I Recommend for Me

Over the last few weeks I've been doing some recommendations of great gifts for children in your life. Today I thought I'd throw it out to the adults!

I often mention the website felt to people and so many haven't heard of it. So as my personal campaign to raise awareness for non-landfill, artisan, NZ made, quality (you get the general feeling right?)......choices for gifts I am sending you to my recommendations for myself!

Turquoise Green Chrysanthemum Stud Earrings
Little bird earrings in silver
Tree and little bird necklace
Stripey Swan
Women's Crocheted House Shoes in Red & Pink, Mary Jane, House Slippers, Slipper Socks
new shores
peacock instinct - an archival quality print
Bicycle papercut  Vintage Pattern/Black
100% Merino Wool Wrist Warmers!!!
measuring tape headband with sewing notions
Lombard - Art Deco Style Cloche Hat - choice of colours
Love birds and baby necklace
clematis earrings
lily earrings
Design your own 4 element word  periodic table brooch
Flying Kereru Brooch
Recycled wool and tatting brooch
Little red brooch
Red Tights Pendant
Unique And Whimsical Necklace - Pink Birdcage
Vroom Vroom Pendant

I had a browse the other night and I came up with this wonderful selection of lovely things - beginning at $5! and this really is just a tiny example of some of the cool things that are there - I spent a bit of time in the jewellry department but there is so much more than that!

So if you have a special person you need to buy a gift for in NZ can I recommend this wonderful website? It is the brain-child of a fellow Christchurch woman Lucy Arnold - whom I have met a few times. She is lovely and talented and not at all in your face - just quietly getting on with providing a wonderful place for kiwi's to buy beautiful things.

This Christmas if you can't make your own you can still give handmade......

Oh I do love Felt! All of these things are beautiful! I think nap time today might see me browsing through the Felt 'shelves' for a few good Christmas gifts!

Oh I have spent many a happy hour on Felt compiling my birthday and Christmas wish lists - I have my husband well trained and he knows my log in details....I keep forgetting to mention to overseas people that this is a wonderful tool for buying local and saves on massive international postage and wondering if it will arrive on time!
