Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all who celebrate it!


Hope your holidays are filled with family and friends and love and wintry goodness!


Or - at the very least - adorably skinny reindeer.

We had planned a lovely feast with friends for this evening but had to postpone because of snow, snow and more snow. But, we're cuddling in, watching Christmas movies, drinking hot chocolate and enjoying ourselves anyway! Hope you are, too.

Finally putting up some of the hats for small heads.

A pillbox for your little pill. Or a sweet hat for your sweetie. A flowered head topper for your little flower. Aaaand scene.

And I also finally finished up the custom orders on deck and got to start something new for the shop! I'm excited to finish that and show it off...

My weekend haul.

I enjoyed a very fruitful day on Saturday. I was wandering about a store, lost and unable to find a cart when the rockingest Lancome lady ever gave me her cart and a free gift with purchase - without purchase.

If that wasn't awesome enough, I scored the most perfect red nailpolish. Ever.

Then we wandered outside the store to a mini Christmas market. A friend had told me earlier in the day that she had found The Most Incredible Chocolate in The Universe. Well, she said, at least, I stumbled upon a booth selling chocolate with a sign on the wall that read "The Most Incredible Chocolate in The Universe".

But, can you confirm this?, I asked. These are the important things in life, folks. And, yes indeed she could. So, having found the mini Christmas market, I once again wandered about lost and in search when El Niño asked what I was looking for. The Most Incredible Chocolate in The Universe, son. A lady looked up, pointed down the way and said it's two booths down on the left. Ha ha ha, that's some chocolate.

The proprietor informed me that I could melt three chocolates in a cup of hot milk for delicious hot chocolate for the kids. Shhhhh!, I said. I mean, really. The kids are thrilled with Nestle. And this IS The Most Incredible Chocolate in The Universe.

New hats!

I put some new hats up in the store today!

I've been wanting to create a hat with some but not too much slouch, and I love the way this one came out.  I like the delicate look of the spaced stitching. While it might not have done the trick for us this morning at a bracing 10°F/-12°C, it would be just perfect in less hardy climes.

I made this hat a while back and I wish I could remember just what I did. I'll have to play around to recreate the look!
