All I want for Christmas...

but, won't be getting. LOL! Bryan and I decided to pass on Christmas gifts for each other this year. With the economy as bad as it is and some pay mistakes made by the military, things are tight. This year, it's just gonna' be for the kids. Well, the kids AND all of the family that we have to buy gifts for. But, if we were exchanging gifts, these would all be on my list...


Bebe Moon mostly sells adorable baby goodies. But, I love that tree trunk pillow. I suppose it would go nicely in Hazel's room, but I think I'd rather keep it for myself. ;0)


Love this little necklace from Block Party Press. Truth be told, I love all of their stuff. Lots of woodgrain, people. It's a good thing.


Lauren Alane. Man, that girl can felt! Her little owlies are the cutest things ever ever! But, you HAVE to be Johnny-on-the-spot because almost as soon as she updates the shop, her little creatures are sold out. I've signed up for her e-mail list, known about the last couple of shop updates, and have yet to get my hands on one. SHe updates again in November. I'm determined to be there.


Life With Tigers was a new store to me. I came across it while searching for mushroom-related items. Their shop is full of fun stuffies. Definitely into the Etsy faves.


Oh, Little Odd Forest, how I love thee. Every last little thing in their shop is right up my alley. But, these tree trunk coasters are the bestest.


More cute little toadstools from Morninglori.


The gal that is muntedkowhai makes some fabulous crocheted necklaces. I think this one has to be my favorite.


My Imaginary Boyfriend is full of lots of felt goodness. Who doesn't need a tree trunk pin cushion? I know I do. They also have some amazing log pillows.


Doesn't it look like a little gnome could just come running out of there at any second? Petite House makes these adorable, well, petite houses. It's another one that you have to RIGHT THERE at shop update time. Again, I've always missed out.


Of all things on my list, these owls are the top of the top. The materials they're made from... wow. No two creatures are alike. They're from Skunkboy Creatures.


Last, but not least, this cute print from Stephanie Dos Reis. There is actually a whole set of fun little kitchen prints that she has. I want them all for my, um, kitchen.

Looking back at this post, I'm sensing some sort of woodland theme (aside from the toast print, and the crocheted necklace). I guess that's just what I'm into these days... without even realizing it. Ah... Etsy window shopping. It's good for the soul. Wouldn't you agree?

ohhhh... thank you for all the eye candy on a Monday morning. Even though we don't have kids, we haven't done Christmas gifts for each other FOREVER. Instead we put a little money asides and shop after the holiday when EVERYTHING goes on sale. It's a great day together and we usually get something we wanted or needed.

Those are all so cool! I think that log pillow was the best.

Ever seen Twin Peaks? The Log Lady? That show got on my nerves after awhile but sometimes, what doesn't? Ugh.

You have fantastic taste! I loved looking through all of those finds....

Oh, my stinking hyperlink doesn't work on the 'new and improved' version of Typepad, be glad you didn't switch, I had to get in touch with Sadie to fix mine and stuff is still screwed up....
