Shopping List Saturday

As we drive around our little town, we've been enjoying the Christmas lights in the centre, and little glimpses of people's decorations in their own homes. When I was small, my Mum always put our decorations up on Christmas Eve. Always. I would go to bed late, and the house would be in chaos, and wake up Christmas morning to a wonderland. Wow. I don't uphold this tradition....I would never get to bed! My concession? The decorations go up the week before Christmas, but I don't switch the lights on until Christmas Eve. I may give in this year and be even earlier!
However, I'm thinking about cranberries right now. Could I make some cranberry (or rosehip) wired hearts for our dining room? Hmmm. Whilst I mulled that over, I went shopping for cranberry things - here's what I found - and I want them all!

1)rose red ring/ cookoorikoo - I'm not sure why I haven't bought this already! I love it!

2)Red Currant Earrings/ clevergirl - I love the simplicity of these. Gorgeous.

3)Handbag Tote in Tapestry/ katwhitt - a little bit of Christmas for your bits and pieces - and big enough for all the other stuff we carry around, too!

4)Red Sky - Neckwarmer/Capelet/ NandaHandcrafted - isn't this fabulous? Warm, dramatic and beautiful.

5)Cranberry berry bowl/ vesselsandwares - how brilliant is this? Pick your berries, pop them in this cranberry glazed bowl, rinse your berries, drain your berries!

6)Faux Berries and Rope Wreath - 14cms (5.5") - INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING/ makalewakan - Simple and pretty. I love it!

Please don't forget to check out fellow Etsy sellers' lists - click on the Shopping List Saturday links in the sidebar for more gorgeous goodies! This week, I'm pleased to say that we have another addition to our players - welcome Jane, from Prairie Wild Rose!
Have a great weekend!

We will be putting up our decorations in another week or so.

Beautiful choices! My sister-in-law used to make those cranberry wire wreaths; they were so pretty. We had a few of them, but I think they got mislaid during one of our moves.
