The things we’re noting this week all have the spirit of winter festivity, even—especially—amidst ever-shorter days. Take a look:
- This week in Gift Guides, Justine detailed 10 tiny (but no less design forward) stocking stuffers; on Gardenista, Fan rounded up gifts for the nature lover. For decor, seek out classic ornaments with a modern twist; and ready the guest bedroom with pretty bedside water carafes.
- Margot is hoping to stop into Living Abstraction, the exhibit of multimedia artist and early Dadaist Sophie Taueber-Arp, now through March 12th at MoMA.
- London readers: Decorative artist Tess Newall is hosting an ornament-painting workshop tomorrow, December 12th, at Anthropologie Spitalfields; reserve your spot here (and stay tuned for much more of Tess’ work next week).
- Spotted in Vogue: the first winter clothing collection from longtime Remodelista favorite Salter House, featuring rather covetable (and comfortable) blouses and bloomers.
- Save the date: Victoria, BC-based Hold is hosting a solstice market on December 21st; more info here. (See also our original Shopper’s Diary: A “Reverence for the Everyday” at Hold in British Columbia.)
- For utilitarian stocking stuffers: Garrett Wade is offering 50 percent off over 200 old-fashioned tools now through tomorrow (December 12th); shop here.
- A DIY gilded tree, inspired by nature.
- And a weekend project: wrapping paper, dyed with tea.
