I wrote a comment on Swistle’s Milk and Cookies post the other day about my holiday motto: Keep it simple; keep it special.
And really, that’s what I’ve been trying to do.
And you know what’s helping? Ordering gifts online- and then getting the double whammy of Christmas cards AND packages (albeit not for me) each day. Nothing says Fa-la-la-la-la like some good old fashioned snail mail!
Well, and the secret to my success is that I’ve also ordered a few things for myself. And I still have a few things I am looking for.
Each year, we buy one more “nice” holiday decoration, around $20 or so. This year, I decided I wanted to buy an actual tree topper, since what we’ve used other years is laughable at best.
I can’t seem to find one that I just LOVE… so I’m looking for suggestions. What do you put on top of your tree? Angel? Star? Santa? Something else? (Bonus points for links to where I can buy one just like yours! And then we could be tree-topper twins!)
Related: Here’s a list of Etsy shops that I cannot stop drooling over (though I couldn’t figure out if it was legal to add images… so you’ve only got links; so sorry!):
*Scrabble Tile Art Pendants
This girl swinging is adorable!:
Ooooo, and I love the dandelion one too!:
*Pillow! I wish I could create something this adorable!:
*Wall decals… I am swooning over nearly every selection in this shop, including:
*This gnome hat KILLS ME DEAD:
*Finally, I could have sworn she had a Etsy shop, but all I could find was her webpage. This necklace is by far my favorite:
Well, looky there. A Christmas list, including links, for David. I am wicked smart! (Two birds, one stone etc.)
(What are your favorite Etsy haunts?)
