Night time adventures...

They are the best but as Gary and I get older they get less and less. I miss them but I do love our day time adventures a lot too.

Three elements

The "center piece", if you will, is a good place to get most of your direction from. I started a clock collection and tried to aim for size & design - lots of twirls. I bought the bisked bunnies for a whole fifty rond each - the potter glazed and fired them for me. She also threw the wonky tea cup, which I lovingly painted.

Country Market

By the way if you are in Jozi this weekend be sure to stop by the Hertford Market on Sunday where my lovely mama has a stall. Come hungry and with lots of moola!!!

wearing your heart on your tree

You have all seen the photographs from the bridal shower – the culmination of months of planning and work, fun work! Can you even call it work then? I love making pretty things with my hands - putting on a great CD and just getting lost in what I am doing is pure bliss.

To thank all the guests for coming I did little favors. I had a whole lot in mind when I first started – hair pins with pretty felt flowers, little note books covered in floral fabrics and the list goes on. I don’t actually know how I settled on these little ceramic hearts but I am so glad I did. They are meant to be little Christmas tree ornaments. I thought they fitted the theme of Alice in Wonderland perfectly (the Queen of Hearts) as well as Love – Mel is getting married after all and Christmas is a time for love and family. All ties in beautifully.

I am very lucky to have a mom who is a potter and she did most of the work in making these little beauties but I did help and I learnt a lot.

Oh Alice!

Happy Monday everyone! I hope y'all had an amazo weekend! I know I sure did, the day finally friggen arrived... The one I had been planning since Craig popped the question back in February. I dunno, maybe you heard me mention something sometime... It was gorgeous to say the least and I am so chuffed I can finally spill the beans. It's been an amazing creative journey which allowed me to loose myself in my own imagination and get utterly carried away. I had Mel in mind the whole time of course and a lot of help - I reckon that's probably why it worked out so figgen well. It suited her everything down her stockings.

Without further delay, here are some gorgeous photographs taken lovingly by my sister from another mister, Chantie Pantie. Yes I really use cheesy lines like that all of the time
; )












We spent the afternoon celebrating in true Mad Hatters style, we were then chauffeur around for the eveing in a totally plush limo bus - dinner & pink cocktails first then dancing. Those photo's to follow, some "How To's" and even a peek at what our silly boys got up to : )

I love a little scandal on a Monday morning.

paint on your face






We just finished painting our lounge. I feel high. My house looks likes a bomb hit it and I have just discovered a blister on my finger. So worth it. We went with a really light grey as the main colour and a really dark grey for the feature wall. It looks awesome. I have also started packing the boxes with all the paraphernalia for Mel's bridal shower NEXT WEEKEND! Dam time has gone by so super fast!!! I hope y'all had an awesome amazo weekend!
