i’m on holiday for a wee while. just over 3 weeks to be exact, boom! i won’t be on the computer much (or at all, hopefully) – but i have set up some posts to go off like clockwork around here. so, to keep going with the summer / holiday spirit…. here are some lovely old beach pics for you:

From 1959 to 1963 my father took photos of ordinary people in Cape Town.

found these amazing vintage shots by liberty littlebasil‘s dad from the beaches & pools of cape town in the memory bane pool group over on flickr. there’s lots more – go have a look.

the pioneer womana very well known blogger, ree drummond makes some seriously good looking food. probably my favourite recipe of hers is crash hot potatoes, basically the only potato dish i make these days. lots of olive oil, lots of rock salt, fresh herbs, cooked until super crispy – oh my. i think it’s probably the ideal accompaniment to summer meals – especially with some chicken kebabs from the braai & a fresh salad. go get the recipe & make it now.

La Tonkinoise à Paris
My little world is a happy recycling, a small jumble of flea market where you find the jewels fell into disuse. Each jewel that I put in point is a unique piece with a carefully considered composition. Remixing pins, buckles, buttons, watches, often of no concern to people… Each model is assembled by hand in my workshop from the 11th arrondissement in Paris

The home features an enormous patio with an elliptical opening designed to accentuate the view. The old-looking barn in the distance even features an underground tunnel that serves as an entrance into the home.
