  1. Hi Lee, just back from Oz and had the chance to go to the Pottery Barn store in Bondi Junction - total lust. Brought one of those tin bottle holders, very frenchy, now to style it.
    They said that in a year they might ship to NZ

    1. Glad you had a nice break, I actually buy from Pottery Barn on line, the USA store, I have bought bed linen but the downfall is the shipping costs which are high. They don't ship all things to NZ though mainly unbreakable items, it will tell you when you click on the item after choosing NZ as your shipping option. You can click on the country and it will show costs in NZ dollars or whatever country you choose. I am not quite sure which bottle holder you mean but using half size Perrier water bottles might look quite good. I have seen them in a tin bucket on their website and they look great.

      Lee :)
