too sweet to eat

These beautifully made sweet treats by Jason and Andie are too cute to even consider eating. When I first looked through their etsy store I really couldn't believe that everything there was edible. What stunning attention to detail and super cute ideas.

cool as ice

These ice-cube ideas would add a little frosty style to any summer party.
I especially like the chocolate ones :)

walking in a rainbow

This is amazing. I've tried to figure out where it is, but with little luck. Imagine being able to go onto the roof of your building and walk in a rainbow tunnel. What fun.

*Edit: Thanks to Pao you can now go read more about olafur eliasson's  installation 'your rainbow panorama' here

amazing pallet/succulent table


As you know I love old re-purposed pallet furniture and I love succulent plants even more. So this combination of the two is just heavenly. I wonder if I could get Jasper & George to make me one :)

By the way, check out their new stuff on their blog. Just wonderful!

best of friends

our 1st biking outing

We went for our first "long" ride to Yzerfontein over the weekend. Does this make me a biker chick yet? I suppose not as I was only the passenger. It was lots of fun, but the wind on the way back was very unpleasant. Riding in a heavy south-easter isn't for me, but we still had loads of fun.

sherlock. i'm obsessed

This has got to be my new favourite show. A modern version of the classic Sherlock Holmes books, with great actors and superbly sharp and witty writing. We've gone through season one and two in a flash. Each has only 3 episodes, but they are about 80 minutes long. I'm not always the biggest fan of British TV, but this is really one to watch.

ferrets... i still want one

Why don't we have these cute things in SA? Importing one would probably be a mission.
