Ladybird....Ladybird.....Fly away home.......











I think I could safely say 
we all have owned a
'Ladybird' 
book
 as children.

Perfect reading for little minds and 
as I found out today for this
bigger mind.....
Of course this was made all the better
by reading....
'Shopping with Mother'
 in a dress
covered in 
Ladybirds!!!

We have been lucky enough to buy
a collection of these iconic books.
They are going into the shop
tomorrow and a big bunch
will be with me this weekend
at the 

Come see me there
or 
Warren
at 
Squirrels HQ.

A favourite little post......













Sorry guys another 
'Squirrels' at the beach post.

Yip after nearly seven
years of posting here, we seem
to escape to the beach a lot.

Yesterday on a grey old day
we did some beach combing
 collecting pine-cones &  
driftwood.

As well as...

 Watching 
the ebb & flow
of the sea,
breathing, 
being present in our bodies
calming our inner voice and 
leaving the heaviness of life for 
a moment.

That is the
gift
the sea gives you.

Little Gatherer Apron.........












We are so excited to be showing you these
beautiful dressmaker made aprons.

It has been a lovely collaboration with my dear friend
to make a cross over apron in a style I love, 
using beautiful vintage fabrics.

Look at this stunning
   Sage green Sanderson Rose fabric.....
Each apron is a one of a kind and because 
we really are just dipping our little
furry toes in the water,
we only have three available at this stage.

 You can now purchase direct 
from us online
or pop in and see us
this weekend at our Dunedin based
Squirrel HQ.

Can it be????
















Do you sometimes look at the
calendar and say to yourself.....
Can it be already??

The big move to Dunedin took place
a year ago....
Wow...that went fast.
We opened the studio in Jutland street
6 months ago as
'Squirrels HQ'
and as always have been
completely humbled by the
wonderful vintage lovers who have come to see us.
We are busy little squirrels each week
prepping stock and setting the stage for
our weekend visitors,
also listing vintage pieces on 
Trade Me.


'Squirrels HQ'
Open:
Saturday and Sunday
11am-3pm.
Jutland street
Dunedin

The magic of a castle......














Last week we went off on an adventure
to Christchurch, to buy some 
great vintage treasures to bring
back to 'Squirrels HQ'.

With a car full of vintage finds,
we left one little gap to pop in some
pretty dried flowers from 
Riverstone Kitchen near Oamaru 
for Ayla at Twigs N Twine, 
it was just lovely.

Walking around the amazing
productive garden was a real treat
and very inspiring.

Of course having a magical
castle in the background also
adds to this wonderful
experience.

Next time we are travelling we
hope to stop for lunch.
