Confession of an addict...

I have a confession....I am addicted to Pinterest!  On the upside. I know of around 5 million other people who also share the same addiction.  So what is it about this social media website that differs from anything else?  It's the fact that Pinterest is a pinboard style photo sharing website that allows you to create and manage theme-based image collections that represent you and or your business.  You can browse other peoples pinboards for images, re-pin their images to your board or simply 'like' images.  It also connects you to a community of people who share similar ideas and interests.  The best part though is all pins link back to their source giving credit where credit is due.

Following is a sample of some of my very favourite pins.  To view my entire board, simply click onto my facebook logo which will also link you directly to my pinterest page too.

A visual feast for the eyes

Escapism at its best...something we all need to take time out to do occasionally

This picture pretty much sums up my favourite interior style - French Nordic.  Sourced from an amazing site which I discovered on pinterest recently....Ágústas Vintage
This delightful image captured everyone's imagination when I posted it on my facebook page.  Oh the stories this gorgeous old French chateau could tell.  
and finally...this picture spoke a thousand words when I used it on my Facebook page to advise fans I was winging my way over to Sydney to help my daughter select her Wedding Gown

New Kid On The Block

I've been toying with the idea of relocating my store to the other side....and as of this week that is now a reality.  I've moved out of my sleepy little hollow in Milford and burst into the character upmarket suburb of Herne Bay bordering on Ponsonby.  My new premise is called 'Letham Cottage' an historical iconic building front dating from the early 1900's.  Originally a gallery for a number of years and now transformed into the home of Pure Provenance.

And here we are!

Following is a small snippet of inventory on offer and please remember, these items are unique one-off's that have survived the ravages of time, lovingly sourced by moi and awaiting their respective new owners accordingly.

Who doesn't love retro french alarm clocks and coronation mugs
