A Happy Handmade Christmas

With 16 days left until Christmas, Etsy vendors are all a buzz with lots and lots of holiday goodies to brighten your home and hearth. How do you sort through the tons of offerings, piled high like presents under the tree? The mind reels, but that's what we bloggers do...sort through them for the coolest gifts that might catch your eye. Check out these wonderful vendors while we still have shopping days left. For those procrastinators (like me, lol) who haven't sent out their holiday cards yet:

Having a soft spot for crochet (I am self-taught), I fell in love with this beautiful handmade Christmas tree ornament and so will you:

And who isn’t attracted to shinys dangling from a tree? I’m not immune to their magic and neither will you be when you see this pretty bauble:

With holiday parties in abundance, we all need a pair of pretty earrings to match our ensembles. These reminded me immediately of poinsettia flowers:
