MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL
When children go to bed with sugar plums dancing in their heads - hoping for Santa Claus to climb down the chimney - adults may ponder upon the following story, written by Holly McWhorter for Inhabitat.
Enjoy reading, "Santa and the 'Shrooms: The Real Story behind the design of Christmas"...
Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night!

EDIBLE DOWNTON ABBEY
In a few weeks, Downton Abby recommences. And for those of us who are obsessed with this BBC import, we must try to enjoy our holidays in spite of our anticipation.
However, Curtis Jensen (in the above video), creates a monumental gingerbread house, made in the likeness of the Crawley home - soothing our appetites, temporarily.
This should help to calm us all down until January 6, 2012!

WHIMSICAL WOVEN WONDERS
From the studio of Claire Anne O'Brien - her collection of knitted Irish animals. From Fionn the Fox to Liam the Hare to Brigid the Sheep, Ms. O'Brien's wonderful woven creatures are fabricated out of multi-coloured fleck wool with colors derived from the Irish landscape. All are woven from Donegal Yarns and are available from Makers and Brothers.
