Unique and Chic

Boutiques are the cure for the ordinary

One of the things that is so special about boutiques is that they offer a departure from mass production. They are treasure troves of beautifully crafted items that your friends and family will just adore. Here I’ve put together a smattering of items from LEIF.com for holiday. LEIF is out of Brooklyn, NY and has crafted a beautifully curated site with artisan items for your home, table and jewel box. Just look at these cheerful cups, bracelets and serving spoons — and the vibrant Pantone milk pitcher is perfect for the creative in your life. Also, I’ve never seen a terrarium gardening set before – how cool.

– On Another Note –

Even though we are in holiday mode with lots to do and friends to visit, sometimes we get thrown a curve-ball during this festive season. On a personal note, I have been behind on my blog postings. We had to say goodbye to our dog last week and the sadness still washes over me daily. You’ve probably had to go through this yourself and know how hard the whole thing is. If I post less frequently you’ll know why, and if I suddenly post a lot, it’s probably because I’m trying to distract myself. Anyhow, grief is a odd thing and there’s no rhyme or reason to how each day will go.

Hugs to you,
