i’m thinking about christmas already. sigh. my family has instituted a one gift per person R100 limit (to combat the “meltdown“). i told them R100 is almost impossible, so i’m shooting for under 200 bucks. anything handmade is great to me, and anything i can order online is even better. if i can walk to a shop – wonderful, but that kind of limits you geographically & since i’m out in “the sticks” (as some might say) i welcome e-commerce with open arms (i’m also lazy). PLUS i’d also like to inject some christmas cheer into the south african postal service (i have faith!) – herewith my south african friendly online shopping gift guide
i love these kitchen cupboards – so simple! i know people get kind of stressed out about redoing their kitchens, then they end up spending lots of cash on fake wood and fake granite tops etc etc – but look how great this solution is. i reckon probably inexpensive in comparison, too. if you ever get tired of that scandanavian wood vibe, just paint them. boom. via decor8

this is pretty cool (in theory), it’s just too bad that the owners have the worst taste in the world (how’s that lounge, hey?) they could have done so much with it! they converted the church, but then basically made it look like a church with a lounge. plus there’s the whole living in a graveyard thing.
