The first real snowfall.

16 Days of Noël : Mischievous Gifts

For the stressed type trying to quit smoking — the Peace Maker puzzle, composed of 300 all white pieces printed with tone on tone flags of the world.

The December 2003/January 2004 edition of Marie Claire Maison had a hilarious feature by Charlotte de La Grandière, who (unlike other contributors, who picked lots of nice gift ideas) came up with an anti-gift list instead. As a change from the usual festive stuff, I'll be featuring some of her mischievous suggestions over the next few days. Enjoy!

Bookshelf: Recycled Home

Just looking at these sample photos from Recycled Home by Mark and Sally Bailey makes me want to rush out and buy a copy immediately. In this beautiful book, the Baileys take recycling to a whole new level, finding humble objects and materials, cleaning them up while still respecting their inherent qualities, and then artfully placing them in warm contrast to the clean lines of modern interiors. The gorgeous photography by Debi Treloar makes the smallest corner an inspiration, too.
