Please join us for shopping with a twist on Friday December 11, 2009 as we present "Last Minute Gifts"

Christmas is just around the corner, but there's still time to find just the right gift for that someone special on your shopping list this year. Whatever her interests or tastes, here are some last minute gift ideas that will fill her holiday season with delight, and remind her that you think of her all through the year.

A gift for the kitchen is always welcome. Perhaps a delicately embroidered kitchen towel to hang on the over door, a toaster oven cover in the prettiest fabric and lace, white farmhouse canisters for holding utensils or a floral bouquet, or a cupcake clock to add whimsy to her kitchen wall.

For a new mother, or a mother-to-be, a baby blanket in soft white fleece or a cuddly bedtime friend for a little one to love. Gifts for the nursery might be a cute cupcake coin bank or a decorative wreath of childhood toys and treasures to display.

Do you have a crafter or stitcher on your list? She would be delighted to find a new project under her tree this year. Beautiful quilting fabrics and patterns or a scrapbooking kit for her most precious memories. For the book lover, a vintage basket to hold her favorite books, or a carefully chosen book to give her new inspiration.

To add romance and beauty to her home, there are pillows dressed in ruffles and roses, vintage vases and dishes for her shelf, silk flowers in colors that fit with any d├ęcor, a Victorian vanity tray to grace the dresser in her boudoir.

Does she spend hours in her garden? Think hand painted birdhouses, cup and saucer birdfeeders for feathered friends. An outdoor fairy house to inspire her creativity. Or if she prefers to spend her time entertaining indoors, perhaps a pretty handcrafted apron, a pair of elegant candlesticks, a broken china teapot to bring out whenever friends come to tea.

Your lifelong best friend deserves a gift as beautiful and unique as she is - a one-of-a-kind sterling bracelet, a vintage needlepoint transformed into a boudoir cushion, an antique pendant hanging on a ribbon chain. Cinderella shoes that make her dreams come true with heirloom laces, jewels and vintage brooches.

A last minute Christmas gift can hold all the love and friendship you feel at this season and always.

It's all about Christmas!

Please join us for shopping with a twist on Friday December 4, 2009 as we present "It's all about Christmas"

Christmas is all about family, friends, church and community. Seeing loved ones who live far away and reconnecting with those who are nearby, but we don't see as often as we wish we could. It's about caring for those who are alone at this time of year and inviting them to be part of our families too. Working with our communities to bring Christmas cheer to those in need, is such a special part of our Christmas tradition.

Christmas is about time spent sitting around the fire, enjoying the warmth of the season. It is hot cocoa or our favorite tea, sipped from our favorite vintage holiday cups. Working on new stitching projects for someone we love, while telling stories from the past year and our hopes for the year to come. We're thankful for those we will share it with.

It's about planning cookie swaps and holiday menus. Yankee swaps and prizes that bring a little extra element of excitement to young and old alike. Christmas is about searching for gifts that we're sure everyone on our Christmas list will love. We're filled with excitement when we find that perfect item for someone on our list, and we feel a little giddy at the thought of them opening our gift on Christmas morning. The Ultimate gift for someone special is no longer elusive. With a love of repurposed and well loved gifts from the past, our choices become easier and more personal; our treasure hunt memorable.

friday 12-4Under the sparkling lights of the Christmas tree shines gift wrap that's almost as pretty as the gifts inside. Some gifts are wrapped in vintage linens and held closed by a vintage rhinestone brooch. Others are tied with velvet ribbons and big bows. Each gift bears a handmade gift tag, twinkling with glitter and the name of someone you love. The sense of anticipation we feel looking at those Christmas treasures is almost as exciting as watching the gifts being opened.

Christmas is all about sharing the blessings of the season with family and friends and believing that everything about the Christmas season is magical.
