twelve days of christmas...

with little more than twelve shopping days left before christmas (and i have yet to begin my shopping or stitching!), i thought i would take a deep breath (and calm the inevitable stress i create for myself by waiting until the last minute) and pour through my etsy favorites.   so, here are my twelve days of christmas... how i enjoy feasting upon the loveliness, all while remembering:

"it came without ribbons. it came without tags.
it came without packages, boxes or bags. 
and he puzzled and puzzled 'till his puzzler was sore.
then the grinch thought of something he hadn't before.
what if christmas, he thought, doesn't come from a store?
what if christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?"

~ dr. seuss

so, i'm taking a bit of a break today to spend time with my family, including a trip with my niece and nephew to visit santa!

Thanks for including my bust in this oh so lovely collection. It is definitely one of my most favorite things in my shop.
