tastes orangey2Tis the season for a holiday giveaway!  You know we love paintings by Clare Elsaesser.  Six winners will get their pick of a 13 x 19 print from Clare’s shop: Tastes Orangey.   Just leave a comment with your favorite holiday movie quote and we’ll pick six winners on Tuesday!

last minute gift ideas!? {and a few winners}

We have managed to pull together a few items on our wish lists this holiday season, hopefully they’ll offer a few gift ideas in case you have some last minute shopping to do.  I also hope my husband doesn’t see this because I told him all I really wanted was a no-tangle flag pole… but let’s just say I wouldn’t complain if any of these items below found their way into my stocking.
