On My Radar Screen

Happy Friday!!! It's hard to believe today is the last day of November - 2013 will be here before we know it!

Here's what is on my radar screen this week:


I want this book - The Night Before Christmas in Paris tells the story of Madame Claus' adventures in Paris! Add this one to my stocking stuffer list. (Thanks to Tish at A Femme D'Un Certain Age for putting finding this wonderful book.)
 
 
 
The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree was lit this week and will remain lit until January 7th. This is the 80th anniversary of the lighting. This years tree came from Flanders, NJ and will be adorned with more than 30,000 colored lights and a Swaroski star. I saw the unlit tere when I was in the city a week agao - it's huge!
 
 
Did you know McAdenville, North Carolina is known as Christmastown, USA. Just outside of Charlotte, this small town lights over 350 trees every year. The official tree lighting is tonight and they will stay lit every night until December 26th.
 
 
I crossed many things off my gift list this week (and bought a few goodies for myself) courtesy of my generous gift certificate from Terrain that I won in a giveaway from the adorable Joanna Goddard of Cup of Jo. Their store in Westport, CT is a shopping destination in itself - the restaurant there is also excellent. They have a workshop tomorrow on Trimming the Holiday Hearth and a Wreathmaking Class on Sunday.
 

Another gift suggestion - Turn a favorite photo into gallery quality canvas art through Printcopia. They are offering 25% off and free shipping right now.

Have a wonderful weekend!!!

We never make it into the city to see the tree, can you believe that? This year is a must. That store looks fantastic. I can't wait to see what you make.
