HAPPY NEW YEAR!! And I hope you had a Blessed Christmas too.
After traveling for a month through some of Australia, New Zealand and Vanuatu I wondered what would you, the readers, want to see? I did not want to give you the typical holiday pics, and I did no DIY to speak of except the card box for my Niece’s wedding (the original reason for the trip to Oz) which was so no biggie, you would thank me for not showing you.
So I scanned through my photos and chose a few to show you from two beautiful 1922 homes, one in Brisbane, Australia and the other in Auckland, New Zealand. The rest just made me chuckle and I thought would capture the trip in a fun way.
These beauties above are all from one house in Brisbane. Killer beauty. 1922 main house with a bit of a modern update with the kitchen and family room. Spectacular rooms, spectacular hosts, and I wish I had taken more photos to show you, but frankly I was overwhelmed and not alone…
Next came this classy number from Auckland, New Zealand where a friend gets to live in this beautiful home.
And I couldn’t resist adding the next few pictures from a couple of restaurants.
I kind of want this in my house. Is that wrong?
Now for a few signs I thought you’d like as much as I did.
These three are from a bungee jump building in Queenstown, New Zealand. Believe it or not they are made from bajillions of Jelly Belly jellybeans! Impressive and good thing I wasn’t doing it. You’d be looking at blank pages. Yum.
A little blurry but hopefully you can still make it out. And no, I didn’t.
Frisbee golf! Who knew it was a thing? And no I didn’t do this either.
Yes please, every now and again.
OK not really signs, but still funny. Coffee shop cups from the Auckland airport. I totally did this.
Please don’t do what this sign says, Australians.
I swear I don’t know what this could mean. I was afraid to go in.
Good to know.
Good-er to know, but wishing I didn’t need to.
And there you have it. A four week trip condensed into 28 pictures. Excellent! Till next time. Got some projects up my sleeve.
