shop update: more for winter collection...and Holiday Shipment Schedule!!


i've had so many ideas and projects rolling around in my head the past couple of weeks, especially with the sense of the holidays in the air. and you must understand that i am so not ready for the holidays. i'm one of those loyal christmas celebrants who waits until the day after thanksgiving to turn on the holiday tunes. i just can't get myself to enjoy them until thanksgiving has been celebrated.

even so, i feel the bug trying to creep up on me. whether it's me getting excited about the holiday drinks and cups at Starbucks to singing Jingle Bells under my breathe, the holidays are just around the corner. and as you can tell, it's even gotten a hold of one of my poppy garland headbands, kiss me under the mistletoe

so yes, here are a few more garland headbands added to the winter collection. pretty excited about every single one of these. my personal fave is holding my sailor's heart. and just like the first set, these are all LIMITED editions. as soon as the vintage buttons run out, no can do. and one more topic of business:

{much love, illy holiday schedule}
domestic orders by December 15
international orders by December 9

all orders placed after those dates will still follow the normal much love, illy order schedule (3-5 days) but i cannot guarantee that they will be at your doorstep prior to Christmas. all orders are shipped first class, but if you need it sooner, include me a msg to seller and we can talk. and one more thing...

{gift-wrapping fun}

if you've never shopped from my lil' shop before, you may not know that all orders are gift-wrapped, ready to keep as a gift for yourself or for others. well...next weekend, all orders will be Christmas gift-wrapped! i'll be sneak-previewing the wrapping this week, so be on the lookout, folks.

okay, talk about information overload.  
that's all for now. 
[happy shopping, friend!]

  10. I love that you wrap all of your orders. :) I'm usually a Christmas after Thanksgiving kind of gal but since I'm doing Christmas/Birthday party for my little one I'm trying to get ready sooner since we'll be out of town the weekend after thanksgiving. :)
