shelves

this is an awesome DIY project from the brick house – it looks so cool and professional, like something you’d pay thousands of bucks to get an interior designer to do. not sure about where you can get plumbing fixtures like that in SA, i assume builder’s warehouse? errrrm…. plumb-link? either way, it’s just standard pipes that are spray painted black…. man, i’m so clueless. don’t laugh at me, plumbers.

dudes, i just bought this hand embroidered girl with a pearl earring for R50! (it’s on the left, in case you couldn’t differentiate the two – amazing, huh?) on the back it says “29th october 1975″. i can just imagine some old lady painstakingly churning out copies of the masters with her embroider-by-number sheets. sorry about the poor picture quality, i quickly snapped this with my phone – you should see the detail! oh my goodness, i think it’s the best thing i’ve ever bought.

from a trip to italy, 2003. i remember it being reported as the hottest italian summer in decades – that water was heaven.

fun in the garage

my friend amy and i decided to do a photoshoot. she had all these vintage clothes and i had my mom’s fancy digital nikon (which i didn’t know how to use). we also had a garage, a white sheet (backdrop), a standing lamp (professional lighting), curlers (that we also didn’t know how to use), crappy makeup and our wits.
