The ending of the year is a lovely time to take a deep breath and reflect on the experiences that have passed before we rush to move forward into yet another new year.

The turmoil of current events and an increasingly cluttered world can too easily get us down. But if we were to remain there, we would be ignoring the vibrant world around us. With the warmth we receive from friends and family, and the healing beauty of nature that surrounds us, our world is a wondrous little place.

What would we do without family and friends? As you’ll see from our year, we rely on them. Let us celebrate the magic of friendship and camaraderie. At times like this, we pare down where we must, help where we can, and band together. Continue reading

There are many ways to make a hot toddy, which is basically a hot spiced whiskey drink. In Scotland they call it a hot whisky. It’s warm, it’s soothing – the perfect way to cozy up on a cold winter day. Here at Walnut, we know all about whiskey – and winter weather.

Our home on the North Oregon Coast is rainy, windy and gray for much of the year. Dramatic winter storms, roaring winds, and crashing surf make for atmospheric seaside visits followed by warm-up drinks back home.

Every year, we like to share with you a family favorite recipe. This year, we thought we’d share three different variations on our favorite winter drink from everyone in the Walnut Studiolo family. Continue reading

More than once, we’ve been surprised to find how little information there is about leather – as broadly diverse a natural material as fabric or wood. We can’t wait to tell you more about it. What would you like to know?

We’re writing a free educational series. Help us write about what’s most interesting to you, by filling out this brief, one-question Google poll: Continue reading

It is so entertaining to bring along games when traveling or on an adventure, but often there just isn’t enough space to pack all your favorites. That’s why our Travel Cribbage Board packs a mighty game-playing punch! This robust little item offers endless hours of fun, it’s durable and it slips neatly in your pocket.

The gorgeous leather exterior protects the board, and the pegs tuck neatly inside.

The Travel Cribbage Board is one of our most popular gift items and there are plenty of options for expanding the board into an extra special gift.

Here are a few ideas. Continue reading
