New Purchases for the Holidays & An Item You Asked About is Back

Before I forget, wanted to let you know this adorable Christmas Vacation Wrapping Paper is back in stock. I had several folks ask me about it last year and I couldn’t find it in stock at that time, but it appears to be back for this year. This has to be my favorite Christmas wrapping paper ever!

Christmas Vacation Wrapping Paper, Bringing Home The Tree


I love the whimsical design plus, it’s really nice quality paper. There’s also a lot of paper on each roll, so it goes a long way. You’ll find it available here: Christmas Vacation Wrapping Paper.

Christmas Vacation Wallpaper, Perfect for Christmas Presents


Yesterday I stopped by Marshall’s to see if they had their Christmas goodies in and I found a few things I couldn’t leave without. You may remember this big guy that I found in Pottery Barn a few years back. I love to use him as a centerpiece in my autumn and Thanksgiving tables.


I also have a set of these individual turkey soup tureens found in Old Time Pottery many years back.


I spotted this cute turkey gray boat (is it still called a boat when it’s a turkey?) and thought he would work well with my other turkey pieces.

The other item I picked up was six of these beautiful reindeer wine glasses. My pictures do not do them justice! They are such nice quality, feel like delicate crystal!

I couldn’t find them online to give you a link but here’s the packaging in case it helps. If you love them, stop by your Marshall’s soon because I don’t think these will be around very long. I may go back and purchase a few more for breakage because they are delicate and beautiful!

Marshalls always has the cutest pillows for the holidays. I always love their Christmas pillows and have so many that I’ve purchased there over the years. I spotted this one online just now—so cute! The back is plaid–love! You’ll find it here: Ski-Winter Themed Pillow.

I wish I had a beach cottage, I would so get this pillow if I did! If you have a beach house, you’ll find this Beachy Christmas pillow here: Beachy Christmas. You’ll find all their holiday pillows and holiday decor here: Holiday Decor.


Joanne, a lovely BNOTP reader, emailed me to let me know about a sale that was going on at Macy’s on one of my favorite Villeroy & Boch Christmas patterns called, Toy’s Delight. Thanks, Joanne!

I used the Toy’s Delight salad plates in this previous Christmas table: Christmas Table with Dept. 56 Churches.

I used it again in this Christmas table: Christmas Dinner in Toyland.

Since I only had 4 salad plates, last night I purchased 4 more in this adorable pattern. Unfortunately, it appears the sale at Macy’s ended last night.

But they are still on sale here: Villeroy & Boch Toy’s Delight and the salad plates are on sale here: Villeroy & Boch Toy’s Delight. I think that may even be a better sale price than what I paid at Macy’s.


So, the Christmas shopping is well underway over here! I definitely have the holiday spirit–love this time of year!

  1. I really love those reindeer glasses. Would love to get that wrapping paper–also my favorite–but alas, we do not exchange gifts anymore. Remember to show us the presents after you wrap them.

  2. Hi…I know this is different post but wondering if you got your roof cleaned? We need ours done, live not too far, and looking for a company to do it. Thanks.

    • Not yet. I’m almost tempted to not do it because the whole roof is almost the same color now. If I do go through with it, the company I was going to use is: Georgia Pressure Washers & Roof Cleaning. I liked my communication with Joshua, he seemed very professional. Their website is GaPressureWashers . com . Lisa, if you have any trouble finding his phone number, email me at [email protected] and I’ll email it back.

      • Thanks, Susan. I contacted a few companies but the price was very high and the first one didn’t feel too good about. I appreciate letting me know who you spoke to. I’m going to give them a call for an estimate. And I love your blog, you were my inspiration when I built my screened porch. Now my favorite place to nap, lol.

  3. Just thought to let you know that the Christmas wrapping paper (Christmas Vacation) is also available at Current Catalog at such a low price!! Current Catalog also sells the gift labels that go with the paper. I love that wrapping paper!! Thanks for tipping us off that it is once again available!

    Susan, thanks for always being so helpful by sharing all your great finds. I have purchased so many quality products because of your suggestions. I purchased very similar metal on glass reindeer wine goblets from pier1 several years ago–love them, and they were such a big hit at a Christmas party we hosted. I love unique finds like that. There’s nothing like outdoor gas lighting to give one that “Dickens” feeling. I surely miss ours and hope to have it again when we build the retirement home. Hugs!

I'd love to hear from you! Please leave a comment!
