Whatever language you may use or in whatever country you may live I would like to take this time to wish you all a very joyous festive season and a Happy New Year.

Thank you one and all for following my blog over the last twelve months, it certainly has been a year of change and excitement for me with the arrival of my Grandson who has brought so much joy and love to our lives.
Here is his latest Christmas photo to show you just how adorable he is….it melts my heart every time he smiles!


New Zealand Jewelry


I love working for Ariki New Zealand Jewellery and being involved with such an awesome “family”
I continue to be inspired and enamoured with the beautiful Paua Shell whether it be used in Jewellery or decoration in my garden… I have even used some to make a Christmas tree this year and would like to share this with you.

Paua Christmas Tree

I’m now looking forward to a couple of week’s holidays spending time in our beautiful awe-inspiring Marlborough Sounds on sun soaked summers days, resting and relaxing with family and friends.
So until next year…… mihi ki aku hoa – farewell my friends
