The Postman rings twice

Freshly Found's postcard

The ever inspiring Denise was another local blogger who took part in the swap. I love the idea of a 'swatch' postcard.

Have stamp - Will travel

I finally came up with some garden humour for my part in the postcard swap and it's winging it's way accross Cape Town as we speak.

Look What I Got

My own beautiful postcard print by Jesse arrived yesterday! Thank you.

Still Thinking...

In my searches I came across this wonderfully witty postcard from a series of four postcards created by Eve Duhamel for the Frontroom creative space and gallery in Cambridge, UK.

Need I say more?

Postcard Swap

 Jesse's postcards being rolled out - I can't wait to get my grubby little hands on mine.

One of my favourite creative bloggers Jesse is doing a postcard swap and I've joined in the frenzy. Since then I've been racking my brain for a suitably brilliant idea - Everything Jesse does looks beautiful (no pressure ofcourse).

I Have New Neighbours

It's not everyday you see peahens strutting their stuff in suburbia! Lucky me, these four ladies and an elusive gentleman drop in on our little corner everyday.

Can Too!

School projects certainly aren't what they used to be. They are waayy cooler!

This weekend my daughter had to build a robot, but dad was away - so mother & daughter set to work. (I feel hopelessly inadequate compared to "the man who can").

Plan A:
She originally wanted to build out of wood - but my carpentry skills are limited.

Plan B:
Check out the recycling bag.

This is what she came out with:
  • 2 x bottle tops
  • 2 x cooldrink cans
  • 2 x toothpaste boxes
  • 2 x cigarette boxes
Who knew my buying habits were symmetrical.
I found an old glue gun and rummaging in the left over paint box delivered some spray-paint.

Then I followed detailed instructions;
stick these together - here, no here; he must be red, but his shoes must be black; he needs an aerial...a smile...and oh a name...can you cut these out?

My only legacy - the fingers and the smile (a bit like in my daughter)

Ssh...Can You Hear It...

We just spent a lovely weekend away from city white noise.

In Namakwaland sound really comes to life.

Laughter the only familiar interruption.
