Rather late than never….sorry. Here is the gorgeous LOVE mag by Jen Ramos and friends.
Skilled textile workers get creative for their village. Not only do they work in textiles but they sew the most beautiful linen of which Woolworths offer in their stores and make african flavored bags, dolls and dresses to say the least. These women have come together to put their skills to work and have in turn created a business that sells products to boutiques and large retailers. This is an achievement and make me excited to see talented people working together and excelling in what they love doing.

Happy Christmas shopping!!
Karen is having another open day! The last one was a great hit and Karen ended up extending the days. Please be sure to pop in for some amazing gift shopping…see you there.
It is approaching us all, we cannot escape it I’m afraid.
Christmas is arriving and I can even start to hear Boney M in my head …hahaha
Anyway…. I found some lovely goodies on Oh Leander.
I am delighted to share with you about Maiden Name. It’s a local South African brand and online shop that offers handmade and hand painted products. They offer a category for your home and a category for you. It’s all so personal and I’m totally in love with their products. A lot of wood items are seen around the net and shops. Also the love for triangles. Maiden Name offers uniquely and handcrafted good that will most definitely add character and a fresh touch to your style or home. They are also EXTREMELY well priced. It’s not often you get such good products at such competitive prices. I’m getting my Christmas list in order as I know shopping with a new-born, might not as easy as with just J and myself this year.
Here are their awesome products…

Alright, I know its only October. I can’t actually believe there are Christmas decorations up already?? Time is moving so fast.
I found these pictures that I had saved a while back (so much so I can’t recall where I got them from) but thought they were pretty creative ideas on decorating. Enjoy x
Happy Tuesday everyone. Hope you had a great long weekend in SA? It has taken me a long time to get my bedroom into an environment that suits me both day and night as well as complement my husband’s style or preference. A place we can rest and find comfort in after a busy day. These days we have our books and papers in there as we have hauled it out the spare room and made room for our new arrival. You can imagine I am eager to get that room sorted and organised, so I can escape the world and find total rest. If you are anything like me you will understand my next sentence. I cannot relax if my house is not clean and organised. It is as if my head space gets cluttered if the place I am residing in is also cluttered. I’m sure most of you can identify with that?
So after reading about bedroom styling and after filtering through my own revelations, I have come to these few points that are going to help me create a room I will enjoy relaxing in.
1- There are no rules ! It is YOUR space. There are only tips and suggestions but it is up to you on what makes you happy.
2- Ensure you have dim lighting as well as good bright lighting for when you get dressed.
3- De clutter your bedside table ensuring an area you can lay you head beside and not feel you need to sort out books or paper work.
4- Have a good support of pillows or a good headboard.
5- Find lighting beside your bed that is not too bright and is not an energy saver bulb, as reading under that light is not good for your eyes. Use a normal 40W/60w round bulb, warm light shade to ease your eyes.
6- Decor/ accessorize with things you love and that comfort you. Don’t over decorated. Be surrounded by the things that bring you peace and happiness instead of dead, dull decor accessories that mean nothing to you.
7- Natural light is always welcome. Create a way that allows the sun to charm your bedroom.
Below are various ideas of bedroom spaces to suit all styles. You can do so much with your bedroom, have fun with it. Photos via Skona Hem.
The amazing Daniella Germain just makes me smile from ear to ear. She recently posted about her illustrations that had made its way onto some designer scarves.
You might remember the post about Floribunda and La Cocina where we shared about Daniella’s stationary and ceramic range? Well, she has out done it again with her sketchy bird placed beautifully on Elk scarves.
So soft and beautiful!
