Queenie's Treasury

Good morning, my lovelies! I hope you're all recovering nicely from your Thanksgiving festivities. I am on my way home to NYC today - cross your fingers for me that that the travels are calm and quiet (last year we sat in the Jacksonville airport for 6 hours).

This week's treasury will hopefully help you get into the holiday spirit, in case you, unlike me, haven't been binging on a diet of Christmas music for the last 24 hours. First, an awesome advent calendar roundup from Design Crush. If you haven't bought yours yet, it's not too late! I'm seriously considering downloading the one from mibo studio.

From How About Orange comes my favorite gingerbread man ornament of ALL TIME. It may be dark, but it's funny as hell. Whenever I look at it, I can't stop laughing. I am seriously considering whipping one of these up for a friend who shares my love of the perverse.

Do you have a typewriter? Well, then, here's a holiday party invite idea for you, courtesy of The Haystack Needle blogger, Jen. Using paint samples as stationery, Jen typed out invitations to her recent housewarming and sent them off to her friends. The paint samples are a natural choice for a housewarming, but a set of them in the same colors you're using to decorate for Christmas, Hanukkah or New Year's could be pretty dang cool.
