Candy Shop Jeanette dress - love this photo
Dining room chairs - simply gorgeous
XOXO cushion - must get this for my daughter, she puts kisses & hugs on all her art & cards

You get a feel for a person when you see inside their home, it's a real expression of their personality. I love this delightful home belonging to the talented Pilgrim, who's blog -

Patchwork is the new black

Because I'm such a sucker for pattern and colour, I'm loving the resurgence of patchwork. 
My most favourite shop ever (love, love, love it!) is Small Acorns in Wellington, mostly because it is packed full of the gorgeous Designers Guild. And one of the most admired pieces in their store is a little old french cot bed with it's patchwork mattress. Words cannot describe how I feel about it (maybe delicious!) - oh, so clever, Amanda.

Here are a few more patchwork pieces. Also digging Kristen Doran's cool crochet square stickers on the wall below.

Gypsy Beautiful

I've always loved Johnny Depp, ever since 21 Jump Street (now, that's showing my age!)
One of my favourite movies of his is Chocolat - yum, and I'm not talking about the chocolate! I think it was the whole beautiful gypsy thing, & I love a man who plays guitar.

I received the latest catalogue the other day from Overland Footwear - one of my favourite shoe shops. They always produce the most beautiful catalogues, and they definitely didn't disappoint me this time - look at these beautiful images. Who wouldn't want to be a gypsy if you could wear those shoes & those clothes (cute dog, too).

Audrey, Ava, Grace & Joan

I was lucky enough to attend the Craft Jam this week with my friend Bec. It was a chance to have a glass of wine, meet and chat with lots of cool like-minded ladies, and buy some beautiful handcrafted pieces.
My favourite stall of the night was Two Black Cats, where we met the lovely and very talented Sandi Reefman. Sandi lives here in Napier and designs and makes a gorgeous range of homeware. See a selection of her products below, and if you want to buy anything or have any queries drop her an email (tell her I sent you).
