What vintage loving girl wouldn't love this? And it works, too! I found this adorable functional scale at Hobby Lobby for just under $20 (get 40% off with coupon this week.) It is also available in a larger scale. You could add some fruit or some Christmas cookies to the little bowl to give a more personal touch. The ribbon looks decidedly Swedish and came from Michaels. A red and white Christmas is so simple and lovely. It would look great to wrap gifts with this ribbon and brown craft paper.
These little journals have a Scandinavian look also. I found them in the dollar bin at Michaels. These make great gifts for children with a pretty pen or set of pencils to encourage writing. They are also the perfect size to fit in a Bible to keep a prayer list. In the dollar bin, you can also find some nice plaid journals!
It seems I have jumped from summer in my last post to Christmas and completely skipped fall! It's not true...I just like to do my shopping early. Usually in August I make a list and by September I have a plan. I am not very organized, so don't let this fool you! But, for us unorganized moms, a plan in place offers freedom for the holidays! My family does not like a frazzled mom for Christmas!
Other benefits of shopping early are better prices, things in stock and time to return without all the crowds!
How about you? Do you start shopping for Christmas early?
Thanks for stopping by!
