rachel's wishlist

happy december, friends! we're gearing up for the holidays here at o'suz, and we wanted to share some of our favorite things, our own little wishlists. you may have noticed some new faces in the shop since we expanded, and today's list comes from rachel, who started with us just a few months ago after moving to charlottesville with her new husband. (congrats to the lovebirds!)

soap & paper factory roland pine candle
so many people have commented on how much this candle smells
exactly like the holidays at their childhood homes.

you know we love our katie mawson fingerless gloves!

several years back todd oldham started a campaign to bring attention
to the work of designer charley harper, and this beautiful book
remains a perennial fave around o'suz.

2012 is just around the corner, and the vintage-inspired botanical illustrations
of rifle paper co. will make the gray skies of january and february seem a little brighter.

photographs of this last item on rachel's wishlist can't do it justice.
made in israel from sterling silver that is woven together, this "hammock" necklace
by mora feels like super fine chain mail that moves as you move.

stay tuned for more wishlists in the coming weeks!
