Jesse of Jezzeblog in Cape Town just printed this delicious tape and has listed it in her etsy shop! Capetonian Heather of Skinny La Minx spent the Easter weekend photographing her Vintage Cups and Mugs. I just love seeing the whole series and how she interpreted them into the design of her latest Mugs Tea Towel Francesca has also had an Orange time lately when she was rewarded for her kindness and recieved this lovely wristlet from Naughtyagapanthus in Australia .

The pencil posy is now happily at home on my coffee table and by last night had already received some comments from a visitor! I like it when decor evokes thought and feeling maybe even puzzlement and humour!

These 2 sides of the same sign are a reminder of apartheid days in South Africa and were fitted onto the side of train carriages. The applicable side was displayed as necessary!

By the way DADS is the catchy acronym for The "Durban Art Deco Society". They are affiliated to ICADS - International Coalition of Art Deco Societies.

First some lovely local lights made by Renette of Renette's Candles.
She lives in Knysna and creates these beautiful sand candles from wax and sea sand.
Secondly - there will be a whole lot of candles burning in my neighbourhood today. A mass peaceful protest is taking place as 6 men suspected of brutally assaulting a local resident and her dad last Sunday appear in our local court this morning. The protesters will carry candles and placards with POWAR [Protect our Women Against Rape]. I am heartened by the response of the community and by the courage of the victims themselves. This is a small way of standing with them.

But I really wanted to show the set off properly!
Here are some of my attempts: I still haven't worked out how to be an invisible photographer yet - but it is a lovely [actually mismatched] set!
