Christmas is coming up and as usual I’m finding everything for ME. I hope you enjoy giving yourself gifts as much as I do. Let me show you a few of my favorites.
Lisa Gastelum of TBQ Designs has been on my list of favorites for a long time. And now I found these sweet little earrings—wouldn’t they be great for the holidays?
I have a thing for rings and I have a thing for green, need I say more?! Find this and similar rings at Maite Inc.
And I always have something marked as a favorite with almost local girl Kathryn Riechert. I love the name of this necklace—Regrowth—and think it would be a perfect one to start off the new year with.

|Have a heart ~ set of 4 porcelain hearts|
I've always been a sucker for hearts ~ and these porcelain hearts are just beautiful ~ imagine them hanging from your Christmas tree or even hanging from a gift, adding that special touch.
|Loving heart ~ brooch|
I told you I had a thing for hearts!! Karen of Hodgepodgearts has the most wonderful ceramics and artwork I would advise you all to take a look!

Last week our house building project was pure pain and I wanted to escape. And I did, at least in my mind. Above you can see where I went when I wanted a few minutes of piece and quiet. This week everything looks much better, but when I need a few minutes for myself, I just return to my own world where I can be myself. Look more beautiful work from Jenni on Etsy.

For those in the States, Happy Thanksgiving! Our American team members are planning on stuffing ourselves with turkey this upcoming Thursday, how about you?
In the mean time, here's what we've been up to this past week:
- Louise shares a peek into her Saturday.
- Anna-Karin has jellyfish on her brain (and in her shop)!
- Jo finished the special necklace that she shared last week.
- Ginger found a cute way to "store" cats.
- I'm partial to Doodle 68 from Joanne!
- Catherine shared a post of her own personal jewelry collection, which in turn inspired Sirpa to do the same!
- Katja's been dealing with the color pink this past week.
- Brandi joined in the A Crafty Holiday Blog Hop.
Since it's a holiday week, I'll be skipping the Blog Roundup next weekend, but will be back in December! Gobble gobble!

I don’t have as much time as I’d like to browse all the pretty handmade things on Etsy, but I happened upon these three birds. I’d love to have a set in my living room, which I plan to decorate in whites and neutrals ... you know, sometime in the next, oh, I don’t know ... five years?
Look at all the other neat holiday things from Trieste Prusso here.

I absolutely adore this print ~ I love the colour (It would go in my bedroom perfectly) and I suppose being heavily inspired lately by the moon it just sort of calls to me. All of Olga's art has a special quality ~ there's more than one I would love to own.

I was looking for white, vintage style frames for myself and found this shop. You can find more chalkboards, ornate mirrows and frames from here. The lovely owner Karen also has a great offer for us: if you purchase something from her shop (through our blog), just mention Etsy's Best Kept Secrets in the "buyer notes" and get 10% discount credited back after purchase.
