Eventually, I’m sure I’ll get back into a routine. So again, I’m sorry for the lack of posts, but I’m going to try change that sooooon.

GIVEAWAY: It’s Christmas Bonanza tiiiiimmmme on Lucky Pony #LuckyBonanza

December 5, 2013

1-gift

So it is nearly Christmas time, it’s nearly time for all of us (hopefully most of us) to go on holiday and forget about all work related responsibilities and just eat as much food as humanly possible. Well, this is at least what I plan on doing in the the next couple of weeks, for a couple of weeks.

But before I stock up on elasticated waist pants for the holidays, I thought I would host one final bonanza of a giveaway on my blog just to say thanks to all the awesome support that you have shown this Lucky Pony over the years AND to showcase some of my most favourite favourite LOCAL designers, whose stuff I think is beyond awesome and would all be very welcome in my present stash.

I think I may love framing things like a lot.

April 23, 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.

COOL STUFF, FASHION, handmade stuff, jewellery, products, things i want, wolves

New shinies.

November 8, 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.
