Printable Thanksgiving Table Activities

Happy hearts and full bellies is what we’re shooting for this Thanksgiving season. And man-o-man we think we have nailed it this year. Well, at least the happy hearts part that is (I’m relying on Paul for my family’s full bellies.)  Anyway, since I’m not contributing to the cooking (or ever will), I wanted to contribute to the festivities. So, we’ve come up with a set of table games to keep everyone occupied, from bored children, to hangry teens, to the honored elderly we think there is a little something for everyone in this line up to keep all satisfied until that tryptophan kicks in!

New in the shop: Christmas decorations

You may have seen our recent line of wrapping paper but have you have you seen our ornaments and holiday decor yet?! In case you can’t tell we are in the Christmas mindset here at Lars, sugar plums dancing in our heads and everything. So, it only made sense to embrace the Christmas feels instead of suppress them. And embrace we did! Starting with wrapping paper and leading up to so much more! Including these ornaments that we have decided would look lovely on each and every one of your Christmas trees (especially with that Lars wrapping paper underneath *wink* *wink*).

Christmas Home Advent Calendar

‘Twas the night before Christmas…Okay no not really, I know it’s not Christmas yet, but we are getting very excited for the Christmas season. The lights, the colors, the crafts what’s not to love?! However, one of the things I love most about Christmas is the spirit of excitement, glee, and giving that floats in the air. As we near the day that it becomes socially acceptable to countdown to Christmas the Lars team decided that we could use a little reminder to keep that true Christmas spirit around and help us not get caught in the snare of a commercialized Christmas. And thus 2019’s advent calendar was born. Read on →

Mary’s New Leather Sofa

Some of you may recall a post I wrote a while back about My New Green Sofa. Well, this time around I wanted to talk about a little something called Mary’s New Leather Sofa, or, as we’ve come to call it, the big comfy cozy couch. Seriously, it’s great! I could nap on it for days (on one or two occasions, I might have even done just that).  Read on →
