Charming Baskets

We just love these Charming Baskets from The Land Of Nod. Reminiscent of those used by traditional snake charmers, they are perfect to sweep loose toys into at the end of the day, and thankfully come without the snakes! Hand made in Senegal, West Africa by Wolof artisans, they are environmentally friendly and made from sustainable materials, making them all the more charming.

Twig Terrariums

Created by a lifelong plant nerd and a skeptical poet, Twig Terrariums are wonderful captured scenes within various glass vessels. Apothecary jars, kitchenware and gumball machines grace shelves, all filled with miniature snapshots into daily life...

Ranging from natural scenes to the whimsical or ironic, Twig Terrariums have been gaining a lot of attention. Earlier this year The New York Botanic Gardens asked them to create an installation called 'Little Landscapes' in their children's garden, and The Museum of Arts and Design featured them during their 'Other Worldly' exhibit. So if you need a lovely little world to get lost in... look no further.
