Denise Fiedler Ships

Just In, a fresh round of Denise Fiedler ships have sailed into the shops. They found their way up on the wall almost instantly as these gems have been the runaway hit this Summer. They combine vintage papers that she cuts out and then draws on to create truly special one of a kind works of art. The simple thin black frames allows you to prop them up in a bookcase, hang them on the wall or lay it flat on a coffee table as a conversation piece in place of an art book. Stylish and versatile.



 

 

Mr. Boddington’s Etiquette

Just landed at both shops, Mr. Boddington’s Etiquette: Charm And Civility For Every Occasion. Manners are always important and that importance grows each day as civility is put into question. The witty and eloquent Mr. Boddington offers ideas/suggestions for polite society in this comprehensive and thoroughly amusing guide that provides modern advice with a traditional perspective. From weddings to gift giving, social events, hosting guests, to name a few–Mr. Boddington shares the basic etiquette one needs to know and presents it all in his signature jaunty style.



 

 

Italian Sea Salt & Champagne Truffles

Just In, Italian sea salt from Jacobsen Salt Co. and champagne truffles from Louis Sherry. This is very much the case where the contents inside both are as stellar as the sublime packaging. Both companies known for their quality inside and out. Seriously, when would you think of giving salt as a gift? This just screams of gift giving to me, and the truffle tin–wow, wow, wow. What a keepsake long after the chocolates have been enjoyed.



 

 

Just In, Collegiate Pillows

Just In, embroidered collegiate pillows for those heading off, those working away and alumni. These really make awesome gifts to remember your school by and the good times had & cherished memories. I am really loving all the color in these labor intensive gems, with each taking up to 10 hours of embroider time. We will be drop shipping these directly to customers, having access to many, many schools. Each pillow is $170 and the shipping charge is $24. If at all interested, e-mail us at purveyor@watsonkennedy.com or as always, please feel free to give us a call at the shop, toll-free 1.800.991.9361.

Happy Solstice to you!



 

 

Victorinox Chocolates

I found these chocolates at the Fancy Food Show in San Francisco and was completely charmed by them, thinking they would be the perfect treat added to a Father’s Day card. Clever, to say the least, these milk chocolate treats are shaped like the utilitarian Swiss army pocket knives. Extra added bonus is the chocolate is really good, with a hint of hazelnut. We carry them now year round, but thought they would be a fab dad gift too.



 

 

French Bath Mitts at WK

I soooooo love these, Just In, French bath mitts. An old vendor of ours stopped carrying them and we were without for awhile, which had me so bummed as we have carried mitts since we first opened our doors. Le Jacquard Francais, the famed linen company in France to the rescue! Used in place of a washcloth, they have become a Watson Kennedy classic. Paired with a bar of soap, they make a chic & useful gift–a combo I quite like. Happy to have them once again grace our shelves and vignettes.






 

 

A Wall of Happy Beauty 

Just In, new works by Seattle artist Jeanne McKay Hartmann. The wall is nice and full and brimming with happy beauty. When she dropped the pieces off the other day, I was delighted as we have been wanting to have her artwork behind the back wrapstand so folks could admire it all while we wrapped away–the large number of new works made this possible. Jeanne created some larger pieces, like the below oysters with lemon, which make me absolutely swoon. One or many, they will make any wall they grace brighter.



 

 

Katie Leamon Marbleized Journals

Stunningly beautiful marbleized blank journals from Katie Leamon in England just arrived at the shops. We sell a crazy number of journals, and are always on the hunt for more. The patterns on these stopped me in my tracks they were so eye-catching. The paper super thick, perfect for a thought or creation. A welcome addition to a valise, desk or stylish coffee table for when you want to jot a note.



 

 

Royal Wedding Tea

Just In, Royal Wedding Tea by Harney & Sons at Watson Kennedy. It is getting close to being that time again. For all of us who will be getting up in the wee hours to watch the festivities to all of you hosting a fete in honor of the nuptials, a little tea might be in order. They would make pretty swell gifts to give guests, and the tin would make one nifty little vase filled with a tight bundle of blooms.



 

 

Santa Barbara Olive Co.

Just In, oodles of olives from famed Santa Barbara Olive Co. To serve just as they are, to garnish a drink, to use in a recipe or to eat straight out of the jar. I met just the nicest folks from this company at the Fancy Food Show awhile back, and am honored to carry & offer their amazing goods. Wrapped up as a trio, these make extra special host/hostess treats.
