fridays I am usually feeling pretty good. I do yoga on Thursday nights, and so I always wake up with a fresh and new outlook on things. things tend to look, feel and smell better. which I think must be a good thing.
this morning during my morning routine, I was reading my most recent purchase :: the latest issue of Inside Out magazine, the CHRISTMAS issue. I have already been secretly planning my christmas decorations, and doing a bit of present shopping, and so I love it when the retail and media world can confirm with me that this is ok, by decorating and publishing gift guides and christmas themed issues.
so today, my fave fab friday find, is going to be pages 15 and 16 from this latest CHRISTMAS 09 issue from Inside Out. as you know, I am a hard core handmade, indie, local, nice things shopper, and I am just loving that these "bigger" mags are jumping on board this "trend" for want of a better word. from what I can tell, they are recommending us gorgeous things, which are mostly handmade, locally made, unique, eco-friendly or just generally pretty special.
I thought I would try and itemise and link to everything on these pages, for my own reference (because I was going to be adding them to my favourites anyway) and of course for your own!
you can click on the image and be taken to my flickr page, from there I have made notes which include links to all the things featured on the page! cool huh! does that make sense? otherwise, I have included the "stockist list" here too.
page 15 :: bride and wolfe :: materialistic :: notemaker :: naomi murrell :: the cooking company :: made it :: funkis :: design for use :: hard to find :: annas cuisina ::
page 16 :: distracted :: papier d'amour :: lightly :: polli :: MCA shop :: papaya :: paper boat press :: nana huchy :: third drawn down :: no chintz :: honey bee homewares ::
thank you Inside Out, for not only being gorgeous to look at, but for giving links to even more amazing (Australian) stores and pretty sweet things. just when you thought you had seen it all hey! well done!! make sure you check out their blog, if like me, the monthly fix is not enough!
