a belated wishlist

it was my birthday a month ago and i thought i would put together a list of lust-afters that i have stored up over the year.  oh i wish they were available in SA…shipping is just too expensive!

the golden snitch of rings!

these fantastic kinetic rings are the creations of kansas-based metalsmith, dukno yoon.  his da vinci-esque designs mimic the flight of birds when worn and flexed on a finger…

coyote brigadiers, forest bandits, a dowager governess & helmeted hares!

i was lucky enough to get a copy of wildwood for christmas (secreted across from the US).  i am pages from finishing it: what a wonderfully engrossing adventure, brimming with enchanting characters and rich, glorious language – as one would expect from the lead singer of the decemberists and the book’s author, colin meloy.  well-known illustrator, carson ellis, and wife to meloy, is responsible for the book’s intricate imagery…oh to be the one half of such a creative duo!

wishful thinking

i thought in the spirit of “letters to santa” and the often-regretable christmas gift shopping, i would compile a small list of my material lustings…enjoy!

1. beautiful leather lace-up shoes!   2. robot tea infuser   3. elephant scarf   4. moustache cup   5. white & navy chevron blanket   6. star wars matryoshka dolls   7. my dream bag   8. this oliver jeffers’ painting (it is my desktop background)   9. burberry strap watch

december market amazing-ness

triple treats are in store for all those finding themselves in durban this december!  the i heart market will be happening on 3, 10 & 17 december at moses mabida stadium!  so do pop in for a visit and wonderful handmade christmas cheer!

penguins for the win!

i would apologise for yet another “penguin post” (2nd one in a row) except for two reasons…

1. i will never apologise for penguins – they’re admirably dapper little creatures

2. it’s my birthday and i will post whatever i want today!

one can dream…

it is my birthday in just under a month and, in the spirit of things, i thought i would put together a wishlist of my current material lustings…
