Comment from Kim Lane:


Because the light is softer in the living room, I set myself the challenge of creating a dining setting smack in the middle using trestle legs and one of my backboards. The trickery of photography! EDIT: just realised I’ve not loaded the pic I have of the candle beautifully lit and glowing 🙈 That’s what happens when you load to Insta in a rush between jobs! I’m reasonably happy though - you can’t tell that the sofa is right in behind, or the dog is lying behind the chair, and you can’t see the pile of books and mags I had to move to make space 🙌🏼 I’ve loaded these beautiful beeswax candles to the store today and there’s a deal if you purchase a candle and holder together.

The thing about having a birthday in early Jan - major holiday time - is that sometimes I get gifts in the middle of Feb when life is back to normal! Loving my my new mustard coloured dish and bracelets 🙌🏼 I might have a slight obsession with small bowls and bracelets so this friend knows me oh so well 💛 styled_negativespace with @prettycreativestyle @vinylhome

Some days we walk down a ‘private access’ and through this gate to get to our local (that’d be the beach not the pub 😆) I’ve often thought it looks like somewhere you’d visit on an island holiday, and that holiday makers must be stoked when they discover our beach for the first time. We’re so lucky and sometimes I still pinch myself that we ended up here 10 years ago this June grateful lovemanlynz

Stumbled across this simple shot when scrolling through photos just now, deleting madly to free up space 😖(such a first world problem right there) I can barely remember taking it....think it was a quick snap when the light was catching nicely on this twig. Everyone had a good weekend? In the rain like us? Thinking there’s a lot more to come ☔️

Morning all! If you saw my Stories over the weekend you’ll know that I created a few more cleaning products. Here’s the completed Rose cleaning paste. I had already bought the Peppermint version from @greengoddessnz last year, and this time I just made a refill. There are few ingredients and easily found. You can buy them from wendyls.co.nz, @figgy_and_co, your local Binn Inn or similar. For Aucklanders out there, I made my first visit to Goodfor last week and was impressed 🙌🏼 I live 25 minutes from Ponsonby so it’s not worth a special trip for me though. Hope your week goes well!

Keeping hold of the holiday feels....just!! Girls go back to school next Wednesday and I’m starting to feel the need for routine. The to do list is growing and only essential work is getting done😣Still, it’s great to go with these slower days and I’m trying hard to stay calm! How are you dealing with the work/kids juggling act?

Trademe score! Four Simon James dining chairs....the white ones. Yes the paintwork is tired and the legs have surface rust (that I’m sure I’ll remove) but they were a bargain and are beautifully made 🙌🏼 I was quite deflated driving home with them yesterday but after a really good scrub I’m now totally stoked. Happy 💃🏼

I swam with plastic yesterday. I was pretty shocked actually. I collected 15 pieces within the first couple of minutes and then lost count. We’ve had stormy weather so I guess it’s washing up. Made me more motivated to work on eliminating all sorts of plastic from our weekly shop. Takes planning and effort but this was another wake up call. Sad post for your Monday morning ☹️

A simple mix of black tea and water removes rust. Really? Yes it does 🙌🏼 Soak, wipe with a cloth, and repeat if necessary. I’ve spruced up my salad dressing lid, herb scissors, and a knife found in the garden last week 🤷🏼‍♀️ Thanks to @eleanorozich for the recipe. You’ll find more natural cleaning and body care recipes in her new book The Art of Simple. I’ve used natural cleaning products for years now but have been researching new recipes because mine are pretty basic. I will share them as I make them up and put them to work. I plan to use more essential oils....cleaning’s a chore so a gorgeous scent has to help! Plus there are antibacterial properties in many like tea tree, eucalyptus, clove, orange etc. Watch this space 😳

I’ve dropped off the Insta Landscape! Completely unintentional but I’ve been trying hard to keep the holiday feels by only working half days and hanging with the fam. (Not that Insta is work 😉) Lots of beach time, oh and clearing out of parts of the home....love doing this in January. Seems to get the year off on a fresh, clean slate and I notice other Insta buddies doing the same 😇 Love this pic of my two...15 and 13 now. I don’t dare add 5 years to those ages knowing how quickly 5 years speeds by 🙈 Happy New Year everyone! isittoolateforHNY?

We have amazing neighbours. So lucky. Every year since the girls were little I’ve baked something and packaged it nicely for the girls to deliver. They used to dress up in Christmas costumes but this year they put a Santa suit on Charlie 🐶 instead and took him with them. This time the gift is rocky road, and they made that on their own too. I just took a picture using the leftovers 🤷🏼‍♀️ Merry Christmas everyone and I hope you have neighbours as lovely as mine!

My teens still like an advent calendar. This one from @honestchocolat is gorgeous. Each day holds a different treat (and a message), and they’re all high quality and natural tasting. These were a gift from @itsorganicdarling an online store soon to open with only organic goods...makeup, skincare, food, homewares, etc. Keep your eyes peeled! 😳

The chambray weave, where the weft yarn is white and the warp is coloured, creates a more textured finish which I LOVE. Think of your favourite denim pieces where the blue is woven with white and the relaxed and lived-in feel that creates. In this throw, the chambray weave means you get different coloured tassels along the width and length. Quite cool huh? fortheloveoflinen chambraylinen duskypink

A girly flatlay for your Friday! There’s a frenzy of Black Friday sales that I’ve woken up to in my inbox this morning. Not sure what I feel about this....my gut feeling when I got a flyer in the post this week was YUK - but this is because of the images of frenzied shoppers seen in doco The True Cost. Anyone see that? It was quite disgusting really. So when I realised this marketing campaign had come to NZ I wasn’t happy. But I see that even the ‘eco, ethical, sustainable’ brands are in on the action so...? I’ve not organised any promos on my shop because of this so instead I’ll do Free Shipping all weekend instead, while I further debate my thoughts on Black Friday!! 🙉 (those who know me well will tell you I’m a ‘fence sitter’. Can always see two sides to a debate. I’d not make a good politician or lawyer ohwell
