I get into "Christmas mode" as soon as Halloween is over.
And if I wasn't already excited about Winter and the Holiday Season approaching, I definitely am now, especially after spending a few lovely, relaxing (and inspirational) days in New York.
Visiting some of my favourite stores like Pottery Barn and Anthropologie & the fabulous Christmas Tree Shop and I couldn't wait to get home and display my new finds.
The weather has been gorgeous and hopefully will continue so we can start some outside decorating this weekend. I'm looking forward to seeing the house all lit up with twinkle lights.
Each Christmas I try to make something special to let each person on my list know how special they are to me & create a little package that is a gift in itself. A few packages are leaving the country, and a few won't leave the house :-)
Dawn @ The Feathered Nest is always so generous with sharing her gorgeous vintage images & she posted a few that I fell in love with & they became the focal point in the gift wrapping. I like to make little tea/coffee stained tags , stamp a special message & attach the tiniest of bells with a little twine.
A walk with Archer always has me coming home with pine cones and leaves and twigs, and these nature finds are being incorporated in my artwork.
