Aida Dirse's lovely handmade bowls were front and center in Time Out..they have a "chipped" exterior and the interiors are all different, in abstract spots and dots and lines in many colors. I have 10 new bowls at the shop, many are displayed in the front window. The new bowls range from $45 to $72. If you are not in New York and would like one for a gift, I will take some pictures, just let me know.

Also just in from Lithuania are a few gorgeous ornaments for your tree. Two very different styles from two designers, one has a crystal glaze and is hung on a ribbon, and the other is a white globe, pierced all over (looks like a crumpet to me) with three large gold spots. That description didn't really do it any justice so I'll just have to take pictures of it as well. There are also a few pillow covers in linen and wool for those who don't need the pillow form but want a change around their house.

Erika of Mellifluous Couture brought by a few "live in them everyday" blouses and a super brown jacket with built in tie/scarf and very cool wood buttons. Pippi the mannequin is sporting this right now, along with the Fire First tote bag that I am selling from the website.

If you need to organize your space, I have magnetic strips in bright colors, just put them on your wall and put up all your to-do lists, photos and postcards with their tiny and strong magnets (included). There is also a pocket strip version, also magnetic but with a short pocket to hold taller objects. I think I need to just line my office with these, all the way around the room.

More from our favorites: yummy soap and also a tangerine/lemongrass gift set, boxed and wrapped and ready to go, from The Bubble Roome. Ladder scarves in two new colors and some matching armwarmers from Smith & Hone. And a few new gift tags from yours truly.

Speaking of yours truly, I am trying to finish a scarf I started, it is a mistake rib but the ribs run diagonally. If there are any die-hard knitters out there I could use a hand, I can't remember the pattern.
