same this weekend.

Just look at this beautiful photo taken at the last market by Jeanette that I spotted on her blog! Lovely - isn't it?

Journey2Joy has moved!

For those of you that don’t know about Journey2Joy, you have really been missing out!

It’s an amazing little shop in Pretoria, in Garsfontein to be exact that stock a number of Lime Green Bean goodies and many other lovely handmade treasures.

Earlier this week they moved from a quaint shopping centre in Serene Street, to 510 Serene Street which is an exciting new venue basically just across the road from where they were.

Photo taken by Laura

Now they have loads of space to host pamper parties, and all sorts of exciting things! So make sure you follow them on twitter or facebook  so you don’t miss out on any of these!

Laura owns Journey2Joy and she is really one of the kindest people I was blessed to meet earlier this year. I want to wish her and Madri only beautiful things and great success for the future!

A lovely Market Day!

Lime Green Bean was delighted (to say the very least) to be at the Blos Mark this past Saturday.

It was amazing – the atmosphere was so relaxed and really reminded me of my many years in Cape Town!

There was so much fun for the kids and they were literally standing in queues to have their faces painted and when I saw how amazing they looked, I kind of wished I could have mine done too!!

There were also balloon animals for all the kids and of course the piñata was an absolute hoot! It took many a man to get that piñata open, but you can just imagine the elation thereafter!

Lime Green Bean stand

I really, really loved being there – the people were so friendly and loved my Lime Green Bean goodies – thank you all for your amazing support!

I just loved my little “shop” for the day – I worked really really hard, but it was SO worth it!

The Onesies were a real hit!

Lots of felt food and handmade clips!

Felt food display.. good enough to eat!

Bean Buddy Brooch kits

The market was perfectly organised and everything was beautifully presented and catered for. The Jazz band was awesome, and everyone brought their blankets and just relaxed under the big trees and had a really relaxing day .. and the food.. oh .. don’t get me started on the food..

I am happy to say that Lime Green Bean will certainly be at the next Blos Mark and I really hope to see you all there!

Take care,
