+1 -- these wallpapers by lisa congdon from hygge & west should be up in my house right now. pretty awesome, huh?
+2-- i had seen pictures of these awesome himmeli before and no idea what they were -- they are traditional finnish ornaments -- BUT I LOVE THEM. can't wait to try and make them. -- maybe today? here are two great tutorial here (image 1) and here (image 2)
+3-- my brother-in-law, jeremy (mary's husband) is a pro at making fudge -- he learned from his grandfather-- and makes it every year around the holidays. so, naturally when i saw this recipe, i knew this christmas would be like no other. jeremy's fudge + these add ins = heaven on earth and the best fudge ever.
