christmas time...is near.....

well, i'm finally starting to feel like christmas really is here. it has taken a little longer for some reason this year. but the nativity is up,




the stockings are hung (handmade from last year)



and our tree is trimmed. our spindly, sparse tree. oh how i love it though.




now, i just wish we could get a little snow instead of rain for christmas.

angel chimes


oh, how i loved these swedish angel chimes when i was small. i remember getting so excited when they would come out each christmas. i thought they were truly magical. i obviously still do because when i spotted them on sunday, my eyes nearly popped out of my head.
when i moved to vancouver years ago from ontario, i didn't bring anything with me (seriously, just a duffel bag) so we have been slowly building our christmas stash. when i called home last year, asking if i could have some of the old christmas stuff, i found out that most of it had been given away. that's right, the little putz christmas village, chimes, my granny's old, german looking reindeer-gone. it was sad news.
although, on the bright side, it has been really fun finding/making new christmas decorations that we can use to make our own family traditions!

update-an elephant and owl were just added to the shop

shop update


i will be doing a small shop update on sunday december 9th at 11:00am (PST). it will be small, about 4 animals but they will each have a new, japanese fabric! plus, they will be ready to ship, meaning that they will arrive in time for the holidays since monday is the deadline to get orders out to the US. (oh, canada post, don't let me down...)
see you there!

a big thank you!


a big thank you goes out to heather at dooce.com for including my little bear cub on yesterday's daily style page. such kind words were said and i love hearing that she has them 'nestled' around her desk, so great! it makes me SO happy to hear that they can bring a little joy to someone!
since my shop was a little low in stock, i've been sewing like mad to get more made and re-stocked. keep checking because i'm adding a few at a time as i go. i know that as long as they are in the mail by the end of the week, they are supposed to arrive in time for christmas (that's what the post office told me....)

i also have a whale and an elephant for sale at bleu-lulu . while you're there check out some of the other great stuff she has!

thank you to everyone that has given a little animal a new home and keep checking back if you missed one, more will be popping up soon. have a lovely, winter's afternoon!
