How's Your Shopping Going

I've found the perfect present for a few people, so today I took a little time after cleaning up and putting everything away from Thanksgiving to wrap just a few.

I love some of the pretty papers and ribbons I found, they make such pretty packages.

You know how much I love my mirror ball, so imagine how thrilled I was to find this huge gold mirror ball.  Isn't it fabulous?

Hubby is getting all the decorations down, so I will be knee deep in getting the tree up and the rest of my decor too.  Can't wait to see all the glitz and shine of tons of gold and silver.  

Here's a glimpse at a really cute and novel hostess gift I got yesterday.  Isn't this fur wine collar just the cutest thing you've ever seen?  I can think of all kinds of places to use this.  Draped over a statue would be really fun too, or maybe one of my deer could wear it.  

I see tons of boxes, time to get busy and play.  Are you decorating too, or are you all done?

  1. Marty, I am about 75% done with decorating and shopping. I have not begun to wrap though. I like to shop for my wrapping papers and bags that co-ordinate with my tree colors. This year, so far, my tree is going to be mostly red and green/lime.
    i chose red wrapping paper, and I have two inch wide white ribbon. Your wrapping paper and packages look great. I love your gold ball. I have a silver crackle ball similar to yours. Mine is too heavy for the tree, so I have put it in a blow with some mercury glass ornaments.

  2. Marty, Just started, but got a good handle on my shopping. I was out looking for your silver reindeer at the dollar stores and I did find the silver bows, but not the deer. I tried several different dollar stores in the area, Dollar General, Dollar Galaxy, etc. but to no avail! Disappointed because they were so cute, but maybe I find something similar when the Christmas decorations go on sale.
    Hope you had a lovely Thanksgiving!

  3. looking likkee a mega glam sparkly Christmas at your house..
    I'm decorating a little each day and enjoying seeing the small changes each evening.

    big hugs

  4. Good Morning Marty.
    Love all your pretty packages. The wine bottle cover is super sweet. Love that.

  5. If the fur is real I do not like it. Sorry but I look after animals and I will never promote real fur.

    1. Not real. Definitely faux and a rhinestone brooch too. Still a cute idea.

  6. your packages looks so great & festive! i love the idea of using the wine wrap on a statue. you're always thinking outside the box, i love that! tfs- MJ

  7. Even your wrapping paper is so well-coordinated with your home decor Marty - so chic! I'm almost done with my gifts and wrapping too!

  8. I love how you coordinated everything Marty! So far, I have pulled out a bunch of decorations. I hung the garland and lights on the stairs, the wreath on the door and various other things here and there. As for shopping...I never go out on Black Friday but I did manage to buy a few things on line...for myself! Why is it that you find the best things when you are supposed to be shopping for other people?! Oh well...have a great week!
