In the Mail Today: 2013 Holiday Ornaments

Christmas countdown officially started here at AM Dolce Vita. You know how much I love this magical holiday! Over the past few weeks I have started to collect this year's ornaments. If I waited until December to hit the stores, I probably wouldn't be able to find any nice ones left if any at all. Crazy right? How retailers all gear up months ahead - Halloween stuff hits the shelves during the back-to-school sale; Christmas stuff is all over the place as soon as the Halloween is over; and you'd better stock up on Valentine gifts before December is over!

This vintage brass sitting deer figurine from La Manche on Etsy travelled all the way from France and arrived in the mail today.

I think I am going to keep it on my coffee table in the living room all year round.

This vintage brass buck from SPARKLES and SASS also arrived today. Isn't it gorgeous? So cheerful and spirit-lifting - just what I need under this gloomy weather! Speaking of the weather, what's up with this November eh? It's been days after days of rain and not to say part of the province was under snow squall warning already last week.

Anyhoo, back to the Christmas ornaments. This year I am thinking of an "enchanted woodland" theme, so I've been like a little squirrel stashing away these mercury glass acorn, pinecone and mushroom ornaments - aren't they pretty?
I can't wait for December to start adorning this year's tree with them. Have you started your holiday shopping this year?
