Woohooo for Secret Santa!!!

The European Street Team had a secret santa game which was organised by the brilliantly creative ArtMind. The gist of the game is that we are all matched with another european seller and have to make something for that person based on the information from their questionnaire that they completed. This year my secret santa came all the way from Barcelona in Spain ...

Fantastically she was able to send the package to me in our new home right here in Christchurch, New Zealand ... THANK YOU so much PALEOLOCHIC!!!!

The delightfully creative Moira a.k.a PALEOLOCHIC made me a superbly stylish set of Lavendar hangings and also sent me a seriously beautiful magnet for my fridge! Thank you so much :D I've hung the lavendar sachets throughout the house .. wonderfully fragrant!
It's been such an honor to have been part of this majestically warm and wonderful team. I miss 'the girls' and I certainly miss europe.

A special thanks to you Mitsy, everyone appreciates all of your hard work in putting the Secret santa together .. you are one in a million girl :D

Just a day at the beach

It's certainly hard for me to believe that we moved to NZ 3 months ago ... in the coming days i'll be blogging like never before (no giggles please Mitsy if you read this) ... there's so much I have yet to share with you, our summer road trip through Europe, secret presents from my gorgeous EST pals, secret santa, meet ups with wonderful europe etsy sellers ... and no doubt more! But today, well, today I want to share with you a couple of pic's from our beach trip yesterday. I took the kids to Okains Bay outside of Christchurch (the city we live in).

We frolicked around in the breaker waves .. the kids absolutely loved it!
