up close

here are couple close ups and not so close up shots of some of the new treasures we brought back from our recent shopping trip. detailed posts to come, but in the meantime we thought we would tempt you a bit with the gorgeous textures, art and colors we just scored...


made with love

everything at pergolina is made with love, our gift wrap, our selection of items we sell, the way we display, the food we serve at our various parties... so why shouldn't our gift certificates be made with love? we used to print a nice standard card but have now ventured into making something a bit more artful. using a simple muslin fabric, some watercolors, stamps and little imagination we now have one of a kind gift cards that hold the power to buy you a lovely something something in our shop of love. ;)

our favorite necklace right now

the very talented and lovely p j galloway dropped off some seriously beautiful jewelry the other day. diamonds, smooth wood beads, pearls, precious stones and more. every piece is exquisite. however this particular piece was one of our favorites. we love the combination of sophisticated materials that have been arranged into a very bohemian design that can dress up even a simple jeans and t shirt look. love.

eat in peace

we are madly in love with our new collection of plates and bowls for children from smiling planet. although they are intended for kids, we are tempted to snatch up a couple for our bbqs as well. every plate or bowl showcases an clever and whimsical illustration of animals and characters, messages of peace, and a delightful sense of humor that encourages finishing your meal to get to the treat to be discovered at the bottom.

smiling planet's plates and bowls are made from safe, 100% recycled, 100% recyclable, medical-grade, high purity, number #5 polypropylene. the products are CPSIA-compliant, use non-toxic inks, and are free of BPA, phthalates, PVC, and lead. number #5 polypropylene is regarded as a safe plastic by such leading authorities as healthy child healthy world. all of the dinnerware is made outside of san francisco, california.
