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!

rifle paperp company lookbook 2013

Hello everyone!! Wow what a week it’s been – the Markgoed met Witgoed market began (stunning and so busy!!!!) and it’s Friday already!!

Those of you who have gotten to know me through this blog might have noticed my new stationery crush (as evidenced in my shopping in Los Angeles!) – Rifle Paper Company!! This is an American stationery brand designed by the super-talented Anna Bond. I absolutely LOVE her floral artwork, as well as her more quirky ranges (have a peek at the new iphone cover for cat lovers here…..). Well – she recently collaborated with Brooklyn based floral designer Amy Merrick to create an absolutely gorgeous lookbook of her current range. All I can say is WOW!! Such a clever way of combining beautiful artwork, gorgeous fresh flowers and papercraft.

I wish I could have been a fly on the wall at this shoot!!

(For those of you who want to get your grubby little paws on some of this stationery gold, I have seen a few of her products at In Good Company and Marigold here in Cape Town!!!!).

Have a great weekend everyone!!

Markgoed met Witgoed

It’s a new month and we are getting ominously close to the silly season!! I can’t believe how fast this year has passed – and how much has happened in that time…….

Well – it’s time for all the gorgeous end of year markets to begin! I am not going as “big” as I did last year, but am participating in 3 smaller (but no less wonderful) markets. The first one is next week!! The gorgeous gals that put together MARKGOED in Somerset West have decided on a theme of WITGOED (white things) this year.  Think faded furniture, white paintings, white clothes, bleached wood, cushions, white porcelain, rough and antique linen, Christmas decorations  – all in shades of white (and some splatterings of colour too). I can’t wait to see how beautifully it is all going to be put together. Sonette and Jean create a space in Sonette’s home that resembles how Kamersvol Geskenke used to be way back in the beginning – warm, cosy and welcoming. (see my pictures from last year’s event here).
MarkGoed met Witgoed Invitation

I have created some special goodies especially for this market – here’s a little sneak peek!!


Please come and join us if you can. The market runs from next Wednesday the 9th through until Saturday the 12th. There is also yummy tea and cake available so bring your girlfriends and make an outing of it!!

Wishing you all a great (finally its Spring) October!!

i love urbanic paper boutique

Hello!! I hope all of my South African readers had a lovely Heritage Day yesterday – and of course a lekker braai!! Thankfully we are enjoying some gorgeous sunshine in the Cape (for a change) and so it was a lovely day yesterday!!

I still have some wonderful things to share with you from our recent trip to Los Angeles! (Who knew it would take me THIS long to share everything with you all!!). Today is all about Urbanic Paper Boutique in Venice Beach. I have been following Parcel Post (Urbanic’s blog) for a long while now, and I also follow Audrey Woollen (the owner of Urbanic) on Instagram. Both of these are a constant source of inspiration for me.

What a stunning shop!!! Audrey has put together a stylish array of all the most beautiful stationery brands. A theme running through the shop was “travel” with travel inspired calendars, art, journals and other what-nots. Also – a party theme with beautiful paper cups, wooden cutlery and number “sparklers”.

Brands that stood out for me were Rifle Paper Co (again!), Moglea and Smock (wrapping paper and gorgeous boxes) – just to name a few.

Something that I found so impressive was the way in which the shop was styled – each area had a “story” and there was no clutter. Even the washi tape was scattered around the shop, fitting in with each theme, and not just piled in a basket or bowl to rummage through. Different brands were all mixed up through the shop, with the end result being so coherent and conducive to an enjoyable shopping experience. This is very much like Parcel Post where Audrey’s posts generally revolve around a “theme”. Such a lovely way of styling your shop!!

Did I buy anything – of course!!!!! And my man waited patiently in the car, and never rolled his eyes when I eventually got into the car carrying 2 bags. Gotta love him!!!

My only disappointment – Audrey was not in the day I was there!! I would have loved to have met her. Maybe one day I will have to pop in again and say hi!!
