In Napier there are walls with poetry inscribed on them, but yesterday walking down a laneway (alley way) I found this... a memory of the 1931 earthquake through a child’s eyes... #napier #alleyway #laneway #graffiti #memory #earthquake #napierearthquake #1931

10 years ago I was fortunate to be a part of a project by director Tim Pope ( @timpopedirector on Twitter) he took some amazing photographs and I love this one the best... I was wearing a lovely sequinned chiffon jacket by @antikbatik_paris which I still own and treasure... Tim has made movies and videos and worked with the likes of The Cure, Bowie and Neil Young, Iggy Pop amongst others, so I feel very honoured to have been the focus of his attention for a day or two! #15minutesoffame #timpopedirector #photography #antikbatik #sequins #curlyhair #sparkly

Oh My! Adding some sparkle to Dorothy’s shoes with my hot fix wand and some pretty ruby #swarovski crystals! I hand dye all my linen with @ritdye it’s a fantastically versatile powdered dye and their website has hundreds of dye recipes for achieving different colours ! #rubyslippers #rubyshoes #sparklyshoes #thewonderfulwizarddofoz #thewizardofoz #applique #appliqué #bag #handmade #dorothy #dorothygale #ritdye #handdyed #magicwand #silverstar #linen #leather
