stuff you should buy

stuff

it’s a mighty fine thing to witness neighborhoods creating opportunities to support their local creatives!

today my little ladies and i are heading over to ps321 to shop their annual holiday shop featuring over 90 local artisans.

if you are in or around the neighborhood today you should stop by between 10 am – 5 pm!
ps 321: 180 7th avenue {between 1st and second streets} brooklyn, ny

if you are not in the neighborhood you are still in luck because almost all of these lovely shops have an online presence as well! there are some really great finds  – – so be sure to check them out!!

here is a sampling of what i am looking forward to . . .

a handmade holiday

holy smokes … it’s hard to believe that we are now officially in the middle of “the holidays”!

part of the christmas magic for me is discovering ways to decorate my humble abode with a fresh design pallet each year. thankfully, my lovely friend marianne canada, host of weekday crafternoon on hgtv.com, offers creative {and very doable} crafting projects that leave you feeling as if you could take on martha stewart with one arm tied behind your back.

wait no longer . . . go online and make your season bright!
