Hi there! I am an South African expat, living in the lovely Kent countryside in the UK.
I love everything meaningful and beautiful - so I try my hand at photography, painting, embroidery, needlework, cooking and writing.

My inspiration for all of this: the people that I love,
and the love that God has for me.

A labour of love

Our beautiful, talented youngest daughter’s wedding took place in August 2015.

The challenge that had come my way was to be creative and come up with a stunning ring cushion. 

Exercise and fitness

I often find that I work really hard to look good outwardly – working out at the gym regularly, dressing properly in order to make a good impression. But I so easily forget that God isn’t blinded by my manners or impressed by my correct conversations because He knows that the not so healthy thoughts that I foster in my heart WILL some or other time pop out of my mouth, or even explode into inexplicable actions.


I have had enough of praying!

Every morning, the last touch on my newly-made bed is the two handfuls of ornamental hearts that remind me to pray for my children and grandchildren – that God would keep them safe and that their lives would glorify his Name, whether in their relationships, their work or play.
