holiday fun

well the holidays are over and the kids are back home in texas.  it was such a wonderful time with my daughter and i loved watching the relationship they have developed as husband and wife.  they've been together since high school, definitely with their ups and downs and they stuck through it, both knowing they were meant to be!  they married in june, purchased their house in october and now we're all talking about the babies to come.  i get so excited thinking about when i get that call!!!

i did alot of xmas shopping on etsy this year so i thought i'd take this opportunity to share some of the goodies that were loved by all who received them. 

tracey is one of my favorite photographers on etsy, i love her work and own some it of myself.  she's such a nice person to work with. my daughter has plenty of wall space in her new home to fill up and she loved these!

and of course i also gave her a few of my photos as well...LOL!

they smell yummy!

she makes the cutest bags (it's my second one i purchased) and very well crafted.

a girl can never have too many bags to hold all kinds of goodies and trinkets and this one is just so fashionista!

this is a pill case and she has all kinds of fashion gadgets full of beautiful art and vibrant colors...

this was a set of 5 postcards.... what stockings would be complete without a great pinky shot!

i got the yellow one with brown writing to send my daughter a little love.... a nice very pleasant seller with super fast shipping.  a perfect little bowl!

my hubby has a thing for acorns and he was delighted to find these tucked in his stocking!

i've admired lauren's work for quite some time so i used this opportunity to get this for me....

and to wrap it all up, i used these holiday gift tags and gift card holders sent digitally... very vintage pretty!

so i hope you'll take a moment and browse through these great etsy shops.

i love supporting handmade!
happy new year to all
and to all a good night!
