A red beaded maple leaf ornament from Hudson’s Bay is my only new ornament this year. At least that’s the plan. If I ever do find those Irish snowmen (a set of three each playing an instrument) that will be a different story. But, this shiny maple leaf should be pretty on the tree.
I really like this Xmas stocking I noticed on Etsy. But, with shipping added, the price is more than doubled. How does that work? Shipping must cost sellers a lot of sales on Etsy. In this case, it likely isn’t the only Christmas stocking made in this style. Not even just looking at Etsy shops.
Found on Hanna’s Charming Christmas (not an English language site).
The stocking has pockets in the back, for stashing little extras. A wonderful way to upcycle fur, real or fake.
Originally sold at ThinkGeek but no longer available there (according to the site).
Reminds me of the wonderful green trillium my Mother and I found at a construction site. This brooch comes from Fantasyard.
Found on Pumpkin and Parsnip, Etsy. – Now you have something you can do with all those pennies you can’t spend any more.
Also from Retro Festive, but currently out of stock.
Found this advent calendar and I like it so much I went to the site to see what the cost would be, with shipping. Amazon has it for over $200 but at the site it is about $60 in Canadian money. So, I thought I was being smart to order from there. But… they don’t ship here. A note pops up telling me to try another shipping address. Well, that isn’t going to work out so well for me. Why not just say they can’t ship it. Most people don’t have addresses other than the one they are ordering from.
Anyway, that was disappointing. So, I’m just posting the link and the scanned image from the site.
