We have been having such a good time helping our wonderful customers pick 
out the best gifts for all the special people in their lives! 
Since it's the week before Christmas, we thought we would share what our top ten gift picks are.

We carry this adorable felted mistletoe every year, we just LOVE it!
It's such a great gift that you can even tie on the outside of a gift as an extra bonus!

A throw blanket is one of our most favorite gifts to give. It is so cozy.

Books are such a fabulous gift. We always have a great selection of books and this holiday season
it is sensational! We have vookbooks, design books and fun gift books too!

Every one of our Elizabeth W products are absolutely amazing!
But, the diffuser really makes such a special gift!

You know we LOVE table linens! And, we think that everyone should have
absolutely fabulous ones, so any of our table linens make a wonderful gift.

a perfect sweet gift for a little one.

We love to give a set of three and mix them up for a fun set.

Any woman loves a great nighty. And, we have the best beautiful chemise
and pj's for a pretty gift.

A cake stand is a fun gift. Our milkglass ones are great!
We have a couple sizes and lots of  great colors. The pink is so fun!

Glass pitchers can not only be used for serving but also a great

Happy Cottagestyle Thanksgiving Table.

We can't help it, but we just love setting a special table. Thanksgiving is one of the best times of the whole year, to go all out and set an amazing table! This season, we have been just obsessed with selection for setting the most amazing tables. 

Here's how we will be setting the Cottagestyle Thanksgiving Table this season. 

Starting the setting with a fun festive tablecloth. We thought this one was a perfect Cottagestyle Thanksgiving start.

We wanted to bring out the burnt orange and chose our hemstitch linen napkins.

Nothing sets a table more beautifully then Juliska and we went with the fun cocoa brown for this year.

These laundered linen tea towels add a fun touch to your bread baskets. And again, we are LOVING the burnt orange!

Our fabulous french water glasses. 

Almost every table must have a Blenko water bottle. We have been in love with these for years and years
and thought the amber was perfect for this tablesetting!

All our serveware is white on this table. And so much is the Berry & Thread Juliska white!

We went with the grey cocktail glasses to keep a great fall feel.

Paper Love.

Truly, who dosen't absolutely love getting a handwritten note in the mail? We think that you should always send a sweet sentiment or a snarky laugh to those you love and care about. Of course, you should always remember certain occassions; birthdays, etc. But, what is better then a just because you were on my mind card.. Not much!

We just adore our friends from Farewell Paperie. They are Letterpress rockstars; not to mention, super clever ladies who always give us a good chuckle or a sweet feeling when we put out a new box full of cards. I mean, 'Awesome Sauce,' 'You Made  A Baby,' 'Miss You Mucho' are simply Paper Love.
We have been carrying their line for years and always enjoy it!

We have some really awesome ones for you to stock up on and have on hand to send to all those who should get a card from you!
