Yes, It's That Time of Year Again.......


Ok a lot of people (me included) grumble sometimes about seeing Christmas or Halloween items out to early. Well, I do agree, I really love being in the season and celebrating the holidays as they are upon us..with one exception...........CHRISTMAS!

Why? I don't know but I can watch Christmas movies all year long and I know a lot of people are the same: 

Here is a snippet from my all time fav classic Christmas movie: It's A Wonderful Life 

My daughter's had their favorites too. This is not only my eldest daughter's fav but now my grand-daughter 's favorite movie as well: Prancer

Finally, my youngest daughter was always smitten with this adorable Henson classic: Emmet Otter's Jug Band Christmas

Another great thing about Christmas in July is....................


So many great shops with sales during this month and they are not limited to just offering Christmas items for sale!  

Here are some great shops with awesome merchandise, be it related to the Winter holiday or not!

I love my vintage so, I just have to feature that here first!!

What adorable cardinals from mamadupuis's shop!

Retrogroovie has the red....

OurBoudoir has the green....

Umeone has a little of both!

TambourineJewelry adds a little holiday sparkle...

Being a crafter myself, I just can't leave out all these fabulous handmade items available on sale right now too!

If you gotta have Christmas, you gotta have Santa!

What beautiful gift card holders!

You know you're going to get chapped lips in winter why not stock up now!

And they make great stocking stuffers too!

I think some beautiful artwork is a perfect Christmas gift!

A bright & colorful idea for your holiday table! 

 Here is hoping you find some great holiday bargains this month, take advantage of the opportunity to save big in these and other fabulous shops on Etsy!

Of course I always end with a few of my treasures too!
