Fa la la la...

I unabashedly love all things Martha, and was tickled to see Old News in Blueprint (MS Living's hipper younger sister, if you will)! I've often toyed with the tempting, but ultimately too decadent, notion of using wallpaper to wrap a gift. If you don't already get this magazine, this month's issue will have you filling out a subscription form.

These adorable and inexpensive rings were featured in their holiday gift guide and are from Avon's Mark. line - who knew? Incidentally, they are among "Lauren Conrad's Favorites." For the record, we would never, ever buy a favorite of Heidi Montag's. I especially love how their gift guide included several DIY options - homemade gifts are always a hit, and Blueprint will help you whip something up that doesn't look like it was made by a 7 year old.

And there is also a fantastic story about the home of Amy and David Butler in charming Granville, OH. When I briefly lived in Columbus, Granville was a favorite weekend destination and is truly a gem. As are Amy's fabrics - maybe when our custom service launches, we can get her to do some wallpaper patterns!
