elements i love... antiques

Sunday on my mind…

 Wouldn’t it be great to make Mother’s Day every day…the day could begin with a piping hot earl grey in bed. And continue with no agenda, no cooking, no washing – just being one of the family – not the one with the list of  to-do’s.

So if you looking to make a May 11th a little more memorable this year here are a few hand-picked suggestions.  Perhaps you are a son/daughter or significant other and need some advice…read on 🙂leather slouchy, vintage books & votives

Bags, like Paris, are always a good idea. We love the design of this timeless leather slouchy bag design by Juju & Co –  great for weekends away near or far.  And arriving just in time for winter is a pile of luxurious, warm 100% wool cable-knit throws along with cosy cushions to help take the chill out of your lounge or bedroom… & for those young men (aka sons) who never know what to buy or at best leave it til the last minute ~  our ever changing stock of votives will keep you in the good books.

Or perhaps something a little more personal might be needed ~ the simple “key to your heart” necklace on a brass chain for understated mums or if they love  the boho-gypsy look a cool leather cuff is a must have ~ all pieces come beautifully boxed, no fuss.www.elementsilove.com jewellery, homewares, sydney

Winter or Summer – I can’t leave the house without a scarf (nor can a Parisian)…lots of different styles in-store, my absolute favourite are these organic cotton pigment dyed ones all the way from Berlin!










And for the mothers amongst us who love a little retro, just arrived are unique prints circa 1950’s including these dressmakers sketches from France & more fabulous images from the Nostalgia series (for more pics see Instagram pics tagged #nostalgia or visit  Nostalgia on Facebook )


We are open all week 10am -5pm including Saturday – free gift wrapping in store ! We will be closed next Sunday May 11th as i am looking forward to a lazy Sunday too 🙂
