Christmas Loot

Maybe it's my imagination but it seems like people are really looking forward to Christmas. All around town I saw people out decorating, shopping, and just looking happy. The best thing about this time of year for me is the Christmas spirit!!! People seem more connected to each other and willing to share the love. It's truly magical!!

I also love to be inspired...
I used to wait anxiously for the December issues of my favorite magazines to come out but this year with the discovery of so many amazing blogs, there is no end to the inspiration. It comes on a daily basis!!!

Of course there are always a couple of fabulous shops where you can get up close and personal with the Christmas Eye Candy.

Here are 2 of my favorites...


Ron Morgan is the creative genius behind this fabulous shop.
He's a rock star in the world of flower arranging. He's written several books on table settings and flower arrangements and they are like nothing you've ever me on this!
( I'll do a more in depth post on him soon...I promise!)



Barbara Mooney is the talented and delightful soul behind
this wonderful little shop.
She constantly amazes me with her ever evolving treasure trove of delights.

How festive it all is! I am so excited this year for some reason. I think becasue it will be a Christmas to really be simple and grateful more than ever before. I checked out those photos of the pig at Alameda again... I think they are wood? I am only interested if they are OLD leather... Thanks for sharing!! Do you like your chandelier?
