Tick-tok, ladies and gents…here’s hoping your presents are wrapped, your stockings are full, and you’re all geared up for a peaceful and happy Christmas! Sure, it’s too late to order any of these beauties before the holidays, but if nothing else they can serve as reminders and inspiration for the big day.
Joy to the World Glittered Burlap Banner by funkyshique. $24. Funkyshique does beautiful things with burlap, and, being huge fans of burlap, we can’t help but admire her work. This Joy to the World banner is simple, sweet, and the perfect solution for those of us who aren’t interested in overloading our homes and senses with crazy amounts of decorations this Christmas.
illuminated-5×5 original fine art photograph by tinacrespo. $10. We love tinacrespo. Her photos are haunting, hopeful, and flat out gorgeous. In short, we want to live in her photograped world. We’ll have to settle with staring at her prints and imagining that they are our happy place.
Dove Holiday Card by Letterpress Light. $4.75. Dove holiday cards? Sure, we’ve all seen them before…but nothing like this card by Letterpress Light. The graceful design and beautiful colors makes this a card that will come out of the envelope and go straight into a frame. And that, my friends, is a card worth sending.
Peace -tan with black text- Cushion by NestaHome. $23. The presents have been opened, the wrapping paper is littering the floor, the kids are running around on a sugar high from candy canes…and you’re curled up on the couch with this pillow, tea in one hand and a smile on your face. Because even though the holidays aren’t always peaceful, it’s important to find those fleeting moments when you create your own peace. The cool printing and funky simplicity of this will help you remember that.
Living Succulent Centerpiece/Wreath 14 inch by SucculentDesigns. $109. Old school evergreen wreaths are nice. They are. But this succulent wreath? Come on, there’s no competition. And instead of vacuuming up needles, tossing it after the holidays, and not giving it another thought, this wreath not only can be displayed all year round, but can also double as a centerpiece, keeping a lovely burst of color in your life during the cold, blank days of winter (and beyond). We have a winner.
Jack Frost Necklace by JealousCat. $99. Who says the tree is the only thing allowed to sparkle? Whether you’ve got a party to go to or just want to wear this with a pretty sweater and jeans while hanging with the fam, we refuse to believe that this necklace could ever fail to make you feel stunning. After all-if we can’t enjoy a little glitz and glam during the holidays, then what point is there?
Keep Calm and Have a Cocktail Wooden Tile Pendant by Dancing Dog Designs. $6.95. Okay, after all this talk of this idyllic Christmas we’re all about to embark on, it’s time to remember-sometimes these things are more Christmas Vacation and a little less It’s a Wonderful Life. And that’s okay too. Because while you’re listening to Aunt Agnes complain about her bunions and Great Uncle Tom is criticizing your tree, the food, and the government, you can be wearing this awesome pendant, sipping some spiked eggnog, and telling yourself to take deep breaths. After all, isn’t that what the holidays are all about too?
Happy holidays to one and all, Meatbagz friends and fans. We’ll be on blog vacation next week, enjoying time with our families, but we’ll be back in the new year. So until then, Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
