thirt times the charm

Bum I’ve just wasted hours trying to update my blog. I wrote a long piece but my mac crashed twice and lost the document both times so here’s a short version… I’ve moved to the centre of Wellington, which is great because it’s only quarter of an hours walk to everything I need and even less to my work. Above is the view from my balcony – yes a balcony I’ve always always wanted one. The only down side (apart from living in the earth quake zone) is that I now get woken in the middle of the night by pissed students singing ‘we are the champions’ I do not concur, they are most defiantly not the champions.

I wanted to also show my breakfast as it was so good and it's Sunday the only day I really make a meal of it :) Simply Paris the café round the corner really does live up to it’s name this pistachio and chocolate swirl tastes better than it looks…

But the main reason I wanted to post was to share some images of these suitcases I bought on trade me (NewZealands answer to ebay). I’m now the proud owner of twenty or would be if Gilly hadn’t taken a few off my hands. A lot are off to the charity shop but these four are staying with me. I have always loved old boxes, trunks and suitcases but I’ve bought these with a plan in mind. I’m very happy to be sorting out display ideas for my first outing at a craft fair as a seller. I’ll be part of Wellingtons Craft 2.0. I’m designing my stand on the idea of a travelling sales man… not quite sure how it’s going to work yet but I’m hoping it’s going to be fabulous.


  1. Those old suitcases are fabulous!

  2. I know, I'm very pleased with them. I think I love the old stickers on the top one best.

  3. LOVE the suitcases! And I hate that when the computer crashes on you when you're in the middle of doing something. My computer always seems to crash when I'm in the middle of editing my pictures, and of course then I always forget to save them, have to redo.

  4. I love old suitcases too! the ones with old stickers are best!
