It is that time of year again...Christmas shopping! If you are anything like me, you spend all year thinking of things you'd love for a Christmas or Birthday gift, and then when asked, those ideas completely escape you.
Here are the things i've picked out that i think would make fabulous gifts for moi, and maybe you or that someone special in your life.
HENARE; humble and handmade.
Henare has a gorgeous collection of handmade jewellery using materials such as copper, silver, quartz, garnet, and onyx to name a few. I recently spoilt myself with a copper and black smokey quartz necklace, similar to this silver version.
GALAXY CUSHION COVER's by a Tea with the Queen!
Our very own metallic cushion covers in rich Gold, matt Black and a steely Lavender. Head over to our Storeto have a look at the GALAXY collection.
A$45 (cover only)
Culottes are IN.
There are lots to choose from, but these Camilla and Marc Equilibrium Culottes, are tailored into a delicate silhoulette. The likes of Zara have white culottes this season too, but when you compare a pair of these C&M's to Zara, the shape and fit of these are worthy of a special treat.
a WEAVED sole.
I adore these Briarwood Andie Fern lace-ups. Briarwood is a NZ brand traditionally known for its gorgeous printed leather bags and wallets. This print is exclusive to Briarwood, and their is a floral print available too.
Kate Sylvester's SYLVESTER range includes this cute Shaggy Skirt in Vanilla or Black this season. I LOVE for casual weekend wear, work, or evening.
Golden beaked SWANS.
Kate Sylvester's Homeware range is small but has some really classic pieces. These Swans with hand painted golden beaks are the most calmingly, beautiful wee things. They come in Ivory, Black, Eggshell blue, and Blush.
Now i know this is an expensive candle, but these Piero Fornasetti candles are art in a new medium sold by WORLD Brand. Piero died in 1988, and his son, Barnaba, is adapting his 20th Century decorative art forms which spanned painting, sculpture, interior design and book printing, into new, modern works.
There are a number of variant styles to chose from in the candle collection. This one pictured here is the Fornasetti FLORA FLORA candle which is a brand new scent and design.
Penny Farthing Design House in Balmain, Sydney, sells a huge range of beautiful, framed prints that celebrate artists, unknown, emerging and established. They mostly range in price from $500 - $800 and some are huge pieces that really make a statement.
