great find

Bought the pretty little pot from Karoo in Pretoria for a whole sixty five rond! The amazing napkins are from our local Spar - dead amazo, right?

This is one of our gorgeous original Leigh Harrington's! I have been keeping her safe while I tried to find the perfect vintage frame which we did last Saturday! Thanks SPCA - twenty five rond is quite a steal. I am still not 100% sure about the backing, I may do grey stripes rather. What do you think?

i want to be the weeeener!

Oh heavens I want me this bad boy so darn bad! My favorite, most ultimate blogger is giving this beauty away on her blog, Lucky Pony. I probably shouldn't be blogging this as it may decrease my chances of winning it but what the heck  here's hoping spreading the love will be to my benefit. Go check it out!

a tribute to movember

Mr. Rabbit seen here sporting an oh-so-dashing mustache made by none other than, yes you guessed it, me! Red Rabbit Ears is my new design label! Exciting! I have launched my jewellery range on my website and will get cracking on the Etsy shop ASAP. I hope to launch my range of prints real soon. ♥

nanhua buddhist temple

On our way to Mpumalanga we stopped off in Bronkhorstspruit to check the Temple out. It was still closed and we got told to come back at 9 but we didn't have time so we snapped a few snaps and headed on our way. Def wanna go back and have a good old nose around. So intricate.

mpumalanga

As an incentive for reaching (and surpassing) his million, Gary got a weekend away on the company. First off I wanna give him a huge HIGH FIVE! You little over-achiever, fancy-face, lover of mine! Well done! I am dead proud of you. We went Crystal Springs up in Mpumalanga and it was beautiful to say the least. If you want pretty, pretty, pretty, where ever you eyes may fall, this is most certainly the place for you. Little log cabins on a mountains edge, I don’t have a photo – what a boob – only a video. The pine forests are everywhere and there is so much heritage to soak up. We visited Pilgrims Rest, Gods Window, the Pinnacle, chickened out of the Big Swing, Bridal Veil Falls and the Sodwala Caves. Wish we had more time, 3 days was just not enough.

ryan for the weekend

Happy weekend y'all!

babies

If you know me you know how much I absolutely adore Christmas. I blame my mother! And this year I can hardly wait. Why? Because of the babies!!! Lil'ins always seem to make the festive season even more festive. My mama is going all out this year, to say I am excited is the understatement of the century!

new vintage for the wall

Found these little beauties in a Melville Charity Shop. They were all very dirty and dusty and in need of a good old clean and a couple of nails. My fav is the old fella at the bottom. Welcome to the wall!

diy - desk

Hey Y’all! and welcome to my new home! Yay for fresh starts J Loads has happen in the past few months between building this blog and my last post over at TALT… Gary and I are now official fiancĂ© and fiancĂ©! Can I get a HELLZ YEAH BITCHES! So much planning and crafting and planning! Man it’s like Virgo heaven up in here! And Captain Sparkles (my ring) is just so darn pretty!!! I have finally stuck to a diet and started getting my weight under control! At my last weigh in, 2 weeks ago, I was officially 12kg’s down! Man alive, I am so proud of myself, who knew I had this incredibly strong, stubborn mind? Hey mind, where in heck have you the past 27 years? My hair is now officially ginger and I am loving it! Suites my pale, freckled complexion. Great change from mousy blond. I have embarked on a new little venture, the realization of a long time dream really, which y’all will find out about soon enough eeek! J I’ve been saving this post for some time now, waiting for my layout and a few other things to be 100%. Found this little baby sitting around collecting dust and junk in one of our hangars and fell head over heels in love with it. Turns out this desk is from Zimbabwe and is over 30 years old.

We gave it a good clean and a bit of a sand (which didn’t do much because it has a laminate top). We then gave it a lick of grey enamel satin finish paint on the “wood” bits and white gloss on the frame and legs. We added some character by applying a line of scales I designed and had cut out of white vinyl to the top of the desk and the front of the drawers. We finished it off changing the knobs to these fancy crystal ones J Isn’t it so pretty. Because my studio is so full I am currently using it as my dressing table.
