A Smattering of Stuff

That’s Making Us Say “We Like It!” This Month

Texas Tree Trimming

The Texas State Capitol 2020 commemorative holiday ornament celebrates the 25th anniversary of the Texas Capitol Ornament program. This year’s design was inspired by the statehouse’s south façade and pays homage to the first ornament designed in 1996. This keepsake is finished in 24k gold and features the Capitol dome and south entrance. The ornament’s proceeds benefit Texas State Capitol preservation and educational programs for over one million annual visitors.


Fresh and Festive

The Spa Girl Spritzer Gift Set is perfect for holiday gift-giving, hostess gifts, or keep it for yourself for stay-at-home happy hours! The limited-edition set was created in collaboration with one of my favorite cocktail ingredients St-Germain, the world’s first artisanal French liqueur made with freshly handpicked, wild elderflowers. We mixed up their simple recipe of club soda, Spa Girl cucumber, and St-Germain. The cucumber paired with St-Germain offered or sweet and refreshing twist to an otherwise savory flavor. The three-piece kit includes a 750ML bottle of Spa Girl Cocktails Vodka (Peach, Pear, or Cucumber), a 375ML bottle of St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur, and a 1-liter crystal cocktail carafe.
