from my recent North Island Trip... not more holiday snaps, just things that took my fancy...maybe you'll like them too...
Yes, I could live in a house that looked like this, no problem at all...isn't it gorgeous? It is in Russell, Bay of Islands, and the beach is just across the road. I think it had a sign outside saying it was for hire as a holiday let.
Vintage advertisements from wartime, displayed in the National Army Museum, Waiouru.
A gorgeous shop in a cute building in Cambridge
The one next door was gorgeous too...
I enjoyed browsing in the shop inside The Stone Store in Kerikeri. They had some things for sale, and vintage grocery items etc on display...many of them looked familiar to me from long ago...and many more were well before my time!
Kiwis will recognise the tomato sauce bottle - they are still going strong! I had to explain to my daughter what the glass bottles in the crate were, and as I heard myself explaining all about how the milkman used to come around in a truck, and deliver milk, and we paid with tokens and not money, I felt very very old, like I was describing ancient history! Oh how things have changed since I was a kid...I used to cringe when adults would say how it was 'in their day', and now I am doing it....arggggghhh!
The smaller glass bottle was of course for cream :)
I fell instantly in love with the pink fridge!
Back to reality now...the usual program of Befores and Afters will resume shortly...holidays are great but I can't wait to get stuck back into some paint tins!
