Flow Hive beehive with honey on tap

What an amazing Australian design by Byron Bay beekeepers (and Father and Son team) Stuart and Cedar Anderson.

Less stress for the bees and incredibly easy for the owner. It's a brilliant way to introduce people to beekeeping, especially for kids.

Cath Young from Bellingen-based My Bearded Pigeon is most well-known for her great photographic animal and map cushions, but I'm really loving her new design - a vintage-style alphabet wall-hanging chart with both letters and numbers. Perfect for a child's study or bedroom!
