Hi, friends! Are Christmas preparations in full swing at your houses? They are at mine. Our three Christmas trees are up (don’t worry, they’re all little!), as is our nativity, and we’re excited to begin our Advent calendar on Thursday. I’m also turning a more serious eye to the remainder of my Christmas list. I’m about half done… how about y’all?
If your answer was “haven’t started,” I’ve got a suggestion: vintage state kitchen towels. I happened upon one the other day, and was reminded how fun they are. I think they’d make the best gift for a pal with a colorful home, a softness for vintage style, or some fierce state pride, and would look so cute framed or sewn into a pillow. A quick search yielded a few vintage and reproduction sources:
Finally, if you don’t want to spend time searching, you can go straight to Cat Studio, though you’ll pay more for the convenience. They stock just about every type of location, from states to cities, from regions and resorts to national parks and countries. Their kitchen towels are $20.
I hope you all had the most wonderful weekends imaginable! Now that we’re on to all things Christmas, I wanted to give you a quick heads up that I stocked the shop with some very festive drink stirrers! I think these guys would be so cute at a holiday party, or as a little Christmas gift for a friend who likes to entertain.
Happy Thanksgiving, my friends! The things I am grateful for include, but are not limited to, my family (some of which is here with us, celebrating today!), my dear friends, Kraft macaroni and cheese, my kitties, John, the marvelous country we live in, STUFFING, and all of you! (In no particular order.)
I hope you all have a wonderful day filled with delicious food!
