Gifts for All the People in Your Life and How to Wrap Them

Can anyone tell that we are really in the Christmas spirit already? CAN IT JUST BE CHRISTMAS YET?! Okay, actually, no not really because that would mean I would need to be done with the one thousand things on my very long very extensive checklist, however, thanks to Tuesday Morning that checklist has become noticeably shorter. A few weeks back I found myself feeling that holiday rush, yes, I know a bit premature but this is what happens when you work in a field where you start every season 6-8 weeks early! Feeling the pressure I found myself wandering into Tuesday Morning for what I can only describe as the happiest shopping experiences.  (Click HERE to find the closes Tuesday Morning store to you!)

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 →

One of my very favorite family traditions has been our yearly Christmas card. It’s that rare time of year when I can get Paul in front of the camera to document our family’s growth. Pre-photo generally tends to be a little stressful: organizing outfits, finding a location yadda yadda, then there’s the actual time in front of the camera which usually looks something like us bribing Jasper with some type of treat to get the shot (zoom in!). But man oh man the joy of looking through those photos once Jane (our in-house photographer) sends them back to us is twelvefold. Read on →

Wrapping paper in Lars’ House!

New Christmas wrapping paper from The House That Lars BuiltAnyone remember a few months ago when I talked to you on Instagram stories about the idea of wrapping paper in our shop? Well, you were all so encouraging and enthusiastic about the prospect of Lars Wrapping paper in your home this holiday season that we went ahead and created the line!

The line was design by the lovely Monica Dorezwinski (check out her prints in our shop!), but final decisions were made by the members of our Lars family (i.e.: you guys!) via Instagram stories. We were neck and neck on a few designs but these guys proved victorious and each ended up winning by the landslide!

DIY Custom Christmas Stockings

For years I’ve been planning on making stockings for my little family, but I never managed to scrape out the time. Before I knew it, a year would come and go and my stocking dreams we postponed for another year. But not this year! I suppose Jasper added some additional motivation, and I finally sewed up a batch of stockings for the Jepsen Family. I referenced a really simple and clear tutorial to create the stockings with some fun graphic fabrics. To jazz them up a bit, I embellished them with embroidered vintage trims and ribbons. The combination of folk with punchy patterns was just the look I was going for! I used customized ribbon to identify each stocking and I love the way they turned out! Read on →
