Autumn has arrived...though by looking out my window today, you wouldn't know it. It's sunny, 77 degrees, no humidity...the perfect day in my book! But Autumn it is. Even though we haven't had much cause to wear our perfectly chunky sweaters and tall leather boots yet. And Autumn means that holiday shopping is not too far from our thoughts.
But, before we talk about holiday shopping, let's talk about shopping for YOU. Yes, you. The person you will think the least about in the coming months. As you work so hard to make your family Christmas magical, baking, shopping, wrapping...you put yourself last. So....take care of you, now. Schedule a massage for just after Thanksgiving, get a little ahead by addressing your holiday cards while sitting on your deck in the sun, plan your holiday menus and make a schedule for baking and freezing during the weekends. And for goodness sake, buy yourself something pretty to wear throughout Fall!
There are lots of new Autumn themed items in the shop right now. A great necklace or bracelet is a just the little "take care of me" pick-me-up that will help get you through the busy weeks heading into Thanksgiving. If you are one of the lucky souls who get invited to someone else's house for the big dinner, be sure to take a gift for the hostess that shows you care. Handcrafted jewelry shows that you thought enough of them to choose something unique, that they will wear for many Autumns to come.
