You know the deal by now - seven things I have seen, done or loved lately - snapped with Instagram (cupcakecouture_).
1 > Thrifting: I went on the hunt late last week for a few things and found a knitting pattern magazine for my friend - Giselle. She recently had a baby and can knit and shares my love for all things vintage. The little magazine is so cute - can't wait to give it to her. I also found some embroidery and a little elephant brooch - using these for making more Keepsake pieces.
2 > A very small bokkie: Rhenda from iKhaya was sweet enough to give me this little bokkie. It's the small things that make me happy!
3 > More from iKhaya: Amazing pieces in their Windermere Road shop!
4 > Packing & Wrapping: I love prepping orders to post off to customers! I might never meet them, but I love to wrap up the items and write a note so that they know they matter to me!
5 > Kloof SPCA: There is a Scrabble installation in one of the trees! It was so wonderful to see the warm Winter sun shining putting a spotlight on it.
6 > Little Bear: My friend Genevieve made a finger puppet from another friend Olivia Villet's illustrations! How clever and cute!
7 > Kitty: Spotted this sweet chap at the SPCA and he came to keep me company! How adorable! I am so desperate for a pet of my own - insert weepy face! We are not allowed pets in our block and I am one of those rule follower types so feeling a bit hard done by!
