kiwiana .......




Kiwiana ..... all the kitsch and classic icons of our past ,....
it's amazing how comforting it is to find fish and chips wrapped in newspaper in a 50s tearooms style restaurant ....






..

..


i have excellent memories while flatting, of moving all our furniture outdoors on to the lawn on the weekend having the indoors outdoors ...including massively heavy deco lounges ,lamps, tables and dinosaur garden sculptures...

yesterday after lurking around in the art galleries, i found a new favourite bar reminiscent of that .... scruffy old couches out
in the alleyway ...a huge firewall ... good cloudy bay NZ wine







and a guy walking the tightrope between the buildings in the alley above us...



doesn't get much better than this .........in my opinion ..... :D
ahhhhh lovely !!!
