christmas gift: wine decanters

Because so many of my friends love wine, ahem – Rosalind’s Christmas tree skirt below…


I thought decanters would make a great holiday gift. 
Find below some of my faves.

or as we like our decanters in Texas…

um..truly not my style, but I found them amusing.
Anthropolgie suggests that if you like these decanters you
might also like this.  I’ll take ten!

Are you a red or white wine gal?

cinnamon chip scones

Sometimes for fun I bake. I mean who doesn’t? A couple summers ago – the summer of I Gotta Feeling (I mark summers by songs) – I went through a scone obsession. My friend Rosalind and I discovered this pumpkin cinnamon chip scone recipe, and it became our go-to. This recipe is particularly perfect for the holiday season due to its use of cinnamon chips. If you’ve never baked with them before stop everything you’re doing and make these! 

Thanks to Ros for the pictures.
Recipe found here
We’ve never made them with the 
icing but it sounds good!

Another killer (literally – look at all 
that buttah)/one of our fave scone recipes found here

Have you ever baked scones?
