Seven Things

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!
