The 12 days of Christmas are in full swing but will be ending soon. Make sure to stop by http://www.makeminepink.com/shop-hop/ before it ends. All of the beautiful boutiques are offering great specials and free gifts. Get a jump on your holiday shopping with some wonderful, unique gifts for everyone on your list.
We had a quiet weekend here in CT. A bit rainy and a bit cold. The leaves are all falling so it's raking time. I did a bit of painting but spent some time getting ready for our Holiday Open House at my mother's and my shop, The Nosey Goose in Madison, CT. We preview all of our Holiday merchandise with a sale and goodies. We send out postcards to our mailing list and hope for a good turnout. It's always a fun jump start to the season. The shop smells and looks great thanks to my mother. I'll take photos when we are all decorated and post them.
I have lots of the holiday goodies on my site. I also got a new shipment of the oh so comfortable shoes we sell ... OKA b, shoes that love you. I restocked some and got a few new styles, all available on my site. More will be coming soon as well. The new ones are great for the holiday season ... black or brown mini mules with matching velvet ribbons. They are elegant and comfortable. These shoes are reflexology inspired designs made from a patented ruberish material. They are so much cuter in person!!!

The meaning of owning a "Hope Chest" is different for everyone. For some it is planning for a special wedding day that is sure to come, others use it to store heirloom linens and treasures passed down from generations. If you've been lucky enough to have a hope chest or perhaps had a glimpse into someone's, you'll find that no matter the purpose, each "Hope Chest" tells a story. What's yours?
Please join us Friday October 17th for "shopping with a twist" as the shops at Make Mine Pink present "In the Hope Chest."

I have to admit, I'm like a kid in a candy shop when the holiday merchandise starts arriving at the shop. We ordered back in August and I often forget how beautiful it all is until I start unpacking it. These photos are a few of the many items I have listed on my site this week. Like many of us, I wish my photos were better because the items are so beautiful and the pictures just don't do them justice. I love vintage inspired Holiday things, especially those that are not in typical colors. The brownish greenish glass ornaments below are so rich looking. I think I'll have to put some in a bowl on the table. At my house each year I always adorn my mantel in pinks and silvers with a touch of turquoise. No red and green for me! And when it's time, I hate taking the decorations down. Thanks for visiting ...
