Dear Father Christmas,
I know you've probably already made all of your decisions regarding Christmas presents for this year - given that it's so close and all, but I've just found something that I really like, and I don't know anybody else who'll be able to get it for me, so I thought of you, that's all.
It's this be-oo-tiful 'Tea Garden' tea-set, illustrated by Kat Macleod for the Heide Musuem of Modern Art. It's just been released in a limited edition of only 250 sets, signed by Kat, and individually numbered (in gold, of course,) and I only found out about it this morning on The Design Files, which is why I didn't ask you for it earlier. Sorry.
Anyhow, if you decide I've been good enough, the 'Tea Garden' set is $149.95 and you can get one from the Heide gift shop. They don't yet have an online store, but Heide will happily process credit card transactions over the phone and post anywhere within Australia. That should help you a lot, coz I guess you don't have many of these little beauties stashed up at the North Pole, do you?
I thank you for your consideration. This is the first time I've asked you for something for lots and lots of years, but I have never been disappointed in you in the past.
PS We'll be in Geelong for Christmas this year. There is a chimney into the dining room in case you've forgotten.
