holiday gift idea: for the home (encore)…
Posted in christmas ideas, handmade December 8th, 2009 by pia


I nearly left out this gorgeous little fella. It is a plant fibre & skeleton leaf lantern, made by pacha design in the UK (Welcombe), £15  each. Pacha design is also having their first xmas open studio this coming weekend. Among other things there will be chopping boards, leaf lanterns, clocks, and mirrors for sale and you can munch on snowflake biscuits & mince pies, and sip mulled wine while you buy handmade gifts. miam.

PS I can’t decide what to post next – gifts for gals, gifts for guys, or gifts for kids? you choose…

    Pia, I would love to see your ideas regarding gifts for guys,
    Most of the time it is tricky to find something intresting for them)).
    Many thanks!

    Kids, please, Pia! At the difficult age of 10, par exemple. I know, it’s not exactly your speciality…

    thankyou pia! for including our leaf lanterns in your gift guide – we were thrilled when we saw it! you always choose lovely things so we are very flattered. we will let you know how our xmas open studio goes, fingers crossed it will be a nice fresh sunny winter weekend and not an awful rainy & windy one like it has been lately. (shame that you are a bit too far to pop in for the snowflake biscuits and mulled wine).

    thanks again,

    sammy & glenn
