Hustle and Bustle




'Tis the Season!  We're all a bit busier this time of your!  And then, before you know it, the holiday season is over!

That is why it's a good idea to take a "breather" once in awhile and enjoy the festive time of year!  Take a drive at night and look at the beautiful Christmas lights!  I used to do that with my kids all the time, and I'll still go by myself if I can't find anyone to go with me!  I have my favorite developments that I know won't disappointment me!

Take time to have a friend over and enjoy coffee, tea, or wine!  Even if it's just an hour chat, it will do you good!

I also love to take a little time to visit a nursing home and bring a little gift for everyone.  I just buy little things like miniature Christmas trees at Pat Catans or Michaels Craft Store and print out a little Happy Holidays tag to go on it!  Everyone loves this little surprise!

So take time to enjoy all the wonder of the season...before it passes you by!  And I can't help but put in a little plug for our wonderful Etsy Vintage Team!  Be sure to check out and enter "etsyvintageteam" in the search, under "vintage" to find plenty of wonderful Christmas gift ideas (and maybe a little something for yourself!).

Happy Holidays!

Great reminder! It's all too easy to get caught up in the hustle and forget to "live each moment to its fullest".

What a nice message! My FIL's in a nursing home and I know he appreciates the kind thoughts of others.

(P.S. Love that china from 11Kari.)
