Into the blue…

Every month Glamour has a page in their magazine called Shop Z.A. where they feature a few of their favourite local products. I love that they have this page where they take the time to find and showcase beautiful South African products for their readers. Handmade By Me products have been featured a few times, and this month we have not 1 but 2 products which have been featured. Yay thanks Glamour for always thinking of us! Below you can find our Blue Origami Birds lampshade and our Delft Plate Placemats alongside a whole array of beautiful blue products.

Yay we are delighted to see our Deco Birds in daytime green tea towel featured in the shop z.a. section in this month’s issue of Glamour magazine! We have just been away this weekend, and while driving back into Cape Town I was amazed at all the beautiful colours of spring popping up all over the place, it really is such a beautiful time of the year!

errr’body’s going surfing…

One of our lovely stockists on the Gold Coast of Australia, I Just Love That Fabric, sent me these photos last week of what one of their customers did with my Pink Flamingo fabric. They made a SURF BOARD!!!! How unbelievably cool is this? Don’t you just want to learn how to surf immediately so you can have one? Or make space on your wall so you can just look at it?? Ha ha, as you can probably tell, we are very excited about this!!

We are also super excited about our Cape Town cushion being featured as part of their monochrome inspired shop ZA section in this month’s Glamour magazine : )

You can buy it here.
