There's been a bit of a major conflagration at our place this week, in more ways than one. Just down the road a fruit packaging place went up in 20 metre flames only a couple of blocks from where we live. The spectacle could be seen from all around Hawke's Bay and drew rubber neckers from everywhere. It's a strange old pull that one...couldn't help ourselves...we just had to take a walk down the road & see too...the drama unfolding in our neighbourhood. Fascination, awe, gratitude for a vast & courageous fire crew.
We met throngs of people in their pyjamas standing at the gate, on the footpath or clambering on the roof to take a better look.
More flame colours.
There's just something about red hearts don't you think?

Just in case you're local I thought I'd let you know about an upcoming bazaar (love that word!)
Coco and Co. is a new shop in Market Street run by Jo & Jess of Fruit Bowl Craft Jam fame..you can see some great pictures of the shop here at Sweet Mary.
The duo's philosophy runs like this: "The crazy lovechild of Jo Pearson and Jess Soutar Barron, Coco and Co. has grown out of a passion for hand-made, design led, found, upcycled and recycled objects - the beautiful, the useful, the interesting, the obscure, the nostalgic, and sometimes - given the right light - the grotesque.... CoCo and Co is a collaboration, a curated collection, an open work room & a sometime shop." marvelous!
Chances are my week may be a little bazaar.
Hope yours is fabulous & colour-full!
