The Gifts of the Season
Reblogged from Harper Beresford post November 25, 2012
I am in the habit of looking not so much to the nature of a gift as to the spirit in which it is offered. ~ Robert Louis Stevenson
It’s that time of the year again when we fight in the store for the last $180 TV, we find out at the last minute we have to make 4 dozen cookies for an exchange the next day, the snowblower is on the fritz when the first snow has come, and our boots have a hole in them. (OK, this is my own personal experience—your mileage may vary.) Amidst all this, however, is joy—seeing kids wait for Santa, visiting with friends you haven’t seen in a while, enjoying the beauty of the first snowflakes, and oh yes.. the annual Peace on Earth Hunt. If you don’t think that’s pure joy, you’re a scrooge.
For the fifth year, the Peace on Earth Hunt is taking place from December 1 to January 6. During the hunt you can visit OVER TWO HUNDRED designers and find their beautiful holidays gifts made just for you as you search through their shops. Now I am not a big hunter, but this one is certainly worth it, considering the quality of the creators and the gifts being offered. Consider this gorgeous dress from joeylin. I have been meaning to blog her work for a while—mesh done in transparent textures so the look is ethereal and alluring. She is offering this dress as a gift during the hunt. With mesh pieces combined with a flexi skirt, it’s well worth the search and a piece on par with anything else she sells in her store.
Heather Beebe, whose generosity knows no bounds, is offering this gorgeous skin as her gift to hunters. She is setting it out in a set of four shades with varying cleavage and brows so you don’t get stuck with one look. That’s quite a generous gift. Mirja Mills made this fantastic hair in black and white for your fantasy looks with flowing wavy locks and a stunning silhouette. Giving the option of two colors is kind. And Tiffy Vella is giving away this exquisite snowflake-shaped necklace and earrings with matching ring. Undoubtedly this took her quite a bit of time and skill to create.
It’s a lot of work for the organizer, Sequoia Nightfire, to organize this hunt. She does it with no compensation that I know of, and the creators receive nothing but your eyes on their store in return. So remember, hunters, each one of these items is a gift, an offering from a creator to share their talents, their time and their artistry. Thank the creators with purchases or with kind words, and enjoy the bounties of the season.
God gave you a gift of 86,400 seconds today. Have you used one to say “thank you?” ~ William Arthur Ward
