Goodness- there is a lot of great Christmas stuff out this year! I have been reading about everyones wonderful holiday stuff, so I thought I would share a few great finds. I have to tell you, my heart skipped a little beat when I saw those gorgeous tins! Where did I find these gems? Of all places, I found them at Joanns! AND they are on sale. Really good sale. Check them out- they had a good selection- but I think these were definately the winners in the bunch. I made a trip down to Walmart last weekend. I don't usually go to Walmart. I think of myself as more of a Target gal, and the Walmart here is so far so it's not worth it to go. However, they are one of the few places that carry the "King Leo" brand of peppermint sticks every Christmas, and it makes it worth the trip. They are these incredibly soft sticks that just about melt in your mouth! They remind me of those wedding/baby mints- you know what I am talking about? Those pastel-y ones? Anyway- I of course, could not avoid going to look through all the Christmas garb, and was so glad that I did. How darling is that little reindeer bell? I'm telling you. It's cute. Even cuter in real life. Not fake life. And it's Walmart, so that little guy was only $1.97. You can't beat it. It would be very cute tied to the top of a present or hanging on ye olde Christmas tree. Its got a little hole punched out- so it'd be a cinchy cinch! And the candles are just dreamy. They came in a set of 3 and are gorgeous all lit up.
On to shop news: Last weekend Etsy decided to upgrade their shop and it looks like they are having more problems than they anticipated. Hence the delay in the shop opening. I also wasn't planning to sell Christmas stuff, but I've been bitten by the Christmas....elves? bug? reindeer? And been working away... so if Etsy is not up & running in the next day or so- I will start selling directly on the blog this weekend. Items will be first-come, first-serve. Hope everyone is having a lovely day!
Oh one more thing. I have to share this hilarious picture. Chris got up early with Henry a few weeks ago and when I got up & came out, this is what he was wearing:
The belt ON TOP of the pajamas... HILARIOUS. He looks like a little old man, his belly just popping over the belt. It makes me laugh so hard everytime I see it. So so funny-
Have a good day!
