Lace up for summer fun

The Team from Resene ColorShop Henderson

Who wouldn’t want to show up to play in flash shoes like these? Customise a fresh pair of footwear or fancy up some old favourites – while covering up scuff marks – with nothing more than a few Resene testpots, artist’s brushes and a bit of good quality masking tape.

Who wouldn’t want to show up to play in flash shoes like these? Customise a fresh pair of footwear or fancy up some old favourites – while covering up scuff marks – with nothing more than a few Resene testpots, artist’s brushes and a bit of good quality masking tape.

If your kids are little, you can help mask off any of the harder parts – such as around the soles – that you want to keep paint off of and remove laces, if there are any. You can even use this idea to makeover adult shoes that never get worn because the colour doesn’t go with anything.

Make the most of this weekend with this easy step by step project idea from Resene.

Cars tampered with

Kia ora neighbourly neighbours

Yesterday I noticed something different about my car - some pesky basket has tampered with my car firstly removed 1 tyre middle cap hub cap, secondly tried and failed with a 2nd one, the caps on at least 2 of my tyres were loose (as I checked one I noticed it had been unscrewed so I checked the others) and where one of the hub cap mid caps were removed a head bolt has been removed. I’m guessing why the other caps were not touched because who ever was doing the deed was spooked / disturbed by something.

I’ve reported it but officially that’s all I can do really as nothing was seen by anyone, so now I’m putting it up on here to let neighbours know and to keep aware of what’s going on in our neighbourly circle community.

We have lived in this little area for a few long years and have never had anything like this happen before, so now I’m keeping watch getting no sleep hoping to catch some bas-terd in action.

Hard to sleep when you know your property has been tampered with.

Hi neighbours! At Cooper's Pet Kitchen our food is free of cheap fillers like grains, corn, soy & wheat... but what does that really mean?

It means there’s more protein-packed nutrition in every bite. We’re big believers in quality over quantity so while our food may be a little more expensive than some, its nutrient density makes for smaller portions with more readily absorbable nutrients.

Get more bang for your dog’s bite with 50% OFF your first order with code NEIGHBOURLY.

This also means a decrease in what comes out the other end... less 'picking up' what they’re 'putting down' at the dog park if you catch our drift.
