We got our tree today. We go to the Christmas tree farm every year and little bean got to see Santa. Lovely day except we are all sick.
I will be completely honest here. I prefer my tree just bare with only a bit of bead garland. But of course we will deck it out in all those felt ornaments I made last year. No vintage ornaments until little bean is older.

Strictly shopping local this holiday. No big stores, no internet shopping this will help our economy far more than saving a few dollars by shopping at target, walmart, amazon, etc...
Sounding preachy I know but you might want to consider doing the same in your town. Some of my favorite RED BANK shops if you are LOCAL and haven't checked them out are
Funk & Standard Variety Store
Fragile Earth Stuffed Animals
Ten Thousand Villages Red Bank
T. Berry Square and
jacks music shop.
Of course I really love the consignment shops like Cottontails Children's Consignment and the Arc gently used is so much better for our environment than buying new.
ASBURY PARK is full of small independent owned business take a trip down Cookman Ave and Mattison and you can find wonderful things in all the shops. My personal very favorites there though are
Holdfast Asbury Park
and of course Parlor Gallery
