At the first hint of chill in the air, my thoughts turn to Christmas. My mind and heart begin to fill with visions of sugar plums indeed. My weekly menu turns decidedly toward comfort food and I begin rummaging in my brain for homemade Christmas gift ideas for my loved ones. I begin hauling out first the autumn decorations and later the Christmas, decking my halls and every other available surface. I take delight in the season, the magic, wonder and glory of it all. This blog was born from that delight. Here you will find dinner ideas, crafts, decor, stories, memories, and music. Some ideas will be entirely mine, but I will also include anything cute I come across that I think you might like to see, credit given to the creator or source. Please leave me your ideas in the comments and any other feedback you'd like to give.

An Advent Calendar

It will soon be that time. Time to put out an Advent Calendar in anticipation of the The Big Event. If you're feeling extravagant, check out this one from FAO Schwarz. I didn't put in a direct link because they seem to be out of stock- despite the $1,125 price tag. This is a beautiful, handmade, wooden advent calendar from Germany. Gorgeous, right?
