Molton Brown Geranium Nefertum at WK

Just In, a new scent from London based Molton Brown, Geranium Nefertum. Available in both bath & shower gel along with body lotion, it is a summery duo that will be enjoyed year round. You know I am crazy for anything with geranium in it–this fits the bill through and through. I put a few healthy dollops in the bathtub before I take my shower in the morning. The whole bathroom a symphony of geranium goodness when I get ready to step in. The exquisite packaging makes for a lovely gift too.



 

 

Maison Louis Marie at Watson Kennedy

Just In, body and hand wash along with body lotion from Maison Louis Marie. The scents coordinate with the divine candles we have been stocking for some time. This has been such a lovely line to add to our shop offerings. Liked by both women and men, the scents are pretty darn heavenly. I love the super clean packaging too. The trio makes for one super fab host/hostess gift for Summer week-end trips visiting friends or family. The body lotion a major treat after a day at the beach. Happy last Saturday in June!



 

 

Summmaaaaaa Coasters

Just In, made of Italian marble from Verona coasters that have a very preppy vibe going on. Perfect for Summer entertaining, outdoors or in. A coaster is one of those utilitarian things that can be bumped up style-wise considerably when a cool pattern is added. Some folks like them all to match while others like an assortment. These best selling coasters have been a winner since we first opened the shops–this latest crop, sure to please.



 

 

Bartlett House Jams at Watson Kennedy

Super excited to have these awesome jams from our beloved Bartlett House in Ghent on the way, arriving next week. The flavor combinations out of this world. The packaging making it an amazing host/hostess gift or a lovely treat for Mother’s Day.



 

 

The Coolest Pitcher

Just In, the coolest frog pitcher. Whimsical in every way. We carried these years ago but then the supplier stopped importing them. Fast forward to now and they are once again gracing our shelves. So fun I can hardly stand it!



 

 

Maison Louis Marie Perfume Oil at WK

Just In, perfume oil by Maison Louis Marie is the last addition to our scent family at Watson Kennedy. The rollerball bottle fit neatly in your purse or valise for a little mid-day refresh. Make the sweetest little thoughtful, stylish, yummy smelling gifts.



 

 

Blackwing Pencils, Sharpeners & Journals at WK

Just In, a fresh round of Blackwing pencils, sharpeners and journals at Watson Kennedy. When only the best will do. A bit of history on these iconic writing tools:

Blackwing pencils were originally introduced by the Eberhard Faber Pencil Company in the 1930s. Their cult following included John Steinbeck and Chuck Jones, who proudly used Blackwings to create Bugs Bunny and many other Looney Tunes characters.

Despite this following, they fell victim to cost cutting measures in the 1990s and were discontinued. But, that didn’t stop devotees from paying as much as $40 per pencil to seize unused stock. In 2010, the company drew from nearly a century of experience in the pencil business to access the best materials in the world and bring Blackwing back for a new generation of writers, musicians, and others seeking only the finest writing instruments. Now at $4 a pencil, they are a simple luxury for those wanting to reach for only the very finest when putting your words or images to paper.



 

 

Geranium Plates by Bordallo Pinheiro

Just In, whimsically beautiful geranium leaf plates at Watson Kennedy. Pleased as punch to announce the arrival of our latest order of Bordallo Pinheiro from Portugal. Since 1884, they have been creating cherished heirloom quality tableware to be enjoyed through the generations. We have carried bits & pieces over the years but my fondness and admiration has grown as we use it in our own homes and love it so much. So look for more and more than of it showing up on our shop shelves and vignettes in the coming months.



 

 

Diptyque Valentine Candles at WK

Just In, two wildly yummy new Diptyque candles created in honor of Valentine’s Day. They arrived at the shop the other day and I can’t stop sniffing them, their floral goodness intoxicating. Plus I quite like the colored containers, which filters the light of the flame, creating a lovely moody environment when lit. It is always a treat when these limited edition candles arrive, as they make extra special gifts.



 

 

A Fresh Round of Hugo Guinness Works at WK

Just In, and back from our new framer in Seattle, over 40 new works by Brooklyn artist Hugo Guinness. We house his linoleum cut prints in vintage frames we find on our travels. Both shops have a lovely variety of them. Hugo’s work is collected around the world–his iconic singular image pieces spiff up any wall they grace.
