It's that time of year...

...when all the email blasts come pouring into my inbox from my favorite retailers and I start drooling over the Christmas decorations. As if I don't have enough already. Here are a few of my favorites this year:
  1. Pirate Ship, Anthropologie $18 (I will be looking for this one to go on sale, it's so fairytale-esque!)
  2. Skating Sweater Kids, Crate & Barrel $23.80/set (I bet you can buy individually in-store as usual)
  3. Red Sock Monkey, Paper Source $6.95 (I've been wanting one of these monkey sock toys, I have no idea why)
Ornament collecting ideas:
  1. Host an ornament exchange Christmas party - My husband and I used to exchange tools [guys] & ornaments [ladies] at our annual Christmas party. Things get crazy when you let everyone pick from whichever category they like!
  2. Give a new ornament to your family members on Thanksgiving - My friend came up with this idea. She gives her parents and siblings a new ornament each Thanksgiving, isn't that fun?!
  3. Give each child a new ornament every Christmas for their collection - My mom did this just about every year and we all had our own Christmas popcorn tin that we kept them in. By the time I moved out, I almost had a tree full!
