Dispatches from the World of Design

 Okay I lifted the title of this post from the bloggers over at the New York International Gift Fair, because, well because I think it just sounded like it had so much authority.  And because I was just in New York at the show and wanted to share with you some photos of my favorite finds.  I couldn't be happier about the trend towards
earthy and organic because it is and always has been what we're about at Passionflower.

 Here's a great piece of jewelry I saw using shed antler that's been carved into a chain. 
Wow, how does he do that?

 The whole natural curiosities craze is going to be with us for a while.  For me, it's never gone out of style.

And then down every aisle in just about every nook and cranny were terrariums and succulents and glass.  Maybe I'm just seeing what I want to see, but I have to say, I'm so glad those days of high gloss lacquer and mod squad furnishings are over.

  1. I did see this glass artist work at the NYC IGS- I about died. It was, I think the prettiest things there. A bit spendy, but wow, it blew my socks off- did you see the things that she had in tubes of glass, that were sealed on both ends? Those were fantastic.

    It's a fun time for retailers- earthy, organic, natural history and curiosities are all "in" right now...
    (to me they have always been in!)

    Love your blog,
