Tre Sorelle’s Favorite Things

“When the dog bites, when the bee stings, when I’m feeling sad, I simply remember my favorite things and then I don’t feel so bad.”

{I can’t help it…yes, that quote is from the classic The Sound of Music}

We’ve remembered our favorite things of 2011 {all at a reasonable price…in fact, today’s list is 5 gifts under $50} to bring a little bit more joy to the season of giving!
