The Holidays are right around the corner!







So I just saw a Christmas commercial on tv. The first one of the season. It left me with two thoughts.

1. holy crap I better start shopping

and

2. mmmm...holiday pancakes at ihop (since it was an ihop commercial)

So according to my *calculations (*disclaimer I was terrible at math) we only have about 55 days of shopping until the big day! Yikes. If you are like me...you have 4 zillion peeps on your list and not enough time or money to adequately compensate them all for all their wonderfulness throughout the year. So. We need to get cracking if we are going to make this thing happen.

My first thought. Etsy. Why? Because I flippin adore it. So I am going to just post randomness (ya I know...that is usually how I post) when I come across something cute. BUT. I need something in return. I need ideas back from you. I need ideas for kids, sisters, mothers, aunts, uncles, dads, grandparents...I need it all. So please. Help me out!

Thank you.

Now much like Oprah...I am going to post some of my favorite finds...and that is pretty much where the the similarities between Oprah and I end. We both like "things"...oh and neither of us fit into our good jeans:)

Please keep in mind that I have not purchased any of these items yet...I just think they look real purdy on my 27 inch computer screen.

- This darling doll...I love her...she looks just like my four eyed chick

-these tea towels would be a nice gift for a teacher

-a cute tiara headband for a lil princess

-these extremely cool tattoo pillow needle point kits for the cross stitcher in your life (whom you must really love because they are not cheap)

- some beautiful
bangles
because who doesn't like bangles???

-and this farm table because...well...I love it and I got a little kooky in the wish list catagory:)

Now it's your turn. Find me some stuff!
