// home in the village



This weekend's beautiful light and my neat and tidy house inspired me to finally take some proper pictures of our new home in the beautiful little village of Obs :) We love living here! When we moved to Cape Town we heard all sorts of weird and dodgy things about Observatory, but when we found this little gem of a home, we couldn't resist it! And the village life is awesome!


I've only taken a few pictures of mainly our bedroom, the lounge and our kitchen/dining room. There's loads still to photograph, including our sweet garden and front porch with all my bunting and wedding signage :) But this will have to do for now, friends x

We're off to Mauritius and Canada/USA to shoot some weddings and for Honeymoon Part II and III so I'm not sure when I'll get a chance to blog again. But I'll definitely try post a few in-between-Sneak-Peeks of our trip and all the fun we're having! Yay!

Love!

P.S huge thanks to Dan from Saks Corner for doing a great job on fixing & re-upholstering our lovely turquoise chair! Friends, be sure to check out his shop - what a joy! x

Oh, and I thought I'd also post the two latest additions to my Salt & Pepper family. The left is probably one of my greatest finds EVER from Milnerton Market (R30!!!! I know right?!?) and the right is a present from dear friends and available from My China Ceramics.

  25. Thanks for all the lovely comments, friends. Sometimes I wonder if I'm too much in my head and hearing such love coming from all of you makes it real and so much more beautiful :) @Leila, Obs is something to get used to, but once you do, it's awesome! Funny thing is we've rpobably passed each other without knowing it :) Happy day frinds! x
