suzannah's wishlist!

here we are at december 23 already! we'll be at the shop on saturday, christmas eve from 10 til 5ish. on christmas day we'll be digging through our stockings and sipping some yummy nog, and we're going to extend our christmas a little bit and also be closed on monday, december 26. the shop will reopen at 10:00 on tuesday. we look forward to seeing some of you tomorrow for all of your down-to the-wire gifties! here are some of suzannah's faves, all of which we still have in the store...come see!

this is a favorite wintery children's book. though not specifically holiday-themed,
we love the celebration of chilly air and white snow. (not that we can imagine it
snowing in virginia any time soon!)

jonathan adler butter dishes are such an amazing combination of form and function.
who doesn't want to encounter a happy dachshund pup or this sleek white whale while
buttering the morning toast?

infinity scarves have been popping up in all sorts of variations, but we love
these cozy 100% merino striped numbers that are made by mackintosh of scotland,
a clothing and accessories line founded in 1875. we have a few different stripes --
black, a pinky-orange, gray, and brown.

holy moly, these roost drusy rings bring the sparkle!

we're so excited to be stocking the wild unknown calendars again this year!
artist kim krans creates line drawings of birds, bunnies, feathers, and nests
and then pairs each drawing with a song lyric, with contributions from
bob dylan, neil young, emmylou harris, fleetwood mac, and many others.

last, but certainly not least, lotta helleberg's lavender sachets are a perennial favorite!
made here in charlottesville, lotta grows the lavender herself and then
prints soft linen with botanical specimens, the impressions formed by the direct application
of ink to the leaves themselves. these sachets smell so amazing and are a
perfect stocking stuffer or hostess gift. you'll rarely find an o'suz girl without a set in her car!

that wraps up our holiday wishlists for 2011! thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who has shopped at o'suzannah this season, and we're excited to see you soon with your
new o'suz jewels and gems, bags, scarves, wallets, etc! happy holidays, friends!
