Sippin’ Safari

Cute cozies are great for parties.

You will go “wild” over these safari cozies by ChatterboxBeach. These cozies are knitted with khaki cotton and topped with brown fun fur yarn.

A monkey highlights this drink cozy.

They feature a set of 6 animals including an elephant, panda bear, lion, giraffe, zebra and monkey. They fit bottled and canned beverages as well as some tall glasses. They are festive as well as useful for keeping scratches and water marks off the tables. Also, they make it easier for everyone to keep up with their own drink in a unique way.

ChatterboxBeach is wrapping up it’s Christmas in July celebration with a knitted angel with curley hair. This beautiful knitted angel will make a perfect addition to your Christmas decorations this year or a great addition your angel collection to display year round. Her white lace wings compliment the sparkle of her patterned dress, which is hand knitted in a white and metallic silver yarn. At 6 inches tall with an 8-inch wingspan, she stands on her own or you can add a ribbon for a beautiful ornament for your tree. Better yet, add her to the top of your favorite holiday tabletop tree.

Christmas in July — Tree Decorations

Display your child's school picture in a frame ornament on the holiday tree.

Each year, the kids and I look forward to placing special ornaments on our Christmas tree. They all hold a special memory. At ChatterboxBeach, we enjoy making different ornaments each year. Our creativity usually soars. This year, we’ve gotten off to a great start.

Homemade spool ornamment

Our selection includes fabric picture frames, word puzzles, sewing spool and seashell ornaments. In addition, SisterM once again has made her popular hand-knit baby Jesus ornaments.

 

Ornaments are a gift in themselves, but they also can be used as party favors, gift toppers and stocking stuffers during the holidays. I also like to give ornaments as wedding gifts.

Christmas in July — Wrapped in Warmth

With summer heat reaching breaking temperatures, we’re thinking about how nice warmth feels at Christmastime. A soft, dark green Chenille scarf can be purchased for the holidays and worn throughout the winter months. Pair the scarf with a little wardrobe red for a festive look that keeps you warm and stylish whether you are running errands, attending church services or going to a party. The scarf is a one-size-fits-most and makes a thoughtful gift.

Holiday Sweet Tooth

Candy Cane Topper

Candy canes are a special treat at Christmas time. Why not give the school bus driver or your special hair stylist a jar topped with a red and white cross-stitched candy cane lid cover. Fill the jar with individually wrapped candy canes or peppermints and you’ve got the perfect gift. Or consider putting the jar with candy on a table for guests in your own home.

Christmas in July — Dressing up the bottle

Dressed to impress

Wine is an essential part of many holiday meals and parties. But presenting the hostess with a nice bottle of wine in a brown paper bag makes no sense. If someone goes to the trouble of picking out a special bottle of Chardonnay or Merlot, why not present the gift in an attractive style.

 

Chatterbox makes bottle gift-wrapping easy during the holidays with a variety of attractive wine bottle covers. Our favorite is an adorable Santa apron. The cute accessory adds sparkle to any dinner table décor and acts as a conversation starter for holiday parties.

 

If wine is not your beverage of choice, the apron also dresses up sparkling cider, dish soap, olive oil, hand lotions or whatever bottle you would like to display in a festive fashion.

 

It is the perfect gift for a hostess, teacher, neighbor or family member.

 

As an added bonus, the apron fits dolls 16 to 18 inches. All doll owners would love to get this apron for Christmas, birthday or maybe in their stocking. After your guests have gone home, your grandchild’s American Girl doll will look fantastic in this for the holidays.

Festively wrapped

Thinking about your Christmas table and gift-giving now might offer you more time to enjoy the holidays with friends and family in December. Extra bottle covers also are good to have in case someone you weren’t expecting (and didn’t buy for) stops by with a present or invites you to their home. Slip the cover over a bottle of wine and you have an instant gift.

 

ChatterboxBeach offers a variety of hand-knit and fabric bottle covers perfect for holiday gift-giving, décor and celebrations. We will be featuring Christmas in July products for the rest of the month. To see more holiday gifts available from ChatterboxBeach, visit

Wreaths and red

 

 

Christmas in July — Here’s Why

Pillows are small ways to spread big holiday cheer.

Planning for Christmas and the winter holidays requires a lot of thinking time.

Decorations, gifts, food, travel, cards and letters, music, the theater and ballets, dinner parties, church services and the neighborhood cookie exchange all need to come together smoothly.

The best way to begin preparing is to start thinking about Christmas in July.

ChatterboxBeach may have just what you are looking for to add sparkle to your holidays. Thinking about the Christmas season now might give you more time to enjoy the holidays with friends and family then. For the next two weeks, our shop will feature some of our favorite holiday items.

These cross-stitched Christmas tree pillows feature a special design drawn by SisterC’s son. Beads top off the presents underneath the trees. The materials used for the backs of the pillows vary. Some are finished in a soft, red velvet-like material. Others feature fabric in gold cotton or a variety of Christmas trees pattern.

Cross-stitched tree with beaded gifts

The pillows make great gifts for anyone on your list, including teachers, neighbors, favorite aunts, children and men who have everything but want nothing. The pillows are delightful to display year after year. They are small enough to be displayed as large ornaments. Just place them in the branches of your Christmas tree or on a bookshelf. They make great party favors and are good to have on the closet shelf, too, in case someone you weren’t expecting (and didn’t buy for) drops by with present!
