Happy Halloween Art

Heidi from Northland

I have created this Halloween art work just in time for halloween!

$25 for an 8" by 10" or A4 print or $45 for an 11" by 14" or A3 print (unframed). I spent several days and nights hand drawing this art work as well as editing it - that in itself took approximately 11 hours. … View more
I have created this Halloween art work just in time for halloween!

$25 for an 8" by 10" or A4 print or $45 for an 11" by 14" or A3 print (unframed). I spent several days and nights hand drawing this art work as well as editing it - that in itself took approximately 11 hours. So I have priced this art work a little higher than my other mandalas as so much TLC was put in to it.

Feel free to follow my art progress on Instagram @Nobel.Soul or on my Facebook page: Nobel Soul Art. I aso sell a lot of my art work as PDF files so you can print them at home yourself if preferred.

This halloween print will only be available made to order but you can purchase PDF files of other work at: Etsy.com/shop/NobelSoulArt

Have a safe and happy halloween everyone!

Price: $25

Wee-hoo bike trailer. Used, but solid and nowhere near used up! Comes with attachment bits for 2 bikes to easily swap. Easy access in Wadestown. Thinking $250-260 but will consider reasonable offers.

Very stable, tracks and turns well. Suitable for ages 2-9 according to the website. Adjustable seat position. Child sits (buckled in) and can pedal if they are big enough and of age.

We found the kids liked it more than being closed up in a trailer as they could participate in the biking. Pic is actual photo of ours in use in Hutt River Trail. Capable on path, pavement, gravel, rock (To lighthouse, Hutt river trail, you name it, we even did Otago trail with it)

After 20 pleasurable years, the owners of The Peppertree are now ready to move on. They want a sale and have instructed us to present all offers.

Beginning life as a renowned restaurant and currently operating very successfully as boutique accommodation, The Peppertree works very well as a function centre and would also make a superb cellar door. Located with State Highway frontage close to Blenheim and situated on the soon to open Picton to Kaikoura cycleway, it is ideally positioned to cash in on Marlborough’s growing tourism industry.

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

Encompassing four hectares and featuring organically managed vineyard and gardens, fruit trees, berry patches, olives and grazing for sheep, cattle, and horses, The Peppertree is close to being self-sufficient. The extra land also offers an opportunity for future expansion and development.

The rateable value for land and improvements is $1,520,000.
All offers requested to be received by 4 pm Wednesday 27 November 2019.

For more information or an appointment to view, please contact Michal or Tim.

Trick or treating: Love it or hate it

Mikaela Wilkes Reporter from Homed

Hey neighbours,
Halloween is fast approaching. Some Kiwis think it's great fun and go all out with decorations and lollies. Others just want to shut their doors and be left alone, leave it to the Americans.

Do you celebrate Halloween at your house? Why or why not?

Hey neighbours,
Halloween is fast approaching. Some Kiwis think it's great fun and go all out with decorations and lollies. Others just want to shut their doors and be left alone, leave it to the Americans.

Do you celebrate Halloween at your house? Why or why not?
And If you don't like trick or treating, how do you make it clear your house is a no-go zone?

We're keen to talk to some people who feel strongly about Halloween one way or the other. If you have thoughts to share, please email homed@stuff.co.nz and we'll be in touch.

Here it is, the grand finale. Experience the energy of some of the capital’s best poets as they battle it out to be the new Wellington Poetry Slam Champion!


Date: Saturday 2 November| Time: 7:00 pm to 1:00 pm | Cost $15 waged - $10 unwaged | Venue: Taiwhanaga Kahau — Auditorium lower ground floor


It’s all been building up to this. Across the year, Motif Poetry and Poetry in Motion have been running slams, now the winners will come together and battle it out to be Wellington’s 2019 Poetry Slam Champion.

Poetry Slam is the competitive format taking the world by storm. A high energy, enthralling event where performance poets are judged by random members of the audience in an arbitrary but totally engaging way.

Since 2011, many of Greater Wellington’s finest performance poets have competed and this year’s slams have been no different. Sold out events, packed open mics and searing hot verse screams out that poetry is alive and kicking in the capital.
The winners will travel to Christchurch in November to compete for the title of New Zealand Slam Champ, as well as a guest spot at Verb Festival Poetry Showcase.
Be quick, this event always sells out! Come prepared for a CASH ONLY bar.
-
Part of the Festival of Slam Wellington. A handful of spoken word and poetry groups in Wellington have banded together to create a day of poetry facilitation, workshops and events.


Motif Poetry and Poetry in Motion are two of Wellington’s spoken word poetry communities, they run slams, open mics, workshops, host local and travelling poets, and manage the annual Wellington slam.


NOTE: the National Library is fully wheelchair accessible. Please see the following page to download an accessibility map for the venue: natlib.govt.nz...
