An Old Fashioned Christmas

Notes for Today

Christmas can bring lots of expectations, if too many then fatigue can settle in and
take the spark out of the season.

Everyone has their own idea of what makes Christmas work for them.
The gifts, the food, the decorations, the getting things in the mail.
In recent Christmas's I have decided on decor mainly inside with just my mechanical
snow man outside.

I don't bake as much and think more of just deserts for Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.
I used to cook and freeze for weeks. It is our family tradition to have Christmas dinner
on Christmas Eve and have Christmas Day (the leftovers) no cooking and spend time with family and friends (relax)

Shopping for gifts in the spirit of an Old Fashion Christmas (with a modern twist or two) can be found with lots of variety at One of a kind gifts for your Christmas gift giving. All original Nova Scotia art from Nova Scotia Artists.

Gift Giving Has Changed Do you agree?

Notes for Today

I suppose this really dates me but in my young years gift giving was for the most part small
luxuries , like handkerchiefs , mini perfumes (evening in paris ) panties , bars of scented soaps, towels, mittens, gloves, scarves . Practical stuff.
Things homemade were popular as well, they took time, patience and creativity.
I still have the clown that was made by hand by a childhood friends mother with an embroidered face made from cloth and thread only given to me over 45 years ago and feel it is a treasure I keep.

Creativity , and Originality is now the new wave of Gift Giving.

People now for the most part can buy most of the things they need, including electronics etc.
It is the original, hand crafted one of a kind unique Art that will endure time and create memories and be remembered as the gift to cherish. Why not Shop online at and get that original gift for that special someone or yourself. Artsycraftsyfolks specialize in Creativity from many different Nova Scotia Artists. Make gift giving special you won't be disappointed.
