It’s a bit frightening to think that Christmas is in less than three weeks! I am not at all prepared and have much left to do. I did manage to do a little decorating outside with a lot of the boxwood clippings I bought during the Holiday Shop Hop.
Luckily, my family saw the light and we began choosing names a few years ago, which makes shopping loads easier. But it’s still a challenge to think of perfect presents. I have a couple for friends and my mother already, but there’s still much to do, and no trip to NYC this year.
As always, I advocate alternative sources. I am a very tactile person and have a great need to be able to touch and heft items to see whether I like the way they feel. Descriptions and images can be very deceiving.
Having said that though, I have had some good luck buying from One King’s Lane and Gilt. I bought Bunny Williams’ and Mary Randolph Carter’s new books from them recently and got great deals on both. I know they will be treasured for years to come. How are your holiday preparations coming along?
