Season's Greetings

 

After leaving Brisbane, Queensland and a pretty steady all-year-round temperature, it is so refreshing to enjoy all four seasons at our current high-altitude location.

 

 

As clichéd as it sounds, nature provides us with so much inspiration and wonderment, even on the coldest and windiest of days.

Alphabetical order.

A recent order for a set of Personalised Hardwood Bookends finally included a letter “Z”. Do you know what this means?

Well, it means that we have now possibly* made every letter of the alphabet as a monogrammed heirloom gift!!! Hooray!!

 Personalised Love Birds Serving Board

The most recent addition to our range, the “Love Birds Serving Board” is a personalised platter, which allows the “hosts with the most” to celebrate their love in the best way - through the sharing of gourmet delights with friends and family. 
After all, it doesn’t get much better than enjoying simple pleasures with the ones you love.


Mum's the word.

We got a bit sentimental recently when photographing images for our new Personalised Wooden Keepsake.  This gift idea was created as a more feminine alternative to our Anchor Keepsake memento.
We gathered some props for the shoot and ended up using a tea cup and saucer given to us by one of our grandmothers, pastries lovingly baked by one mum and a beautiful old polaroid of our other mum.
