Tis the season! Thismomloves hand embroidered the Snowstorm Santa design on a white linen dish towel. I am always looking for sweet and thoughtful handmade gifts to give, and this piece would be perfect! It’s always great inspiration to see how you can create some of your own hand embroidered gifts, or if not, buy some from a local craft fair and support the handmade community this holiday season!

Santa Claus is coming… for braaiins! At least he is in this adorable stocking from Cushion Rock, packed with goodies like a little gnomie santa and a tasty gingerbread man. I may be a little weird, but I’d love to wake up to this delight on Christmas morning!
