Our family friend Kay hosted us while in Port Elizabeth. I loved his house! It is an old Victorian architecture kind of house that was built in the 1850’s. The exterior has been modified to keep up with the times but the interior is so blissfully in the 1850’s – hardwood floors and pretty windows. We loved how he has put up his collection of knick-knacks and how recycles various items for better use.
With his permission, I took some photos of things in his house for the blog.
An owl made of sisal thread. Too cute!!!
I need a better camera. This lamp was pretty amazing. It was so beautiful, my camera isn’t doing it any justice.
I liked this table top especially how the light was passing through the bottles…..
A shelf with too many nice items, can’t point all of them out!
The men on a walk…. I loved this piece!
A lampshade surrounded by pretty artistic items
An upclose look at the knick knacks on the fireplace
A lamp made of recycled material. The part on the right got detached and is supposed to be on top of the bottle.
An upclose photo of a bin he designed and made using old PET soda bottles and wires
An ‘aerial’ view of the bin
There is an old piano on the wall and a functional keyboard on the foreground. Very artistic.
