Monday Mix Up

Happy Monday to you all. Sorry for my lack of posting last week. The winter bugs finally got a hold of me. I'll tell you what though, these warmer days and evenings are getting me excited for the summer months ahead. We enjoyed a quiet family weekend. We headed over to Palmerston North for the day yesterday. I was most excited to get to a health bar/café that I had heard of. (Yes that was my highlight) Got there, a busy Sunday with plenty of people in town and it was blimmen shut. So yes, lunch was fairly disappointing. If anyone has any great eating suggestions in Palmerston North, let me know. I was always come away disappointed because I don't know where to go and seem to settle for something that I don't actually want to eat!






Right, first up, such a massive fan of this latest collection for the clever clever team at Nature Baby. And I can say first hand, that as always the quality is incredible. How cute are those little fish shorts?




Secondly, I have featured designer Caroline Z Hurley several times on the blog before. Her work is super cool and unlike everything else on the market. Both of my kids had quilts when they were in cots, in fact Patch still does have a quilt. I love quilts. They look great and always tidy. These cots quilts by Caroline would make any nursery look amazing.







Lastly, when I spotted this home in the latest Homestyle Magazine, it was fair to say, I was smitten. This newly renovated home belongs to talented foodie, Gretchen Lowe from My Weekend Table. Gretchen enlisted the help of Lloyd Hartley Architects to get the 1930s bungalow renovation underway. Opening everything up was a top priority for the family and it was obvious that the home of popular foodie was going to have one seriously good looking Kitchen and that they did.
