It's about Presence not Presents

To tell you the truth, I haven’t always been into shopping or the holidays, and put the two together, well, I was a bit of a humbug. A few things have changed to alter my lifestyle and make the holidays more enjoyable. After all, it is one of the few times a year the family gathers. My husband likes to say it’s all about “presence” not presents, and I think that is a wonderful way to feel about the holidays.

While entertaining during the holidays, we like to have our homes look their best. I tend to use all my "pretty" things when family or guests are present. It's another way of giving, of being present.

Andrew Pollack is a very talented artist from New Orleans who was displaced during hurricaine Katrina. He is now offering some wonderful color schemes to his gracefully produced sake sets.
Check these new colors out now.
