Herriott Grace


I know i write about them regularly...
All self made, hand made, made with lovvve and they really stick to their on taste...
Natural materials, beautiful pictures and everything is always sold out in one day...haha
Terrific...you can read their story here..
Herriott Grace is a venture of father and daughter, and this is their story. Lance and Nikole Herriott live 3400 kilometers apart: his workshop is in Victoria, British Columbia, and her studio is in Toronto, Ontario. When she first made her home more than halfway across the country, they started to send packages back and forth. In some of those packages, Lance began to include his own hand carved spoons. He had been collecting wood since the early seventies, and used his best pieces for these gifts. Nikole loved them; their balance and shape, the pieces were made with unmistakable care. She knew they were something special. One day it dawned on her that others might appreciate her father’s talent as she did, so Nikole asked if he would ever want to share his work. Lance took a few days to think about it. And, after some convincing, he agreed to her plan, but only with people that understood and cared about the time and effort spent on each piece. She told him, “Leave it to me, I know just the sort.” And with that, Herriott Grace was born. In the three years since, their small shop has grown to selling an array of hand carved and hand turned wooden objects, including spoons, bowls, pedestals, candy dishes, serving boards, rolling pins, plates and mortar and pestle sets. All are one of a kind and made entirely of salvaged, chemical-free wood, ranging in type, age, and origin. None are exactly the same, and thus none are perfect. But the slight imperfections are an effect of the handmade quality. They’ve also introduced a select line of exclusive porcelain dishware. The ceramic pieces are cast in small runs, and boast the rustic, tactile beauty for which their brand is known. They also make, by hand, kitchen linens, cake flags, birthday candles, beeswax salve and cookie cutters. Lance still lives in Victoria, and still sends packages to Nikole in Toronto. Now, she styles and photographs those pieces he sends, and together they are Herriott Grace.

I hate Perfume


Perfume is a veil that reveals the soul, perfume is the fanfare of your individuality sounding differently to everyone who listens...I hate perfume owner, Christopher, encourages you to be yourself, expand yourself and please yourself...allow yourself the luxury of your own vision.
Perfume is an adventure, go explore...
Tons of choices on his website...go explore...think inside the box...

PERFUME IS A SIGNPOST TO OUR TRUE SELVES – A DIFFERENT JOURNEY FOR THE BRAVE TO TRAVEL 
PERFUME IS AN ART THAT SHOWS US WHO WE CAN BE IF WE DARE – AN INVISIBLE PORTRAIT OF WHO WE ARE 
PERFUME IS DISCOVERED FULLY ONLY BY OUR LOVERS WHEN WE ARE TOGETHER - NAKED

Thunderpants NZ

Womens Hipster - the Original comfy undies that don't go up your bum....in a Hipster. Cut to fit and built to last. Haha that won't go in your bum...lovvv it...These Thunderpants are hand printed in their workroom on a small 'Old School' manual printing table. Every pair is different and some have a little more ink, some have a little less ink, some have marks and the odd tiny blob or speckle here and there. These differences are what make hand printing so much more personal and special, no-one will have another pair like yours ! And no one is the same....Let's celebrate the wabi sabi of these undies, from New Zealand...where else...Vive la difference...the prints are sooooooo cool....
