Celebrating Winter with Visi…

To be honest, right now we’re celebrating the exciting fact that our placemats are in the latest issue of Visi magazine : ).  While they, on the other hand, are celebrating winter (and what a day to do that too). We’re just so delighted and honoured to be featured as part of their “32 reasons to celebrate Winter…No. 7 because it looks great on paper.”

I love having people over for dinner, especially in Winter. Not only do you get to cook heartwarming and tasty tasty dinners, and use all the pretty bowls and plates you’ve collected over the years, but you don’t have to leave the comfort and warmth of your own home, and you don’t need to hold back on the vino because you aren’t driving home afterwards. For those who are slightly less comfortable with the idea of hosting a dinner party, look no further than our decorative placemats, guaranteed to make your table look so beautiful, again and again, even if the food doesn’t quite work out!

Introducing my new and oh-so-fabulous aprons…

I have been so excited about these for so long as I had to wait untill I had touched down in SA before I could start developing them properly. The vintage ones in particular were something I have always wanted to do and I am super excited about the way they have all turned out! Now the plan is to shoot these all professionally so please excuse the way I have styled the pics for now but I just can’t wait that long to show you…

I have 2 different styles. The 50’s vintage inspired ones which are honestly so beautiful! They are made from a soft 100% cotton (same as my napkins) and there is alot of detailing and pleating and the finishing touches are just so pretty. They wrap generously around the waist with a full glamorous skirt with a matching pocket. You probably won’t want to get these dirty : ) The other style is a standard chef apron made from linen cotton canvas or a strong 100% cotton, these will brighten up any kitchen and are ideal for cooking and/or painting and/or anything and/or just looking pretty : )

All aprons can be made in all designs, vintage and chef styles, and the chef aprons can be made up in kiddies sizes if you want to have matching ones. Try the space rocket solar system or beep beep designs for these.
