tapa modern

                                  The eternal Outpost  slip dress - made in a vintage tapa print cloth embellished with sixties gold trim -  i like the way it works with the detail in this painting - which is one of my favourites from  Barbara Strathdee's Riffs   and Transitions series.

waitangi 2010

Waitangi Day is a great day out  for people spotting and food tasting. This year there were very many  food stalls - I lucked out  and chose the right one (long queue of locals was a  giveaway) and tasted a
fresh mussel fritter that was so delicious, I don't care if I ever taste one again - also amazing was the creamy  kina soup with fried bread. If you are ever in Northland in the begining of February - Waitangi is where you want  to be!
