NOV 1st

Uncommon Gifts

Psst…It’s that time of year again.

Whenever we reach November 1st, I start into “Holiday” mode.

I always have high hopes for myself in June.

I tell myself it will be different this year.

I swear, I won’t have another Christmas like last year where I’m wrapping gifts frantically and buying anything I can find as a last minute gift.

Sorry about the paperclips last year Mr. V…In retrospect, probably not the best stocking stuffer.

Anywho.  This year it CAN be different.

I’m going shopping in one of my favorite catalogs:

Uncommon Goods

A lot of their offerings are handmade by independent designers and artists and I love to support that idea!

Of course I’m giving away one of my secrets.  If you’re on my list then pretend you didn’t read this post.

Truly, people have said to me…”what an unusual gift, Amy!”

Here are some of my favorites this year:

As always- what I would like most for my family and friends is something that money can’t buy…love, peace, good health and joy in their lives.

What would I like most this year?  Time.  Time to be with everyone I care about.

Best wishes my bloggie friends for a peaceful holiday season!  I know I’ll still be wrapping at midnight while Mr. V puts together the latest Barbie House or Princess Castle…

But a girl can dream, can’t she?

What do you want most this year?
