interior with napoleon – axel fridell
sometimes i hop skip & jump between blogs and suddenly find myself at some swedish fashion site that makes me go – oh, hello. luckily chrome automatically translates foreign websites for me (thanks google). i’m still not really sure what’s going on at rodeo, but the shopping department has some nice stuff (talk about short shorts hey).

jessica of the cat’s pajamas found these vintage photos in a basket in an antique store
My favorite thing to collect is probably old photographs just because I love making up stories about all of them and getting a glimpse into the past. Plus, I think they’re the best source of inspiration when in comes to outfits. These photos in particular are especially special because they’re all from the same couple of people. It looks like it was a family and their friends and other family members and the photos span throughout 1936-1938.
just some rabbits in egg boats to wish you a happy easter (and long weekend if you’re lucky)
Una van der Spuy is 98 years old and she just published another book about gardening – her own garden in fact, at Old Nectar in Stellenbosch. one of the most beautiful gardens in the country, and the only private garden to be declared a national monument. still working in your garden at 98, let alone writing a book about it, is just incredible – i would love to meet her & see her amazing garden one day. the book is Old Nectar: a garden for all seasons
