The year is winding down…..

Hello friends……..in some ways I can’t believe this year is almost done, but on the other hand I just want it all to be done now so that we can relax and enjoy some holiday time!!!

I am closing the shop on Friday (please try to get any orders in by the end of tomorrow if you can) and will re-open sometime in late January (I haven’t finalised a date yet). I still have a few calendars left if anyone is interested – such a fun gift!!

The Treasury Christmas Market is tomorrow!!

Good morning friends. I woke up to the news this morning that we have all been expecting to come – but it nevertheless has a profound effect on all of us. Madiba was and always will be an inspiration to all of us, and I just hope that his passing will re-kindle our sense of love, understanding and togetherness as South Africans, who all wish the best for our country and each other. It is a sad day, but a day to celebrate a great man – and to be grateful for what he did for each and every one of us. Without him we would all be in a very different place. Thank you Madiba.

Treasury Chritmas marketSo – real life still goes on, and tomorrow is the Treasury Christmas Market here in Stellenbosch!! There will be more stalls than usual, with the most amazing handmade goodies for you to spoil your loved ones with! So – come and join us for some shopping, good food and great times!!

2014 Calendar

Hello again!! In amongst everything else that I have been occupied with in the last while I found the time to put together another calendar!! (This time I have triple checked for errors……..).

2014 Calendar

The calendar is A5 size, printed on thick cotton card, and has a lovely twine loop to hang it from. The cost of the Calendar is R120.

Please get in touch soon if you would like to order any. I will be closing orders on Thursday 12 December (next week eeeek!!!) and will send the last orders out on Wednesday the 18th of December. I have not yet decided when the shop will re-open but will keep you posted!

I’m back – at last!!!!

Hello Friends – I just checked the date of my last post and can’t believe its been THAT long – I honestly thought it was about 4 weeks…. I am terribly sorry!!! I’m not quite sure how to explain myself except to say that I am going through a bit of a “creative flux” at the moment. That together with all sorts of things on the home front has put me in a state of wanting to chat to you all,  but not quite knowing what to say……..

And in this time that has passed we have seen the peony season come and go!! Such lovely beauties – and yes I had a few bunches!! I took this picture at the Okkasie stand at Kamersvol Geskenke.Peonies at Okkasie(Kamersvol Geskenke 2013)

So – what have I been up to you ask? Well – I visited Kamersvol Geskenke here in the winelands, and it was (yet again) a lovely inspiring day. I so enjoy having a look at all the creations of our talented local artisans. I purchased a few lovely goodies for my office and home. I was at The Treasury Market here in Stellenbosch at the beginning of November ( the Christmas Market is this weekend coming!!), and a week ago I was at  “pop-up” market at my lovely friend Su’s home.  I collaborated with a lovely group of wedding vendors (photographer, wedding dress designer, make-up and hair artists, cake decorators and florist) on a wedding shoot (which I will share with you all when the pictures are ready). I’ve also been sewing more fabric creatures, and have been really enjoying creating little individuals. I’ve had a few custom orders which have been such fun to work on. I’ve also been knitting and this past weekend I took a Tunisian Crochet class!! You see – in a state of creative “flux”………..a basket of little creatures

On the home front we’ve also had some drama. Some of you may have heard of the flash flooding that led to the evacuation of the hospital in Somerset West – well my poor hubby’s entire practice was literally destroyed. They are radiologists so you can just imagine the scale of damage – ALL the equipment has been written off. And it’s not the kind of machinery you can “pop out” and buy more of. It’s going to take a good few months to get everything in from overseas. So – we have had some stressfull times. Hopefully in the New Year they will be back to full operations. My youngest step-daughter has been overseas on exchange in France for the last 7 weeks (she has just returned home) and the eldest will be home in 2 weeks time for her Christmas holiday. It’s been quiet without them, and will be so good to have all the family together over Christmas.

So – that’s most of what I’ve been up to. I’ll be back tomorrow with my 2014 Calendar and some info on my shop holiday dates!!

So nice to chat again!!
