In Vermont

December 28, 2010

lucile's Kitchen

Hello from Snowy Vermont!  I’m spending the last few days of the year here, cozying up with my family and a few friends.  I just found this quote from EB White (or perhaps Robert Frost?) that describes our time nicely:

To foreigners, a Yankee is an American.
To Americans, a Yankee is a Northerner.
To Northerners, a Yankee is an Easterner.
To Easterners, a Yankee is a New Englander.
To New Englanders, a Yankee is a Vermonter.
And in Vermont, a Yankee is somebody who eats pie for breakfast.

Which we do indeed do.  In fact, that sounds like a great way to start the day tomorrow.

See you in the new year!  It’s going to be a wonderful one– I can just feel it!



You can buy the above lovely print from Lucille’s Kitchen right here.


Baggu Wrapping

December 17, 2010


Do you guys know about Baggu?

Yes, their website design is impeccable, but really they are in the business of making lovely bags.  They started with nylon ones you can roll up and save for shopping, (above,) but they’ve expanded their line to include other bags, such as this swank backpack as featured in none other than the Sartorialist:

Anyways, they made this handy tutorial about wrapping presents with Baggu bags.  It reminds me of Japanese furoshiki wrapping, but even easier:

So simple, right? Two presents in one!

Is it wrong to be jealous of a baby?  Probably, but there you have it.
