We are scurrying around here at Janet’s House trying to get everything in place. My son is home from college and we’ve been last minute shopping instead of decorating. My daughter gets here Friday evening so we have two more days to finish decking our halls. I thought I’d take a minute to pass on a few fun finds I’ve found during our shopping sprees.
I love these salt shot glasses from The Meadow, one of my new favorite shops. Perfect for the tequila lover who thinks they have everything. They’re bored out of a solid piece of Himalayan salt and I think they’re just beautiful.
Air plants are perfect for someone who thinks they have a black thumb. An occasional dousing and they’re happy anywhere you set them…even in an old bed-spring display here at Boys Fort, another cool, downtown Portland shop. The shop bills themselves as Manthropology, a carefully curated collection for boys of all ages and those who love them.
If you still want to make something kind of crafty and natural, my recipe for spoon oil can be found here. Presented in a wooden spooned adorned jar and tied with a sprig of rosemary and a ribbon, you’ve got the gift someone will use again and again. It smells so good!
If you’re still looking for a Christmas cocktail, I think this Champagne Ginger one sounds perfect! Ginger infused vodka that you prepare the day before, then pour over chilled sparkling wine. It just sounds so Christmasy. I can’t wait to serve it; my vodka is already being infused with nice big slices of fresh ginger. For the recipe, click here.
Wishing everyone the Happiest of Holidays!
