#’s 14 & 17… and some interesting gifties

Yesterday, I tried to NOT take the closest parking space.  I really don’t have photo evidence for this one, so I guess you’ll just have to trust me on it.  I’ve decided that while I used it as part of my calendar, I will try to do this for the whole season.  I have two very functional legs and parking far away is a whole lot less stressful anyway.  This pic is from this morn:

Thank goodness I have a small car so I could park far away although slightly illegally

Today there was a HUGE holiday craft sale at Wings Stadium.  I do like me a good holiday bazaar.  I think it’s in my blood – my mom started a VERY successful holiday sale in my hometown, Christmas Cottage.  I like how Christmas Cottage works.  Everyone’s stuff is tagged with a number and intermingled.  Then the members/artists walk around the sale helping people.  This helps to avoid the awkward, “I just want to look at your stuff but I don’t really want to buy it” moments when the vendors are standing behind it.

Holy craft show Batman! And this is only 1 of 3 areas

The following are some of the nutty things I found but did not buy.

I don't think this pillow case would help me sleep peacefully
Haha, this made me laugh - you can't see them well but there is ribbon attached to the waste band

I know, I really missed out on those!  But I saw these and just loved them – I didn’t purchase as they were a bit $$.  People are so clever!

This is a burlap material - I REALLY liked them
You could spell anything you wanted - the letters were very creative. I have her card and will post her info

I also hit up World Market and Target and I am exhausted!  Great scott, Christmas shopping is hard work :)  I have decided that I when I get married I’ll do all the shopping as long as my future hubby will give me a shoulder massage when I get back.  By the way, I could have spent a lot more money in World Market – what an awesome store.

And finally my bucket list item for today is winter bedding!!  It is getting pretty cold here and I absolutely LOVE to fall asleep with my window open all snuggled down in the covers.  Flannel sheets definitely help with this!  Isn’t fresh bedding a true luxury?  Love it!

Yay! Warm, snuggly bedding awaits me!

I’m off to paint my toes a festive holiday color.  Don’t worry – I haven’t gone off the Christmas deep end.  The color is “coal” :)
