The reason for the season

If, like me you spent today trying to do all of your Xmas shopping, you're probably feeling a little frazzled, you might need something to take the edge off, help you relax and unwind, I have just the site for you! Pampered puppy has more pictures of confused pugs than you could poke a bone at.
Remember, puppies are the reason for the season!

We love Frankie magazine, I was lucky enough to get a subscription for xmas last year, maybe I'll get another one this year... ;) Aren't these new wallpapers great? New on the Frankie website, they can be found here.

oh oh & oh!

I found these great pictures on flickr, they are from the Style files blog, take a look!
I loooove the wallpapers, they're coming in handy for a mix cd I'm about to make as a cheap (and creative) xmas gift. Yeah!

Couldn't have said it better myself

We were super excited to be on in October, thanks to the lovely Katie May.


Welcome! Let us introduce ourselves...
We are a small boutique style shop in Brooklyn, Wellington (New Zealand). We peeled the newspaper off our front windows to a community of ever increasingly anxious Brooklynites on September 15th, 2007.
We are a kick ass Mother daughter duo who were both frustrated with not being able to devote all our time to creative projects, so we decided to create a platform to feed our creative desires.
I, Ginny trained in painting at Wintec in Hamilton & AUT in Auckland and have had various retail & Visual merchandising experience in Homewares & Frances (my Mum) was an Optometrist. (But much too creative for that profession if you ask me).
So out of our frustration, experience, passion, blood & sweat (no tears) grew Swonderful, an Emporium of sorts, stocking- Papercup (our own label- tees, bags, purses, frocks, tops, toys & jewellery),
Lily Rosemary & the Jack of Hearts, Secret Squirrel, Lady Luck Rules OK, Nut & Bee, cute toys from Geek Freeks & Inner Beasties, Rachel Carley Ceramics, Pop Ink & Magic Jelly.
We hope you like our blog. We aim to update very frequently, watch this space!
