These Things No.40

i actually started writing this post a few days ago when i was in the grips of a nasty bout of flu, which is spreading through cape town like wildfire at the moment, but i simply could not muster enough energy to get even half way through it. consequently i spent about a week in bed or on the couch (watching many, many episodes of friends) and subsequently had to catch up on real work – which meant the blog has been on the backburner for a while. i’m sorry about that!

i did however find some time to spruce things up a bit around here… what do you think of the new design? i like that i can play with the look of the blog so much, it’s like experimenting with my hair without the emotional fallout of a bad cut.

so, after much time away, a these things is in order.

kate has busy rebranding all her personal projects – including her jewellery line. love the clay amulets!

    these are worth waiting for, always leaving me with such a rush of inspiration! when i was trying to figure out what my features were going to be, you inspired me to make a 10 things feature. i have so much fun browsing the web collecting things to share.

    i especially loved the sartorial shots, they look like they were from another era. and the danish house too! made me long back home to norway.

    I stumbled across your blog yesterday and as I was scrolling through, I noticed one of my photographs in this post (a long way from home)! To say I was flattered is an extreme understatement.

    I adore your aesthetic, this whole site is an amazing source of inspiration.
