13th December 2011

I’ve always wanted to do a 12 Days of Christmas gift package, this is my slightly less literal take on the idea.

A Partridge in a Pear Tree

Hand Turned Wooden Pear, $16 from Urban Turn
Here’s the pear.

The partridge they can take care of themselves.

Six Geese A-Laying

Flying gets the swans there so much faster.

Eight Maids A-Milking

Aluminum Wood Milking Stool, $179 from West Elm

Nine Ladies Dancing
