It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like...

Christmas!?! Are You serious?!? I am not sure how an annual holiday can catch me by suprise, but this one always does. It always falls on December 25 but I always find myself scurrying around on December 1st thinking, "I only have 24 days till Christmas."

So once again winter is on it's way and with it the colors and sounds of the holiday season. Whether you are celebrating Kwanzaa, Hanukkah, Christmas, or Winter Solstice this holiday season, the talented Sheteam has selections to help you cross off gift items from that shopping list. Here are just a few.

How about this adorable Waldorf Inspired Toy Party Time Playset from TheEnchantedCupboard

For the cooks in the family I love this Mini Apron and Dress Form made by The Good Ole Days
Who doesn't have a young fashionista in their family? And what young girl wouldn't love to bundle up in style with a Flowered Earflap Beanie made by those Crochet Sisters over at CrochetRUs?
Finally, get a gift for yourself - a gift in which you can carry your stash of presents. This Soft Green Backpack Purse can be custom monogrammed by The Blissful stitcher.

The Thanksgiving Dinner

Once there lived a woman,
who was hosting her family Thanksgiving.

She cleaned for days and the house smelled so nice.

Dressed in her best, she welcomed her guests.

Herbs from her own garden formed the humble wreath on her door,as guests arrived bearing gifts to say Thank You to their hostess...

Her table was set with lovely dishes...

...and the food was...well...divine.

Buzz, buzz, buzz...The alarm clock sounds. Wait it was only a dream. What time is it? What is today? Tuesday? The 23rd? Wow, I have a lot of work to do. Cleaning, scrubbing, cooking, baking...Thanksgiving is only two days away!

Wishing you all the best,

Just What the Doctor Ordered

I'll be keeping this post short and sweet.

My kiddos have been sick babies the past few days. Some with stomach virus, others with colds. ICK ICK ICK!!! So the
"Fun Theme" for today is
Just What the Doctor Ordered...(Dr. Mom that is)

1. Eat lots of colorful fruits and vegetables.

2. Take a nice warm shower with fragrant essential oils to help relieve the aches and pains of fever and to open up those bronchial tubes.

3. Get plenty of rest.

4. If you must go outside, be sure to bundle up. Keep those ears and that throat of yours covered and warm.

I found all these lovely "Make you feel better" items in the shop list over to the left...right here on the SheTeam blog. I am so glad I looked around.

French Lavender Essential Oil Soap for the nice warm shower - byZosca

Hand Painted, Silk Roving to make something warm to wrap yourself in - by Woolgatherings

The Plush little "Meadow Bunny to snuggle while you rest - by Wilkinsoncrafts

The bright multicolored bracelet to remind you to eat your fruits and vegetables - by Wiredwhimsey

When Summer Turns to Winter

It is a regular practice of ours to commit various verses to memory. Be it scripture, parts of plays, historical speeches or poetry, we always feel such a sense of satisfaction when the work is memorized. This is one of our current poems and a few selections from the talented Sheteam.

Something Told the Wild Geese
-by Rachel Field

Something told the wild geese
It was time to go.
Though the fields lay golden
Something whispered "Snow."

Leaves were green and stirring,
Berries, luster glossed,
But beneath warm feathers
Something cautioned "Frost."

All the sagging orchards
Steamed with amber spice,
But each wild breast stiffened
At remembered ice.

Something told the wild geese
It was time to fly-
Summer sun was on their wings
Winter in their cry.

Items pictured above:
1. MommysDream - Vacationing Snowman Handpainted Ornament
2. Ham-n-Cheezr - Holly and Berries Quilted Table Runner
3. BraceletsbyLinda - Amber and Pearl Bracelet
4. TemporaryTrappings - Snow Angel
