    The sun is shining, the birds are singing, summer is in the air, and our new collection is blooming. (youll love it) HOMEKEEPING. A collection of useful and beautiful things for your happy home. (William Morris would approve.) Ranging from lavender infused vintage clothespegs to hand made mugs designed to make your day, this collection makes even the most basic items beautiful and special. TPGs. Were so good at selecting The Perfect Gift, weve even got an acronym for it. The year is full of gift giving occasions, and our new collection of TPGs will get you two thank you notes: one when you give the gift, and another years later when your friend is still using and loving your gift.

    Our items are always sustainable, always beautiful, and always memorable. Oh, and they always benefit environmental causes through our partnership with 1% for the Planet.
