I hope that you all had a fab weekend! Since the official work year began for me, I’ve been working on a couple of exciting projects. I’ll reveal it all in due time, but it’s meant that I’ve had to work a little extra and on the weekend. I did manage to squeeze in some fun though (while my house falls apart around me and no washing done!), catching up with friends, having a lovely valentines brunch and a visit to one of the participating gardens in the Heroic Garden Festival. I’ve long admired this beautiful historic home in Grey Lynn but had no idea what an incredible garden it had behind the gates. It includes every flower, fruit and vegetable you could image, a huge chook enclosure and a natural pool where the owners swim amongst fish and water lilies. All of this, in the heart of inner city Grey Lynn! Remind me to put this fantastic event in my calendar for next year.
Some of you may recall that I won the category of best international interior blog in the AMARA Interior Blog Awards. I have been meaning to share the winner interview with you for a couple of weeks. I thought that I’d wait until I photograph my award which sits proud on my desk. It’s really a gorgeous one, as you’d expect if you’re familiar with AMARA, the organisers. Well, that photo will have to wait for someday soon on Instagram, but I do hope that you pop over to have a read about my winning the award, signature style and rebranding the blog.
