Santa, a giveaway, and other random thoughts...

I've said it before-I {love} Canton! I plan trips home around a first Monday! I actually went twice this last month just to get my fill and I'll make one more trip before we head home in January. I've been telling my friends in SC for years about this outdoor 'trade days' and have them all wanting to visit. Even Country Living jumped on board and featured it a few years ago...can't say enough about it. love. it!

LaurieAnna's is one of my favorite booths! It's all white and vintage and wonderful! And it's just my style {which could be classified as anything white with paint chipping off of it or any type of a bird or nest!} Here's a picture (from her blog) of her booth at the Nutcracker Market in Houston. Her booth is set up very similar at Canton. Beautiful!

She is doing 12 days of giveaways (and there are still 7 days left). Today she's giving away the cutest little birds (I bought two of them on Saturday) I am going to be putting mine in a small apothecary jar with birdseed and a little branch. I love these jars-here are a few beautiful examples. I also got a few 'bird' pictures. I can't wait to decorate! I'll be sure and post pictures when our room is all done with my new goodies. We are getting a new king size bed (yea!) and furniture. I'm still working everything out in my head. I'll post a few pictures when I have a chance to put together what I'm thinking.

We did get Santa pictures today. I will download the ones I took and post them soon. I'm not sure he was worth the 5 hour wait, but Momma, Landree, Hudson and I had a good time shopping, eating, and hanging out with Megan and Hayden while we waited. We got some great deals at the LOFT if you are still looking for gifts (or for yourself). I got a pair of jeans for $12 with a 20% off coupon. Seriously-you couldn't buy them that cheap at Walmart! Tomorrow we are going to get Jeff from the airport so I'm off to bed. Goodnight bloggy friends! I've missed you!

Updated: I just highjacked this picture from Megan until I can get mine downloaded. Landree thought Santa was worth the wait and that's all that matters.
