Madeline Weinrib's Holiday

come and follow Madeline Weinrib as she shops this year-

Madeline on an elephant from her recent trip to India - "An elephant ride with  Dera Amer would be a fun present if you knew someone who was taking a trip to Jaipur, India over the holiday season.” 

It looks as if they can arrange anything your heart desires.

In 2003, Joan Hornig developed a way to combine her passion for jewelry, education and philanthropy through the creation of the Joan B. Hornig Foundation. The foundation's mission is to provide support for registered charitable organizations throughout the world.Those choosing to purchase Joan Hornig designs are meant to derive pleasure not only from the jewelry, but also from the meaning of giving back. All profits from each item are donated to charity. Purchasers are able to direct the donation to a charity of their choice, in their honor, by following the steps outlined on this site.( from the Joan Hornig site here)

Madeline's choice from Joan Hornig is a beautiful jade bracelet, called "Nuts & Bolts of Giving" & the proceeds from it will go to Madeline's favorite charity Project Mala.

Madeline loves this special edition book by Federico De Vera

Madeline loves this pair of carved amethyst chandelier earrings with diamonds, set in white gold designed by  Munnu of the Gem Palace Jewelers in New York.

other exquisite pieces from the Gem Palace are available at Capitol in Charlotte North Carolina here, and  the Gem Palace in Jaipur, along with other locations in India.

A new limited edition lithograph from Rene Ricard makes Madeline's list. The lithograph is available at the Larry Gagosian Gallery in New York, with a fantastic online shop here and at 988 Madison Avenue.

Candles make beautiful gifts for the holiday season-any time really. This one- a wax bust of Marie Antoinette, bust de cire, from Cire Trudon,  with shops in New York and France

Just in case your lean to edible gift giving- Madeline has you covered. Three of her favorites are:

Every year the interior designer Timothy Whealon sends chocolates to Madeline. "Not only is he amazingly talented but so thoughtful to send these. We all look forward to them every year." They are called Hughes Home Maid Chocolates and they in Oshkosh, WI, since 1940. (yes, it is Home Maid, not Home Made)
