No 3 Balaclava Street

A Little Bird Told Me – this is a lovely designer homeware, clothing and accessories shop that used to be housed in a church building in Wyndham. Some time ago I noticed that the church property was advertised for sale. When we were in town the other day, we popped down Balaclava Street to see the shop owner’s home (where she also developed a very fine garden). Lo and behold, we found she now has a shop on her property next to her home. Great! By the way this is the last Wyndham post.

Now over to the delightful house and garden, three photos taken by Liz. The bushes along the front fence are roses with colourful rosehips (its autumn in New Zealand).

      1. Sadly, no. I do know people who have moved there, and it sounds like a wonderful place, without the harsh winters of Canada’s prairies. I haven’t had the opportunity for much travelling, and I suspect I never will, but Canada’s a great place too.
