Naughty or Nice?

 Have you ever wondered how Santa knows who is naughty and who is nice? The Elf on the Shelf® – A Christmas Tradition is the very special tool that helps Santa know who to put on the Naughty and Nice list. This interactive holiday hide-and-seek tradition is perfect for children and families of all ages.

My daughters love our elf and look forward each year to his return to our home.  Usually they find him perched on a wondow sill, the mantel or an actual shelf.  But what happens if the Elf HIMSELF decides to get into mischief???  Look what we found on Pinterest...

Recife Pens from France are Modern Classics and Tres Chic

These modern Scribe pens from the Riviera Collection of Recife, France, are made of proprietary resins from a renewable resource, The look is simple and “clean”, yet it has a particularly weighty, balanced feel as a result of the solid brass interior. When you are ready to write you “pop-off” the round tip-protector and snap it on the back of the pen with a satisfying “click”. The ceramic roller-ball produces a controlled black ink flow as responsive as a fine art drawing instrument.  Replacement ink cartridges are also available and very easy to install.

Cooler Weather Calls For Cooler Socks.

My husband often points out that men have so little opportunity to dress "outside of the box" at work.  The standard trouser and button down shirt that have become the new norm in most casual office-wear can indeed be embellished but has to be done in a tasteful and slightly subtle way.  A cool tie, unique cufflinks or an outstanding pair of sock perhaps?  These inspired graphic masterpieces are comfortable, well-made and just the right amount of "surprise" for any occasion.

Dark Chocolate AND Red Wine...Yes Please!

Dark chocolate and red wine are two of the most delicious treats for the palette, no?  So imagine a chocolate that has been blended SPECIFICALLY to pair with red wine.  The founder of the concept is a cardiologist and wine lover who didn't like the idea of serving cheese -- tragically not a particularly heart-friendly food -- when hosting wine tastings.  Tasked with the quest for the right dark chocolate -- a more healthy option -- to serve at his tastings he found that he could find none that had both the perfect texture and flavor profile.  Thus, the birth of BRIX.  Delicious.

Just in Time For Summer, Classic Del's Lemonade Candles are Back...

When I moved to Rhode Island I was immediately smitten with the refreshing citrus yumminess of Del's Frozen Lemonade.  The lemony flavor and perfectly slushy texture are a big part of Ocean State summers.  So it is with great delight that HOMESTYLE once again has Del's Lemonade candles!  100% soy, made in Rhode Island, packed in a convenient tin.  Delicious!
