Fur Throws & Pillows

Rich in softness and exceptionally cozy, our collection of faux furs gives you that warm and fuzzy feeling. The gorgeous gradient on each silky strand creates the look and feel of genuine fur. Curling up in one of these or throwing one of these beautiful pillows on a sofa or bed would make my Christmas complete this year!

Special Packages

We love to snow & glitter our packages before Santa takes them home to put under the tree. A father and son came in today to Christmas shop and did a great job picking out gifts!!

Silver Turquoise Boxes

Our favorite silver, copper, and turquoise boxes would make a wonderful gift for Christmas! Turquoise stones are all natural and are individually selected for their unique character and beauty. These products are all crafted from German silver: an alloy containing nickel and copper. Each piece is hand made and hand finished. I can see one of our beautiful Navajo pendants in one of these pieces as a special gift. 

Silver Butterfly

She said “Let me try on those beads I never buy any jewelry for myself...why don’t I have any of these silver beads?”

My goodness this large canvas red truck tote is especially cute as a fun and unique gift! Perfect to carry your Christmas goodies in! Tis’ the season!!

Also beautiful wrapped up in one of our pinecone tea towels!

Laura Zindel Pottery

Laura Zindel is an artist and designer who combines her passion for ceramics and naturalist illustration into unique housewares. Her work integrates techniques from the Arts & Crafts movement with modern industrial design practices and decorative arts inspired by the natural world.
A ceramist by training, Laura has always loved to draw with a pencil. Her initial drawings on the surface of clay with a glaze pencil ultimately led her to the transfer process for creating commercial works; her drawings are now silkscreened and printed as enamel transfers. This process also lent itself to repetition, allowing Laura to create exquisite surface patterns from her drawings on a wide variety of homewares.
