balloons balloons everywhere

I came across this balloontastic engagement shoot on Green Wedding Shoes some time last week or the week before and keep going back to it just to have a good old oogle. I love it that much. Let me just say Joy your brain is a clever one! Photographs by Brittany Esther

Nanny Annie

This is a photo of my late grandmother. I'm not sure when it was taken, definitely before I was born. She was so beautiful! I miss her terribly. ♥

I reckon this photo has inspired me to dig through all my moms old photo's - it's project time!

HUS HAUS

I've been researching prefabricated timber frame homes lately. Dreaming the dream. Not only are they a hell of a lot lighter on the pocket, because of the shortened time & labour factor, but also pretty Eco-friendly compared to brick and concrete houses.
I stumbled upon these German beauties! All that glass. A-Frame. Modern interiors. Exposed trusses.  Fantastico!!!
I just wish we could get HUF HAUS here in SA or an equivalent. I've come across a few companies that are getting into it but nothing to this standard of design. Maybe by the time we're ready there will be.

Pandora

Louise Ebel, the captivating face of Pandora, is busy studying her bachelor’s degree in art history which is not only quite apparent but something I absolutely treasure about her blog. She explains that the photographs are scenes (conceptualized & styled mostly by herself) that will sometimes remind her of a specific piece of art or even inspire a shoot. I love the comparisons and the education quite frankly. Not to mention the clothes!!!  I just have to say how much I adore that she is so unconventionally breath taking... Gorgeous little French lovely! The translated English version of Pandora is impeccable, go have a read or just stare ♥

horses know the way home

We all know horses are close to my heart and this guy and his family are really the kind of marriage I strive for. Our animals teach us to live right here, in the present. 
Brian (the human guy) has had Brenda Lee (Shire mare) since she was a yearling, their bond speaks for it's self. Lucy (the wee Yorkie) and Brenda are sisters. Love and trust transcend species, colour or size! ♥
