Christmas time – nice stuff from over the sea.27. November 2012
I can’t believe it’s almost Christmas time. Time for holidays, lazy days, books, travelling, family, food, food, food and pressssents.

I think I may love framing things like a lot.23. April 2012
When I took my family’s old passports to be framed I also took these drawings that I did of my parents when I was young. These were Christmas presents that I gave them one year – a one of kind, signed original by A.Batis. Hahaha it has all the important bits, the Merry Xmas, the part about loving them, the eyes that look like bicycle spokes, because i’m such a sucker for detail and then obviously my signature, because no great piece of art is complete without one. Obviously.
I’m so happy that my mom kept them. I stole them back a while ago and I have been wanting to do something with them for long. Then I remembered this black and white photo of my parents that I took quite a few years ago at my cousin’s wedding. I have always loved this picture, so I thought that I would frame all 3 together – so it’s how my eyes saw them and how my saw hands saw them.
I love these 2 people more than anything!
New shinies.08. November 2011
Marietjie sent all these wonderful pieces to Wolves yesterday – just in time for Christmas wish lists. I got Este to try a few of them on so you can see how nicely they sit. There are some really nice ones and i’m struggling to keep my hands off them.
I have of course already claimed 2 of them. Damn it I can’t help myself, I know I don’t need anymore necklaces, but I just don’t know how to say no. When I look into their geometric shaped eyes all I can hear is “hello Angie, take me home so I can make some new friends”. I bought the 2 below, thought they made a nice combo.
Early present.01. November 2011
A friend of Este’s is coming to Joburg in December, so we just ordered ourselves early Christmas presents online. Look at my new soon-to-be Pins & Needles sweater. Ooooooooh can’t wait for this chap to get here. When it arrives, I think i’ll take it out for a double thick milkshake and a little dance in the night.
