cliche but true for me. i met my husband at this time of year and the memories i have of that christmas and new years' eve are magical - they really do sparkle with christmas lights. :) this will be my last post until after the holiday. i hope you all have a happy one! from top to bottom: "little green houses" by copperinc, "a man with strong eyes" artbyelizabethbauman, "ferris wheel no. 3" by feaverish, "waiting for the rain" by prettylittlethieves, "letters to you" by paperiaarre, and "grapefruit mint blend - soy wax candle" by oakmoss.

i came across this photo of mudpuppy's "little white house" this morning and thought how beautiful such a simple concept can be. i am hoping to do a lot of relaxing by the fire and even painting in my studio over christmas break. lots of hustle and bustle here in the city at christmas time which is fun - but also a little hectic and crazy. it will be nice to be in vermont slowing down for a bit. only one more week of hustle and bustle to go! hope all of you enjoying the season as much as i am. p.s. see my treasury "olive you christmas time" for more simple christmas time beauty.

oh, the weather outside is frightful...actually, it's really beautiful here in boston today - about 50 degrees or so, and sunny! it feels very strange. i'm not letting the weather interfere with my christmas-time enthusiasm, however. i came across a couple of these absolutely beautiful items this morning while browsing etsy over a cup of tea. i have a new treasury percolating, :). from top to bottom: "vintage minimalist - three light bare bulb pendant" by kamlampcompany, "haus ornament set" by filzfelt, "low wide coper man ray verity" by jillrosenwald, "feathery" by ifihadwords, and "let it snow typographic cutout christmas card" by pocketstudio.

can you believe the christmas season is officially upon us? i can't, but i love holiday time so i am pretty excited. anyway, in celebration of etsy's cyber monday promotion today, all giclee prints in my shop have been reduced by $7! in combination with free shipping, that ain't bad. make sure to take a peek at etsy all day long (and i know you all will) for lots and lots and lots of handmade holiday bargains.

it is absolutely pouring out there! i like these kinds of days just as long as i can stay inside and drink tea (unfortunately this is not one of those snuggly days. i have to go out there!). each one of these images feels like a bit like the snuggly kind of rainy day that i like. from top to bottom: "pale irritrievables" by heidiburton, "approaching storm" by katemerrittdavis, "heavier and heavier" by antonyxujin, "itty bitty rain cloud ring" by catherinemarissa, "wow rainjacket" by emilykatz, "rain" by kellyakinart, and "reign o'er me" by thephotozoo.

so here i am scrabbling together another treasury (i don't think scrabbling is an official word, is it? well, if not it should be), and again i am musing that those little treasury boxes are too small to show off some of the amazing finds here! i know i have posted some of these shops before, one or maybe even two times - OK maybe three - i'm guilty. but what can i say? i have my favorites, :). without further ado, from top to bottom: "giant brandy snifters" at uncommoneye (aren't they fabulous?!), "fox on black no. 1" by feaverish, "i heart you" by courtneyoquist, "1960s wool hat in cocoa" at jessjamesjake, "hummingbird 3 - 4 x 4 panel print" by mincingmockingbird, "organic french pet lobster shirt - dijon" by xenotees, "vintage letter W or M" at bluebellbazaar, "vintage wine plaid 60s wool dress coat" at the brand new missmodish, "personalized bowl in gift box" by twotreesbelgium, and "cranberry suede and wood stacked heels" at thrush.
