Couple of things that caught my eye today:
These beautiful bags from this shop.
I saw this on Fab today, and it just made me giggle for some reason. A cat reading a book. And then they said in the description that it was reading a tale of two kitties…hehehe.
So this elephant isn’t red, but I made a red with tiny polka dots version the other day, and it was so cute! It would make a great last minute gift, if you would like me to make one for you! (wink wink)
When I first heard of Fab, I thought, oh great, another one of those sites that will send me 500 emails. But I was wrong. They are awesome. I get to see all kinds of products and designers I wouldn’t normally see. And they are cool. For instance, I probably wouldn’t have seen these beautiful prints if it weren’t for Fab:
I volunteered to be in charge of the gift donation drive at work this year. I “adopted” some kids from a local organization, made the little angel tree with the ornaments, and waited. Pretty soon, we had mountains of presents, and a bunch of donated money to buy the rest of the gifts.
I went to the mall this morning to search for a pair of shoes, and a kind of perfume, and an iPod, and other little gifts on their lists. But I hope it wasn’t really “things” I was buying. I hope that I spent that donated money to help the kids feel like someone cares about them. That someone is on their side and thinks they deserve to be happy.
It makes my heart happy that some people are good, and remember what Christmas is for.
He loves hot chocolate, but just can’t have too much! (new in the Little Amaryllis shop)
I was looking at the Christmas angel tree for the Salvation Army, and there is one little boy who stole my heart. He is near 5 years old, and likes Spiderman and toy trucks. These little trucks are adorable. If the boy is still on the tree tomorrow, I think he should be ours!
