This weekend R and I are at home, and I am thrilled. It feels like for
the past few months home-days have been cut short and home weekend are
few and rare. This weekend will be different. We plan to garden and be
in the sun ( if it holds out). I am beyond excited.
I am busy working on the design of a beautiful, classic and bespoke "Dressing office". It is meant to be romantic and a little haven of refuge and inspiration, filled with beautiful clothes, magazines and happiness. These are a few images I am using to be inspired.
R took me away for a blissful 3 nights in the Bush. We flew to Nelspruit and then hired a car and after a 4 hour drive, we were surrounded by the sounds and sights of real African game. We saw Elephants and Giraffe by the dozen, birds, zebra and a sighting of a Leopard, which was truly special, since these beautiful creatures have always eluded me. I can not describe how transporting and wonderful these few days were, falling asleep to the loud sounds of crickets and sipping on hot coffee in the back of an over-lander in the dewey early mornings. After only 3 days I felt relaxed, revitalised and inspired to draw again. The pictures are worth all and more than all the words I could type. We stayed at 3 very different and special lodges (which I will do posts on later) but, for now, these are a few snapshots of our magical excursion.
How beautiful is this image- as featured on Miss Moss today! Had to post it to keep it, and is the perfect introduction to the images of my weekend away in the Timbavati that I'll post on Monday! Happy Friday.
