Sock Monkey Christmas Santa

Sock monkey is in the holiday spirit...and I can honestly sing, Baby, it's cold outside. I found this link for sock monkey original socks and dolls supplies here by Fox Sox.

I read the cutest article in the Washington Post newspaper today by Emily Matchar. Young women today are going back to domestic bliss. Making their own jam and learning to knit. It's empowering because you have some sort of control over what you wear and what you eat! Yay!

She tells about a 31 year old Brooklynite who left her desk job and today her life is more like a 19th century farmwife. She soaks dried beans, dries herbs, bakes bread, feeds her chickens and keeps bees on her apartment roof! She is frugal and happy and now makes a living teaching diy (do it yourself) projects and writing. Wonderful. There is a big movement in dazzling diy that Emily is writing a book on the subject called New Domesticity.
