Handmade Love image I had so much fun doing this! It started as the frame from a canvas that was removed to be shipped! The Love sign was a gift from my daughter, Lia, the stick came from my garden which I painted and the hearts I made with plaster of Paris put into a heart shaped ice tray and before the plaster dried I took string and embedded it into the hearts so that I could string it up! The small metal heart with "chicken" wire I bought from somewhere and its attached to the wall and "voila" a work of art!

"Funky" little kitchen

Love Art studio kitchen This is my "funky" little kitchen! The aprons where made by my mother-in-law, Charmaine and I hand painted the Love Art logo onto calico which also serves as a pocket for cigarettes (bad, bad bad), cell phone etc...

Love Art Shop

Love Art shop displayand this is Love Art "shop"! The shelving was made by my darling brother. Rather innovative I thought, its supawood with holes drilled front and back and rope strung through and knotted underneath each shelf. I painted the shelves with blackboard paint so that I can write the prices down on them which saves on paper, printing costs etc.

A fabulous view

View from our balcony This has to be the best part of our home! This was added to our home in December! Can't believe we waited 4 years to do this! It gets so hot here in summer, up to 40 degrees on average especially now! You can just see the mountains in the background. Will have to post some photos of the beautiful view!

A few treasures

Silver Heart
White metal cut-out heart
Porcelain Jacket in birdcage All the goodies in my dining room area. The porcelain jacket I made about 16 years ago! Working towards getting back into doing ceramics again.

The Kitchen

My Kitchen This is a view from the kitchen to the dining room and lounge. The painting was done by my friend Erika who lives across the road! The cupboard was bought from my favourite shop in our village called The Living Room but most of us call it "the Bali shop"

Happy "cooking"

and this is a view of my kitchen from the dining room. The table is actually a workbench that was first used as a changing table for my now 4 year old. It's her favourite spot to have breakfast. The barstool closest is her spot and no one else is allowed to sit there!

Lets EAT!

This is my dining room. The lily painting I did last year - which is not an original Li idea! The furniture was from Coricraft.

You're Welcome

My entrance hall. The statue I made years ago! The reflection in the mirror is probably the 2nd lily painting that I did.

Valentines Day

Using my hubby's laptop to add this post as my computer decided that it had had enough and has taken time out! Hopefully not for too long! Just getting the hang of blogging and this happens!
Well, I had the most divine evening out for Valentine's! Totally surprised! Was taken to Bartholomeus Klip Farmhouse! Absolutely stunning! Had no idea how beautiful and green it is! Live around the corner and its rather dry this time of year! Did take a few pics but unfortunately cannot download to hubby's laptop! Will have to wait until I get me PC back!

♥ + ♥ + ♥

Yip I have an obsession for HEARTS ... I have a heart hanging on practically every door in my home! All shapes, sizes, textures & colours. I even have vanilla smelling heart soaps and just for an added bonus heart shape cookie cutters, muffin pans and cake pans!
