always land on their feet…

i am not normally a lolcatz or “cute kitteh” photo person but i have collected these images of cats at the foot of photographers, which i find just so wonderful…way better than goofy felines with bad spelling 😉

i made you a mixed tape…

by their own admission paper jet is a “…collaboration between two fine jo’burg graphic designers, who by night push their desktop printer to its limits to create quality hand made illustrated goodies”   they have wonderful “love mixes” cd’s for sale at wolves cafe, like this one…

starling & hero

my wishlist has just welcomed a happy addition! a gorgeous one-of-a-kind “upcycle” from starling & hero bicycle company.  this fantastic little south african company finds old, neglected bicycles in 2nd stores, fleamarkets, garages and gives them shiny new coats, shoes & names!

market love

whimsy will once again be enjoying the crafty vibes at the i heart market this saturday, 2 april.  hope to see some of you there!

meet leroy…

i hope to be showcasing the very first whimsy limited edition sculptures by the end of the year.  so i have been having a look at various options and styles for mould-making ideas.  in my search, i stumbled upon leroy c by the guys at invisible creature.  he is black-laquer dapper with a stately grin!

i thought these cut-out, paper leaves looked remarkably cheerful…bask in their polychromatic pep!
