Day 261 : My dad always told us that when he was little, he could get 4 Wilson’s Toffee’s for one cent at the corner store. I guess that’s why they call them “the good old days”.

Two days ago, #365postcardsforants was featured on Colossal, and since then it’s been spreading like wildfire. I want to thank all the amazing websites and blogs who have featured the project during the last two days, and all my supporters, old and new - you guys enable me to live the dream and for that I am forever grateful. I’m receiving a massive influx of mail at the moment and it’s going to take me a while to get around to all of them, so please bear with me. ❤️ #thankyou #wdc624  (at Cape Town Vredehoek)

POSTCARD UPDATE : Hello everyone. I’m having some major issues with this month’s postcards. 1. My printers were a week late delivering them. 2. The SA Post Office is striking. 3. I’m stuck in bed with what feels like food poisoning. 

To be safe, I want to wait until the strikes are over before I send them (there are over 200 postcards in the batch). Please email me if you are based in Cape Town and this is a huge issue for you, in which case you could collect next week (i would need some time to process them). I’m so sorry about the delays. 😥 🐜💌 #365postcardsforants #wdc624 #postcard #frustration (at Cape Town Vredehoek)

I painted this little apple for the Lyle & Scott 140 Series, and the original is currently up for auction. It’s the only available painting I currently have (and the first one available outside my #365postcardsforants series). Check out the link in my profile if you’d like to place a bid (scroll down to 1984). 🍏 #lyleandscott #140series #anappleaday #miniature #watercolour #painting  (at Buchanan Square)
