Winter has struck and my senses are drawn to the crisp air and blue skies.  Nature calls and my hands want to get dirty!

Woodwork has always been a passion but, it was no option as a subject for girls back when I was still attending my senior years in school.  I craved to craft and finally now I've started with teeny bits of decor.

Pletty Ysterhout Lepels - HANDMADE in Knysna

Ritzie is selling the most beautiful images, mounted on wooden boxes with personalized quotes.  Most of my work is bilingual, but my specialty is found in Afrikaans, my mother-language, my pride.

From image boxes to wall-decor and a few pieces that was collected at a local market in Plettenberg Bay.  Wooden spoons, ideal to stir that potjie, made from ironwood. Guaranteed quality and handmade by Oom Sampie - almost 90 years of age.  Limited stock is left of this excellence.  Kitchen hooks and wineglass carriers that slides over the neck of the bottle, are still available too.
