website icons

I've done these icons in different colour ways for the different pages - Hillhouse website coming together.

Hillhouse website

I'm designing a website. This is my design for the opening page. So far so good.
Hillhouse used to be our farm shed and it is now a really cool place to come and stay. Have a look.

Yes I do love my plants

I would like to mention that some of my best and most unusual succulents come from Sharon and Neville's beautiful St Verde garden. Definitely worth a visit, they are open on the last weekend of every month.

Treasure hunting

It's such a win when nobody else wants or likes things that you like. Especially when you are at an auction.

I was so excited to get these Tretchikoff prints, which came with a lot of other less desirables,
for R20.00.

More auction specials...very comfy yellow chair and the print is Mario Bordi's Freedom of the plains.

Another chair from another auction and evil Leechie cat.

The art of ventriloquism

My father was a ventriloquist and a magician. This is one of his many puppets. He has a movable jaw, and his bright staring eyes are ever ready to assume any expression suggested by his puppet master.
What I find funny is that the ventriloquist has a single powerful factor working for him and this is that the listener wants to hear what the puppet has to say!

No holding back

Our veranda is suffering from succulent invasion.
Front door navigation is almost impossible.
There is nowhere to put the tea pot.

by hook and by crooks

I am addicted to making these squares - someone better stop me before I start crocheting toilet seat covers.
