Making a list . . .

Checking it twice . . . Gonna find out who’s naughty or . . .

Oh, hello there! I’m going shopping.

Wanna come, too?

You do? That’s great!!! ๐Ÿ˜€

I don’t know about you, but I need to make some progress on my Christmas gifts. Let’s hop on over to etsy and do a little browsing, shall we?

Hmmm . . . Ornaments are always a nice present!!

Gingerbread Personalized Christmas Ornament

Anybody here love gingerbread people? This little one does.
Talk about adorable!!! Only 2-1/2 inches tall! Hand sculpted design, polymer clay. From Buttonwilloe

And look at this beautiful purse!

Little Blue Birdie Winter Wools Repurposed Blazer Bag
This stunning bag will take you all through winter into spring. Made from “UpCycled Wool” obtained from re-purposed clothing. The artist hunts through local thrift shops and friends closets for fine quality wool garments, brings them home and washes them in HOT water. The process is called fulling. The wool from this bag was retrieved from a nice wool blazer! From PineBlossoms

If thereโ€™s a young lady on your gift list, chances are sheโ€™d love a pretty winter outfit for her doll.

Crocheted Three-piece Holiday Poncho Set
This set consists of poncho, hat, and purse. Itโ€™s crocheted for an American Girl Doll using an acrylic blend yarn in a holiday cranberry with a gold metallic thread that adds sparkle. The set is trimmed in extremely soft white Bernat Boa eyelash yarn. From lavenderlore

This next item is one of those gifts that you’ll want to buy TWO of – so you can keep one for yourself! ๐Ÿ˜€

Felt Mitten Pin
Imagine how adorable this little mitten would be on your winter coat! Or you could use it to anchor your scarf while dashing through the snow on a bright winter day! Lots of hand embroidery, beads and a pretty button embellish this mini work of art. It’s 100% wool felt, all hand stitched, and measures just over 2 1/2″. From beedeebabee

And finally, what’s a gift without a festive tag?

Vintage Style, Victorian Inspired, Saint Nick Gift Tags
Old St Nicktags
These pretty tags will be kept long after the gift is gone โ€“ especially if you jot a special little message on them. Made on high quality ivory card stock, with a touch of red. A very realistic victorian style image is printed, and the sentiment has been handstamped. The edges have been shaded with a coordinating ink for a vintage look. Burgundy satin ribbon ties. From frenchcountry

Well, this was a good start but I’m not finished, so I’ll be browsing again soon. I hope you’ll join me again next time! ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I love to go shopping with you. Lets take a moment and stop for a cup at that quaint little bistro right over there. Bet they have scones to go with the brew.

    Didn’t you just love those little clay ornaments. I especially liked the turtles.

    What little girl wouldn’t love a poncho for her doll. All those tiny stitches!

    And I am so glad we stopped at Paulette’s. I absolutely adore her pins. I keep wondering how she cuts such perfect small flowers. I just love her work.

    Well, we better get going. We’ve got more shopping to do. How many more days till Christmas?!?

  2. I had fun shopping with you this morning! I love beebeebabee’s beautiful pins! And I went to the other ETSy stores, too…including yours! I wish someone would give me a gift certificate for ETSY, don’t you? We could have all kinds of fun!

  3. Scones? Did you say scones? I LOVE them!

    Oh Carol, you’re so right; we need some refreshments after all that shopping. It will give us energy for another round (or two!). ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Only 42 days until Christmas!

  4. There you go again, being a major SWEETIE PIE!!! What a delightful surprise! You were so sweet to include my pin in with your lovely Christmas picks! Thank you so much Crystal! xoxo I loved our shopping trip…I wish your were nearby, so we could really go together… all of us ladies who stop by your lovely blog, would have such a fun time together, with you leading the way! … I haven’t started my shopping yet, but I’ve got my list made out, and I’m going next week. It would be soooo great if I could do most of it before Thanksgiving! My sister has already asked me to go with her the day after Thanksgiving. We got up really early a few years ago, and we had such a great time, crowds and all! It’s just the season, that makes it all special! Sending a BIG HUG, Paulette ๐Ÿ˜‰

  5. Please come shopping again! I must thank you for featuring my items! You trully are my beading fairy. And also thank you for this wonderful idea: I will be making up a Gift Certificate for my Etsy Shop. How ingenious!

    I hope you’all have a wonderful week end. I am baking an Eggnog/Chocolate Cake today. Can’t wait!

    Love, Claudia from FrenchCountry

  6. I just posted my own “Making a List”. I KNEW I remembered seeing that title somewhere. Now I remember. It was here. ๐Ÿ˜€
