Dear December,

Dear December,
Oh how I missed you! It's been a long 11 months since we last saw each other. You left me so suddenly, rushed out with my belated birthday & a chilly New Year! Please do stay awhile. Perhaps if you could, please send some snow for a white Christmas !! I do believe I do believe in Santa!

Yours Truly,
The Goodest {halo adjustment} Girl

hehehe :)
The Boy & I picked up a tree & decorated it last night!
Wanna see ??
First, grab a yummy pepperminty chocolate covered pretzel!
{yes, we made those to munch while we embellished our tree with sparkly things!}

We donned our Xmasy hats
& smiled for the camera...
Hid some birds here & there...
Popped a few elves around...

Tyler dragging the tree through the parking lot...
"Mom, aren't you glad God gave you a strong boy instead of a whimpy girl!?!"
Indeed!


**************
One of my dear friends from High School sent me this incredible collage that she made just for me!

I hung it in my office for instant inspiration!

Every time I look at it I see something new!
Thank you Diana!

&&&&&&&&&&

I've finally managed to make a few new things for the shop! I have quite a few vintage watches lying around & pried out some of their guts :)
Taaadaaa....


This one is in the shop already:
~Time For Change~
...something needed to change,
perhaps she was asking all the wrong questions,
or maybe posing them to the wrong people.


What happened to their faces you ask?
Taaadaaaa...

I think I will be keeping this last one for myself
to wear with a bunch of bangles.
****************
Ok my birdlings, 'tis time to make dinner for The Boy. He has his first basketball game tonight! Hopefully I'll get some good shots to post tomorrow!
ohhh....
One last thing...I still have Free Worldwide Shipping &
Don't forget to become a Good Girl Fan on facebook to get the exclusive scoop on my holiday deals!

Smooches,
Johanna

Thank you for your wonderful comment! I just found out this morning that we are going to be next door neighbors at the Boylan Heights ArtWalk! I will be sure to hop over and say hi. :)

Your son is just precious. It does my heart good to see you two have such a nice relationship. I can tell he loves his mommy!

Enjoy decorating for the holidays and I am crazy about your new watch inspired items!
