These images are from a linen feature Tanya and I styled a while back (it's one of my favourite shoots I've done to date). Mostly I like the moodiness and messiness. We tried to setup each bed so you can imagine what type of person may sleep there. This shoot appeared in the October/November issue of HOME New Zealand magazine.

Last month I got creative with crepe paper, making all kinds of easy decorations perfect for a summer gathering or a bit of christmas entertaining. This project can be seen in the December Christmas issue of Your Home & Garden magazine.

My packs of striped paper straws arrived in the post today, how exciting! I've been on the hunt for these beauties for a long while (got em in pink, red and green). They look so cute in glass milk bottles and paper cups, perfect for styling. I bought online via Katydid Paper Goods (for a very reasonable price), check out her website here. She sells bakers twine too!

By now many of you will be familar with this neat little publication 'extra curricular' put together by Ellie Smith. Well... issue four (right) is out soon, in time for christmas. I've done a wee craft project that will appear in the holiday activity book which comes free with the issue. Make sure you snap up a copy when it hits the shelves, that sweet cover art is hard to resist!
Covers: from here.

I visited this great wee cafe 'little and friday' (43C Eversleigh Road,Takapuna) a few weeks back while on the north shore. My art director had raved about it and she wasn't wrong, such a gem. It is very cleverly put together, from the turquoise floors, delicious sweet treats lining the shelves, to the collection of vintage chairs all painted white. It's only open a few days a week, but during that time it's a thriving little hot spot.
