For The Young At Heart!!!

Christmas is for Kid’s right? Well, then I am a BIG kid!!!

I do have three wonderful, beautiful, perfect, talented, smart, grandchildren, so I am always on the outlook for fun things to do with and for them during the Christmas season.

The ideas I am about to show you are not just for kids, but they have a fun whimsical look to them so they remind me of children.

This is one of the cuter ideas I have seen in a long time. I am going to try and make these with Grammy’s Christmas children. That is what I call my grandchildren at Christmas time.

You can go here to find out how to make these adorable little houses. I love the name of her blog, Not Martha. I am not a Martha either so we have a lot in common.

I  have a sleep over with Grammy's Christmas Children so the Moms and Dads can go Santa shopping. I love doing this for my family and especially for this Grammy!!!  You can never get enough of our Grandchildren!!!!

How about writing out their name with sparkly pipe cleaners instead of a boring name tag.

Christmas mice! The only mice that are acceptable in our house!!

I saw this idea on Designs by Gollum last year and made them for my grandkids. They are so easy to do. A chocolate dipped cherry for the body and a kiss for the head. Tubes of icing for eyes and little red nose. Slivered almonds make perfect ears.

Over at the blog  A Thoughtful place I found this darling idea. This is a new blog to me and I must say I looooove this blog for ideas!!! Be sure and go by and see what you have been missing if you are not familiar with this wonderful blog. Tell her Kathysue sent you !!! I promise you will not be disappointed!!

I love this necklace!! The price is unbelievable for such a pretty piece.

I can see wearing this with a winter white outfit for Christmas!!

I told you it would be worth the wait and there was a reason I was showing you Sunburst mirrors afterall!!!!

Be sure and take a visit to Max and Chloe as they have some great gifts for under $50 and under $100.

Here are a couple  more pieces that caught my eye……

This initial necklace by Diane Yang comes in different colors, but these are the two that I loved and these are under $50. What a great gift this would make for someone!! (me,me,me!)

I hope this gives you a couple of ideas for gifts and maybe a new resource for some fun and unusual designs in jewelry.
