3 Awesome Things at Tessa Clogs!

First Awesome Thing: Glogg

    It was great celebrating this Christmas making turns on the fresh snow, in Blue Sky on Vail Mountain. The sky was bluebird in the morning and quickly turned into a flurry by the evening, leaving new deep powder for the next day. It was nice coming off the mountain and enjoying a nice warm cup of mulled wine. I had never tried Glogg before, and thought it would compliment the menu for my holiday party. We added some red wine, let simmer, then added some brandy, this simple and delicious mixture was a hit. Glogg is now my staple for cold weather dinners, and my go-to on these cold, snowy evenings.
Second Awesome Thing: Custom Jewelry
    Tessa recently dropped off some more items to add to the collection of hand stamped charms. I have been working on getting different combinations online, as well as individual charms to personalize your own jewelry. The hand stamped charms are created in Minturn, CO - the same spot that Tessa customizes her unique clogs. The ability to choose your own charms, made this a thoughtful and popular gift this holiday.
Third Awesome Thing: Sale Items
    We have just updated our inventory of sale items. Check out new markdowns from clothing brands, including Desigual, Van Deurs, and Asha. Clogs on sale include the popular Extreme High Red Lily Sandal and the High Heel Natural Cow.

Gift Ideas at Swedish Clog Cabin- God Jul

We have just recieved a shipment of Swedish goods, just in time for the holidays! If you have never tried some of the treats in the store, you can also order them online. My favorite, Ballerina Cookies, are white and chocolate cookies, with hazelnut cream inside. Also, enjoy a warm glass of Glogg, a mixture of spices to add your favorite libation.Here are some gift ideas from the Swedish Clog Cabin.
Tomte, Dala Horse Cookie Cutter, Swedish Book, Glogg
     After recently moving, I decided to give myself a few things to make my home more välkommen. Eklund Linens, Dala Horse cookie cutters, traditional ornaments, and bearded Tomte figures add a warm touch. As stocking stuffers for my roommates, I am going to customize a charm bracelet, the charms are hand-stamped by Tessa in Minturn, Co.  Last year I gave my mom clogs, this year I will send her some new snap straps, a custom Dala Horse, and of course chocolate! Some Knee High Wool socks will keep me warm, and pair well with the Traditional Heel Stapled Clogs.
