Faster Than The Setting Sun

Hoping that everyone had a marvelous heatwave like us fair English Roses here today....I think I was one of 5 people in the population that did not go to Glastonbury music festival...sigh. Other than that my week was kind of superb, MTV style  featured some of my images and said such wonderful things about Wunderlust... I love how everyone thinks I am so very English (even if I am an import all the way from South Africa. I must admit though; I do love crumpets and tea so I think I am half English anyway). The gorgeous Amanda from Here comes the Sun said my blog was one of her favorites (her blog is a complete maze full of inspiring and wonderful things) so I am truly honored. And the lovely Maria Elyse from First Impressions featured my first ever blog interview; her blog is uber cute and dreamlike ... full of the loveliest vintage items...

I have been sewing like a mad woman this week and I am really excited to announce that my Etsy shop will open soon,  I will be selling lovely over-the-top, superfluous feather and flower head-pieces like this one...that I can probably not wear in a small village or when I do the shopping, or anywhere but all-on-your-own in a big field where only cows can see, but who cares...if it is not practical, I like it.

I am wearing a River Island dress (as a top), Primark belt and a dress I bought in South Africa many years ago (as a skirt).

Into The Wild

"'who are you?' 
asked the Caterpillar.
'I hardly know, Sir.
I know who I was, 
but I think I must have changed.'"

I adore dressing up, even if it means I look slightly ridiculous. I am wearing a Topshop dress, an All Saints skirt with my favourite Alice in Wonderland hat xxx

"The sea pronounces something, over and over, in a hoarse whisper; I cannot quite make it out."

I am really fond of these images, even if I am a strange shade of purple (it was freezing),  they really make me miss the big blue ocean and my wonderful bf Lee.... I am slightly overwhelmed by all the marvellous comments...they are completely and utterly  inspiring and I haven't had time to reply to all but I promise I will; today!

 My fellow blogger friend Victoria recently did a post with a feather headband I made for her and I think she looks divine. I adore her blog so much.

I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend  (and I think it is about time for the rain to stop) xxx
I am wearing a Primark skirt and TK max top, Lee is wearing a Warehouse dress and handmade headpieces

Daydreams in Starlight

"The world is a book and those who do not travel only read a page ..."

Random images of my life.  Roses from my garden, books for the mind, daydreams of unicorns, words for the soul,  friendships of the heart and maps
 from the world. I hope everybody had a marvelous Sunday. It is raining cats and dogs here... my favourite kind of popcorn and duvet weather xxx

Where the Wild Roses Grow

"if nothing ever changed...there would be no butterflies" 

Something different for today...I am wearing a simple lace Topshop dress and River Island socks...the roses a gift from my Granny  (and yes the wings belong to me xxx)

Maker Faire 2011– Bay Area Recap

Each year, I head out to Maker Faire, thinking I’ve seen it all, but I know that can’t be true. And year after year…well, I haven’t been disappointed yet! Besides enjoying some quality time in the gorgeous California sun, we managed to get our project demos up and running for the event.

Here’s the booth, with Will and Francis doing some final setup work on the projects.

Testing the Projects

Of course, it wouldn’t be Maker Faire without Gerard’s Paella, which also makes for a great excuse to meet and mingle with some fellow makers:


By Saturday, we had a chance to deck out the booth with the RC “street view” car, affectionately named Zippy :)

Zippy with a Camera

The car had a PS3 Eye camera strapped on to stream video out onto the BeagleBoard and BeagleTouch, which was something I only dreamed of doing as a kid. DIY tech has come a long way since!

Speaking of DIY (and open source) tech, it’s pretty neat to see that the Arduino hasn’t lost any steam. Google put together an Android Accessory Development Kit that they were giving out.

Google Android Accessory Development Kit Box

It comes with an Arduino Mega-based board with an onboard USB host and USB OTG port, and the Accessory Demo Shield (bottom). The Accessory Demo Shield is especially neat…it’s like the ultimate controller/debugger shield, all in one. Buttons, relays, servo connectors, joystick and even a touch sensor! It puts a whole new spin on the kinds of Android/Beagle/Arduino projects I want to do…

Google Android Accessory Development Kit

Microchip and Digilent came out with a PIC32 that Mark shared with me. Pretty cool, since I can now drive all sorts of Arduino shields with a PIC controller…

Back at the booth, Will, Francis and I met a lot of hackers who stopped by to play around with the projects.

Android Demo


Each of us had a few moments to sneak away from the booth (in shifts) to wander through the Faire and check out what everyone else was up to.

I think this was the best country stage ever…the front porch if an old Western house.

CIMG6630 (Large)

A little steampunk and futuristic in a video-game kinda way, there’s nothing that stops you in your tracks like a robot sculpture that shoots fire. All I could say was…wow!

Robot that Shoots out Fire

And the most efficient four-wheeler ever- a new take on the tandem bike. I would love to have one of these, and maybe even mount an enclosure on this. I wonder what a cross-country road trip on this human powered car would be like. Probably fun and a great exercise :)

Most Fuel Efficient Four Wheeler

That’s all I pulled off the camera for now, and I’ll upload more pictures to Flickr when I get them. Thanks again to all the makers and hackers who stopped by, and I’ll be on the edge of my seat waiting for the next Maker Faire!

Bicycles with Wings

One must never grow up, always cherish the magic and beauty in life... 

How cute is my little family? Lilly seems to be the cherry on top. And Pony is my golden bike with wings...I am wearing a River Island dress and socks and New look brogues, Matteo is wearing man clothes (just trowing on what he can find xxx)

Little Liver Lilly

I couldn't resist, and introduction to the worlds most stylish dog, way ahead of the fash pack. Always very eager to assist on photo shoots, usually stealing the limelight. This is Lilly my best friend and partner in crime, a chihuahua cross.

Secret Garden

"In the night time we are found.  
Misty sorrow swoop unbound.
Whisper you mean it, say you'll stay.
Hold my heart till brighter days

I drove past true love once in a dream.
Like a house that caught fire it burned and flamed.
Then the magician disappeared as quickly as he came.
And with a sound like white magic.
Caught in a black car's blazing trail." Bat for Lashes

We like having tea for two...a favourite English pass time. I had to bribe Lilly to sit still and wear ridiculous things again! I definitely recommend buying skirts big enough so they can be worn as dresses....this is a maxi skirt from Asos, I prefer it as a dress. The effect quite dreamy (and isn't Lilly creamy?).
