Brr, Winter really has settled -but how lovely is snuggling under a cozy blanket and watching a movie I love it!! I could hardly believe my eyes when I stumbled upon these gorgeous pins from The Little Drom Store they really are the cutest things ever and I simply had to share them! Now the hard part, choosing which one to get – I’ve a feeling that one really wont be enough, I’m a little in love with the bunny and hopscotch pins, which ones do you love? x
I hope everyone is having an incredibly lovely day so far – I still can’t quite believe how generous all of you are with your support of Made From Scratch! Thank you so very much for helping reach over 5000 Facebook likes, it’s absolutely surreal and I’ll never be able to thank you enough! So to celebrate, I thought that I would share some gorgeous baking products that have been featured in the stunning new issue of Adore Home Magazine! I’ve had the true honour of being able to work along side Loni and help her out with selecting a few lovely products for the issue, it’s almost a dream come true! Be sure to have a peek at this gorgeous magazine while curled up with a warm cup of tea – it’s the perfect treat. x
Happy Monday everyone, I hope you all had a wonderfully lazy weekend. Is anyone else a little excited that the seasons are starting to change, even though we’re having the most wonderful summer ever I’m craving a little Autumn baking and curling up inside for a little bit. I could hardly believe my eyes when I stumbled upon this beautifully styled farm wedding by Ginny Branch, it has everything a party could want, beautiful favors, delicious sweet treats, beautiful flowers and of course the most gorgeous stacked pancake cake ever! I love that there is a perfect mix of pretty pastels and deep jewel tones throughout the whole setting – it’s simply stunning! x

Happy Friday everyone, how lovely are short weeks and long weekends, I think they should be compulsory! Can anyone else believe that it’s already February, how did that happen, although my hubby did remind me that it’s my birthday this month, so that’s very very exciting! I hope that everyone has a fantastic weekend planned and enjoys pouring over this weeks stunning and oh so bright Weekly Roundup from Toodles Noodles – I’m a little smitten with the necklace and boat shoes, they’re the perfect summer accessories! x
What a beautiful summer New Zealand has been experiencing these past few weeks! I don’t think I’ve had this kind of heat and clear blue skies in years – and am loving it!
One of the great things about living in Auckland compared to Wellington is that people love to wear colour – it reminds me of when I moved from San Francisco to Los Angeles. You go from an all black wardrobe to an assortment of brights and patterns - something this designer loves! One can’t help but feel vibrant and happy when surrounded by brights!
A lot of new things have been buzzing in the studio this past week! We released our latest addition to the shop: baking decorations! Here you can find cake and cupcake toppers in all our designs. And don’t forget, just like with any of our work – have something in mind but don’t see it online – let us know and we can custom make it!
We’re also working furisouly away getting ready for the New Zealand Gift and Homeware Fair - our first trade show! Not to mention working on two new products to be released soon and a few markets coming up as well! All to be released in detail soon..!
Now enough talking and onto link sharing:
1. Vibrant streamers and pom poms light up this barn in a heart felt Main wedding.
2. Loving the typography treatment on this poster by Luke Williams.
3. Gluten free has never looked so good - beautiful packaging by Nancy Hope.

Happy Friday everyone – how lovely is it that the sun is shining, it’s so much nicer than cold rain! I’m beyond excited and so flattered to be able to share this stunning styled shoot with you, I love that gold is so popular at the moment, it’s just so pretty and works so beautifully with lovely soft pastels! How absolutely stunning is the soft table setting styled by the enormously talented All the Frills, you would feel oh so special dining at that table then getting to enjoy a few sweet treats from the dessert table by Bluebells Cakery before smashing the living day lights out of gilded piñata - it sounds like the perfect party!! This beautiful shoot was perfectly organised and photographed by the wonderfully talented Ellie from Jel Photography – she also made a little time lapse of the day, it’s so fantastic you have to watch it! I hope everyone has an exciting weekend planned, I’d love to hear what your up to – I’m hosting a delicious baking class tomorrow, then lunching with friends on Sunday – I can’t wait. x
I hope everyone is having a lovely week so far, I can’t believe that the week is almost over, it’s zooming by!
