Winter has definitely arrived. Not only does it make me feel like curling up beside a fire (or in my case, a baseboard heater while watching the fireplace channel on my projector t.v.), but I am dreaming about all the Christmas shopping to come! This year, I am going to try a new version of shopping.
Whaaatt? But what about the 'experience' of the shop? I will admit, the shopaholic workout is key through this sweet-tooth season (shortbread....mmm), but I am going to try to mix-in some online 'Etsy' shopping. An incredible massive online store for everything and anything handmade! Jewellery, clothing, bags, baby blankets, quilts, and anything else you can think of!
If online is simply not your 'bag', visit some of your local craftsmen/women instead of Walmart this season. You will be amazed at the handiwork just around the corner at your local pottery studio or crafter's market.
This beautiful handmade pillow and quilt keepsake is an example of all the incredible finds out there (made by Carole Lazeski....aka. my mom!).
