m2matiz love


I’ve got gifts on my mind and thought I’d share some of my wishlist (both for myself and for my giftees). I’ve met some truly wonderful folk over on Instagram in the last year, many of whom are makers so would love to help promote them in any way I can.

To start, the wonderfully creative Mariana from m2matiz – whom I randomly emailed the details of a local Melbourne wood brander manufacturer to, because I thought she was better off spending her time on her wonderful photos rather than etching her name into her pieces (yeah, I do stuff like that) – luckily, she didn’t think me crazy and we’ve been in touch via Instagram for the last few months. She sent me her under heaven “t.lighthaus” (a cover that allows you to turn any jar into a beautiful tea light candle holder) and I have been besotted ever since.


Check out her website for more and also good to know is that the t.lighthaus comes flat pack in an envelope so they are very very easy to have posted to you or anyone else around the world for that matter. Enjoy!

Also saw a LOT of #raw #wood at the #woonbeurs…from turned pieces, to stools, chairs & tables…mmmmm…nothing like a bit of wood to add instant warmth to a space. :) #interiors #decor (Taken with Instagram)

Cute #wood #houses @vtwonen at the #woonbeurs but well, am trying to stick with the ‘beautiful AND useful’ philosophy… ;-) I did see some similar with a hole for a candle but was too tired by that stage to take photos! #decor #interiors (Taken with Instagram)

I like this idea – for someone really into the zodiac.

Lusting over almost everything in the By Nord catalogue, especially this #feather #pillow…& those #trays…&… #bynord #interiors #decor (Taken with Instagram)

Loving Aneeleena’s new shop, especially her clothing rails that hang from the ceiling.  This is exactly what I’ve been looking for in the attic. I think I may have to nab some of those pyramids too and maybe a diamond… ;-)
