My French Find

Even though Christmas is four months away, if you are one that gets a jump on the holiday by planning early, visit My Adobe Cottage on Etsy. They may have a few things from your shopping list. My favorite is this sweet Joyeux Noel, Black Toile Christmas stocking just waiting to be filled by Père Noël. Click on the photos to visit their shop!
