Christmas Crockery

These gorgeous pieces are by US designer Rosanna Bowles. Rosanna creates several Christmas crockery lines each year & always outdoes herself. How pretty are the vintage-themed designs?

Cool Christmas Pudding

'Jme' is the name of chef Jamie Oliver's signature homeware & foodstuffs collection. I really like the graphic design on his new Xmas pudding box, released a couple of weeks ago. They sadly don't ship to Australia, but do ship to the US & Europe for our readers on the other side of the world!

Jamie & Hugh's Xmas Cooking Show

UK chefs Jamie Oliver & Hugh Fearneley-Whittingstall are headlining this years 'Taste of Christmas' foodie festival in London in December. What a great line-up! Speaking of Jamie Oliver, here's a hilarious clip from a Christmas episode of Jamie @ Home. There's a very funny part right at the end with Jamie's mentor Gennaro Contaldo.

Get writing!

I've fallen in love with these retro typewriters from BMT Vintage in Brooklyn. Not only would they make a quirky & interesting Christmas display, but how cool would it be to type up your wish-list to Santa old-school style?

Drink of choice

I don't know exactly how many bottles of wine exchange hands over the holidays, but I know it's a lot. Here's a cute wine bottle bag from a store I discovered a couple of year's back in NYC. The store's called Kate's Paperie.
