Julie is an adjunct English professor & she seemed very envious when my daughter, mother & I went on a trip to Massachusetts to see the mills at Lowell, the Minute Man at Lexington & Concord, the Wayside house museum, &, specifically, Orchard House in Concord. So, we decided that she & I would take a trip & see Orchard House & bash about Concord. We had a lovely tour of Louisa May Alcott's home, browsed through the Concord Museum, & bashed about the small village of Concord. In one shop, Julie found some adorable cookie cutters that screamed "buy me," & so she did. The owl tea cozy that caught her eye gave me an idea for the Christmas gift I will discuss here.
