Our latest family member!

We will be moving at the end of the month to our new home and studio in Stellenbosch and this cute puppy will be welcoming you at the front door!
Time to introduce the latest member of our family: Putto, our Berger Blanc Suisse puppy! It's not an easy task to decide on a name for a pet, but since we hope that he'll be our guardian angel, we decided on Putto. In Renaissance art, a ...putto is a figure depicted as a chubby male child, usually nude and sometimes winged. In the Baroque period of art, the putto came to represent the omnipresence of God.  Puppy classes on Saturday's and goodness me, it's a life saver - Putto, like any active puppy, can really be challenging!  No more valuables lying around, especially shoes seem to be a big favourite. 

Elsje Designs is also venturing more into décor (home and table décor for entertainment), but more news in this regard will follow soon.  Watch this space!
