#1,761 Christmas Come Early + Bekah.

After a storm pre-emptive walk with the pups this morning:

I hustled over to the studio to make all the finishing touches to our 2014 Christmas stationery, photographed it, and got it all up on the website before the day’s end!
You can shop our new holiday stuff right here if you’re the early bird type.
I’m particularly excited about finally making a Christmas card for Laurel, which hopefully a few other people around here will like, too. 
(That little Big Ben ornament!)
The finished pen and watercolor illustration for the Glad Tidings card makes my heart happy. 

And just as I was closing up shop for the day, my sweet friend Bekah was just arriving for a dinner stop and a break from driving in the awful weather on her way to the coast. I wish I had thought to take more photos, but this will have to suffice:
We had tomato bisque, left over tamale pie, salad, fresh grapes and pumpkin cheesecake (a hodgepodge supper) with Bekah, Josh and Emily while the wind and rain and thunder pounded on the house. We started talking about scary movies since it’s two weeks until Halloween and we’ve yet to watch one—which led to listening to Harold from Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark at the dinner table in the dim light of the wall sconces. This is the same recording that horrified me in childhood, but tonight just tickled a part of my silly childhood heart.
Tomorrow, fall returns. I’ve missed you, 72 degrees.

  1. If I lived in the States, I would've bought pretty much all your cards, but I don't think friends and family would understand the cards 😉 I'll just stick with the Glad tidings! Laurel is absolutely gorgeous, by the way 🙂

  2. I have the cans of fire roasted tomatoes in my pantry for the soup. It is a blustery, rainy day here in East TN so it might be the perfect weather.


  3. We haven't watched any scary movies yet either! Only Hocus Pocus, which is a Halloween must, but really just for childhood nostalgia.
    I love a good ghost/haunting movie (not so much the ax-murderer junk), but Shaun hates them. So I'm usually trying to convince him to stop being a scaredy cat around Halloween. We'll see if I am successful this year. 😉

    • Ooohhhh noooo!!! We must change that! Set your dvr, girl. It is on tv non-stop this time of year, it seems. If anything, you can laugh at its silliness and the poor acting. It is still my reason for wanting to get up east some Fall and see Salem!
