The Holidays are Coming!

I woke up this morning at five a.m. to the sound of the telephone ringing letting me know that the school was on a two hour delay due to weather.  Amazed I looked out the window, and sure enough, it was snowing!  Wasn't Halloween just a week ago?  It reminded me that the Holidays are on their way, ready or not.
I have been very busy with the website.  I have added a bunch of new merchandise (please check it out when you get a chance).  The site also has a few new pages.  The first is called Tuesday Treasures - every Tuesday, I will add a few items to the page for a sale.  The next is 'We are Thankful for you'.  This sale will begin Monday, November 15 and run through November 30.  It is sponsored by Shabby Lane Shops, if you are unfamiliar with this site, you have to check it out.  It includes many web shops that sell beautiful items, vintage and vintage inspired. Here is the link:

I have also included a holiday cookie recipe for Grandma's Italian Cookies.  They are delicious, and yes, my mom makes them every year during the season.

I was watching a movie the other day and noticed that people really seemed to enjoy the art of writing.  Not email and quick notes, but letters and journals.  Today, it seems almost foreign to tell someone you will contact them via the mail, or snail mail as it is now called, and the recipient will receive your response, information, whatever you are sending in about five to seven days.  In Pride and Prejudice, Elizabeth Bennet received a very long letter from Mr. Darcy explaining in great detail events that she needs to know.  He did not stand there and try to have a conversation with her.  He needed to go into great detail, and conversation just would not do.

Also, people wrote journals, collected items in scrapbooks.  I know you can keep a journal on a computer, but what if you want to save some little trinkets, tickets, papers.  My family and I went to a football game the other day.  Of course, I kept the tickets and took some photographs, but what to do now?  Well, I decided to create a mini scrapbook.  We can add the tickets, any photos, and add any writings and we will have it, right there, in one place, nice and organized.  We have so much fun creating these, that I decided to include Altered Books in the boutique.

This book has ten pages, approximately five by seven each, that can hold all of your own writings and those special little items that you want to keep, but will get lost if you do not put them someplace special.  I will be adding more designs to the boutique shortly.  Be sure to visit online at: 

Let me know if you have any thoughts or special requests.
