GIFTS I COVET | This Girl Wants These Gifts. You Will, Too.

Hey everybody, hope the holidays are treating you well this year.  With Christmas days away, unless you have car (not the case for a city-dweller like me), I’m not so sure you’ll be able to grab these gifts in time.  But here’s the thing, and let’s be honest with ourselves… we’ll probably just want to get these goodies for our own personal use.  Am I right or am I right?  And I wouldn’t give myself a hard time if I got myself a belated gift.  Would you?

Most of these gifts I caught wind of either through friends, family, People, or the good ol’ boob tube.  I found the following items to be my absolute faves, and I think you’ll like them, too.  If you’d like to get your hands on any of these products, the links to where you can find them immediately follow each image.  Hurry though; each of these items is still in stock presently, but of course there’s no way I can promise they’ll still be available in the minutes after I post this!

HOLIDAY FAVES LOVE | dreamy diys + pretty printables + awe-inspiring images | Heavenly Holiday Decor + Gift Packaging Perfection = My Happiness

There are lots of reasons why the holidays are one of my favorite times of the year, but ranking high among them are the following two:

~ dreamy and delightful holiday decor

~ pretty packaging perfection by incredibly creative crafters

Combine those two with my absolute favorite thing in general and of all time – photography – and you get marvelous, breathtakingly beautiful things… wondrous things that never cease to amaze me, no matter how many times or however long I stare at them.  Here are several examples of that magic, created by some of the greatest triple threats around.  Click on the links announcing each set to visit each artist’s space on the web (Flickr pages or personal weblogs).
