On Saturday I flew with Desmond and the Tutus to Cape Town where they were playing at the Rocking The Daisies Festival. The show was awesome and so was the venue. Wow. It was so beautiful, there was green grass and mountains and colourful flags. It made Oppie look like Hilbrow on a Saturday afternoon just before the sweetie man comes to visit. What? I don’t know. All i’m saying is it was super cool and my boys played a damn good show.
This was on Saturday night, we also spent the whole of Sunday in Cape Town. We went to the Milnerton Market in the morning, where I found 2 amazing things, but I must say I do remember Milnerton being a lot radder. Now there just seems to be a lot more really tanned awkward looking people selling toilet seats and their kid’s ‘happy meal’ toys, it’s quite something, but I got this locket and Lucia ware bowl for R50 each, so i’m happy-happy.
This bird locket has L&C stamp on the back and then 3 other little symbols in a row, I can make one out properly, it’s an anchor, can’t really see the others. Well anyway, I tried too look these markings up and I came across this ladies site. Her stuff is amazing, loads of vintage finds. Go have a look and try not to cry in your pants. I found similar bird lockets on her site with the same markings. It looks like it comes from the Victorian era. If anyone can help me with any more information I would really really appreciate it.
And here is my new Lucia ware bowl. Oooh so so pretty and bright.
