Welcome to the extended version of my weekly newsletter, House Call (and if you aren’t subscribed, what are you waiting for?). This is where I spend some time pondering a theme, answering a question, and helping you shop smarter—or at least find some new inspiration. Reach out if you ever need recommendations. I’m happy to search the internet for the most specific furnishings, decor, and knickknacks.
It’s hard for me to feel the end of year spirit until my OOO auto-reply emails start going out. Right now I am full steam ahead in getting ready for the year’s end from deep cleaning the house to finally mailing out my holiday cards—and everything in between. So until I take a real break, it’s hard to manage time to reflect. But what I do have time to reflect on, especially since the gift giving season is at its peak, is sharing some of my favorite favorites from the year of House Calls.
If you’re trying to think of that perfect gift for your best friend or a handy doodad for your brother, here are some great suggestions. Happy holidays, happy New Year, and see you in 2022!
