Happy New Year!

January 2nd, 2011

This post is a bit late. Like we’re into a whole new year late. But we felt the need to share our Christmas stocking bounty since we managed to actually find some great items! We weren’t going to do presents this year but a few days before Christmas, we decided to do stockings and for the most part, we shopped local (yay Junction!).

John’s stocking for Juli (above): MOR candle from Russet & Empire, Happy Socks, Aunt Lolo’s DIY Cookies and airplane comfort kit (in grey bag) from Drake General Store and the Kay Bojesen monkey was a lucky find from World Headquarters.

Juli’s stocking for John: washi tape from The Paper Place, socks and letterpress cards from Drake General Store, Kay Bojesen soldier from World Headquarters and Panasonic Toot-a-Loop bracelet radio from Mrs. Huizenga (Junction location).

We hope you all had a wonderful holiday!

  3. I bought one of those radios when I was growing up in Aylmer, Quebec, just across the river from Ottawa. I used to ride around on my bike with it hanging from the handlebars, thinking I was very cool.

  6. More about the radio… I remember putting stickers on it and so I am trying to remember if it was sold with stickers just for that purpose or if I got them somewhere else. The stickers are long gone.
