Shopping Small & Maybe a wee bit bigger, A Gift List

From this gorgeous bag 
(for an incredible assistant)

something to fill this barely blue cup,
shared with an old neighbor 
 Darjeeling 2nd Flushwith 
for the ladies

 under a ready-made tableau
for busy parents

 for their little chubby cheeked boy

 and his learning to sew big sister
for a splurge on a mom who would never 
in a million years buy this for herself

for my friends, the cooks, my favorite new cookbook

for all the lovely grower of things

to brighten up someone's kitchen  
(from one of my favorite illustrators)
mailed to faraway friends...
for charitable Mainers and keepers of bills
(we're still giving $5 from every purchase to the 
Food Bank for New York City 
through the end of December!)

make this via Erin (photo too) for everyone else

and more: a gift with purpose for a brother
 with intention for a good friend 
with MacGiver-esque love for a husband 
for the intrepid, but plugged-in, traveler
locally grown delights for anyone

Hope you like my little list--there's still lots of time in my estimation. Well not LOTS of it, but you know.
Buy Local at the Brooklyn Flea all weekend beginning
Friday 2-9pm,
Saturday and Sunday 10am-5pm
