These Things No.52

hello! a These Things is long overdue – and i figured since a lot of you were on holiday it was time for a recap of sorts. i also had a mini-holiday this weekend, we were treated to a night at the amazing Clouds Estate for Anton’s birthday. it’s a bit of a luxury spot in the winelands just outside my home town of Stellenbosch. if you’re ever in this part of the world, and you want to treat yo self, then this is the place. and go eat at Tokara for dinner (have the baked alaska with salmon ice-cream. do it!)

this story stayed with me all week – artist Judy Millar built her house overlooking the black sands of Anawhata beach outside Aukland. thanks to FvF for covering such interesting people, as always:

love the beautiful rings (and other jewellery) by Bario Neal:

you’ll recognise Celine from the last edition of these things – here’s a sweet feature on her & daughter Eloise by Boots & Pine:

i can’t get over these leather bags by Agnes Baddoo (modeled after her mother’s 40 year old tote):

beautiful new things at Maryam Nassir Zadeh:

a lovely identity design for catering company La Catería by Firmalt:

love the work of artist Barbara Kitallides:

these rope baskets by Zillpa are super cute:

Swedish designer Elina Dahl has an enviable apartment:

love the simplicity of this Californian wedding, including PAVLOVA for dessert (my faaaaaavourite)

ceramicist Helen Levi makes interesting pieces – available at Pour Porter:

this house is actually available for location hiring (anyone shooting a movie?) – but i’d move in today:

the new Young Frankk lookbook is beautiful, as ever – photographed by Amber Byrne Mahoney:

if you’re gluten free / dairy free / egg free / vegan – then you need to check out Fork & Beans:

this hand-drawn house printed shirt by A Part of Me is sweet:

quite like these sandals by & Other Stories:

the Frances May Summer 2013 lookbook is stellar:

like the pale cream soda hues from portuguese label Pulp:

the work of Alexandra Segreti and Kelly Rakowski, aka New Friends:

    Anawhata beach is fantastic and I love going there! It’s one of Auckland’s stunning west coast volcanic black sand beaches. Like most beaches it’s public, but the steep and windy path from the carpark keeps visitors to a minimum.
