Paper Cover Up

A quick mini garland of white paper leaves and flowers, strung together.  
A pretty cover-up for a picture hook, that's between pictures!

Paperwork for a Press Day

There's been a whole lot of paper work going on here lately, and we were delighted to provide Freshly Found Lilies for each of the guests at a very special local function this week. 
Durban [and the whole country] is buzzing with the imminent launch on Mr Price Online on Monday. 
 Judging by all the comments on the social network, the Press Day on Tuesday was an amazing function!

The installation by Kim Longhurst looked stunning and I was so glad to see how the lily boutonnieres looked with their bright neon name tags!

Batik Bag

I don't do much ethnic stuff on Freshly Found - but I was given a beautiful piece of Batik fabric a while ago.  The result - this series of bags.
I enjoy the hints of damask pattern that come through.  
Thuli from Embocraft made up the flower decorations. 
Available online here♥

Vintage Crochet Blankets

These Vintage table cloths always do so well at the market.  People buy them to use as throws or bed coverings
I am delighted to have a whole new stash of them, and this time I've listed them online as well.  
There are some fairly big ones amongst them.

On Instagram Lately...

Snippets of what's been happening recently!
We had a wonderful weekend visiting my son and his girlfriend in Johannesburg.  They took us to some great places.  I lived in Joburg from the age of almost 5 until I was well into my 30s, so I have a very soft spot for this happening place.
*We visited the amazing Neighbourgoods Market in Juta Street, where I had *Poffertjes for the first time in South Africa.  I was delighted to see the aerial paper cups and teapots display at *Tashas at Atholl Square and taste the great coffee my husband always raves about when he is there.  Arts on Main too was so inspirational and we enjoyed the *Sunday Market on Main there.

Breakfast at * Vovo Telo in Parkhurst was a real treat. Back Home - to my coffee home in Durban *Bean Green is the place!
Some friends and I walked in the * Spar Women's race.  So much fun and a very patriotic start - singing the National Anthem was very moving and made me feel like a rugby hero for a few minutes! I recently discovered that i have a * Waste Centre down the road, and around the corner from me!  Yay - That's where I bought this polka dot ribbon.
A quick weekend project - *Crochet and Button Bracelet for myself.  And then. I just loved this vintage book I was working with last week.  All the *offensive words in the over 700 page book have been tippexed out by some sweet moral champion!

And a Crocheted Ring on Her Hand She Bore...

The gorgeous rings in these pics will be for sale at the i♥market tomorrow.  
The jade and pink one is a vintage find, and all the others are designed by Vyn and finely crocheted by the ladies at Embocraft.
I am quite chuffed with the stuffed glove display!  
The fresh leaf bracelets will be making their debut too.
It is going to be a lovely warm day.  See you tomorrow!
And remember this piece of wisdom from Sonja Henie -

Jewelry takes people's minds off your wrinkles.
