It was great to escape the office at lunchtime last week, explore a cool Cape Town boutique and get some inspiration. Rhubarb Room overlooks busy Buitengracht Street, and is stocked with all-manner of gorgeous, unusual home trinkets, gifts, ribbon, notebooks and cards, pewter pieces and clothes. (Baby Birdie spotted this birdcage moneybox – the perfect way to save for my wishlist – which I think I'll have to go back for.) We parked on the steep, cobbled streets of colourful Bo Kaap, and on our walk to the shop, got some respite from the humid February weather with a short shower of huge summer raindrops.
