Very recently my son and I had a 12 hour stop over in Hong Kong en route to New Zealand.
I admit HK hasn’t been on my ‘must see’ list, but that has changed now.
With only half a day to explore, the question was, which ‘one’ area would tempt us?
A short Google and cappuccino later we headed for Cat Street, Kowloon…the antique precinct. Need I say more?
The tangled nest of hillside streets is home to an eclectic mix of street vendors peddling everything from jade dragons and Chairman Mao statuettes, to patriotic posters, beads and much more.Throw in some pokey dusty ‘treasure’ shops, fabulous antique emporiums, the odd jewellery boutique and some really lovely art galleries – modern abstracts to traditional Chinese brushwork.… Read More
Bonjoir a tous,
Today I am dreaming of France, recent holidays and those yet to come… Arles, Aix, Avignon, La Rochelle… so many places to re-visit or discover for the first time.

Maeght Miro Gallery, Saint Paul de Vence: www.fondation-maeght.com
The Henri Matesse Chapel (Rosaire Chapel) in Vence: www.ville-vence.fr

Apart from working well with twilly scarves, they can also be paired with ties to create a funky corporate ensemble.
Our artisan gold and silversmith in New Zealand has created this stunning Liberatti Tie Pin for the modern woman.… Read More
This week we are feeling the intoxicating effects of the movie the world is crushing on – The Great Gatsby. With Gatsby fever taking hold we too have been spellbound by the glitz and glamour of the epic extravaganza, and felt compelled to create a montage of sorts based on the luxurious theme.
Inspired by the bold and brilliant extravagance of New York in the 1920’s, we selected a gorgeous shimmering Chanel dress paired with black Gucci courts. Accessories were paramount in this era, so the sparkling Lamvin clutch finished with a Chanel necklace and an art deco scarf ring completes the Gatsby look.… Read More
