Product Highlight- Stemless VinoDots

Now that Halloween is over it's time for the holiday festivities to begin! Stemless VinoDots are a must have for pre turkey day cocktails, frothy cups of eggnog and your New Year's Eve champagne. They're a great conversation piece and make an excellent hostess gift.

Traditional wine charms are great, but can you remember which charm is yours after a glass of wine or two? With VinoDots, each clip-on wine charm comes with a matching button with a pin back closure to wear as a reminder. Unique prints make it easy to match your button with your glass. Never forget which wine glass is yours again!
Each of the eight clip-on wine charms is made with a 1-inch button with a clip attached to the back. They easily attach to your wine, champagne or cocktail glass. A matching button with a pin closure attaches to your sleeve, collar or any fabric. Clear mylar protects the paper and metal button face and makes clean-up easy. Simply wipe VinoDots and buttons clean with a damp cloth (not dishwasher or washing machine safe).Each set includes 8 handmade charms and 8 matching pinback buttons and comes in a tin container with a clear top cover.

VinoDots were featured in the San Francisco Chronicle's 2007 Holiday Gift Guide! Click here to see the online version of the article.Pin It

Product Highlight- Watch Necklaces

Vivi Dot Watch Necklaces are finally available in the online store!

Each Vivi Dot watch necklace is made of one quartz movement, 23mm round pendant watch with a dot attached to the stainless steel back. It is attached to a 26-inch sterling silver chain that easily slips over your head. It is designed so that when the wearer picks up the watch to read the time, they see it right-side-up.

Your Vivi Dot watch necklace will arrive with the 'set' pin pulled out. When your watch arrives, simply adjust the time and push the pin back into place to start the battery. The battery can be replaced by removing the back of the watch.

Don't forget if you don't see the print you want you can always place your order via email from the pattern catalog. See this post for more information on that.Pin It

Duncan's Quicksilver Video

Check out the rad video Duncan just completed for Quicksilver. It's an interview with Kelly Slater who recently secured his 9th Association of Surfing Professionals world title during the Billabong Pro event. This is huge considering no other surfer in the 32-year history of the Assn. of Surfing Professionals has won more than four world titles.

Between this and his recent Tim Gunn creation I think it's official that I have the coolest bf around.

Gunn/Oldham 2012

Tim Gunn is very loved in my household. He's smart, articulate and cares so much for those darn Project Runway designers it often brings him to tears. Duncan made this awesome tribute to the man who gives horribly dressed ladies hope on Tim Gunn's Guide to Style as well as killer soundbites on Project Runway.
Can't wait to see you judge the finale Tim!
Tim Gunn For President!
