Yesterday was a friend of mines birthday drinks party. I whipped this little beauty up specially for her. I even designed the pattern. Perdy!
It's a mobile sort of thing made with chain, paper, ink, pearls, a crystal heart and links. You could hang in front of your window.

Well, that's what I call it anyway. I made this beauty for my very good friend Tracey, the surprise party I mentioned before. Gary found the sweet velvet box with the red bow. Almost didn't wanna give it away...

Okay not really and not that kind of blue bottle... they're from the Consol Factory Shop in Woodmead and are literally pretty blue bottles you would expect to find some treasure map inside. Man do I friggen ♥ that shop. These babies cost me a whole thirty six South African Rond! nooo waaayz! YES WAYZ! They make nice blue light in my bedroom.
It is also a recycling depot. Handy? I think so, possibly very dangerous for my purse too! They had the most amazing mini cake domes, which is aaasem! Wine glasses, anything glass cause their Consol right! Go there.
This is me sick, in bed and bored. The worst is over but I am still confined to home rest because it's contagious. The plus side is I feel I can stomach a cup of coffee. mmmm, how I have missed you my dear old friend.
I watched remember me yesterday and thoroughly enjoyed it. Pretty deep. Had a good cry.
Well have a good Friday the thirteen y'all and a flippen aaasems weekend! Which reminds me, I am totally going to a surprise party on Saturday and plan on wearing my new high waisted jeans! Fun times!

This, everybody, is my old girl. Exceptionally intelligent, highly pedigreed and so loyal it makes me crazy at times.
Sweetpea - Princess of the Universe!
I literally walk out the gate, then straight back in, Sweety watching me all the time. On re-entry she will jump a meter in the air with excitement, up and down, and, up and down!
My dad got her for me at the end of std. 9. I had been begging for a puppy of my own for months. So one day my dad and stepmom get home late afternoon. My stepmom comes inside and says that I am in big trouble and my father is waiting in the car for me. I reluctantly make my way to the passenger door and open it. I try sit down and he's all "No. No. No.!!!" I move his jersey, i still remember the colours, and there lies my biggest fan. Tiny and nervous and heartbreakingly gorgeous.
It was curtains for me at that very moment.
She is my oldest dog, my very first and I think the reason I have never written or shared her is because she is an uber personal part of my life - possibly an appendage.
Gaz and I are going on a ride now, now. Very exciting. Have an awesome time, whatever you're up to!!!

It's gonna be a flippen good weekend. Today is Friday for me (have to fetch my passport & my brothers drivers tomorrow) and my dad, whom I have not set eyes on since December, is coming up to JHB for the naweek bitches! (weekend)
Isn't he just the coolest dad you have ever seen?
She is so dam awesom! Man I wish I could have just the tiniest bit of her awesome! Designer, Illustrator, Fine Art, Typography, you name it this lady does it and is FLIPPEN good - that's the understatement of the century right there. And get this she is only 20! Great things still to come from this little lady!

Gorgeously written by my very good, not to mention exceptionally talented, friend and ex editor of FUNK magazine, Jeanne Mackenzie. Give it a read if you're into the SA/World music scene.

This is a photo I snapped of my awfully handsome boyfriend when we first started dating in late 2002 early 2003. He looks very young here, not that he looks old now but you get what I'm saying. Just thought I would share.
