Good morning lovely friends!This week we have been soooo over excited because… WE GOT A PUPPY! He is a beautiful little black lab and is just so so delicious. He wakes up every morning and surprises us every day with his happy little face. Gaahhh I am SO in love! So (just a warning) there may be many photos of him in the months to come.
Oh, and after a few days of trying to think of a cute name for him – I think ‘Frankie’ has stuck :)
Do you have any cool dog tricks I should teach this little guy?

Gooood Morning! This week we have got sooo much done on the house renovations – I’m looking forward to sharing some before & after images in the next few days. These will be of little DIY’s or even room make-overs we have done.
Last weekend I stayed at Kaiteri Beach – the image below shows the stunning view from one of the little walks near the beach. Sunset there is magic.

It’s been suuuuch a whirlwind crazy week! A few months ago mum and I decided doing up a house would be a fun adventure together – so here we are. Over the past week we have packed and lifted and are slowly putting everything into it’s right place. It is crazy how much ‘stuff’ you accumulate over the years. I’m excited to share our journey as we do up the house and as you can imagine, I have hundreds of super amazing ideas!

Yaaay for my word ‘adventure’ this year! I hope you’re all having a memory making & exciting week,xobec

Good morning lovely friends. This week I’ve been working on some art designs which I’ll share on the shop soon. It feels so good to be drawing again! Summer is so perfect in NZ at the moment – I am enjoying dining outdoors, maxi skirts, all the delicious berries & glasses of champagne with friends.
This weeks…
Video: TED Talks – ‘How I learned to stop worrying and love “useless” art‘ by Luke Syson.
Article: Beautiful photos by a mother & daughter of blowing bubbles in wintertime. SUCH a cool idea with amazing results.
Quote: “Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will” – Kerim Seddiki. This is so true. I love it. And need to remember it!

My art exhibition ‘of wildflowers & wings” ends this weekend. It’s been so amazing having my art displayed at the Old Post Office Store. If you’re in the area head out to the Moutere & treat yourself to this little slice of paradise!xobec
