The Gift of Gold

The spirit of the Christmas season is rooted in generosity and kindness. Giving to others, whether they be family, friends or those in need, always brings warmth and joy. Finding the perfect gift that will delight youngsters, parents and the grands is one of our favorite traditions. Giving is really the bright side of Christmas.

Made is the USA Christmas Gifts – Part III

We hope everyone had a wonderful feast with quality fellowship with family and friends. We kept it extra simple this year and truly enjoyed the holiday. After lunch, we surprised Georgia with a live tree and new Christmas ornaments. She was thrilled and we spent the afternoon getting in the Christmas spirit.

Did anyone shop on Thanksgiving? Or Black Friday? Have they created a new term for shopping on Thanksgiving?

Our last featured Made in the USA business is Knob Creek Metal Arts. Daughter’s youngest sister-in-law is a young, hip 20 something and is known (lovingly)  in the family as a bookworm. Daughter found the perfect gift for all of those heavy, thick books!

Knob Creek Metal Arts

Knob Creek Metal Arts is based in Louisville, Kentucky. While Daughter adores their sarcastic Nerd bookends, they also sell coat racks, wine racks, welcome signs, all with a slight weirdness. They can also design and create custom metal artwork, contact them directly for more information. The bookends were the perfect weight, not too heavy. The Nerd bookends were the laugh of the day and much loved by her sister-in-law.

Knob Creek Metal Arts

If you have a family member (or yourself!) who could appreciate a piece of handcrafted metal art with some personality, this might just be the perfect gift. Until January, Knob Creek Metal Arts is running a 15% discount, check their website for more information.

Here are some of our favorites:

For our last Thanksgiving Day project, we created these {DIY} Painted Dinner Napkins. Now we are ready for fried Turkey, garlic Mashed Potatoes and Pecan Pie!
