A Few Things From the Attic

Do you realize that there are only 9 weeks until Christmas?? Time to get shopping. My mom and I wanted to post a few items that we love from the attic. These make great gifts! Gifts for the people on your list and even gifts for yourself because you didn't burn dinner or something else extraordinary like that. I only posted a few things and the majority of them are out of the Santa Shop. Be sure to explore the rest of the attic and remember that all of our prices are discounted at least 20% off the suggested retail price. Click on the caption for more information.

Thanks for stopping by the attic. Take a peak inside. You never know what treasures you might find.

Hi there, came across your it. Thanks for the gentle reminder that we must begin our shopping soon. 9 weeks is not that long really. I wish it was a task we could do in a day!

Kari & Kijsa said...

Wow- Not that long until Christmas! (and great stuff too!) We need to get shopping for Christmas gifts...Although, we do like the thought of rewarding ourselves for not burning dinner!LOL

Great minds...I usually wait until Nov 1 to put Christmas music on, but a lot of blogs have been talking of Amy Grant's new book Mosaic, Pieces Of My Life So Far, that I christened the season with her 3 Christmas albums. CLASSIC. I might come shopping later. Let the season begin!

Your blog has certainly put me in the holiday spirit. My mother always played those lovely Christmas songs beginning after dinner on Thanksgiving...a tradition I seem to follow.

That cookbook sound like an amazing gift! I'll try to pop over later (got sick ones at home lately). 9 weeks? really? Ugh. I'm usually so much further ahead by this time. Oh, can't wait to see your Craig's List sofa!!! Blessings... Polly

I enjoyed going to the attic to look around. Is the picture the actual shop or is it an online shop? You might have mentioned it before, but I am new at this.

Heidi said...

This elf is working overtime in Santa's Workshoppe. I am almost done with one box and ready to ship it off to Kristy. Shhh! Don't tell her. :) Next I have to start on her sister's stuff. You think each year that you are organized and ready and yep there it is! The calendar seems to have jumped ahead all of the sudden.
