Gift & Decor Ideas; Two Turtle Doves

Following in the tradition of the previous post, here are some gift & decorating ideas based on the line from the old Christmas carol:

"On the 2nd day of Christmas my true love gave to me... Two Turtle Doves":

This darling little tree featured on Country Living's website would be an easy project to do with children:

You could find a dove pattern online with a quick Google search & trace them onto cardstock. Cut 'em out, thread a ribbon through & hang on requisite Charlie Brown tree. I love the galvanized bucket!!

For a child's bedroom, I am loving these pieces of artwork from petitcollage. (I'm not the only one; Martha thinks petitcollage is pretty fab too & features a how-to link HERE on her website.)

For the scrapbooker or font addict on your list, this Two Turtle Doves font is perfect:

And, it's *free* for download by clicking HERE.

And how about this darling little dishtowel from Anthropologie that looks as if it was hand stitched by one of the March sisters?

This list is a little light on suggestions for the boys on your list, so what about stretching the theme a little bit & getting him Turtle & the latest Entourage season on DVD (available at Chapters or Amazon):

{ Turtle & the Entourage }

And if we're stretching the theme, why not go for the dove grey concrete bangle & ring designed by Canada's own Frank Gehry for Tiffany:

For the tween or teen on your list these dove grey & orange Nikes:

To finish... look at this girl's room painted in dove grey:

It was featured at Decor8 & designed by Martenson Jones Interiors. A perfect example of sophistication in a child's room without being too grown up!

Happy 2nd Day of Christmas, blogworld!
