getting gifty girlfriend style


It's not how much we give but how much love we put into giving
~Mother Teresa

Rushing around, buying last minute gifts isn't my idea of a good time. I prefer to think ahead, and have something in mind way in advance. There's such joy in giving. It's one of my favorite parts of the holiday. Wishing you had a little something for your girlfriends, a sister, or your mom? As my time in stores is limited these days, it's all mail order, baby...

Vintage inspired kitchenware is always one of my favorite things. Everyone could use a little something fun and unusual, especially in the way of storage.

Who doesn't like smelling sweet? Especially if it comes in the prettiest of packages?

She'll never be late again.

Sweet & lovely, and most likely to match any decor.

Whose kitchen couldn't use a little color?

And, if all else fails, there's always...

Pretty finds. I'm soooo ready to start focusing on Christmas. Life certainly put things into perspective this week. Thank you for your sweet words.

Hey Molly! I live near Charlotte, NC with several shops that carry Maileg. Go to their site..think it is maileg.com and you can check for local stores by your zip. There should be some online stores that carry it, as well. They have some adorable dish towels and little paper bags that I purchased for Christmas gifts. I will post soon, but thought you could keep on the lookout for those, too! I ordered a doll and tea set from Cath Kidston and thought of you! shhh...Christmas from Santa! Merry Christmas! I hope yours is wonderful with lots of laughter and joy! Christie
