Last weekend we popped to Te Aroha. (we went mainly for the 2nd hand shops :-) )
Te Aroha is a really pretty town at the bottom of the highest peak in the Kaimai ranges. How fab would it be to live in a place named after Love?
I really like the buildings and it has pretty gardens by the museum and hot pools.
This one is for sale - isn't it fab!
I you are ever there I really recommend visiting the felt studio, the lady who makes the wonderful creations from New Zealand merino wool also offers lots of different workshops. It's my goal this year to go and do one of her one day workshops.
