this year has easily been our busiest to date, and has left me feeling very satisfied, but equally exhausted. so if it wasn’t for a 6 yr old reminding me about it every waking moment, i would be happy to give christmas a miss this year. but i cant, and a-present shopping i must go.
i am what most would classify as a last-minute-type shopper – i am not talking chirstmas eve, but lets just say i am yet to make the majority of my purchases. however i have at least been thinking about it and writing a list. i am planning to do it all in one afternoon – my usual style, and generally it works out pretty good. here are some of the places i will be shopping in the next few days:
third draw down – hand tattoo’s for tyke, “kick the habit” socks for a friend who should be giving up smoking, and miranda july pillowcases for someone secret (who might be reading this blog…shhhhhhhhh!)
(third draw down will also soon be stocking our beci orpin line!)
lost and found – for vintage wares for many on my list
xocolatl - a big box of handmade sweetness for tyke’s amazing teacher who gave him the best first year in school we could have ever hoped for
castle bed linen – for me
brunswick bound - books are possibly my favourite gift (to give and receive!) – lucky for me, my local bookstore houses an amazing array of titles. there will be many a things purchased here, including this treehouse book for my dad (in the hope he will build me one one day)
kido – my favourite favourite kids store. shame its in sydney but thank-god their online shop is awesome. this is what i am thinking of for ari. he loves balancing and pink, i love barbapapa. perfect!
