Cape Town textile darling, Heather Moore of Skinny laMinx, has created a range of hanging decorations perfectly suited to a local Christmas scene. A scion of her iconic Eep! bird design, Heather’s retake on traditional baubles is irresistibly playful. Laser-cut from 6mm birch plywood, the Eep! birds have a Scandi simplicity to them that we just love. They were inspired by a series of 1950s Christmas decorations and given the Skinny laMinx treatment in wooden silhouette form. We prefer them to traditional red and green glass baubles and think you will too. The Eep! Birds come in a set of three for R125 and are available from Skinny laMinx at 201 Bree St, Cape Town.
