I love this distressed wallet by Pegai.

I love the look of the art by local Boston artist Krista of Fox and Marigold. Please check her out and all of her amazing art work. It’s so simple and yet so detailed. I ordered this print below. She will even do custom illustrations!

I have fallen for the camera straps made by Sassy Strap and yes, I am ordering one for myself! Merry Christmas to me!

This planter is adorable from Midcentury Modest

And this personalized military style weekend bag from Heritage Wedding is perfect. You could sneak some vacation plans into the pocket.

And this spoon is the cutest spoon. They have many sayings to choose from, or you can create your own!

I love pure beeswax candles. If you’ve never tried them before, gift yourself with these. They have such a great smoky honey smell and a beautiful flame. It’s all I use now in my tapers. You’ll receive great quality tapers from this Monastery beeswax candle company. Made by monks at St. Johns Monastery These will look so pretty tied with a nice ribbon.
