Have you started shopping yet? Happy Holidays everyone. I don't do much for decor around here, just have a fake tree with some fun ornaments. I usually go south for the holidays to La La land. I hope to have a great 2013. 2012 was a tough rough year for me, so its going to be interesting to see 2013.
I met this really great family owned business in Milan that manufactures and has traditional and unique hardware for handbags and leather goods.

the province, like a subdivision of the main town. In Southern Davao, most
of the families live in the same general area. When a couple gets married,
they build a house on their family plot of land, so everyone in the family
lives closely together. Gossip. Everyone knows what everyone else in doing;
gossip is the mainstay of life. Because there are no telephones and no
