This one goes out to Kezia

I think I might be developing a crafting problem.
Today I found this super cool applique book. I really want to make those soft watermelon slices.

Applique your way by Kayte Terry of This is Love Forever via My Love For You.

At Roseanne's house

Terence took this picture of Roseanne's collection of mirrors. How beautiful. Maybe one day ours will be just as impressive.

South Coast Scavengers

Here are some things we found in the South Coast antique shops:

1. Really pretty deer plate. Not sure if it's worth anything. I want to put it up on our kitchen wall as a start of a little plate flock.

2. The Clans and Tartans of Scotland book. I fell in love with the cover first and thought it would be someone's crappy school book. But then I discovered Her Royal Highness inside and a different tartan pattern on each page. And you can never have too much tartan...

We're going down again next week and I'm hoping those lazy South Coast shop owners got some more stuff for us to rummage through. I hope you are reading this lazy South Coast shop owners.

William Hundley of 'invisible things wrapped in fabric' fame...

...produces a photographic series with objects (and chihuahua) resting on cheeseburgers.
I have a lot of time for you Mr Will Hundley.

from snow to summer

This is what Belgrade looks like today:

My family is arriving tomorrow to 31ยบ in Johannesburg!
I can't wait to see them.

i heart market

I really love these posters for i heart market in Durban.

It's a food and design market that I would love to visit if only I could teleport myself to Durban on the first Saturday of every month. Organised by lovely Anna Savage, who not only has the best sounding name ever, but also bakes a delicious cherry pie. Well done Anna for making Durban even more nice and well done Tokyo design studio for those awesome posters.

well done adam and halligan.
