During this final stretch of '06, AT is all about bringing on the new ideas with a little pre-holiday flare. Our first annual holiday Gift Bag giveaway has shown the generosity and taste of some of our favorite shops around the country (Chicago's Jayson Home and Garden donated the fantastic Sputnik chandelier last week!). Be sure to check out the upcoming gifts and shoot off an email (per instructions) to be in the running. Other AT happenings: We're excited about our search for new blogger for AT: The Nursery. All candidates for the new blogging positions are being posted on AT: NY for your feedback and comments (see Dec. 5-Dec. 8 posts so far...). And of course, the Best of Chicago carries on: Please continue to nominate and vote for your favorite shops in Chicago, which we will be highlighting throughout the rest of the month. Thank you all for helping us make AT what it is, and for your ongoing participation, ideas, and opinions!
