The NZ House & Garden House Tours are landing in the Bay of Islands on Friday 14th of February! With just 2 weeks to go we are looking for fantastic volunteers willing to help for half a day, all in support of the Breast Cancer Foundation NZ.
As a thank you for your time and assistance, you will be provided with a complimentary ticket to spend a half-day exploring the exquisite homes and gardens on the tour. Interested? Phone us on 0508 105 105 or email email@example.com.
Has anyone ever seen something like the image below in an older Kiwi home? Does anyone remember them from their childhood? These strange slots allowed you to rid yourself of an old razor and never think of it again...but it also meant, years down the track, that someone renovating would be in for a nasty, rusty surprise.
I'm certain I've seen something like this here in Aotearoa-NZ, but can't for the life of me recall where. It was in the back of the medicine cupboard. Let us know if you've seen, had - or have - one in your home.
We love how creative some people are with their plant giving! This is for goodie bags for a 7 year olds party but we reckon you could borrow this wonderful idea for the Neighbours Day Aotearoa Great Plant Swap!
What a lovely gift to get and it's not just kids who love sunflowers.
ADDED BONUS: if you give your neighbours sunflower seeds you would get to enjoy their beautiful flowers too!

How consistent are you with the COVID Tracer App?
Several businesses and other industries have asked consumers to continue using the Ministry of Health's COVID Tracer App as the number of QR code scans drops off over the summer months.
The Ministry of Health reported that national scans on January 19 were down to around 640,400. Scans peaked between September 4 and 5 where over 2.5 million scans were registered.
With more contagious strains of Covid-19 being detected in managed isolation facilities, District Health Boards across the country are encouraging business owners to get their patrons to sign in in order to maintain their ability to contract trace in the event of a community outbreak.
