Christmas Shopping Count Down.

It is now November 9, how is your Christmas shopping going? I was browsing through Etsy this morning and came across this super cute red cape. What a wonderful gift this would be for a little girl who likes to pretend she's in a fairytale. The owner of the shop, Charlene, will even make a Big Bad Wolf hat to go with it! How fun is that! You can find this hooded cape at crochetedbycharlene . This is a great Etsy shop that specializes in crocheting. Charlene has over 200 crocheted items in her shop! I am eyeing up a nice plastic bag holder myself, since the pastic bags have taken over the floor of my pantry. So join me over at crochetedbycharlene and check out all the great handmade items. Maybe even cross another name off that shopping list.

Well, it is November and the holidays are sneaking up at us. This is the time of year I really start to get into the spirit. I start watching Christmas movies and thinking about how I will be decorating the house. I start planning the Thanksgiving meal. I so enjoy hosting Thanksgiving. The day just isn't the same without a big turkey and lots of family and football. Thanksgiving has always been special to me. I remember when I was a child that was the holiday we always spent with my Dad's family in the U.P. of Michigan.
This is also the time of year I get serious about making gifts for family and friends. I love giving handmade items as gifts. To me they seem a little more special. If you don't have the time or talents to make those handmade items, but still love them a great place to find them is on Etsy. I recently found a lovely Etsy shop that has some great gift items. The shop is magdamagdaFashion. This is my favorite scarf. I love the colors. You can even pick from different colors. This scarf is only $9.90 and very low shipping of $2.90. This would make a great exchange gift for those family and work parties! I know I would be thrilled to receive this beautiful scarf. So, head on over and check out magdamagdaFashion and check a few items off your holiday to do list.
