Stocking Stuffers

So did you get any great deals this past weekend? I didn’t shop at all. Actually, I’ve been keeping a secret. Last Tuesday the Décor family got on a plane and is spending a week in Virginia. Given that we are entering a season of high theft I thought it would not be wise to announce “I am not at home.”  I’ll share photos of Colonial Williamsburg, The White House, Arlington National Cemetery and many, many other wonderful places and things possibly on Friday. 

I do have a few stocking sized gems in my Etsy shop.

I wish you could smell these lovely hand milled French soaps that I brought back from my trip last April.

Scents include rose, almond, honey, olive and lavender. The are $7 (which includes the stateside shipping).

Need some spice in your life? Here are some wonderful French rose tea and seasonings, such as Herbes de Provence, for $8 (which includes stateside shipping).

The rose tisane, pronounced tea-zahn, is perfectly pretty just to look at.

But the delicate taste and smell when steeped in hot water is really wonderful too.

If you would like the soap, spice or tea just leave me a comment or contact me privately on Facebook. Now I’m off to catch up on laundry and make some new stockings for my family.

Colonial Williamsburg during the Christmas season is one of my very favorite family holidays we've ever taken.

I know you had fun. Hope they were doing the luminaries when you were there.

I'm just peeking back into blogland after missing for a week. I'll be doing a lot of reading and getting inspired today.

I used to work at Colonial Williamsburg during college! My family used to live on a horse farm only about 15 minutes away and we all agree it was probably our favorite place we've ever lived. I remember putting on my colonial garb on cold winter mornings and getting to wear my long red wool cloak and "mitts" as I walked down the main street to work. I love CW during the holidays!! Glad you got to visit. :-)

Sounds like the perfect place to spend Thanksgiving. We visited Arlington this summer - our first time, it was quite moving, nice experience. I didn't shop either. I've done it once and have no desire to ever do it again :)
