I’m so embarrassed. Having just returned from two months abroad, I completely forgot that Thanksgiving is this week. People keep calling to wish me a happy t-day and I’m thinking they are rushing things because Thanksgiving is on Sunday. But no, I’m wrong. It’s like tomorrow.
With that being said, I’ll resume posting on Monday, November 26th with more discounts from our sponsors, a few home tours and interviews, and other goodies so stay tuned. Enjoy your family time and remember, egg nog isn’t half as good without rum.
2 oz light rum (or more, you little devil, you.)
6 oz milk
1 tsp powdered sugar
1 whole egg
Shake all ingredients (except nutmeg) with ice and strain into a pretty glass. Sprinkle nutmeg on top and serve. Need I say more?

I read about American ceramicist Stephanie DeArmond over at Happy Cavalier recently and had to introduce you to her work. It’s obviously a play on giving traditional objects a cheeky new lease on life. Almost how the Dutch design things.
I like the cursive fonts, the colorful motifs, funny words, and that although everything is a precious ceramic, nothing looks too precious – in fact, it’s a bit edgy. You can view more of DeArmond’s work on her website. Definitely not a trend follower, this lady is a trend setter – it’s so unique. I can see this showing in some hip San Francisco-based store like Rare Device or Rose + Radish, and not to leave Boston out, Koo de Kir or Pod.

Fabulous Stationery is one of the online leaders in paper goods, has a celebrity following, and soon to launch a retail store in Philadelphia. It’s exciting to see them continue to grow and expand as a small business turned, well, not so small. For one week only, they’re offering readers a 20% discount on all cards, minimum purchase is $50 (before shipping), and if you spend $150 or more, they’ll include a luxurious two-tone gray pashmina with your order. The code upon checkout is decor8save20 and expires on November 28, 2007.
A special thanks to Fabulous Stationery for extending us this rare offer – you won’t find another offer code on the web for their paper products, so this is our lucky day!
UPDATE: They just introduced USPS for international customers and it’s about 75% less for shipping than UPS was to international locations before, so if you’re outside of the states, no problem – shipping is a breeze!

Ah Nicole. You know how to get to a girl. She designed stationery with my name as an example of how cute her Pink Loves Brown personalized stationery looks all done up nice. You can customize most of her designs, so your stationery can be to your liking if you don’t feel like posing as me. :) And this graphic designer, home reno pro blogger, all around talented lady (have I made you blush Nicole?) is offering us 25% off everything until November 28, 2007. Enter decor8 upon checkout.
My favorites: Marquee (of course), The Periodic Table of Sentiments greeting cards, Paper Airplane (nice gift for a jet setter friend or for a little boy to encourage writing letters to grandma, a somewhat lost art), and Penmanship (my favorite design because I still remember learning cursive handwriting in 1st grade and my wonderful teacher).
Thank you Nicole for this special offer and have a nice vacation!
P.S. A good friend and fellow blogger asked me about these discounts I’m running and if I get anything out of the deal – compensation, percentage of sales, increased readership, etc. This made me wonder if you have similar questions — so I’ll address this now. No! Nada! Nothing! Okay yes, I receive the same discount offered to you, but that’s it. No special treatment, no jump in readership, no % of sales, nothing. Why bother, you ask? It’s my very small way of thanking you for reading decor8 when there are now so many design blogs out there, I appreciate that you stick around and join me here each day, supporting me and those I write about. :)
