You are Cordially Invited to Attend the First Annual -- Possibly -- Buttercupland Chanukah/Christmas/New Year Fair.
No R.S.V.P Needed
There was a snap of cold in the air yesterday morning, which is now gone. The sun was shining brightly yesterday and today, but that one little snap made me realize that fall is just about here and with that thought I began to think about the holidays that are ahead.
I am one of those people who has a gift list completed -- I'm sorry I can't help it -- and is beginning to buy gifts. Last year I shopped via a number of blog friends and found treasures -- books, candles and beautiful art work. I'll be blog buddy shopping again this year, too, and I'll be doing posts featuring some of the very talented citizens of Buttercupland, and friends. If you're a writer, artist or candlestick maker, please join the fun. I'd love to feature your work in the fair, too. If you would like to have your work included -- you have an Etsy store, a website, you've written a book (electronic or print) please let me know. The more the merrier! There's a lot of creativity in our blog world.
Just think, less visits to big box stores and the mall. Last year, I loved sitting in my robe with a cup of tea and ordering thoughtful, original and beautiful gifts. I'll be doing the posts in October, so you can get all of your shopping done early and spend the rest of the season cooking and crafting all the nice pins you've found on Pinterest. I know that would make a lovely season for me, and I wouldn't miss last minute visits to Macy's in my down coat and boots.
One quick sneak preview...
A Scrapbook of Motherhood Firsts is a wonderful gift. I gave copies to two friends last year and they were both delighted. It's a lovely gift for new moms and not-so-new moms.
Please join me at the fair. No need to R.S.V.P. You're always welcome!
Today was another glorious day in New York City. I made an excursion to the Metropolitan Museum and enjoyed seeing the Egyptian collection. I never get tired of seeing it.
Thanks so much for visiting and take good care of yourself.
