I have experimented a bit, making stuffed cushions with holes and triangles for new bag ideas. These are the samples, there is still a lot of work to do!

Bunting for Family

This bunting is going to fly overseas and soon will swing in the breeze on a warm summer Sunday on my family's balcony in Amsterdam. I wished I was there!

Be prepared for the chill with hotties from retreasured

These huggable hotties will keep you warm and cosy with style on those  cold winter nights. My cat thinks so too, so it must be true. I am going to make more hottness in different colours, availabe at Portico in Lyttelton. Stay warm this winter!

retreasured likes recreate

Isn't it awesome to see junk turned into some extraordinary functional new creations! These very individual and out of the ordinary pieces are designed by Katie Thompson an interior designer from South Africa. Her beautiful furniture can be found on her website or shop and she was also interviewed in the latest Frankie magazine.

New from Old

What was once holding vast amounts of still green coffee beans waiting to be roasted is now turned into neat baskets. They can still hold beans but are also useful little containers in the kitchen or the kid's room for those small toys, or simply for your keys and knick knacks, or....

Another great new and very well selling product is the pleated purse which closes with a neat vintage button to hold all your treasures with style!

I am now selling these beauties not only at markets around Christchurch but also at Portico in Lyttelton on 48 London Street and Flock, a great new design store in Sumner, check them out!
