Giving and receiving - both feel great!

I spent a couple of hours this week making this big fresh wreath with pine and spruce boughs from the yard here at Tipped. The ever-bothersome grapevine became useful as the hoop base. The pine cones were gathered by a friend. The sap gave them that glossy hard coating as they dried in their oven. Even the bow is handmade here. 

I'm going to raffle this wreath off. Stop by, maybe donate to the food bank jar on the counter, and put your ticket in the wreath raffle. 
Draw to be made Sunday, December 10th at noon. 

If you're decorating for Christmas, these locally-made table runners and placemats by SuLaTable will bring a festive feel to any room. Plus the reverse side is beautiful too! 

Reversible is the thing! These locally-made bags by ReKreations are reversible too! Made from sturdy upholstery fabrics, a portion of each sale supports the Elgin & Area Heritage Society. That makes them 3 times wonderful! 

There are two sides to every soft snuggly blanket throw! With photography by local Sandra Lee Randle on the top side, you can settle in with your favourite book for a cozy evening. 

Speaking of books…you might want to pick up a copy of Daniel's book for a contemplative look at life. Inspired by a dramatic downturn in his health, he shares what he learned by climbing from the depths of those days and how you too could make every day your best day. I love having works by locals here in the shop! 

Tipped offers you so many ideas for gift-giving. Puzzles and games are a fun way to spend holiday time and it seems every family has at least one puzzler. 

Short on time? Need help gathering ideas? Want to make a great impression? I'll put together a custom gift basket of items in the store, something you'll be proud and delighted to give! Drop by, send me an email, or give me a call, and let's make it happen. 

Whew! Got all the tree sap off my hands,
Trish at Tipped
