Gifts for her

And that her is my daughter. 

Here are a few things that I got my daughter for Christmas this year.  Don't worry, she doesn't read here-that would be way too embarrassing!

Above is a canvas print from Artscow.  I used one of her photos from her trip to New York City this summer.  I'm pleased with how it turned out.

Here's a gift she pretty much knows she's getting-since she had her Teavana wishlist sent to my email and then she told me if I was going to order her this-I should do it on black Friday, since they had free shipping and some free things to offer that day.

My girl wants tea for Christmas!  Be still my beating heart!

Oh-I'm playing with this one before it gets wrapped.  She has told me before she'd like an old Polaroid instant camera.  While they can be found in thrift stores, the film is hard to come by and sometimes it doesn't work, so I've been told.  So I thought I'd get her this Fujifilm Instax 210 instant camera.  The reviews are good, and I know the film is fresh and not too terribly expensive.  I ordered this from Amazon.

 I have a few gifts for others, but they read here!

Now-I better get to wrapping so I can enjoy a few pretty presents under the tree.  This year I'm going to try to use up some of the vintage, thrifted ribbon I've had sitting around for years!

Have a good weekend everybody!

Those are very cool choices. She and you have good taste. Even better when shipping is less, or when a thrift store deal is made! Love the idea of taking one of her pics and putting it on that canvasy thing. My son would love it if I did that with one of his pics.

You're ahead of the curve -- and me. Christmas shopping is proving to be elusive this year.

I am so glad I decided to look at your blog today. After reading about the instant camera, I went on Amazon and bought one for my husband! He's going to love it! That's something I never would've thought of on my own. Actually, I didn't even know they made instant cameras anymore! Thanks for the Christmas shopping help!! Merry Blessed Christmas!

Oh, good-I'm glad! The only reason I knew about the instax is from other blogs! I think my girl's gonna love it too!
