Have a super fabulous week!
Yippee! Latest edition ELLE collected from my post box today! So much yummy stuff & these are a few of my favourites. Love the titles!
Titled "WISHLIST" Bring a street beat into your home with urban-inspired fabrics! From left to right "Urban Creep" , "Jump the Fence", "Sprayground" - Fabrics from LIV, Home Fabrics, Nucleus of Kraft, Fabric Nation (email F.Nation@gmail.com), The Silk & Cotton Co, Hertex Fabrics.
The caption at the bottom reads "SOMETIMES UNCOVERING BEAUTY IS JUST A MATTER OF CHANGING YOUR PERSPECTIVE." Gotta love Weylandts
Home Cape Town titled "Garage Party". A garage may seem an uninspiring space to most but this spot is testament to the fact that with a little clever thinking, it can form a utility canvas for some serious street-savvy styling.
Home Pretoria titled "Concrete Dream". "This house is all about basic form, simple spaces and clean lines. It's a conceptually driven collection of walls closed up with planes of timber and glass."
We sure do have some really stunning & inspiring homes & spaces in SA. Thanks ELLE for sharing!
Yummy! Not the healthiest of breakfasts but definitely the yummiest! Not sure if there is a English name for a "koeksister". You would pronounce "koek" the same as the word "look" just replace the "l" with "k" & then add "sister" to the end! Got this definition from Wikipedia, there is a recipe too!
A koeksister or koesister comes from the Dutch word koekje, the diminutive of koek meaning "cake". It is a South African syrup-coated doughnut in a twisted or braided shape (like a plait). It is prepared by deep-frying dough in oil, then dipping the fried dough into cold sugar syrup. Best eaten cold, koeksisters are very sticky and sweet and taste like honey.
There is a little shop down the road called "Aitsa" (a Afrikaans word that does not really mean anything in itself its more a word of exclamation of surpise & praise put together) which sells the most yummiest cakes, gifts, handmade goodies etc. & "little" packets of yummy koeksisters!
My darling friend & fellow artist Sol Smook has done this beautiful painting (& more) for the ANI-MAL exhibition opening Tuesday 2 June in Cape Town & I can't wait to go! Thought I would give you all a little taste! Have pics of the other paintings but will show after the opening!
