I guess, I am as ready as I will ever be for Christmas. Earlier in the week, I spent some time decorating my house. Nothing wild and crazy...just some garland and bows, Christmas towels in the bathroom and kitchen, and using the cards that family and friends have sent to decorate the mantle. Just enough so that I started to 'feel' Christmas-y. This year has been weird here, weather-wise, and it has not quite felt like Christmas. Then last night, we went and got a Christmas tree (it must be 8' tall!!!) and I spent the morning decorating it. So it is, at last, beginning to feel like Christmas finally! I guess, sometime this week I will have to get motivated and wrap some gifts to put under the tree too!
And as I can't help but thinking of Christmas, when it is only a week away...here are some holiday finds from my fellow BESTeam members.
This adorable little vintage Santa from Redemption Art. Such a cute Santa of Days Gone bye...yet in perfect shape! He measures approximately 4" tall. His arms open when you squeeze his back, so that he can be clipped on to your tree or gift or desk drawer or given as a gift, squeezing some "greens".

And these very pretty rainbow colored wine charms from Absolutely Kismet. These would bring some color and be ornaments for your holiday beverages :-)

Merry Christmas to all! And to all a Happy and Prosperous 2012!!!!
