Hello, blog enthusiasts! Today I thought I'd share some of my favorite items from For anyone who isn't familiar, Artfire is similar to Etsy in that it's a venue for artists and retailers to sell handmade and vintage items. As of now, it's a bit smaller than etsy but is growing every day and houses some extremely talented people! Just a few items that sparked my interest....

Blue Gem Mine Turquoise Long Triple Layered Statement Necklace by epicetera

Going Down the Twirly Slide - Whimsical Spiral Earrings in Goldfill by Ms Belle

Aphrodite Dress by Poppy

Flower Shaped Copper Enamel Earrings, Teal and Red by Teka and Zoe

I know it was just Christmas and all.... but I feel like shopping:) Share your picks, get your favorite shops some exposure! Go!

Happy Giftmas!

It's my first christmas away from family... we recently moved to Austin, TX from Louisville, KY and I couldn't afford the plane trip home, not to mention I would have felt awful leaving Dr. Boyfriend all alone. Brother is sending me phone pics of Christmas dinner, informing me that 'my seat has been taken by biscuits.' ha! I didn't think I would feel so lost about not being home, but I'm realizing how much I always look forward to it! The house always smells good, there are mimosas and snow and awesome christmas tv.

But all is not lost! We have a few presents to open here in the morning, and a potluck dinner with some friends/coworkers later on. Although I don't think there were any assigned dishes, so it could very well end up being a table full of cookies and macaroni... what's wrong with that?! Have a lovely Giftmas!
