Stocking Stuffers

I know, I know. This post is pretty shameless. These are some things that I would like to have in my stocking for Christmas this year.

Anise and Clary Sage Hand Lotion
I think this looks yummy.

This, too: Salt Supplies

And these: Hands of Change

Coolest Things Ever

This Etsy seller is quite the clever crafter. I love her work and here are my two favorites of hers:

This little stump would look splendid on my lapel. Or maybe one of these fine choices. I pluck my mooostaches, but these I'd wear proudly. On my other lapel.

So we had a really fun Thanksgiving today. Doug and Glo ran the Gobble Jog this morning. Anton and I got up early and ate breakfast. Just as Daddy kissed us goodbye and we were finishing our eggs and sausage, it started to rain. So we went right back upstairs to sleep the rest of the morning off listening to the pitter pat of rain above our heads. Sheer heaven.

We woke up to Uncle Peter's voice who came over to watch Anton while I baked pies. I hadn't baked a pie since I was pregnant over a year ago, so it felt really good to get back into it. I made pecan, blueberry and pumpkin. Here they all are.

Later we went to Mom & Dad's house for the big feast and were joined by the whole family: Mia, Glo, Peter, Diego (Glo's brother) Mom, Dad, Nonie and Manning. We had a terrific dinner and I can't wait to dig into the leftovers tomorrow, WHICH will be eaten, by the way, up in Rabun Gap. Weee!

I'm on Etsy!

Hi Booklovers,

Well, my sale went very well and I've got the remaining books up for sale on my Etsy site. It's not too well organized yet, but it's up. Thank you to everyone who came out to see the show. It was wonderful to see your faces!

Happy Birthday Dougie Fresh,

I love you.

We had a fabulous weekend up in Rabun Gap celebrating Doug's birthday. Here's a ridiculous cake we made him with a trendy warning. He's also sporting a shirt I embroidered for him. Friday night we ate out at La Pachanga, the local mexican restaurant. I had 2 margaritas. Oooftah. The next night we ate cake, steak burgers at home and then I had 2 martinis. Oooftah and yummy.

Book Samples

Friends and Book-Lovers,

So I've decided to post images and descriptions of the books I'll be selling next weekend at the Superior Avenue Show and Sale in Decatur next Saturday, November 17th from 1 - 6PM. I've finished all the pieces and am busy adding price tags and making a new batch of business cards. (Yes, I'm a freak and make EVERYTHING by hand.) What is wrong with me?

Anyway. Here are two for your review. More tomorrow.
