It's Favorites Time Again

Some are etsians and some are just super cool things that would be perfect for a gift for a loved one OR a "from Me to Moi" gift for those of you that KNOW you have be EXTRA special but a bit under appreciated this year!


#1 The Prettiest Jump Rope EVER



#2 A beautiful boat to sail away in by Ann Wood
  This is the eleventh in a small series of signed and numbered paper mache sailboats made from recycled cardboard (mostly cereal boxes), newspaper, vintage buttons and found and salvaged fabric. Each boat comes with 2 merry wobbler passengers and a bit of ballast for smooth sailing. Measures approximately 10 X 12 inches.
#3 Meet Me in Paris Bracelet

One of many fantastic designs by BuyMyCrap.etsy.com
You can even order custom designs of ALL of your boyfriends to wear all together or one at a time.


around $48.00








#4 Recycled Pencils by Write with Moxie
In this day and time of ever expanding, there is something very special about putting pencil to paper. The idea of having the ideas and creativity pour out of you in your own handwriting is a beautiful thing that I think should be preserved.

These are the ideas I took into consideration when starting Write with Moxie. By putting our own take on an ordinary pencil, we hope to bring back to art of writing in a modern eco-friendly way.



#5 The Lampshade for the "COOL FRIENDS" house
By designer Kate Boyce
Inspired by a light hearted look at the suburban landscape of Middle-England.
The designs are a combination of photographic imagery with scans of floral fabric from the 70’s and 80’s. The designs are printed with fade resistant inks on a high quality tear-proof paper which allows light to filter through beautifully. Finished with a protective polymer lacquer to deter dust and allow gentle sponge cleaning and topped of with a velvet trim over a professional rolled edge binding.

Large size - 45cm in diameter. 32cm high.







 












#6 Then there is always a great piece of art... It doesn't have to be expensive and it is such a wonderfully personal and can be intimate gift. For example there is "The Butterfly Releaser" by Elle Moss that makes you think and discuss and wonder...








Or one that takes you away from a cold dreary day in the depths of winter and reminds you that summer will arrive again...
It just so happens to be taken by me. It's ok to like your own work sometimes! It's titled Escape and can take you to a white sandy beach in the Bahamas if you squint just right.




So enjoy these few trinkets that will make your holidays brighter and have a wonderful weekend!
