Late.Late.Late.

Readers, this post is RIDICULOUSLY overdue! I am sorry. You know when you mean to take time out to do something but you never get a chance.. then so much time passes that the pressure to do that thing grows and grows till you just can't face it. Uh huh. So, here's a simple quote that sums up my life over the last month. Does anyone have a job of awesome-ness for me? Anywho, I vow to make time to blog. It makes me happy damnit! I hope the year has started well for you all!

Over and out*

What I feel like doing today...

Hi all,

I know its been a while since I've done a post. All I can say is... Clients. Fellow designers, do you feel me!? Anywho, this is my cat Phoebe. Yes, HIS name is Phoebe. A seemingly common problem in the Burr household. We can't tell what sex cats are as babies. And so, poor lil Phoebe was a little diva from the start. This pose is pretty standard. And after the week I've had (and it's only Wednesday..give me strength) I want to be in this postion on the couch. With a few weeks of yoga I'll totally pull this off.

Hope you're all well! Over and out*

 

A Simpler Kinda Life on Rosi's Farm

I have been meaning to share these for a while. They are pictures I took whilst staying on my dear friend Ros's farm in Sedgefield, near Knysna. There's something so nostalgic for me about farms. I spent a good part of my childhood on my grandparents' farm in Zimbabwe, riding my bike for hours, on dusty roads, through fields and bush, sitting by the dam pondering everything and nothing, listening to the birds and feeling so far away from any form of hustle, bustle and stress.Rosi's farm is gorgeous. It felt more "English" than the farms in Zim but it still gave me that wonderful sensation of calm and escaping from city pressures for a while. We had a fabulous time, laying on the deck on the lake, having hot showers outside with a view of the hills and fields, walks along the long dusty roads and tea in the sun outside.

Where we slept... Niiiice :)

Nostalgia right here people...

And how perfect is this little still life?

Sunshine through the trees and hanging moss suggesting stillness... and age... rolling stones... a new saying is in there somewhere... "Leave me alone to gather some moss damnit!"

*Sigh* Take me hooommme country rooaad! To a plaaacce I beloooong! West of Sedgfield, south of Knysna... Take me hooomme, country roooaad! Cough cough ahem... anyway, twas a lovely getaway and chance to look back and be grateful for my wonderful childhood. Over and out*

StaceyBurr’s “Today we’re wearing” Part 3

We're heading back to the airport with this one. It's me folks. Headed from work to the airport to see a friend off. Lighting's not great but the dress is dark grey-blue with gathers on the sleeves and hips, and the tights grey blue, with tan boots and a scarf with white, grey and blue leopard print.
