December Photo-a-Day Challenge 6. Shopping

December Photo Challenge, Day 6. Today’s theme is “shopping”. This time of year, I love to do some local shopping to support individuals. With great sites like Etsy, you can purchase from artists who handcraft great work all over the country. When you shop locally or even online with these people, you often receive great service. This little note was sweetly written on the outside of a package I ordered from Sarah’s Stitches. Little personal touches like this make me smile.

Sarah makes awesome sewn gifts. She takes custom orders, too! Check out her Facebook page at, or visit her Etsy shop at

Will you be buying Christmas gifts from a local or online artist this year? Please share your best finds in the comments!

December Photo-a-Day Challenge 3. Red

For today’s theme, “Red”, I chose this picture of a glass Christmas tree with a red berry topiary in the background. I just love red glassware – I found this piece while shopping at a Ross store last Christmas season.

Do you have a favorite glass Christmas decoration?
