My last visit turned up many Christmas goodies, and a couple old jewelry boxes that were originally intended for part of my craft show display. I have fallen in love with the red lined jewelry box and so am greedily keeping it for myself although I have own very little jewelry.

(Side note - while I was taking these photos today, my camera finally bit the dust, so they're less than amazing. I can't exactly fit a new camera into the budget, so I'm praying that it will either be miraculously healed, an orphaned digital SLR will magically turn up on my doorstep or the money to buy a new one will be in my PayPal account soon! :) A girl can dream, right...)
At the local North Tacoma Goodwill I came across a crocheted door ornament with jingle bells, a bag full of vintage ornaments without a price tag (JACKPOT!) In it were a few mercury glass balls and a 3D ornament like my parents used to hang on their tree. It's always a good feeling when you find an items that's not tagged. It usually means a bargain!
The tree is trimmed and most of the decorations are up. We made cookies today and are playing with the Christmas PlayMobil advent toys. It's beginning to feel like Christmas finally!
