counting down

thanksgiving is just a few weeks away, but i already broke down and posted my first holiday card item -- sad! i'm totally one of those people who never wants to leave out thanksgiving or overlook it for christmas, but i know a lot of you are already starting to think christmas cards and holiday greetings so it must be done.

we'll have even more christmasy goodies coming your way in the coming weeks, but for now i wanted to help ease you into the holiday spirit with this adorable advent calendar from pinkerton design.

such a fun way to count down to christmas! i think this is a perfect decoration for any home, and would be a fun pre-christmas gift to send to friends or nieces & nephews. look at the little illustrations you'd get to look forward to discovering:

pinkerton design is based in seattle and also features new gift tags and 14 new holiday card designs this year. all of pinkerton's paper goods are printed right in the city on recycled or FSC-certified paper with vegetable-based inks -- i love an eco-friendly company!

it was hard to choose, but this is one of my favorite cards from their best-seller list:

be sure to check out the rest of the fantastic holiday card designs before you order your advent calendar [and -- non-paper alert! -- they have the CUTEST recycled tote bags...i love!].

i'm a huge new fan of pinkerton. i hope you are too!
