Angels, Earrings and A Pot

15 May

I bought some beautiful items while in KwaZulu Natal. I always try to find an Angel for our Christmas tree when we are on holiday and found two pretty beaded ones on a market run by a collective so each maker was selling her own creations.

I found earrings in each of the museums we visited, again, each was labelled with the maker’s name though the name labels were taken off so that each maker was properly rewarded for their own work.

Earrings from three different places and makers – The outside ones were from the Talana Museum shop and the middle pair were from the Rorke’s drift museum shop.

After watching the women at work weaving, we bought two of these pretty little pots  – one for us and one for our lovely neighbour who has kindly watched over our place and kept our house plants alive.

    While the earrings would clash with practically all of my wardrobe the basket weave pot is smashing.
