Oh yes, as lovely as they are, I think most of us
feel a bit under pressure.
Cleaning, decorating our homes, shopping,
cooking, eating-too-much!
I try to keep it simple with food and gifts, but I love decorating
my house and table with greens, pine cones, gourds, candles.......
and of course fabrics.

My go-to source for last minute sprucing up is
our Home Decorating remnant tables (how convenient).
 Perfect for covering
anything less than beautiful in my house.

No matter how simple the gift, it's always nice
to wrap it well.  I'm a big fan of our sheer ribbons
(the ones we tie around customers bags).
They just look sooo yummy in a bow...layered...
mixed with several different colors and widths.
Makes even a gift of coal appreciated! 

So many new things have been coming into the store.
Here are a few of my faves:
"Pin Up" from Alexander Henry.
Snazzy pj's or a pillow case for your sweet heart.

From Joel Dewberry 54" home decorating weight cotton sateen.
Think cushions, valances or freshen up an old chair.  

"Cherry Christmas" from Aneela Hoey
very sweet 

Fantastic new Collections from Art Gallery:
"Splendor 1920"

Great clutch from Indygo Junction.
This one made with 2 sqaures of wool felt.

 Elegant Winter from Moda.
Perfect for a quick tablecloth. 

Banners are quick to make and very festive.
The most simple can be made with felt, scissors and glue,
but it's not too tricky to take it up a notch either.

Gotta have one of these...
Feed The Animals coin purse.
Cute, easy...
fill it with money - great gift!

 Fun Dots

 Gorgeous new wool from designer
Derek Lam.

No time to make anything?

See you soon!
