Christmas Shopping over at UncommonGoods

It’ beginning to look a lot like Christmas. Who has their tree up all nicely decorated?? We do, we put our Christmas tree up on Nov.1 its our little families tradtion to put the tree up way before Thanksgiving. We love it that way. The holidays are my favorite time of the year. It’s a great to be around family eat some delicious  food and just make beautiful memories. With all that, of course come presents, I gotta say I love giving making someones day makes my heart happy. I recently came across UncommonGoods.com  they are an online marketplace offering creatively designed, high-quality merchandise at affordable prices. They also offer many items that are handmade, if you know me well enough by now. You know that I love and buy handmade all the time I love to support small businesses and handmade. UncommonGoods sent me this custom mug set with my parents anniversary date and initials. My parents just recently celebrated 28 years of marriage, figured it’d be a great gift for them. Plus, its their daily routine to drink coffee and tea in the am and catch up on the plans for the day.

My First MugSwap !! #mugswap2013

Mug Swap, what ?? I seen a photo pop up on my Instagram feed about the upcoming swap – hosted by  Kim . I was totally intrigued and thought ‘I gotta join in on the fun’. 

My assignement was Katy . She described their taste as: birds, maps/globes, vintage, trees, leaf decor, JEEP girl. Along with a little bit about her.  I’m a lover of vintage goods & old houses…just moved into a 1938 house. Starting the homeschool journey this fall. Momma of 2 littles, married to my Lifetime Love for 10 years.

It was so much fun, searching for the ‘RIGHT’ mug. I wasnt too sure what to get her, but as soon as I seen it on Etsy. I knew I had to get her that one. It was about her ‘New Home’, vintage, it also had lead decor. Everything about this mug to me was perfect for her. I’m so glad she loved it, it felt great to be able to make someone else day, to give. Katy and I are now friends on Instagram and its just so nice to be able to have a new friend and share some interest, most importantly GOD.MugSwap 2013

 Now what about my mug  ??MugSwap 2013

Her name is Emily, she really paid attention to detail, as far as, what I wrote under my ‘likes’. Since i love nautical things, she figured this super adorable mug fit the description well…and … IT DID!!!  The colors are some of my favorite. Its bright, big and the octopus looks amazing. Emily also sent a cute little notepad and lip balm. This swap was awesome, you get to make new friends, and give to others. Such an amazing feeling. Looking forward to next years. Thank you Kim for hosting this amazing swap.
