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.

i have been hard at work on some new teeny tiny paintings that will soon be listed in my etsy shop. "home sweet home" is one of my favorites so far. when i was growing up i lived in an old colonial that really looked quite similar to this little house. in the backyard we had a big old catalpa tree with a swing. oh, how i loved that tree! it will always feel like home to me.

i know it's early for this, but i thought i'd just attempt to generate a little wintery holiday excitement. most of these shops are new to me and a couple are old favorites. i found so many pretty things for this post that i expanded it into a treasury on etsy. take a peek if you get a moment, :). from top to bottom: "vintage christmas in connecticut coat" at nodtomodvintage, "little chickadee" by naturemandalas, "gray gloves" by moocowhandknits, "ghost elephant on organic alternative american apparel tee" by rctees, "winter III" by helengotlib, and "trio of russian blues" by jamieshelman.

each one of these various items are either of vintage age, or created from recycled or upcycled materials. so smart & so pretty! holiday gifting with a conscience. from top to bottom: "bignews recycled note card" by onewomanstudio, "slate gray mink 1950s hat" at nikitajade, "chunky scarf" at vaisto, "5 mini notebooks with upcyled pages" by marmalime, "news clouds" by tungnut, and "college town gray shift" at veravague.

happy monday morning to you. one of my favorite shops - baboucherouge - is the inspiration behind today's post. felicita sala has designed a gorgeous limited edition set of christmas cards that are individually watercolored by hand. there are two sets to choose from, each has the same imagery but the colors are slightly different. better scoop these up quick! as well as the other wonderful gypsy inspired items that are all available on etsy. from top to bottom: "christmas card pack B" by babouchrouge, "gypsy mystique - antique sterling sliver filigree ring" by midnightgypsy, "beyond - gray trench coat" by cocoricooo, "sanguine noir earrings" by katinkapinka, and "gypsy wind" by kimdow.
