unique gifts for grandpa It’s All About Aran Knits this Fall customized gifts for mom

The Irish Aran sweaters, with their classic cable stitchunique gifts for grandpa, are an absolute favorite of ours (and Vogue!) this fall. The name Aran comes from where they originated –; the Aran Islands off the west of Ireland. We love their intricate patterns and wonderfully classic look. The?popular cable stitch seen in many of these sweaters was actually made to?depict the Irish fishermen’;s?ropes, and was meant to wish them good luck while at sea!

I’ve been urged by a few friends through the years to write about how to sell your home fast, for the highest price possible. I’ve been hesitant to write about it because I’m not a house flipper or real estate agent, but what you may not know is that for one short year, I managed an office of over 30 realtors – in a down market. In addition, we had a lot of success selling our last home and have now purchased 5 of our own over the last 10 years. So why not?

Today I’m excited to introduce to you a new modern quilt pattern that is completely customizable! The Letter Board Quilt pattern is a fun take on an alphabet quilt pattern. Spell what you’d like and create a quilt that’s uniquely you.?
