Sometimes Monday ...

... is a day to pat yourself on the back! I didn't exactly clean out my refrigerator like Kym and Kat, but after a few hours on Amazon, another few on Etsy, and some texts sent to ask about niece's and nephew's sizes, I completed about 75% of my Christmas shopping.




Nobody from my family reads my blog, so I'm not giving away any secrets. I purchased some wonderful books that I enjoyed this year for people that have called me "an excellent book-chooser", which was lots of fun. I've admired the clear antique kitchen glass panel above for years and finally just decided it was a perfect gift. I wouldn't have minded it for myself, but it did feel great to purchase it as a gift for two dearly-loved family members. 

I still have oodles of hats that I'd like to knit, a visit to the liquor store, and I've only gotten a few things for Ryan and Justin so far, but being 75% done with Christmas shopping made it a pretty darn good weekend. I hope your weekend was equally enjoyable and productive!

  1. I am jealous -- I still have yet to do any Channukah shopping! At least it's on the later side this year.

  2. Oh, that's EXCELLENT, Bonny! I'll bet that feels WAY better than a clean refrigerator! (And that glass panel is divine!) XO

  3. Oh, that's such a good feeling, isn't it? It means a lot less stress for the rest of the holiday season. Here's hoping you get completely through before Thanksgiving! I am going to have a rather busy week since the house painters called last night and said they were coming today. OH NO! LOL

  4. That is an impressive percentage! Go you! (I am in the 25% category....sigh) but maybe this week I will get that number moved up a bit!

    1. I haven't even started on Thanksgiving prep, but I enjoy that a lot more than shopping! I also think that glass panel is lovely and original. I was happy that it hadn't already sold.

  9. That glass window is so beautiful! I'm glad it is going to someone who will love it. We have a stained glass panel over our front door (made by a friend) and we cherish it. Your gift will surely be cherished, too!

    1. I think only two people in my family even know about my blog and they aren't interested in reading it, so you've got company!

  14. Hooray for all that shopping completed. I plan to keep it simple this year but that is what I say every year. I have picked out a few books but I need to get moving.
