This beautiful treasury was created by Pegg of fiveforty. Pegg not only weaves her magic when creating her beautiful treasuries but also in her gorgeous woven rugs made out of recycled textiles and fabulous, one of a kind jewellery.
Thanks so much!

Returning Customers, if you have a current 10% Gift Certificate from a previous purchase you may use it. I will combine the two offers together for a total savings of 20%.
We woke up to a temperature of about 28 degrees (celcius). Bright sunshine, almost cloudless sky and it was getting hotter by the hour. By the peak of the afternoon it reached 33 or 34 degrees.
These round pits in this counter would actually hold food that would be bought by the villagers. Similar in a way to the fast food of our time.

When I was younger I thought they were called 'Morning' Doves, made perfect sense I often saw them in the morning but when I later learned it was 'Mourning' I always had a strange appreciation for them. Their sombre cooing sound always made me feel a bit sad for them and their propensity for just sitting on the ground always made me a bit worried for their safety.
You wonder if these birds are just so naive that they think they are safe there, confident that they could fly away if danger arose or just hopeful of the world and it's surroundings around them - a trust in the world that they will be safe. Be safe little bird.

Here are a few of my new designs.
Freshly squeezed 'Fuschia Lemonade'.
'Fresh' , gorgeous green and turquoise glass with antiqued copper.
'Paprika Waters', hot and spicy paprika red is a beautiful complement to the cool water colours of aqua and green.

The smell of warm bread wafting through the street...
...such care and pride taken in the making and presentation of food. This food was meant to be enjoyed, each mouthful tasted, digested. It is the complete opposite to our hurried, grab what you can fast food culture. Few cafe's even provide take out coffee cups. Sit down, enjoy and have a conversation. What a concept!
...it's easy to stop and smell the roses when you're on holidays and especially when it's made of vanilla bean, coffee and pistachio flavoured ice creams...but it does make you realize that somehow our fast and 'I'm so busy' lifestyle is missing something...and I'm not speaking of fancy french pastries...there's just something you can't get while racing through the drive through line of Tim Horton's.
