When I arrived home after the Indaba expo with the cutest white Silver Spoon dress, he said "Now that's different!".
Silver Spoon Clothing hails from my hometown of Port Elizabeth, and the creative duo of Stephanie and Dieter (aka the "Dude" by those who know him) are already making waves in the local fashion industry.
When I stumbled upon their stall at the Expo (wish I took a pic!) I had no intentions of buying anything. My arms were heavy already with Wonki Ware bowls, magazines and other paraphernalia. Flipping through the rails I could not resist however.
I bought this (below) dress, and every time I wear it I feel sexy and girly all at the same time (must be the cute frills on the shoulder) - but the best part is how comfy it is! As they state on their website: "We make functional pieces with character".
My kind of clothing ;)

This is the twig centre piece that I blogged about a while ago. Sorry, this is not the greatest pic....
I spent about 2 weeks making the centre piece, adding twigs from the Tokai Forest and bits of bling like pearl-like beads, big fat crystals and other gold coloured beads.
It did give us some cause for swearing on the morning of the wedding to get it in place, but I think it was all worth it!

Happy Weekend everyone!
And to everyone doing the Argus on Sunday, may your tyres never go flat and the hills be a breeze!

I've been following Skermunkil's lovely blog for a while now, so when I saw them at Design Indaba, I was in heaven! Seeing all the lovely pieces up close and personal really made me realise just how great her pieces are. Also, I think the great thing about the Indaba is it gives exhibitors the chance not only to display their goods, but to tell us a story. Inspire us. Captivate.

Lecia de Waal is a wonderfully creative lady. Her range of vinyl wall stickers are sure to make any drab space come alive!
The great thing about wall stickers is that they really are not expensive, so if you get bored of it after 6 months you won't feel bad peeling it off and replacing it with a new design.
Lecia has a great deal on at the moment: buy any tree from her website and then she'll throw in 10 butterflies and 10 cute birdies for free. Mahala. Pasella. Verniet.
Not sure when the special ends, so better you be quick and get yours now!
Find all her pretty stickers at De Waal Art.
