Put your own stamp on gift-giving

The Team from Resene ColorShop Hastings

Remember potato printing? Turns out it’s not just for the kids. We love this printing idea, creating a geometric pattern using the humble potato and Resene testpots.

We’ve printed ours onto linen to wrap around pot plants, a simple yet thoughtful gift that friends and family will love.

Make the most of this weekend with this easy step by step project idea from Resene.

Te Mata Rd protest

Julie Neighbourly Lead from Havelock North

Every day I drive past the former proposed site for the cell tower and I feel it’s very kind of the current owners to want to lower the property values by making the area look like an LA slum. It’ll make it easier and cheaper for first home buyers when you sell up.

But really folks, isn’t it about time to remove the graffiti sheets and get on with life? They are attracting taggers to the area, which will then attract other criminal elements.

The electoral candidate hoardings are a distracting eyesore enough, without adding to the visual pollution, and unwanted attention.

Like it or not, you’ve made the neighbourhood look like areas you wouldn’t drive through with the doors unlocked.

Peppertree Luxury Accommodation FOR SALE!

New Zealand Sotheby's International Realty

This boutique hotel offers a new owner the opportunity to combine a healthy and diverse lifestyle with an interesting and profitable business which naturally scales down during winter, allowing for a holiday.

Each of the five beautifully appointed suites has been subtly themed, providing individual charm as well as comfort. In the heart of the lodge is a spacious, recently renovated farmhouse kitchen enjoying garden and orchard views. A large woodburner with wetback heats the water for a series of radiators around the house, ensuring year-round warmth.

Organically managed, the four-hectare property provides the ability to live from the land with honey, fruit trees, berry patches, vegetable gardens, olives and grazing for sheep, cattle and horses. The small Chardonnay vineyard with a careful selection of clones produces a succulent house wine thoroughly enjoyed by guests from all around the world.

A range of useful ancillary sheds and buildings offers space for projects, hobbies, storage and accommodation for staff. Other facilities on the property include a petanque court, croquet lawn and small gymnasium overlooking the swimming pool.

This extraordinarily diverse and unique lifestyle is ideally located on State Highway One, less than a five-minute drive from central Blenheim and 15 minutes from numerous winery cellar doors, restaurants and the airport.
