12 Days * Day 11 (+winner)

I cannot believe it's already *Day 11*

This means you know that there are only 14 Days to Christmas.

I hope your preparations are going well. I so enjoyed reading through your very thoughtful, very personal and very meaningful friend gifts. I am inspired by ALL of you. Thank YOU so much for sharing.


This is the pretty little necklace that Hillary is giving my blog-reading friend, Deana.

My friend loves roosters, I try to find the most unique rooster to add to her kitchen collection. The bracelets are great, love that idea!

Deana, email me your address and put "Gift from Hillary" in the subject line. Merry Christmas and thanks for reading my blog!

NOW … here are a few more ideas to consider


Day Starter Mugs

Just way too colorul and FUN. Buy all four and give two or three away with some of your favorite tea inside!


Stephens French Vanilla Hot Cocoa

Speaking of warm drinks … this is hands-down my favorite hot cocoa and I just discovered that it is available in a six-pack from Amazon. I've ordered enough for ALL my neighbors!


Dottie Water Bottles

And how could I pass up on Pottery Barn and polka dots. I'm going to attempt to "go green" with my water drinking in 2009.

Drink UP!


  1. oooh… I have boy/girl twins, so those water bottles are calling my name!!

  2. Thanks so much!! Stephens vanilla is my fave too! I grew up in SLC – now in Wash. DC and can’t buy it here. I recently went to the Stephens website to order for my neighbors and bus drivers but they wanted a bazillion dollars to ship. Hooray for your tip and for amazon!

  3. Stacey – I just had to say thanks – I ended up ordering 2 bracelets from Hillary’s site last night. . .and passing the link along to a bunch of friends.
    a different Hillary

  4. let me just say, I wish I were your neighbor. that is a lovely gift.
    And those mugs are so fun! I do believe I could use Rejoice in What you Have. hmmm… may need to print that up and post it EVERYWHERE!!!!

  5. First congratulations Deana – I am sure you will look lovely in the necklace :)
    LOVE the mugs! Oh and I do believe one of the bracelets is on it’s way to my stocking. Santa heard me ooohing and ahhhing over it.

  6. Those water bottles just grad me. How neat.

  7. Love Stephens hot cocoa! We can’t get it here in NY so when any of the family goes west we all stock up :)
