Since we were snowed in all weekend, I finished up most of my Christmas shopping online. Though I love Etsy and Amazon Prime....what I would give to shop via this 1957 National Bellas Hess catalog! Let's see....I would like to order the electric tree with bubbling lights (page 42), a box of argyle socks for Pat's stocking (page 2), a chenille robe for Lizzie (page 4), the happy 'n cuddlesome Humpty Dumpty for my studio (page 9), a perma-bend doll with pink dress for Lizzie (page 27), oh yes....annnnd...add on that economy carriage for the bend-y doll from page 38. Also, I would have to sneak in one of the 6 room steel dollhouse with the add-on family (page 40). This would be a present to myself of course ;) And lastly...a set of those "day of the week" undies as a more useful stocking stuffer. So let's wrap all this up....if I added correctly I've spent a whopping $27.32 + shipping which adds an outrageous $.51. But...if I spend $35.00 the shipping is free so what else do you think should I add to the order?

We had a low-key holiday weekend....just the three of us. On Thanksgiving we began putting together this Autumnal puzzle and surprised ourselves by finishing it the next day. The tree was set up and adorned with all our old favorites and this collection of new-to-us vintage glass ornaments. I cannot resist a steal on Ebay! Lizzie talked us into colored lights this year so our tree is a kaleidoscopic wonder and we love it :)

Today is Thanksgiving Day here in the States. I know so many of you visit this space from all over the world (thank you Google Analytics!). Today I want to say thank you to each and everyone of you who take time to stop by and take a gander around this space and my Etsy shop. Thank you for your support of my work and your notes/emails/convos of encouragement. Thank you for the surprise packages of goodies you send my way. To an artist and a mama who works from home....these are the little things that make my day, inspire me and keep me going (that...and coffee!). So today....I wanna say...I am grateful for you.

It's all about toys this time of year! I've been compiling lists of toy ideas for the kiddos in my life and I need to get cracking with the shopping. Anyhow...toys have been on my mind and this new grouping of holiday art blocks goes right along with that theme...dolls, wooden blocks, nutcrackers, trains and of course the man who makes all the magic....Mr. Santa himself.
