Sunday Maria and I went the annual Nutcracker Market. The Nutcracker Market is a 4 day shopping experience that kicks off the holiday season in Houston. There about 300 merchants selling anything and everything you could possibly want…. clothes, shoes, dishes, gift items, home d├ęcor and tons of Christmas items. The Nutcracker Market raises money for the Houston Ballet Scholarship Fund. Did y’all know that Houston’s theater district has the second largest number of theater seats in a downtown area in the United States? New York is number 1. Wow~ I should work the Chamber of Commerce.
Here are a couple of my fabulous finds at the Nutcracker Market.

I went on Saturday and thought of you when I saw the monogram booth. I love the umbrella! I also found a McKenzie Childs cameo necklace I thought about getting you as a surprise ... until I saw it was $250. Oh well.

Anyway, your stuff is super cute!
