For Bebe








Look at these darling little handmade elephants by Fern & Feather.  I'm always on the lookout for beautiful baby gifts.  With two friends having babies soon I think I might just have to order one in but it's so hard to choose which one!  Click HERE to see the current selection available.

Christmas Gift Idea





For the friend or relative who has everything, I think these personalised paperweights from Iomoi make for a fantastic gift. A couple of Christmas' ago I gave all my girlfriends one of these and they loved them. I think they look great on a coffee table or bedside table clustered in a group. Maybe this could be the start of a collection of paper weights for your friend/relative! My only problem is choosing which one to go for as there are SO many gorgeous designs to select from!!

You Mean The World To Me...



I very much like these pretty Valentines boxes D.Sharp created for Kate's Paperie. Add some chocolates, lollies, jewellery, a love note, a dinner invitation, a quote, a poem or a special vintage keepsake and voila you have the perfect Valentines Day gift for your loved one!

I am totally in love with these new release scalloped gift cards from Annechovie...what a great Christmas gift idea.


Gift Idea


I love this old Lolly Jar and scoop available from Elements. I think this would make a gorgeous Christmas gift for a sweet tooth! My dad would love this for Christmas filled with all of his favourite jube lollies!!

Gift Wrap Idea




Tonight I'm going to dinner with a friend to celebrate her birthday. I always love to put lots of effort into wrapping my gifts and one thing I often do is wrap my gifts in wallpaper which I may have left over from a job or from a display we have done at Black & Spiro. This gift above, which I will give to my friend tonight, I wrapped in some left over Designer Guild paper I had. I just think it's a lovely way to make your gift look a little different and also for me it's a great way to use up the left overs!!

Paper Love


Totally in love with these gorgeous bow cards from Seesaw Designs!

Teacup Candles



What a great gift idea this is - a teacup candle created by Australian company MOR Cosmetics. There are a few different ones to collect and after the candle has finished you can use it as a teacup!! How fantastic is that!!

I Love Cupcakes...


Images - Anna Spiro - Cupcakes by The Cupcake Company

Today one of my lovely clients came into the shop for a meeting as we are working on the finishes and furnishings for her new home which is currently under construction. The house is going to be a very special house which I am very excited about working on (more about that to come). As this lovely client walked into our meeting room at Black & Spiro she handed me a box which was filled with the most beautiful home made looking cupcakes iced in bright colours and decorated with love hearts. She told me they are the cupcakes she is making for Valentines Day. If you live in Brisbane and ever need beautiful cupcakes you must call Sharnel or Keren. These two ladies own and run The Cupcake Company and are specialists in the home made cupcake. If you want to know more be sure to visit their new blog The Cupcake Company or email them on thecupcakecompany@bigpond.com. Sharnel & Keren thank you so much for this lovely gift. There are now only 2 cupcakes left and I'm sure they are not going to last too much longer!!

An Early Christmas Delivery




I was very excited to receive an early Christmas package in the mail today from a special friend in the U.S. Inside the gorgeously wrapped gift (and yes that is a Kate Spade Christmas card) was the very last edition of American House & Garden - what a treat! Thank you Courtney!!

Correspondence Cards

I love these correspondence cards available online from The Met Store (Metropolitan Museum of Art New York). I tend to be drawn towards butterflies so these little gold embossed cards completely drew me in!!


I also adore the dragonfly cards as above with the gorgeous Tiffany blue box!! This design is taken from a hair ornament (circa 1904) by Louis Comfort Tiffany - one of America's most noted decorative artists which is now in the Met's Museum collection.


I think a box of either would make for a gorgeous Christmas gift for a close friend!!
