New Year

Hello my dear readers! Christmas has almost come and gone (don't forget the twelve days of Christmas start on Christmas, so I won't be taking down my decorations until Epiphany comes this week), and I can hardly believe I haven't posted here since Thanksgiving. We were kept quite busy...here in the office speaking to our lovely fans & friends, opening many delightful Christmas cards you saw fit to bless us with, making toffee & other Christmas treats, collecting new mercury glass ornaments, and so much more.

Before we settle into the New Year, I had a few things I wanted to share with you!



Of course, a new planner and calendar are one of the many joys of a brand-new year before us. I just love the fresh start, don't you?

Speaking of new, we have made a few NEW changes to our aprons. I'm sure you'll agree that in this case, new means improved, thanks to our seamstress, Margarita. The detail work is just darling and sure to make these keepsakes.

And did you see how pretty that fabric is for spring? It's from our A is for Annabelle collection (heading towards being sold-out). 

But our new, NEW fabric from 1 is One is just as charming! Have you seen it?



  {My three  favorites. What are yours?}

But just because we are looking for new, doesn't mean we must disregard old favorites! Traditions are very much a beautiful part of our lives. Marjorie Tudor's collaboration with the Boston Children's Theatre on The Velveteen Rabbit is one such tradition. It was sold out (even with additional shows) this third year running, and will now be an annual Christmas tradition.

We hope to hear from you this new year! We look forward to a successful, joyful, peaceful 2012, and invite you to join us. 
Be well!
