A huge thank you to Lizzy Wilson, aka Down Girl, for an excellent week of Winter Fashion Finds and beautiful photography. Be sure to stop by Lizzy's blog, The Things She Sees and say hello! We must also thank the very generous business owners [all listed at the bottom of today's post] who loaned out all the fantastic products seen this week Guest Blog - thank you everyone for a wonderful week! - Jenny x

Whoa, this week went mighty fast. I have had such a nice time sharing all my finds with you, but before I go I have one last special wintery collection to show you. In winter we are forced by nature to go back to instinctual animalistic behaviors, and apart from eating too much, hibernating when possible and growing an extra layer of fur, I am an unstoppable hunter and gatherer of small things. I can’t help but collect as many pretty little pieces as I can to fill my nest with. Here are some of my collection so far… may I point out the stunning OKOK winter tights in the most amazing colours (ahh!) and those absolutely beautiful ceramic plaid plates by J.Kerr Grant. I have also fallen in love with Meredith Turnbull’s wooden necklaces and an old favorite of mine, Liz Low's stunning ceramics.

Thank you so much for tuning in and I hope you have a lovely cosy winter. I’m off to make some mulled wine to warm up. Yum!

One Luv Billy Bones Compos necklace $44 from Thread Den, OkOk cotton stockings $30 each.

Meredith Turnbull White Wood necklace $165 and Liz Low Bowl $85 from Craft Victoria.

Keiko Matsui House $20 per piece, J.Kerr Grant Cream Plate $95 and Cream/Black $55 from Craft Victoria.

Before I go, I have to thank so many people for lending their precious wares for me to photograph and at the drop of a hat. You are so truly wonderful and I owe you all! BIG thank-you’s to Justine & Roula from pretty little Monk House, Milly and the beautiful gang at Craft Victoria, Steph and Kyle from Five Boroughs, Emina from OKOK, Georgina from Hobes, Cecilia from Melissa Shoes, Pene Durston from Cottage Industry, Suyin and the ladies at Fitzroy Gorman, Melissa and the gang at Thread Den, Cath from Douglas & Hope and last but certainly not least Geneine and her lovely staff at Little Salon. THANK-YOU!!
