Friday Fancies

As of 4:30 today, I'll officially be on a whopping 17 day break from work! To say I'm looking forward to it would be an understatement. And of course, there's an argument to be made for tonight being the best day of it all, with the entire vacation still stretching out in front of me.

Here's what caught my eye this week, in the midst of all my holiday excitement.

My mom has an extensive Santa collection, so I was interested in getting this peek into someone else's.

A cute DIY for Christmas surprise crackers. (Not that I'll be making them any time soon. There was a past family mishap involving one of these, a shattered piece of china, and a months-long search for a replacement.)

I liked this shiny, glittery ensemble....mostly because it was inspired by a Fitzgerald cover.

I love all of the Black Apple's art. This free paper doll download would be a cute extra to tuck in with a little girl's gift.

And this article, in which some big name authors sound off against Amazon's tactics against independent bookstores, may just make you want to do your last minute holiday shopping somewhere else this year.


  1. Oh my gosh, that Christmas cottage is so beautiful! I hope you have a great break from work!

  2. I'm so jealous of your 17 day break! That is wonderful!
    I saw those paper dolls on the Black Apple blog and loved them - you're right, they would make a great stocking stuffer for a little girl.
    Enjoy your vacation!

  3. Merry Christmas, Miss B! Thanks for making my whole year brighter. Have a great vacation!
