In my garden:as summer's hint begins; as the Buxus starts to get its first cut, as the pleached Lime trees develop their lovely green shield, as the parterre beds begin to fill out, and colours brighten; it's a beautiful time of year! I've raked the lime chip paths, making them look tidier and make a delicious crunchy noise as newly walked upon. It holds the promise of much more to come...🍃💚💜💚🍃 #buxusballs #buxussempervirens #buxusinpots #buxusinmygarden #oamarustoneball #oamarustone #limechippaths #oldfashionedflowers #cottagegardenflowers #inmycitygarden #inmyheritagestylegarden #inmyenglishstylegarden #newzealandgarden #nzgarden #dunedingarden #renfrewgarden

The owners of this home had driven past it many times and said, if it ever comes on the market we will buy it. And so it happened... Designed by Sean Turner in Levin, this home in Ōhau is the definition of elegance 😍😍😍.

"The relationships are more real, more immediate, and more meaningful. Every made object carries a story, and those stories have more relevance when they are local."⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Motueka-based sculptor Nick Duval Smith likes clean lines, textural contrasts, and art that can be played with - and reckons that jewellery, like sculpture, can carry narrative content, through symbols and pictures.

GSAT part 4. Like an Italian village, the collection of forms split over varying levels is a constant journey of discovery. The spaces between delight and become continuations of the spaces within. Opposing materials define spaces yet engage in a complementary composition of colour and texture. The home is sizeable but intimate and comfortably livable.

2019 New Zealand trip🇳🇿 oamaru ダニーデンからバスで3時間進み、真っ白な天然石オアマルストーンできた建物がまぶしくて、海が透き通るオアマルへ。 はっきり行って田舎で15時にはお店が閉まっちゃう観光地としてマニアックな街! 1日目は海沿いを散策して、ペンギンのコロニーを発見🐧ベビー達がたまらなく可愛かった💞 その端っこに唯一(?)遅くまで営業しているシーフードレストランを見つけて入ったんだけど、そこのシーフードプラッターが新鮮でボリュームmaxですごく美味しい🐠 ※日本人は珍しいみたいでこのエリアにいた時に1番視線を感じたよ😲 翌日はホワイトストーンチーズ工場に行ったんだけど、その時乗ったタクシーが唯一カードが使えなくて、換金してなかった私達は慌てて説明したんだけど、運転手さんは怒って帰っちゃったように見えたの。 それで、タクシーを呼んだホテルに事情を話して代金に上乗せで払おうとしたらね、『安すぎるからお代は結構!旅を楽しんで😉』って運転手さんが言ってたから大丈夫ってホテルから。 どんだけ男前なのアレックス🎅 老人多めのこの街も人情に溢れてる🥺 もちろんチーズは美味しくて、フェタとか珍しいの沢山試せた🧀 その後行ったメインストリートがヨーロッパに来たかと錯覚する美しさでね、その先にあるcasa mia ってカフェがセンス良くてツボ過ぎて❣️ 田舎で遊ぶところはなぁーんにも無さそうなんだけど、お店はハイセンスな所が沢山あって、ここもすごく好きになりました🥰 #oamaru #oamarustone #whitestonecheese #nz #newzealand #lovelygreennewzealand #ecofriendly #ecolifestyle

The boss phoned this morning... Said, low key like... "have you got a minute to come and see what Dustin has done with Zeda (the saw?) “ What!!!!!!!!!! Gorgeous silver lines! When starting at the quarry, the first architect I met with was local Ōamaru architect Ian Perry who said, if you could somehow show off those beautiful lines that appear randomly and somehow continue them across a whole wall, it would showcase the stone in an even more unique way.... Tick! These are light weight slips that can be adhered over a concrete or other substrate.

Since the the beginning of August this year, the team have been digging, scraping, shifting soil and clay in the new area of the quarry. Today, lines are marked out for the first blocks to be cut from the new quarry floor. Stay tuned, in only another couple of weeks we'll have the first block cut.

In the weekend I attended the most beautiful wedding of a dear friend of mine. A few weeks ago she approached me regarding table settings as she wanted natural and together we came up with these wee lovelies for her table numbers. These represent her heritage, new beginnings, love and family. Afterwards these would be gifts to those who were part of the wedding and her and her husband's way of saying thank you. Each one has the date engraved on the bottom and the table number can be removed. I feel very privileged to have carved these for her and her husband. ❤Can you spot the very special one for the children's table! If you love this idea for your wedding feel free to send me a message💞 #sinclaircreations #oamarustone #dunedin #hearts #weddinggiftsidea #weddingtabledecor #love

Architects seek the best products to turn their designs into reality. Limestone has been used throughout history and all around the world in iconic structures, like the Pentagon, the Empire State Building. In NZ we have many iconic Ōamaru stone churches, schools and other public buildings. Choosing the aesthetically appealing, durable and cost-effective Ōamaru stone puts your project in good company.

An amateur sealed this stone cladding. The result was over spill on the windows and roller spill all over the limestone. It's disappointing to see this unprofessional work behaviour.
