"Why can't Santa give me everything on my list?"
Princess Sparkles asked when I informed her Santa only gives one gift.
I told her there were a lot of children in the world.
"Well, Mommy, you get everything you want!"
Camouflage interjected from the kitchen,
"No we don't. Sometimes we want peace and quiet, but we don't get that."

Here are a few holiday outfits I wore. The first are some F21 faux leather leggings I paired with a thrifted jacket and purse (B Makowsky!), a hand-me-down sweater, and the fabulous Frye boots my sis-in-law gave me for Christmas a few years back. The second outfit is a plaid skirt, shoes and Bagdley Mischka purse, all thrifted! My mom found the latter two.
|WOMEN'S BRACELET WATCH - Born Pretty|
I recently received a women's watch from Born Pretty to review. I have to say I was skeptical at first, seeing that the bracelet watch was less than $10. But when I tried it on, I couldn't believe how amazing it was! Not only was it stylish, but easy to wear with strings you pull to tighten. It's made out of real leather with wooden beads, and looks way more expensive then it is! Definitely check out their site, there are so many watches to choose from and Spinning Threads readers can get an extra 10% off by using the code CLAIRELC10.
I love the holiday season. It's filled with so many fun and funny moments --
- Princess Sparkles' 5 page Christmas list
- Pigtails handing me ads she cut out to practice using scissors
(and tell me what she wants for Christmas)
- Princess Sparkles telling my sister her friend at school told her Santa is
just your parents putting presents in your stocking but she doesn't believe that.
- Bucket finally getting some "boy" toys.
But most of all I appreciate being at home with the family, even though I don't always get peace and quiet. Santa might only dish out one gift but there are fantastic after-Christmas sales and sometimes I even get cool things in the mail, like leather bracelet watches!
