The Most Wonderful Time of the Year! The 2010 Holiday Collection

Posted on October 15, 2010

It's here! Some of you may roll your eyes in "its too early" dismay. I know. But the months of work and love that go into creating our yearly Holiday Collection make this a very big day for us! We can not contain ourselves any longer...we just HAVE to share it with you now!

I'll just share a few favorites with you here, like the WHERE WE MET custom map ornament, above; isn't it perfect for newlyweds or a couple spending their first holiday together?   Go check out the whole collection for yourself.

These darling Custom Animal Silhouette Ornaments, above, are perfect for the whole family- even for Baby's First Christmas. Choose the perfect animal for everyone in the family, and turn your tree in a menagerie!

And for the kids, a special Key for Santa. We all wonder how he gets in the back door. I know he can't fit that "bowl full of jelly" belly down my water heater exhaust vent. Not to mention all of those packages. Instead of making up stories or speculating, leave Santa this key, hanging from your door knob, so he can get in on Christmas Eve without any problems. Arrives to you in a cloth bag custom stamped with your family name. Problem solved.

Lastly, be sure to check out our new ceramic letters- below.  Hefty and measuring 3" long, you can hang one as an ornament or decoration, or string them as we have here to create words, phrases, names.  Perfect for holiday parties, wedding and engagement photos, anything you can imagination.  Picture them over a dessert table, on a door, or creating a message within a family portrait. A fun detail that will certainly become an heirloom as you display it each holiday.

This year, for your convenience, the entire collection will be available both on the Paloma's Nest website and in our Etsy shop. So go enjoy, and have yourself a very merry season. Be sure to join our mailing list up at the top right of this page, as we will be sending out coupons throughout the winter.  Cheers!

Custom Silhouettes by Jenny Lee Fowler

Posted on October 03, 2010

I have admired these custom silhouettes by artist Jenny Lee Fowler for quite some time. I think they would make such a beautiful wedding or anniversary gift- and what a unique heirloom! Jenny hand cuts every silhouette free-hand, just by observation. No photoshop, no shadows. Just pure dedication to her art, and a really sharp pair of scissors. Adding to the uniqueness of her work, Jenny cuts her portraits from found leaves, birch bark, and other found materials. Be sure to visit her shop to see the rest of her offerings.

Custom Order: Anuja & Joe in Austin. Not just for Ring Bearers!

Posted on September 29, 2010

Anuja and Joe were married here in our city of Austin, at the historic Mansion at Judges Hill in a classic event arranged by BZ Events.

Their Custom Ring Bearer Bowl™ was captured by photographer Kim Peichel, and was hand stamped with the quote "What's Important to You is More Important to Me," along with their names and wedding date.

I love this image, and it brings up something I'd like to point out about our Ring Bearer Bowls™.  They don't have to be carried by a Ring Bearer! Many brides these days don't have a Ring Bearer, but instead ask a maid of honor, groomsman, reader, parent, or officiant carry the Ring Bearer Bowl™ down the aisle for them. Having this piece as part of a wedding ceremony makes it even more meaningful to cherish for years to come- whether in a ceremony, a ring warming, or a ring blessing.

We hope that this piece has become a treasured heirloom for Anuja and Joe!

The work of A.Speer Ceramic Studio

Posted on September 20, 2010

Elephants. Bunnies. Puppies. Oh my! How adorable are these Animal Bowls by Adrienne Speer of San Antonio? I think they would be darling as a baby gift- imagine a parade of them on top of a nursery dresser, holding all of those tiny newborn necessities. And since they are hand made, each one has its own personality, and they are certainly crafted with lots of love. These treasures are the perfect keepsake gift that will be cherished as a child grows up. Later on they can hold jewelry or desk supplies. Fun and timeless- oh my!
