Manhattan City Print
We recently added some more incredible map art city prints to the Nest - these new prints include Manhattan and Rome - two of our favourite cities!  These unique prints are of Karen O'Leary's original ink drawings - the originals are hand drawn and and hand cut and they are very, very cool.  You can't help but be drawn to them because they are so unique and there has been such an incredible amount of time required in the process of developing the original art. These map art city prints make the perfect Christmas present so pop on over to our Nest and check out the full range.  We have also added some notecard sets of Barcelona, Berlin, Dublin & Florence, aah, need to do some more travelling soon!

New Artist & Giveaway: Crazy Bird Designs

We have recently added a new range of gorgeous new handmade jewellery and accessories to the store (some of which are pictured here), handcrafted in New Zealand by Bryony from Crazy Bird Designs. One of the things that we really love about the range is that Bryony has a passion for turning recycled New Zealand timber into unique designs. In Bryony's words "As you may know, Christchurch has suffered a series of devastating earthquakes in the last 3 years which has left 80% of the CBD in rubble and caused the loss of thousands of homes around the city. Amongst the casualties have been some of our most beautiful character homes, my own included. I have been sourcing Rimu, Kauri and Sycamore from these demolished houses and love the idea that a small part of some of the beautiful old houses lost down here are at least having a second life!"

How fantastic and unique! To read more about Bryony, click on one of her products and scroll down to the artist story section.
To celebrate the addition of this amazing range we are going to have a giveaway - all you need to do to enter is to leave a comment at this blog telling us which product in the range is your favourite. If you win the giveaway you win your nominated product so choose wisely!
The giveaway closes at midnight on Friday 1st November 2013 and the winner will be drawn at random and announced on this blog on Saturday 2nd November 2013. Enjoy browsing and have a fabulous week!

New Terramundi Money Pots Just Added!

We have just added some gorgeous new Terramundi Pots to our range and have also restocked some of our bestsellers.  These unique, terracotta money pots are hand thrown in Italy and hand painted in London and have been traditionally used in Italy for over 2000 years. The tradition is that once the first coin is dropped the money pot must be fed until full upon which it must be smashed whilst making a wish. As the Terramundi is renowned for bringing good fortune, it is customary to replace the pot and spend the money on good things. What a good idea!!  Let us know what you think of our newbies (pictured) by commenting below.
