For a cozy little old fashioned cheer, drop by Highgate House on Dragon Street this evening for an open house with drinks and food. Owners Dudley and Aimee Sims are just as welcoming as the space and there are lots of gift ideas—charming dishes, crosses, a wooden box. I picked up some fabrics earlier—I do hope they got their heat turned on because it was freezing this morning. By the way, I’m good with fun and food, but what’s with finishing your shopping? How about just getting started?
