A Day to remember....

Time has passed but the hurt and sadness is still the haze that clouds all who live in Christchurch.
Today we are blessed that we have each other, thankful family and friends were not taken from us a year ago. With heavy hearts we cry for those who did.
We said farewell to Tete a Tete vintage and let her know she is in our heart forever.

Happiness and sadness holding hands.

love to you


  1. Thinking of you and the city today. <3 xx

  2. 'happiness and sadness holding hands', how very true. i stood in just that place today.

    i worked on high street, and it's hard to explain to others the amount of grief you feel, after losing every aspect of your daily routine, with its familiar faces and favourite spots.

    feeling for you. tete a tete made my list of chch memories i'm celebrating today -

  3. Even in our local newspaper here in Germany was an article about the terrible earthquake in Christchurch a year ago. It tells that you had thousand smaller earthquakes since then and that a lot of people left the town. I only can wish you all the best and send you many hugs from Germany!

  4. Oh what a sad day, for you and so many others. xxxxx

  5. So sad. We were all thinking of you guys yesterday. Hard to believe that it was already a year ago isn't it. I think it is amazing how you have managed to pick yourself up and make the best out of a shitty situation. Hope your online store is going to e a roaring success, can't wait for it to open!

  6. Hi Loves,
    I miss the little green home that you lived in too, I miss the afternoon light slipping in through the lace curtains and exquisite piece of the moment on display, hitting the twinkling rhinestones in the jewellery cabinet. The dancing rainbow lights which ensued always delighted me as they flittered on my lap, playing on the folds of fabric, glinting on a crystal button, bouncing off my needle as I sewed. It was a wonderous little cave of treasures, as was the squirrel nest. I felt like I was in a school in the nest sometimes, writing up poetry on the blackboard for the knitted student bunnies and teddies to read.. Your magic will come across in whatever forum you choose it to be, you loves are special and I feel very proud to have been a wee part of it. All the best for the future, I hope I can come visit soon, my life has been a whirlwind too, but know that I think of you often. x ruby rose
