This time of year, especially here in Connecticut, is all about getting cozy.
Temperatures have dropped, leaves (oh my god...soooo many leaves) have fallen, and before we know it, there will be snow on the ground.
So when GlobeIn, a San Francisco based company that delivers themed collections of artisan-made products from around the world, offered to send me their cozy box, I was excited!
It recently arrived, filled with a scarf from Thailand, cocoa powder from Ghana, a hand-painted mug from Tunisia, and a handwoven box from Oaxaca. The box also came with interesting stories about the artisans and farmers that produce them:
I knew just the spot for the handwoven box.
I've put it outside in our guest house and filled it with fire starters and kindling for our guests to use in the fireplace:
The scarf is now a staple in my wardrobe to help complete my outfits and keep me warm.
You can never go wrong with basic black:
And some hot chocolate made from the cocoa powder from Ghana is now my nightly dessert.
Don't mind if I do!
And while I love using the Tunisian mug for hot chocolate, I'm going to use it as a holder for our colored pencils in the office.
