I've noticed a few of you have purchased from QVC. I like to watch the Christmas shows, but I have never purchased anything. How happy have you been with the purchases?

I have bought a few items, most recently the Malden Mills 2 Sets of Sheets-- one plain, and one "holiday"--and two sets of 2 Peanuts Pillows--one set was Thanksgiving, the other Christmas. Quality wise both fully met my expectations, but it was the patterns/pictures that made me want them enough to order them and pay the shipping ($5.50 for each), I knew I wouldn't find them anywhere else. If there is anything else you are wondering about please let me know.

I bought a small ornament shaped small cookie jar/large candy dish that is decorated with mittens at a local re-sale shop. It is from Hallmark and I got it for $2, so I am happy! There was a huge sign made of metal letters with the round bulbs that read MERRY for $10, but it was so big I wasn't sure where I could find room for it close enough to an outlet, I hope I don't regret passing it up.

This morning I ordered a farm vignette from Target, it is from the Wondershop line and is galvanized. I plan to style it like a village but it will be one farmstead, I didn't order all of the pieces but I hope if I keep a keen eye out in the coming months that I will be able to add a few more pieces. And believe it or not, it already shipped, albeit in 3 different shipments, with one coming USPS, one UPS, and one FedEx!!!

I bought a few small, but varying sizes, artificial Christmas trees. One of them arrived Wednesday, one is coming today, and two will arrive Saturday.

Last year, after 39 Christmases together with a real tree, we bought an eight foot artificial tree for our main tree. We will get a real tree for the entryway.
