Cards, wooden birds and birdhouses. A disturbing amount of birds... They are out of fashion this year I believe. Overdone. But in the Catskills we don't care about fashion, which is a good thing because most of my clothes come from LL Bean, supplemented by sweaters I steal from my sons.
I love these cards from the Rifle Paper Co. I have a weakness for stationary. And office supplies.
Farm Anatomy, by Julia Rothman, is perfect for our part of the Catskills where there are many small farms. I should be gearing up for enticing people to buy things for the holidays, but my heart is not in it. I am a terrible salesperson. I put an ad in the local paper: Ease your way into holiday shopping at Country Weekend, where you won't lose your wallet or your mind." Pretty dumb, huh? Lucky for me it's an online paper (I know, I know) so I can change it as soon as I think of something less dorky. Would you like to be my advertising manager? Marketing director?
