Picnic crasher

This past weekend was off to a very drammatic start! I had a number of rush orders and a large corporate order that needed to be finished ASAP - an awkward trip in my studio resulted in me bumping a long thin piece of rolled silver into my bench torch gas pipes - bursting them. 

My wonderful and very nifty husband to the rescue, and a day later I was operational again -- *phew!*

In an effort to relax and enjoy the weekend after a lot of hard work and frustrating time trying to fix my torch, we decided to have a picnic in a nearby nature reserve, -- and this little bugger decided to join us!

He clearly loves carrots!

Visit to Babylonstoren

There so many hidden gems in the Western Cape..
Recently I visited Babylonstoren, an old Cape Dutch farm that lies in the Drakenstein Valley between Franschoek and Paarl.

Babylonstoren has a hotel, spar, beautiful gardens, a farm shop and a wonderful restaurant.

We walked through beautiful gardens, met some resident ducks and chickens, and came accross the restaurant, great food and great surroundings.

In the farm stall. Freshly bakes breads, speciality jams etc

Lunch! A gourmet boerewors roll.

I just MUST have..

For those of you who may have noticed. I am kind of crazy about ceramics...

My mug cupboard is overflowing with beautiful handmade pieces from South African ceramic artists country wide. I just cant stop.

I recently found Cabo Collective.. and I cant wait to own some of their pieces.

Would'nt their stuff make Great Christmas or even Wedding gifts...??

Amazing. Visit them here : Cabo Collective Website

Buns !

I just love a messy bun... sometimes my days are too busy to spend time on my hair, a quick brush,  a swift stretchof an elastic band - & Im good to go !

The trick to a great bun... is to not try too hard - the beauty of a great bun is how effortless it looks, also use thin hair pins to hold up certain parts if you like height at the top of your head when wearing a bun ♥
