Holiday House Tour -- Manchester, Vermont
Saturday December 5 and 12, from 1 - 5 pm
Ticket price is $15.00 per person

I should have been a real estate agent.  I love touring the inside of homes and
taking in the details of way they are decorated, painted, and how items are
displayed. House tours are the cure for anyone with this obsession.  This
weekend (and next) head on up to Manchester, Vermont and tour historic and
other lodging properties. Each home is beautifully decorated for the holiday
season and will offer a special treat for guests. Tour tickets include a "pink bag"
filled with special holiday shopping coupons from local businesses. Proceeds
from the inn tour will benefit the Vermont-New Hampshire Komen Race for the
Cure.   For more about the properties and what the tour includes visit:

This Week's Stories:

Travel: From Manhattan to Manchester (Vermont), with Love
So, you are a Manhattanite who can’t afford a summer share in the Hamptons, are
Long Beach’ed out and need an escape from the city before cold weather.  Don’t
fret; a fabulous weekend is a short car ride away!  Pack your overnight bag and
head to Manchester Village, Vermont – one of New England’s greatest overnight
getaways and you don’t need snow or foliage to enjoy it...

Garden: Caring for Poinsettias
Poinsettias have become synonymous with the holiday season. In fact, December
12 has been proclaimed by an Act of Congress as National Poinsettia Day to
commemorate the death of Joel Poinsetta who introduced this Mexican native
plant to the U.S.   

Recipe: Holiday Rosettes
This delightful holiday recipe compliments of the 1785 Inn & Restaurant, North
Conway, NH.

The Frugal Yankee Tip of the Week

Now is a good time to buy cranberries. Throw 'em, bag & all, into the freezer for
later use. Besides cranberries, check local stores for deals on nuts, flour, sugar,
& condensed milk. Good time to stock up when prices are low.
