  1. Thanks for bringing us back to the Owl House, Robbie. I enjoyed the tour of the interior. I really like the cupboard. It appears to be built into the wall and I love those doors. Thanks for including the interior shots that highlight the decorations in the house.

  3. I remember you mentioned this place and after checking the previous post, I see why your husband and sons felt bad vibes, although I like the variety of colours and textures. Although the style is very different, it reminds me of Charleston Farmhouse, where Vanessa Bell (Virginia Woolf’s sister) lived. Thanks for sharing this wonderful post, Robbie and happy weekend!

  4. I love the bold colors and the ceiling in the kitchen, and many great doors for this post, Robbie. But I don’t think I could live there either. It would be a bit too much on a daily basis, but a great place to visit.

  5. A wonderful and organized presentation, Robbie. I felt that I could step through the screen and be there with you. Ever since your first post, I have given Helen Martins and her life’s work considerable thought. I read that she was shy and rarely seen on the streets of Nieu Bethesda. And yet, on the other hand, she was a teacher, and when she married for the first time, she traveled our the country acting in theatre productions.Her duty and compassion was demonstrated when she cared for her parents, which appeared to be difficult given her abusive father. But her most glorious asset was her commitment to her art and free spirit. I LOVED the colours and could see how she became immersed in the magic of creating. Always a joy to stop by for a visit.

    1. HI REbecca, Helen Martins certainly found a pathway to happiness through her art. I suspect she became withdrawn because she spent so much time alone. Abusive parents is quite a common trend among some sections of the SA population. Helen’s circumstances reminded me of the poet, Ingrid Jonker, who I wrote about here:

      1. I remember that brilliant post, Robbie. In fact, I have “saved” it and have come back to it several times because I am very interested, and am involved in a personal project, to understand how sadness influences the creative journey.
