There's a whole box of these amazing Bali Handpaint samples sitting under my tree right now! There's something for every color palette here. I'm anxious for the bolts to arrive.

Are you feeling Christmasy too?

I thought I'd take a little break & show you some of my favorite Christmas decorations. The tree is up & I'm slowly getting the rest of the house ready for the season.


These fragile plastic whirligigs have been in the family for at least 3 generations. The tin pinwheels inside spin when placed over a light on the tree.I love this little Santa from my childhood.
Some of these glass beads are losing their paint, but that's okay.
I love these. They are plastic, but look metallic. I remember when Mom bought them at a dime store. My sister surprised me a few years ago by giving me hers that match!
I made & sold a zillion of these when I was about 12. Check out the Mary Tyler Moore do!
