Under the Christmas Tree...

Our Tree 2008
As Christmas quickly approaches, it is time to get busy filling up all that space under the tree! In past years, I have been quite a "late" shopper...but am hoping to change that this year...and finally be one of those people who can say they have all of their shopping done well before Christmas Eve...but...we shall see...

Friday Flea Market is here again (I am late as usual!)...and for those of you seeking to avoid long lines and get unique, hand made and one-of-a-kind gifts, it is a great place to shop! I highly encourage to stop by and visit the various sellers...many offer fabulous deals as well!

My husband Joshua and I have each been busily working on our own lines of jewelry, which I wanted to share today for FFM. Some of the following items are available at our shop, Painted White and some are only available on Etsy. To view more of each item or to make a purchase, simply click on the link above the image.

Joshua has taken up a fascination with old pocket watches, watch parts...and all things "steampunk"...and has come up with some truly unique and beautiful designs.

I, too, have been working on more jewelry designs...including these brand new beauties...they are actually a favorite of mine now...they also come in a peachy-pink if you prefer...

And to add some festivity to your wardrobe...

Happy Friday Flea Market and blessing for the weekend ahead!

Till next time...

My heart's in love with that Christmas tree. It's got old world charm with the vintage postcards and elegance with pearls. The suitcase is so, so darling on the trunk. I just want to pack it up and bring up to my house this second!

Oh and I'd like to pack up all the jewelry to put beneath the tree too.
Nuit heureuse,
