Ellen Jonker  My heart beats to the rhythm of the music in my soul. Passionate about home décor, gardening & brocante. Happily part of the creative @woodnewz team.


Very busy, naughty and desperate for food. The local wildlife on our doostep never fail to entertain us. Climbed through our bedroom window while @thinusjonker was having a nap! 😂 Nothing stops them, not even a half asleep, or fully awake human!

A magical evening that went by way too soon. Best friends since we were little girls. My dearest @ernajoubert2 and her husband spent time with us for a few short hours. Geat food and best service from @lupa_osteria as always. Vince, you were an awesome waiter!
'n Kosbare kuier-aand met beste vriende van ver af. Die tyd het net te vinnig verbygevlieg!

No better life than Gingerboy's.

@woodnewz have been creating serving platters with small bowls for condiments, olives, dips, marinated veggies, butter, (whatever you want to) for a long time and they are ever so popular. You can have the boards personalised with names, initials, dates or a message to give that all time long lasting gift. We also manufacture ones with four bowls. We will be at @iheartmarket on the first Saturday of August. Also available from our @woodnewz workshop. #servingplatters #cuttingboards #weddinggifts #kitchen #catering #woodnewz #iheartmarket

Time to start cooking...the bleak late afternoon winter sun is fading fast.

There's nothing to chase away the winter cold like great memories. Throwback to January this year, when we spent time in CapeTown with our @simoneypoloney at @thegrandafrica. Priceless moments! #tbt #thegrandafrica

Optical illusion if ever there was one.
I love reflection photos. I tried to portray the grey, cold, windblown outside garden. Instead of a cold, wild garden, I saw the light...twice reflected. Not intentional. Maybe it's a sublime message to focus on the light...not the cold, grey shadows life throw at us.

The latest @woodnewz masterpiece at @planbdessertery in Durban North. This pretty little princess and her family were waiting for their order. @thinusjonker used Oak, Pencil Cedar, American Cherry, Kiaat and African Mahogany to create this beautiful piece.

My faithful little studio companion. Gingerboy is mostly next to me or on my lap, while little Sandy crawls into the deepest folds of her duvet.

A great read. Full of suspense, loads of real life drama from beginning to end...and then I read at the very back of the book it was partially based on the truth and I became speechless with awe.

A long time broken light fitting was fixed today, bathing a very dark spot into glorious light!

Leave me alone, can't you see I'm in dreamland?
