Come and Live

We visited Kevin Parry's Exhibition - Come and Live

at Fat Tuesday yesterday. 
Delightful and thought provoking, it explores the relationship between God and Man.
A must see for Durbanites! It's on until the 7th May.

Up in the Air

This weekend I went along with DH to the Light Flight Airfield at Cato Ridge. DH is learning to fly again, and so I took the opportunity to take some pics. 

Pre-flight prep and the hangar door:
 The picuresque barn-cum-flight centre
DH's plane flying overhead:
 
Wasn't sure if I got him in the pic or not, but when we got home, we found him amongst the pine leaves! ... Can you?

It's Easter

It's Easter - and by the looks of the leaves on my driveway, it's almost autumn too!
We are enjoying a quiet weekend at home! 
We'll be celebrating a special Easter service at CityHill Church Hillcrest on Sunday morning [actually we're there most Sun mornings] 
 We also have plans to see some family too. Have a lovely weekend!

Truly White

I just loved this chandelier at a recent wedding we went to at the contemporary Netherwood wedding venue in the Midlands.
It is a stunning place and was a great backdrop to the gorgeous, happy, all-white wedding we attended.
Have a look at photographer Jacki Bruniquel's blog for more glimpses of this wet weather and wonderful day!

Shibori

If you follow me on Pinterest, you will realise that I am quite interested in Shibori - the Japanese way of dyeing cloth. 
This past weekend I tried some of the techniques out on a few vintage cloths and new dishtowels.  It was a good learning experience and I am looking forward to improving my skills the next time round.

Paper Tube Hearts

I love working with paper - and this is my latest project! 
 Tubes of vintage book paper connected into a heart shape!
And I'm loving the large wooden chopping board I sourced at the SPCA last week. I scurbbed it clean, and now it makes a goog background for pics!

Puzzle Hearts

We were so happy to have some new products at the market this week, and soon to be available online too!
Claire Norden produced some gorgeous puzzle hearts for Freshly Found.  I have claimed the white one for myself.
Claire colour co-ordinates the pieces before gluing them together. You can choose to hang the heart with either the coloured side or with neutral grey backing uppermost!

Rob Ryan's Cards

I have just written out this card for a wedding we are going to tomorrow.  I am so excited that Rob Ryan cards are available in South Africa, courtesy of Roger la Borde.  
Quite resonably priced too! I have always admired Rob's work!
I have bought some from Fat Tuesday and from Exclusive Books.
