Right now I’m head over heels for anything wool! (If you saw the wool blanket I highlighted a few days ago, maybe you will be, too. ) This fuzzy little fawn is needle-felted onto fabric and surrounded by hand-stitched trees and stars. The willow wreath frames the design, adding to its woodland charm. Whether placed on a wall, a shelf, or a Christmas tree, this lovely hoop art will add a whimsical touch wherever it goes!

These Christmas tree sugar cookie earrings will make a good gift for someone who loves to bake or has a sweet tooth. Since I adore sweets and enjoy baking, it’s obvious why I like these earrings so much! I especially like that the sprinkles are pastels, which makes them a subtler Christmas accessory than my ugly Christmas sweater.

I love the simplicity of this whimsical snowman print. A single white balloon keeps this fellow afloat as he drifts into a snowy sky. His charming smile and festive hat, scarf, and stockings are what really delight me! The splash of red perfectly balances the white and subtle greys. If you want to spread Christmas joy to all your family and friends, this cheery design is also available as a greeting card.
Less than two months until Christmas is here! For many of you, the weather is steadily getting colder as the warm autumn colors make way for the evergreens to take center stage.
