Win a Fabulous and Fashionable Calendar

It`s that time of year when you must change the calendar and welcome the new year. Yes, 2010 is quickly upon us and it`s time to stylishly welcome it with a fashionable calendar from designer and illustrator Elaine Biss.

"A year in HAUTE Sketchbook" is filled with fashion sketches and quotes of fashion designers and fashion icons. Elaine has created a special calendar that pays homage to all those things girls adore as well as the best quotes on how to be an original and what true fashion really is. Not really into fashion? Then this next one is for you.

This lovely retro chic "Pleasures of the Glass" calendar is very reminiscent of the atomic age, filled with lovely recipes of cocktails and drinks, as well as the perfect party foods and toasting in 15 different languages. It even gives you a list of all the utensils you will need for your home bar! So if you are a soiree queen with a domestic diva in your title, this is the calendar for you.

Want to win one of these? Leave a comment and spread the word and you will qualify to win. We will pick a name using

Stocking stuffers, anyone?

Ah, stockings. Some would argue that they're better than the "real deal" presents that you open on Christmas morning. There's just something so enjoyable about pulling fun little items out of the depths of a big old sock!
A few of our stocking stuffer picks for this year:
- Our Vintage Christmas Candle (it can be lit as soon as it's opened to set the tone for the rest of the gift-opening).
- A charming "PARIS" magnet board - the perfect home office accessory for anyone who loves French style.
- A "Welcome Home" doorknob hanger that will delight any dog lover (especially if she has a golden lab!)
- A pretty pair of lounge pants (just roll them up and slide them into the stocking. She'll be thrilled to change out of her flannel PJ pants and into these for the rest of the morning).
- Our lovely birdcage kitchen towels (such a step up from the usual plain or plaid ones).

Do you have a traditional stocking stuffer that you give every year? Leave us a comment and let us know!
