Yes indeed!! That magical day when we all put on Argyle Sweaters, go out for lunch and go to the bookstore for a coffee! Right? Oh that's just my family? Huh, I thought it was a national holiday. Oh well. While we are taking our annual sweater picture please use the code HOLIDAY15 for 20% off everything in the shop as well as any custom orders now through Monday, November 30th. If you message me for a custom order during that time I will also honor the 20% off
I made this little bunny tote for my friend Meg's gorgeous one year old, Wren. She's basically the sweetest little squidge. The bag is Wren sized so it's about 8 inches by 12 inches, perfect sized for Wren to carry her nice things in. I was thinking of adding some one of a kind totes to the shop but they're a bit time consuming so it's slow going. I'm also working on one for my godson Charlie to carry his library books in but since he's only 9 months old he's not the most literary of fellows so there's no rush.
Christmas cards, as I've said before, are my most favourite things. Dave and I sent out so many of them and sitting in front of Christmas in Connecticut (BEST MOVIE EVER) with massive cups of tea while I write cards to all our friends is the most Christmasy thing in the world.
We haven't finalized our pick for this year but here are some of my favourites:
Top row from left: Custom Family Holiday Cards, Santa Christmas Card, Return Address Stamp
Middle row : Tis the Season Card, Pine Branches Holiday Cards, Scottish Terrier Card
Bottom row: Letterpress Pinecone Card, Tis the Season Illustrated Card, Baby It's Cold Outside Card
Stockings are probably my favourite part of Christmas. They are always filled with magical little things you would never buy yourself and that you can tear open without the polite waiting until after breakfast and taking polite turns (youngest to oldest in my household). A bit of chocolate, some fancy soap, crafty things and a bit of tea. This year I would love to find in my stocking:
