New Zealand – Deco delights

I’m back in the UK now, and still catching up on news and sorting through all the holiday snaps. Here are some from the north island of New Zealand – including from the capital Wellington, art deco town Napier, and the amazing geothermal experience at Wai-O-Tapu.

I’m also busy preparing for a Christmas market in a couple of weeks – rather a lot of time spent at the sewing machine! I’ll post some photos of the products I’m making soon. The market is on 15 December, right next to Brockley station in south London.

In the meantime, here’s my photos from the truly beautiful NZ.

Rebuilt after a devastating earthquake in 1931, central Napier is an art deco paradise.

This is just a small selection of photos we took!

It's all beautifully looked after but also a living town, not just a museum

Smelly, bubbling, boiling hot pools - no swimming here
