Favorite Things Friday – last minute cuteness

I start my Christmas shopping in September because I know I’m going to run out of time. However, as it gets closer to the 25th I start freaking out that I’m not going to have enough little treats for the kids and my DH to open and usually make a trip to the dollar bins at Target 🙂

This year, Pottery Barn has come out with some super cute stocking stuffers and I had to make the babysitter stay late so I could rush over to the mall with the other thousands of shoppers. Oh, Tysons Corner friend & foe.

This Safe Bank will be going in my DH’s stocking so he can save up for our next anniversary trip far, far away from the maddening crowd.

And this Snail Tape Measure I will keep tucked away with me as I got to my design meetings. Who wants a big, old yellow plastic tape measure when you can have a silver snail?

We certainly don’t need these Nutcrackers from Antique Farmhouse and in fact we have never cracked a walnut in our home before, but I think they are so pretty to have out displayed somewhere. Maybe in a cute mason jar or silver tumbler or a console.

Filigree Glass Box also from Farmhouse. Super vintage & stylish for any room, any surface.

I love you little Egg Crates from Anthropologie.

Wooden Tic Tac Toe from Napa Style! Now how to keep those pieces from getting lost?

Here’s to stuffing those stockings!
