Check out my post on 2modern on Mud Studio. I saw their work at Anthropologie last week, and its lovely.

The Silly Season

Gotta love it!

Enjoy more great cards at Asher House. For my American friends, some of their collection is available at Anthropologie. And here's a little more about gumboot dancing.

Happy Christmas!

As I was saying...

So, what's my favourite chair?

But if I was a wee one, I think it would be the rocking horse I showed over at 2modern last Friday.


Thanks to the folks at Dwell, I discovered the work of Joom... but they don't only have great product design, but other fabulous design.

Graphic design


and I LOVE the icons from the website

Joom has just so much good work. I wonder if they need a hand... let me know if you do! I'll be there, like a bear!

Check out my post on 2modern today... and Joom's lovely product design. But next week you'll see more of them here, because they have just as exciting graphic design, illustration and more that I want to share with you.

For now, this is a little taste of their website. See the bokkies up top? They spring their way through whatever page you're on. So fun!

One more time...

head on over to 2modern for my weekly post... tomorrow I present my portfolio, so after a couple days' break, I hope to be back in the swing of posting a few times a week from next week. Thanks for your patience while I got this done :)

Designers Guide

Head on over to Design*Sponge for Gary of Spray Glue's take on new up-and-coming designers from South Africa. Nicely done!

He features some of my fave artists/designers, like Heather Moore and Heath Nash, as well as some newbies for me.

Watch my Friday post for more info on Heath Nash's fabulous work.

After the Storm

This is from my front window after yesterday's snowfall, at sunset. Please forgive the blurriness, I don't have my tripod with me.

Storms a-brewing!

After getting a few inches of snow last night, the first of the season, I found this gorgeous shot of an African storm, on the Empire Collective. Wow.

I do miss the frequent thunderstorms in Joburg.

One more thing!

...and while I'm here, check out Jesse's print! Remember my last post? It's now on fabric. Lovely!

Ex-South African? Not me!

So I was taking a moment to recharge between projects tonight, and came across my name on the Elle Deco blog!

Woah! What a great surprise! And thank you for the kind words, Heather. And, as much as I enjoy living in Boston, I certainly am South African through and through. I really think the good folks at home are up to date on their SA design (I envy your access to getting out and seeing things) and really hope that my stint on 2modern will introduce my American friends to the wonders of SA design. My apologies for the few-and-far-between posts these days, but classes end in two weeks. Can't wait! Then we'll be back to business!

Now, head on over to the Elle Decor blog to sign up on the petition to save the Werdmuller Centre. It would be a pity if it disappeared. More info on the blog.
