Over here, we're recovering from eating a platter full of these...
My mother's Christmas cookies were, as always, out of this world. I think we'll need her to help us bake a cookie a day next advent.
Now that Christmas is over, it's time to start thinking about 2012. When we were growing up, one of my friends, her mother, and her sisters used to look at December 26 as a family holiday - they'd go out early and spend the day shopping at after-Christmas sales. This year, I'm taking a page from their book. Granted, they were shopping in-store for clothes, and I'll be shopping online for homey items, but here's where I'm starting with post-Christmas sales:
1) Garnet Hill
20% off of their flannel sheets... yes, please!
2) Restoration Hardware
20% off of all full-priced items, plus further discounts on clearance items. Now's the chance to bulk up on their amazing towels! Use discount code RHSV121.
3) Crate & Barrel
Seriously discounted clearance items, especially furniture. I'd really like one of those Carly chairs... or maybe a twin sleeper sofa.
Good luck with all of the sales out there... stay homey!
