I know for many people the day after Thanksgiving is for shopping, but for me it is the 1st day of Christmas...time to put the Christmas music on, bring out the Christmas quilt, hang the wreath....well you get the idea!
I went looking for Christmas items on Etsy and WOW did I have fun :)
The first and most important part of Christmas for our family is the celebration of the birth of Jesus, so Nativity items are an important part of our holiday decorations....Look at these amazing Wisemen I found!
Need something festive for the table? How about these hand created Flower Clusters...fabulous as a stand alone display item, as a grouping or hung as an ornament...(I know how special these are because I was the fortunate recipient of 2 of them...WooHoo!)
And while we are on the subject of ornaments....I decorate one tree with only vintage items.....and there are lots of vintage choices on Etsy but these from Romania really caught my eye....I love the colors!

Have any of you ever wondered how to display the cards you receive...especially those with photos of family and friends? Look what I found...how clever is this????
Red Metal Card Holder
Do you have any one on your list that collects Christmas pins...or do you???? Found one! I especially like this one because it is a pine cone branch...a little different from the typical Christmas tree pin :)

Here is something else I found that has so many possible uses....decorating a mantel, table, tree, package, or....whatever you can think of.....tiny, glittery, Moravian stars....Hand Created!
Green Moravian Folded Paper Stars
Need some gift bags? Now these I love, in fact I love them so much I bought some...from my sister...because why should I spend all my time trying to create what she already has! And the truth is, I could never hand paint those leaves...just sayin....
Red Gift Bags
Oh Dear, I can't forget the luscious smells of Christmas.....how about some hand made soap to put out for your guests....(I know, it is really for us but pretending it is for our guests sounds better!) And look at the color...this looks as good as it smells :) Besides all that...the name is great!
Hippy Christmas Soap
Well, I think this blog is done for today....hope you.....
Have fun clicking on the name beneath each photo, and while you are in the shop, look around some...each of these sellers has other great items!
