We’re having a big sale on our letterpress birthday calendars and zodiac tea towels… starting right now! Calendars are 40% off and tea towels are 25% off. Use code SANTA40 for the calendars and code SANTA25 for the tea towels.
A little dinner party prompted these five-minute place cards. Use some red tape, a white pen, and candy canes to create a sweet and festive addition to each setting.
I bought 2 Costo-sized bags of cranberries for Thanksgiving, and we didn’t even have Thanksgiving at my house. To say I over estimated is a gross understatement. I laughed when I read a recent post from Heather of Farmgirl Gourmet. She too bought the Costco-sized bag but made Cranberry Juice with the excess. I guess what they say is true—when life gives you cranberries, make cranberry juice. Or something like that. I’m working on perfecting my Cosmo recipe at the moment. Happy hour anyone?

We got our tree over the weekend, and when we got it in the house, I found myself pulling miles of plastic netting of it. I felt too bad to just toss it, so I stuck it on a present I needed to wrap. I like the way it looks like gossamer thread. Why do I have the feeling there may be ribbon, scissors, and gift tags on every surface for the next four weeks?!
