~ A Few of my Favorite Things ~

old world holiday dress by TheMeasure
I love, love, love this sweet little eco friendly dress by TheMeasure. After news this week that I'm going to be an aunt (!!!!) I'm on the look out for cute little girl things.

~ Words ~

Persuasion by Jane Austen
'You pierce my soul. I am half agony, half hope. Tell me not that I am too late, that such precious feelings are gone for ever. I offer myself to you again with a heart even more your own than when you almost broke it, eight and a half years ago. Dare not say that a man forgets sooner than woman, that his love has an earlier death. I have loved none but you. Unjust I may have been, weak and resentful I have been, but never inconstant.' Captain Wentworth

I adore this book. And a happy ending.
Happy Thursday, sweet friends!

Christmas tree ornament by FirstLightPhoto
I love, love, love this sweet little photograph ornament. It's such a timeless style, and just perfect for my rustic red and green Christmas tree. 
Devoted to Peace perfume by IlluminatedPerfume
Santa, THIS is what I want you to bring me. Completely natural and created with love, this fragrance 'is warm with a strong presence of vanilla, champa flower at the heart topped citrus and spice in the tops notes.' I could not imagine a more beautifully descriptive sentence.
Red Baby Ninfea vegan bag by ninu
Made to order in Italy, this bag would dress up absolutely anything. Crafted of vinyl, it's perfect for the vegan on your list. And the fashionista. Pretty much anyone. You can find these lovely gifts by clicking on the captions under the photos, browsing my favorites on etsy and in my pinterest holiday guide.
