I’m Kris and I like drawing, embroidery and taking pictures. I particularly enjoy souvenirs from the seaside, going for afternoon tea, trips to ikea and pandas.

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.
