First some business... I know there is a big white space at the bottom of this post and I have spent the last hour trying to fix it.
so please pretend I meant to do that. 

Thanks to everyone that commented on the ornament post...also good going to those that just went ahead and used what they had on know that is just our style!  There were so many who posted comments that I decided to give away two of the little prize bundles. 
So congratulations to the winners!

 Okay, now on to today's post

I have been having a great time browsing the Internet this year looking for Christmas presents.  I am loving what Etsy has to offer, so many good vendors out there as well as other Internet sites and shops.  I put together some of my favorite things I have run across in my searches...things I love and I think you will too.  Enjoy!

Please Be Still
Etsy shop
love the saying, matches the workroom colors, just the right size, need I say more?

Papaya Lux Tote

Gotta love the tote.  I mean who doesn't?

Paper Source 2011 Calendar
I love anything letterpress and this calendar is no exception.  I had the 2010 Paper Source Calendar on my desk this year and loved it.  I love changing the pictures each month...and I haven't thrown any away either.  Wonder what I can make?
Twine sampler
If I can't have an entire spool of each I guess I can settle for this.

Anything from Parcel
Faerie Wonderland Theme Box

 Messenger Bag
Okay, this is not a tote (well sort of, maybe, no definitely not)

That Funky Boutique - Cashmere ruffle rose scarf
Don't you just love the color?  In fact all her scarves are beautiful...the red, the grey, the blue....
Spool and Sparrow
Linen Denim apron
Loving the half apron...loving that she hand block prints the fabric at home and then create the apron (and other items)
Okay, I know it's another tote bag but Deb and I saw this one in Dillard's and we both loved it.  In fact we loved pretty much every single thing Fossil had to offer, from wallets to make-up bags to leather purses.

...and for all who ordered the spool card kits...they are in the mail!  Now let us all say a pray to the postal gods that they arrive when they should, I mean have you seen the snow in Minnesota?


  1. Congratulations to the lucky winners. How generous of you to double the giveaway. I love all of your etsy picks. Happy shipping! Happy Holly Jolly Joy...

    And I'm off to order some of that yummy twine and check out Parcels! Thank you for the ideas!

  3. Yippee!! Kits are on they way!! Did I already say, YIPPEE? Looking forward to getting mine.

    Thanks a lot!!


  4. Wow! Look at all of those packages. Can't wait to get mine. Thanks for the shopping ideas.

  5. Congratulations to the winners!
    Thank you for all the eye candy, I am going to the shop to check some out.

  6. My first time to your blog - and it's fabulous!! Thank you for sharing my demi striped apron. I guess those Google alerts actually work! I thought I might mention that I just activated a coupon code for 20% off orders for items currently listed in my shop. The code "DecEtsy20" is active now through Saturday. And, as your readers well know, your kits are divine!
