Tis the season to be jolly!
I married a wonderful man.
He noticed how I swoon over every feather tree I see and on his way home from work yesterday, he stopped by the museum store at Landis Valley Museum and bought me the most gorgeous, vintage looking tree! I love it so much, I had to share a few photos. It looks really nice with his antique wax ornaments. Now I'm on the look out for more vintage ornaments to hang. It also looks nice with a few other things I've bought at the museum store: a snowman bust reproduction by Johanna Parker (love her work), a Christmas countdown calendar, and a vintage looking Santa sculpture.
When looking for gifts to buy, I find museum shops are a great place to find wonderful, unique treasures. My other favorite place is Etsy. So much more rewarding to buy something from an actual artist or crafter than from a big chain store. Please leave a comment on this post telling me about the unique places where you like to shop for gifts. If you're an Etsy or Ebay seller, please leave a link so I can check out your shop!
I also want to thank Theresa of Faerie Moon Creations for bestowing upon me the Kreativ Blogger award. She has a lovely Etsy boutique filled with all sorts of jewelry that would make great gifts:)
Finally, pop on over to Chronicles of Whimsy and enter her wonderful blog giveaway! I love her artwork and am proud to own an original!
