Christmas 2015 Gift Guide...

'Tis the season for the 2015 Christmas Gift Guide....Some fun finds from various sources, including small businesses, artisans, Etsy shops, etc...These gifts are mostly for the home, but also some for men, women, and children as well.

Hope you are all enjoying the holidays!! xoxo
Adorable, quirky striped stockings! ETSY shop, GoodWishesQuilts
I fell in love with ETSY artist, Coco de Paris when I spotted a series of her charming work in new shop, Sapphire Pear
She prints her quirky hand-painted images on vintage French book pages..As a side note, I am not sure whether the ones in Sapphire Pear are original works of art, plus they are matted and framed, so the price points are obviously different.
Another Coco de Paris work...She offers TONS of different animals, but I have a soft spot for these sweet giraffes!
Domino Magzine - Colorful Playing Cards
Lovely Custom Address Stamp from ETSY shop, LoveToCreateStamps

Michelle Armas- Leslie
Michelle Armas - Leslie Furbish Studio's holiday pop up shop....

Love the charming illustrations in this Mari Robeson Desk Calendar

Adorable dish towels from fabulous new local Rocky River shop, Sapphire Pear

Jill Rosenwald Beautiful hand made ceramics...I am loving this line of 'Gold Glamour'
The reality is that ounce for ounce, this is comparable to a glass of wine in terms of calories, but I love the white cranberry flavor, and I usually pour over a generous glass of ice to cut the sweet taste...

Another from Jill Rosenwald, from her Erin Gates (my favorite blogger) Collection

Serena & Lily Plated Glass Hurricane
Restoration Hardware Faceted Metallic Ornament

Cottage in the City Galvanized Bucket
Not-Your-Grandpa's-Polaroid....This iconic classic offers a sleek new look and feel, plus fun for the entire family!

A friend recently gave me this adorable tank from new athletic gear line, Neva Wear
The fabric is very good quality, thick, with vibrant, fun colors and inspirational messages....PLUS,  you are helping to support local Southeast Asian artisans who support themselves through the work of these pieces. LOVE!

"(Nee-Vuh) noun 1. a highter standard of activewear creating an endless karmic loop - conneting you to your life's passions as the skilled artisans whose lives you are helping to positively transform."

If you have an emerging reader making the transition to chapter books, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this classic Boxcar Children series by Gertrude Chandler Warner.  My son Charlie refused to touch a chapter book until we got hooked on this series. The words are fairly simple and easy to read, and the captivating tale of four children making their way in the world will charm children and adults alike...PLUS, great boy-friendly themes of rock collecting, woods-exploring, camping, fishing, and outdoor adventures...

We haven't read this yet, but someone recently recommended it....

Merrell Decora Boots....
For the Beer Pong-Loving men in your life...Southern Tide's Splash Tie

Wishing you and your family and happy and healthy holiday season!! xoxo Claire

P.S. For some comic relief, I had to include some fun retro holiday cards....
