So here goes...
In the '70's we would have called this item "kitch". A shop owner in Shinyanga, Tanzania gave me this; today it's on show next to my stove in my South African home
On the other side of the stove, I have a butcher's block. A rattan basket on the shelf below contains the cooking utensils which are used regularly
On top of the butcher's block is a spoon rest. Rina made this item while she still lived in Tanzania and we all utilized (!) the same pottery studio (Sorry Margaret, I just couldn't resist posting this one as well!)
In 2002, our back entrance was here. I had an extension built on which is our entertainment area today
This is now the entrance to our home
The weather (a summer storm) built up this afternoon as I loaded this post
This young African Pied Wagtail was in search of a last meal before it sought refuge in the bushes below
Rina and I bought winter clothes together while on holiday in May. She has worn, washed, worn, washed (you get the picture) hers. Mine is still in the cupboard with the ticket on!
These knitted tops are two of five items
which I didn't get around to wearing this winter. Oh well!
Our five-month-old Labrador pup, Skabenga loves to lie beside the stairs (featured above). Here I captured part of my dog: his sleepy head
And his curled up toes!
