We watched Sound of Music last night and the Favorite Things song has been running through my head ever since 🙂 I realized that I haven’t yet shared the items I contributed to our amazing basket (that someone is going to win in just a few short days!). When I considered what I wanted to put in, I thought about the things that make my little heart dance with joy. And the first thing that popped into my head (well aside from books 😉 ) was…office supplies 😀
Oh, how I love office supplies! Pens, paper clips, push pins, and most especially really cute sticky notes and note paper! I’ve also always had a major love of fleur-de-lis, damask prints, scrollwork, and anything that looks vaguely Celtic. So I found several office supply items that I kind of had a hard time parting with to be a part of our giveaway basket.
I also have a slightly more expensive love – jewelry 😀 Which is actually a bit odd because I don’t wear it much. My tastes are very eclectic and run from antique cameos to more modern twisty metal concoctions. But as our blog focuses a bit more on the historical, I sent along a beautiful cameo necklace that I hope our winner will love as much as I do 🙂
And now, I must spend the day in a flurry of sugar cookie baking for kids’ holiday parties and Santa bread for the neighbors. There are few things that say HOLIDAY to me more than the smell of sugar cookies and my mom’s dough recipe 🙂 One whiff and it feels like home again 🙂 It just wouldn’t feel like Christmas without the smell of that bread baking.
What is one of your holiday must-haves?
