counting down

The first week of December is over and there are only two weekends left before Christmas weekend is here! How is your holiday shopping and preparation going? I am still working away on the Christmas tree skirt I started sewing over Thanksgiving. It is definitely a slow process, but I know I will love it when it's finished!

Ryno and I have most of our gift shopping taken care of, but we still have some friends on the list. While I was looking around online last night I noticed that a few shops are promoting a gift of the day. West Elm, Anthropologie, Madewell and J. Crew all have some version of a calendar countdown to Christmas. The Anthropologie countdown offers customers a chance to win the "gift of the day" by entering a daily contest online. I think the 12 Days of Madewell is really sweet. I love all their printed scarves and cozy sweaters.
