My Christmas Wish List, er, ideas




Dear Husband, you know how you keep saying that I am so hard to shop for and you never know what to get me (even though I have an entire BLOG about things I admire and would love to acquire)?  I have made a list for you.  Some of these are a little spendy, it's true, especially since we made that deal about no gifts this year...  And considering you tell me pretty much daily that we have too many rugs (and chairs), I have too much jewellery (some nonsense about not enough fingers to wear all those rings), that we have too many pillows (never!) and too much art (since we seem to have run out of walls), and of COURSE that I have too many clothes (pffft), I have a hard time imagining you getting any of this.  Which is actually fine, because, (keep this to yourself), I actually agree with all of the above.  So consider the above simply a pretty picture of pretty things that kind of appeal to me.

Starting with that goooooorgeous ring (sorry, I am drooling like Homer all over my computer) from Toronto artist Kate Zabone.  And yeah, yeah, too many rugs, but...wouldn't this look amazing in our basement??  Lucky for you I don't know where it comes from, but I saw it on Beci Orpin's blog.  The t-shirt and twisted gold bangle are from the Invisible Children shop I blogged about the other day.  That second druzy ring is from a lovely Etsy shop called Illumanence (I highly recommend a visit for the rest of you), and the bracelets are the MoonRox ones I used pure steel will power not get at the OOAK show.  And, sweet hubster, you will be happy to know that those pillows are FAUX fur and ON SALE at Restoration Hardware.  I mean, for the others out there who may purchase them... And the lovely round painting is actually only 2 inches in diameter and is a magnet!  Cool, right?

Now if only YOU had a blog I could peruse for ideas... on the other hand... it would be all about ridiculously expensive bikes you don't need, and I don't need a blog for that. :)

xo, your loving wifey

    You really do have a thing for rings ... and rugs ... and pillows. All lovely, I might add. I'm impressed that you actually have something frugal on your list - the fridge magnet.

  3. Now now, the t-shirt is only $35 and the 'other' ring is only $38! But yes, I admit it, I have a few addictions... It's my father's fault. :P

    Totally laughed out loud at this because my husband says the same thing when all he has to do is pop over to my blog once in a while and trawl through my countless (sometimes ambitious) wishlists! Love those beautiful bracelets!
