It is a way to keep our loved ones with us, long after they are gone. Heritage, travels and even special recipes give continuity, love and even smiles to our lives! Creating new traditions that will continue can be great fun!!

While we make this year’s fabulous memories during these last few weeks and months, let’s consider capturing them and record them for generations to come in a chic, leather Family History Book, Photo Album or Entertaining Book, personalized for decades to come!
Gifting monogrammed or personalized items in creative colors pleases sooo many on our holiday list: host, hostess, new couples, friends, moi included!! Enjoy special initials too!
We can also plan our brilliant New Year 2023 to come with diaries and journals that will undoubtedly bring new adventures and memories! Numerous colors and types of personalization are perfect! These thoughtful selections will take a bit of time…so don’t hesitate-November is here!
Happy planning till next week!
