cthulhu_ornamentYeah, I know we haven’t even celebrated Thanksgiving yet, but I need to start thinking about gifts for people. I love the holidays in so many ways, and one of the reasons is because I want EVERYTHING. I have this dumb image in my mind of exactly how I want my holidays to be and even though it won’t turn out that way and I will burn things and run out of cookie making time and my lights will be all lopsided on my house I still get all swoony over the magic of the holidays and I love scouring the Internet for things that fit this image I have in my mind.

I mean, yeah, I’m not even close to Martha Stewart but I’m not above totally geeking out over all of the cuteness I have seen, especially when it comes to Christmas ornaments, because even though I may not have a magazine worthy house at all times I can bedeck a tree with the best of them. Plus, I love giving and receiving Christmas ornaments. They are cheap, there are a million different types, and most people who have a tree usually enjoy receiving them, especially if they are attached to a bottle of wine.
