iNSPiRE | Aedriel Originals

••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••
THiRSTY THURSDAY
defined as a day to...
share something...ANYTHING...
that makes my mouth water...
quenches my creative tastebuds...
satisfies my thirst for inspiration...
or leaves me "creatively parched"
and ultimately wanting for more...
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

Dear Santa...
I've been a pretty good girl this year.
So I was thinking...
You know how much I'm in the kitchen?
The place I never seem to leave?
And you know how much I LOVE baking...
typically treats for my family and friends as long as I don't eat them myself.
And you know how I do my best to make dinner for my family every night?
as long as it doesn't cut in to any precious baking time & if I don't order pizza because I'm too tired to cook.
Well I would be SUCH a happy girl if you'd kindly
bring me one of each of the following...pretty please.

I pinky promise your Christmas cookies will never be store-bought again...




Oh...
and Santa...
I'm seriously in love with all of the hand-painted gorgeousness from  Aedriel Originals!
Like these...

Santa...
Can you see why my sleigh bells are ringing?

Well...
surprisingly...
although this letter screams may seem to be all about "Me! Me! Me!"...
I'm actually writing to share with you something I'm completely excited about...
the beautiful tradition I'm starting this year...



I'll be filling up one of these gorgeous Aedriel Originals plates with some homemade deliciousness...
and then I'm going to pick a special someone to give it to.
The idea is for the receiver to then refill the plate and pass it along!
Brilliant, selfless idea, right?

Thanks for listening Santa.
I know it's such a busy time of year for you...
so I appreciate you taking time to assure I receive these much-deserved gifts read my letter.
Our family is looking forward to your annual visit!!

Merry Christmas!!

P.S. Please tell Mrs. Claus I adore her and I'm still waiting on her Christmas cookie recipe.
Also, let Stuart know we can't wait to see him...
and give Rudolph a "fist/hoof pump" for me!

In all seriousness my friends...
I'm SOOO in love with these beautiful things.

It's not surprising Aedriel Originals has been featured in some fabulous places like
Martha Stewart Weddings, HGTV.com, Apartment Therapy, 100 Layer Cake and so many more!
Her most recent feature was in Southern Weddings Magazine.

I hope you've been inspired to add something from Aedriel Originals to your Chirstmas Wish List...
or perhaps you've found the perfect gift for me someone on your Holiday Gift-Giving List. *wink*

Not only does Aedriel create lovely hand painted items for your home...
she's also quite a lovely person on the inside too!
Remember me introducing her to you in this post?

I encourage you to connect with her...I promise you'll be inspired:

My mom wants one of the plates to start the "Give - pass it on" plate tradition in her workplace...
LOVE that idea!
I'm pretty sure she was trying to hint to me she wants to be my first "receiver" of the plate. *wink*
Love you Mom!!

Great review...I mean "Christmas List". (Wink) I love your mom's idea...it's fantastic and so needed in this crazy world we live in. I'd love to do the same thing once I move. (Next month)

Jessica,
I just love the uber cute cupcake pedestals! I am thinking about getting a few for myself. The whole Aedriel Originals website is just fantastic. I also really like the idea of the Give-Pass It On Plate.Thank you for sharing these wonderful treasures.

Ann and Kelly...I'm thrilled you love these Adriel Originals items too!! The Farm Table Collection is definitely my favorite "me" gift...and the "Give" plate is something I can't wait to fill and "pass on". Thinking I'm definitely going to get my kids involved to see who they'd like to present the plate to. I'll keep you updated.
