This years alternative Christmas Tree is made from tasseled crepe paper and black card stars. Sooo easy. Im in absolute LOVE with this simple DIY. The reason we went for a wall tree is because of Frankie – our puppy who still finds chewing anything in sight, hilarious.
You can check out last years tree here – where I spray painted an old branch from the beach :) xobec

This Easter was all about getting off the beaten track and exploring some stunning spots in the South Island of New Zealand. Above are a few photos from the adventures! It was a terrible stormy weekend but when the sun peaks through as it disappeared behind the clouds, it gave a beautiful glow to the landscape. Those moments are what I love.
These photos were taken between the West Coast & Christchurch and also at Lake Coleridge.
Enjoy!

Daffodils & Oak Trees

Broadgreen house is so so pretty in Spring. Every year, I look forward to seeing the bright yellow haze of daffodils under the huge oak trees. There seems to be more every year – sometimes with bluebells! If you live in Nelson, or are visiting soon, make sure you check out this beautiful (and divine smelling) garden,xobec
