Little Winter=Happiness

Is it odd that a shopping event made me feel happy inside for a few days? I've been excited for Little Winter for a while now, especially when it became apparent that I could finagle a few things in our hectic family life and actually attend. I was practically giddy just thinking about it all day Saturday, and beside myself on the way there Sunday afternoon. And Little Winter most definitely did not disappoint! It was very, very hard to narrow down my purchases; I wanted to buy so many beautiful things. But out of all of the lovelies, here's what I came away with:

Mossiere's 2011 silkscreened calendar--I had a hard time choosing which lovely print to get, but this Pacific Northwest Flora and Fauna calendar can be trimmed to fit a 12.5x12.5" frame when the year is over. Score! And it reaffirmed my desire to learn how to do calligraphy AND silkscreening.

A yummy cake print from Paul Ferney--I agonized over which cake print to choose for about 5 minutes; they're all so cute.

A God Jul card from Owls Go Hoot for Garment House for my Norwegian grandparents--I only wish I had gone ahead and bought the matching gift tags. :(

Everything about Little Winter was wonderful: the fresh, clean styling; the fantastic location; the window displays; the gift-wrapping. It was just beautiful, and I can't wait for more!


  1. Oh, excellent choices. Is that the actual painting of the cake or just a print? I want them to make prints available online since I can't afford the originals.

  2. Thanks Melanie. It was really hard to choose which things to get. That is most definitely NOT the original, although that would be awesome. It is a same-size print, 5x7, and I don't know if they have plans to put them online, but my guess is yes?

  3. YAY!
    I feel the same way :)
    It was my intention to create a fun event that was not only centered on shopping, but on real connections. I am so thrilled to hear that you felt it, too.
    Thank you for coming and thank you for sharing.
