this year, i am going to avoid those last minute rushed gifts that you so often  fall for in the countdown to the big day  ~ so i thought i would share some smaller pieces with you before it’s too late.elements i love, sambhali trust, blog

If you have been following me for a while now,  you will know we support a wonderful organisation in Rajasthan, called the Sambhali Trust – this year we have a small collection of handmade pieces made by the women & girls – by purchasing these items you will be helping to change the lives of young women in this regional part of India.

Make your Christmas table festive with pieces that are timeless ~  shop our Christmas collection.

Beautiful beaded work on these handmade stars & hearts made by Sambhali Trust

I hope this post got you in the mood for Christmas ~ i think that if you  buy what you love, steer away from gimmicky, plastic, quick-fix gifts you will enjoy the shopping & decorative elements of the season so much more.elements i love, blog, xmas
