photo pocket ornamentby Heather Shaw
- the story
This dreamy picture pocket ornament captures the soft, hazy glow that wrap our fondest memories. Slip a small photo of a favorite person or moment into the handmade pocket, and watch as its gauzy linen exterior transforms it with a soft focus, while a bamboo backing protects the picture from losing its crisp shape. The ornament hangs from an organza ribbon, attached with an antique button. Its festive "happy holidays" greeting printed on the back makes for a special gift for distant friends, or a spirited way to display your own precious memories. Handmade in Canada by Heather Shaw.

- the maker
Inspired by the concept of pillows as blank canvases, art history buff and textiles expert Heather Shaw set off on a crafty journey around 1995--and continues exploring her zeal for art and design with her whimsical line of embroidered pillows.
Inspired by natural materials, simple lines and soothing palettes, Shaw first explored stenciling and screen-printing motifs onto organic fabrics, finishing each piece with striking silhouettes of original embroidery. Since becoming a mother and an aunt, Shaw has integrated playful motifs and iconic childhood images into her work.
Shaw graduated with a degree in Textiles from art school in her native region of eastern Canada, where she currently handcrafts every whimsical pillow with care from the creative bunker of her home studio in Toronto. collection
