Holiday Give & Get: Annie Selke of Pine Cone Hill
Annie would love to get: Bungalow 5 Callista Gold Mirror
And would love to give: 1. Pine Cone Hill Sheepy Fleece Robe in Pebble 2. Drops of Jupiter Aqua Gold Earrings 3. Blabla Anemone Doll 4. Barefoot Dreams Ribbed CozyChic Throw Blanket

With a penchant for color, texture and pattern, Annie Selke founded Pine Cone Hill and Dash & Albert Rug Company, a collection of linens, rugs and accessories that have woven their way into homes as beloved staples. Her vision of American design comes alive in her products and more recently, in her new book, Fresh American Spaces. Today Annie shares her “give” and “get” lists for the holidays, along with a favorite memory from her childhood:

My favorite family holiday tradition is… My favorite and most vivid holiday memory was hanging and opening stockings at my grandparent’s house in Bedford, NY. Instead of what most consider traditional holiday stockings, my grandmother used to cut pairs of panty hose in half, one leg to a person and hang them on the wooden fireplace mantel. They were seemingly insignificant when hung, but when we would come down in the morning to see what Santa had brought, each stretchy stocking had taken on its own unique shape, dictated by the presents held within. A dime and a tangerine were at the bottom of each stocking and there was always a stack, usually of books or games, under each stocking that the stocking just couldn’t accommodate. We would need help getting them off their nail as the stockings reached from the top of the mantel down to the floor and the weighed quite a lot! I remember my stocking being taller than I was and just loving opening each individually wrapped present and enjoying the tangerine at the end!

Give like Annie…

My favorite family holiday tradition is… My mom purchased puzzles every Thanksgiving weekend – 5000 piece puzzles that our normally loud family would circle round, intensely unified with one end purpose in mind, to finish that beastly puzzle… together. As a teenager, I couldn’t wait to get out of it, but now I realize it was about time spent together and shared moments. Today, even separated by the continent, my Mom and I are so lucky to rely on “Words With Friends”, keeping our gaming tradition going strong!

Give like Wendy…

Kathy joins us today share what’s on her “give” and “get” lists and tell us about one of her favorite holiday traditions.

My favorite family holiday tradition is… I would have to say my favorite holiday tradition is Christmas Crackers at the holiday table. They originated in England and I was first introduced to them while we were living in Australia. Sometimes referred to as “poppers” they are wrapped in foil and almost look like giant candy. Inside, they always have a paper hat, joke or riddle and a small toy or trinket. They POP! when you pull them apart. We all put the hats on and take turns telling our jokes. Something about seeing a bunch of adults in silly paper hats, makes kids laugh. My kids are nearly grown now, but they still look forward to it.
