Passing time… 


Enjoying a little quiet time on this Saturday by colouring 😊

Weekly Snap! 

  
This weekend I wanted to give myself a break. 

I found an old connect the dots book I received from an artist some years ago on assignment and decided to give it a go…. The dots connect all through the book of which the pages are connected until the last. 

It helped relax my mind and clear my thoughts. I should make this a habit 😊

Paper Snowflakes 

  
Found a tutorial on YouTube that showed viewers how to make paper snowflakes so I went on ahead and did a couple myself. 

I must say it’s very therapeutic for me and after two or three, I couldn’t stop myself from trying out some random cutouts myself. 

I don’t exactly know what I’m going to do with these; probably hang them up on a string or use them on brown paper and turn them into wrapping paper perhaps. Another diy, ha!

A little project…

 

Decided to do a little painting today so I gathered some small glass bottles for this project of mine. I had been collecting these for months and at the back of my mind wanted to reuse them some way or the other. So here’s a look at what they looked like before painting. 

   
I did just the bottom of each of the bottles and this is what they looked like while I left them out to dry. 

   
 
And there’s the final look!

Minnie

A girl like me can’t say no to a bit of surfing through Facebook jewellery pages, especially the ones that are home and hand made. I am always amazed at the creativity and uniqueness of the pieces created. Today’s post is about a page I came across earlier this week: Minnie.

Minnie is a vivacious brand that offers items ranging from clothing to accessories and lots of other fun things in between.

Every item is designed to make a bold statement and almost all designs will probably never be made again….Plus you’ll never know what’s coming next.

They try to be as sustainable and as ethical as possible by sourcing local fabrics, finding great local tailors, incorporating local crafts and sometimes, designing up-cycled goods with waste materials. Apart from the outsourcing of tailoring and fabrics, ‘Minnie’ is 99% homemade & handmade.

As of now, you can check out the available items, which are one of a kind, and make orders via their Facebook page.

Happy shopping!

Masai keepsake

Beautiful black and white keepsake

Featuring one of my most favourite and oldest keepsake boxes today. It’s not typically a box but it does hold some of my earrings in it. It’s circular shaped and has this adorable elephant figure on the lid. I should add that this was a gift by my husband (who was then boyfriend) from his trip to Africa. The colours and carved design on it represents the Masai tribe. I love tribal looking items and this is just perfect. I love the unique arty look and the fact that it stands out on my vanity.
