NEW! Holiday Velvet Plush Pumpkins

Velvet Plush Pumpkins are one of our signature finds in our LoveFeast Shop.  These beauties are worthy of keeping out beyond the fall season because of the attention of quality in the hand-stitching, the sourcing of quality, artful stems and the lush softness of the fine quality velvet. All of our Holiday Pumpkins, including our regular sets of  Velvet Plush Pumpkins are 15% off for the entire month of December. PROMO CODE:  HOLIDAYPUMPKINS15 We pulled together 4 sets of Velvet Pumpkins that we think would look lovely … [Read more...]

Gingersnaps with Crystallized Ginger

Some friends, we live vicariously through. Our next guest, Amy from Poor Girl Gourmet, is one such person. Oh what we wouldn't give to follow her around her garden and help feed her pigs. We'd love to sit at a table and talk to her about her cookbook, gleaning her tips for low budget gourmet meals, especially if that table was in Montepulciano, Italy where her and her husband host culinary tours. Yup, we want to be her! Please welcome Amy... When it comes to holiday baking, I’m more cake-baker and bread maker than cookie … [Read more...]

Traditional Christmas Cookies

Our next guest is one of the most joyful bloggers we know. Her blog, her writing, her life, exudes and spills over with pure, unadulterated joy. We hope to meet her in person one day. We just know she's the kind of person everyone needs in their life. She moved from the south and now lives life to the fullest on her island. She has two very important men in her life, her husband and her Doogan. She loves to wear flip flops year round, is enamored with the color pink and (even on her About Me page) is in love with sugar cookies … [Read more...]

Family Lifestyle Photography Tips

The truth is I made this photography sitting at the last minute just a few days before this shoot. The photographs from this post are not the finished products, by any means. Between my youngest son and myself we managed to capture some of the "behind the scenes" of our lifestyle photo shoot, while wrangling the dog, searching for the flung pink headband and wading through the knee high grass.  Here are my tips for a Family Lifestyle Photography session that will be enjoyable for your family and will produce some great … [Read more...]

Gluten Free Citrus Sugar Cookies

Sabrina, from The Tomato Tart, is one super generous gal. She spends her life loving her friends, living life with her husband, creating, exploring and embracing the world around her! She is one of the first to jump in and put her talents and passions to use to bring awareness to the needs around her. In March 2011, she motivated others to raise over $8,ooo for those who were devastated in Japan through an online Bake Sale. We love having her at our table today. My dad was a cookie guy.  If I close my eyes, I can see him … [Read more...]

We don't know about you, but shopping for HIM can sometimes be difficult. Aside from the traditional ties and power tools, what do you get the men in your life?

For the Tech Guy: I found these iPad cases at a local handmade market and loved the texture of the waxed canvas. For the Musician: The musician in your life will feel righteous with this guitar strap … [Read more...]
