New space

Hey there,

Love Art is moving!!! I'm so excited ... have a new space to decorate!!! Have until Sunday 28th Feb to move everything! Got this coming week to get the new space ready!

This has got to be the quaintest little cottage in Riebeek kasteel.


Needs a bit of TLC but nothing major!  Fresh coat of paint & a good clean should do the trick!

This is an interior layout of the cottage and what the rooms look like - totally empty!  Blank canvas to start from!  The kiln is going in the shed out back and unfortunately for me it doesn't fit through the doorway but luckily have a brother who is a brilliant builder, carpenter etc guy so he will be removing the frame and replace it once the kiln is in!  No plan on moving it ever!


The idea is to keep it plain and simple.  Will leave the wooden floor in the painting studio but paint the gallery and shop floor white gloss!  The walls in the gallery painted a charcoal kinda colour & everywhere else white with  a feature wall in the shop painted with black board paint.  The ceramic studio is totally "iffy"!  

Do you have any ideas for me?  Would love to see your workspace! be continued


♥ & Love Art

... hope your last weekend was fabulous & this one even better! Went to a fund raiser Valentine's masked ball last Friday night and we had a fabulous evening!  Saturday was feet up and watching movies kinda day! 

Amazing how chatting to people or networking as my friend calls it, can lead to someone knowing someone that can help you out!  Hopefully I will have fabulous news on Monday about moving Love Art to the quaintist little cottage in our village and the best part is it won't cost a fortune!  Its appears that I'm a "well known" in the Valley!  Had a few "So you Li"!  Makes you feel really special!

It's raining here at the mo which is a blessing!  Garden needs loads of water!  but definitely not a fan of the humidity factor that's come along with it!  Did this painting 2 years ago and the green colour reminds me of colour  grass goes when you have a mixture of rain, sunshine and rainbow. It's titled "A Moment".

Have a fabulous day!

Hey there!  Just get into to the groove of been a regular blogger & viola LIFE happens!  My dad (he is 73) was in hospital in a small town called Klerksdorp which is a 14 hour drive from our home!  He had a growth removed from his colon which wasn't that bad but he didnt sleep & with no sleep his body didnt heal! 10 days later still in ICU he was put on a ventilator & a sleep. induced coma!  We got told of the situation Friday morning (28th Jan) & after a few telephone calls to family etc was told that it would be a good idea for us to visit!  All 3 kids arrive at the hospital Sat morning for visiting hour - only two family members at a time are allowed in - my 2 brothers went in then my husband & I then stepmom & aunt etc!  Amazing how frail life actually is!  Anyhoo!  Dad is recovering, colon is working, he is still in ICU but off the ventilator and has started eating solids!  Yipee!

Didn't think one would get "jet lagged" from driving!  I had plans to start giving ceramic classes Tuesday 2nd, which I postponed.  Was not ready!  Had an eventful week!  I've been having hassles trying to organize the electricity at the space I rent but not much joy there!  Then a friend called to say she was moving & would I be interested in renting the place!  Of course - it's this quaint little cottage next door to one of my favourite places in our little village Cafe Felix, has ample parking, cute little garden, pay-as-you-go electricity, hot water & a roof that doesn't leak!

Now I have to hold thumb that I don't need to apply for business rights to operate from the cottage that's actually zoned residential!  The cost is way to much & that would mean not moving & having to put up with a roof that leaks, no hot water & an electricity bill from hell!  

Will keep smiling & holding thumb! How can you not have a smile on your face with something as cute as this ...

Keep smiling!
