There are so very many stages of Christmas. And each year, without fail, I up and fail to recall the many stages of Christmas. The first stage is anticipatory and most usually blooms around September (is it time? it's almost time...). Then October ends (it's almost time) and in November the rubber really hits the road. That's the time. Time for the Santas and sleigh bells and snowmen and stockings and so much time left 'til the most wonderful time. Fast forward a few festive minutes and here we are with merely thirteen (that can't be lucky) more days 'til my most favourite day and yikes. It's time. Time to merrily hit the gas on this celebration because it's no longer just an idea, this Christmas. Nope. These are the most merry moments of all, for parties and wrapping and handwritten cards and decking of halls (and decking of the McCoy pottery). According to my Christmas calculations (me and my merry math skills again) there are less than two weeks to go and so it's show time. Yes. I'll not panic or fret like I have in the past, I'll remember the tape and I'll make last minute lists. I will take a deep breath and I'll take it all in. It's the best time of all, this stage, these moments. The rush and the bustle and the merry moments and the happy days and the cookies and yes, please to all of it. Yes. Happy Day 👋🏻...
🌲On the subject of giving presents. I prefer not to overuse the resources of our planet. This means gifting experiences, consumables, buying from ethical brands when buying new, but better than that – buying secondhand! When talking about secondhand shopping, most of us think clothing. But there is so much more you can buy secondhand. I have a collection of little vintage treasures I’ve collected on my travels that you can find in my shop (link in bio). All the pieces have their unique story and character.
This large pottery bowl with beautiful iris design is what painterly, bohemian dreams are made of $38 (32cm)
