The vibrant tension between old and new items alongside each other and the surprise of traditional in a contemporary and unexpected way makes me happy. I delight in filling life with hand crafted creations and objects found in obvious and sometimes obscure places.

I was educated as a Home Economist,  have worked in journalism and interior design and owned an eclectic coffee shop. Since its inception in 2007,  I’ve designed and co-ordinated the making of Freshly Found products, photographed them, sent them around the world, supplied private and corporate customers, and taken them to markets and the Design Indaba.

I am a coffee snob, an ENFP and a fan of my family – I have raised creative children and am a wife to a very interesting husband.  I spend hours designing, re-inventing, recycling and creating.

I found your website while looking through a wedding magazine with my fiancé and immediately liked what I saw. I really love your origami roses and would love to have them as the boutonniere’s, something so different form the traditional ones.

 

 

I picked up my bag yesterday and again, beautiful packaging. Thank you for my lovely note and bag and for your speedy service. It is always a pleasure buying anything from your magical shop as I share your passion for recycling. May you continue to inspire creativity and sustainability. A sincere thank you Denise

First of all, many thanks for getting the two paper Protea samples couriered here in time for my preview. It went exceptionally well and the  client just LOVED the Paper Proteas. We will definitely be using these in our table decor treatment for the function.

While searching for a suitable picture for the conference poster, I came across your fascinating blogs. We would very much like to use one of your images and I am writing in order to clear the rights.
