Don't Hassle Me, I'm Local! by Lady of the House

One of our dear readers made a comment recently, and it's been on my mind. She said she hopes to shop locally in the New Year, meaning Target may not be her first pick. This is a challenging resolution, but really worth the effort, I believe. Supporting local businesses fosters community, benefits 'mom and pop,' and makes life a little sweeter.

And life is bound to be sweet when you hear about Sugar and Flour, an online bakery in the Milwaukee area. The gal behind this shop churns out a seemingly endless array of darling sugar cookies, iced to perfection. From butterflies to rocket ships--you are SO set for your next shindig. She'll be accepting Valentine's Day orders until February 5th, so pay a visit to Sugar and Flour, and send some local love. (All photos courtesy of Sugar and Flour)

  1. these cookies look fantastic. i wish i could eat them!! thanks for sharing =)

  2. Wow, beautiful cookies. I would love to try this one day but I am not that artistic. Cookies really can be a work of art.

  3. Wow those cookies look beautiful! I definitely try to shop as local as I can. I really think it's important to help our local farmers out!

  4. Not only does she do awesome cookies, she is about the sweetest person! I nagged her for some decorating tips, she took time and wrote me a long email detailing her decorating process! She's so talented and soooo nice!
