Santa? Are you paying attention?

Tuesday, December 14, 2010

I know that Santa follows my blog anonymously, so I thought I'd help him out by posting my Christmas Wish List and give him visual aids (I am here to help)!

Santa will only pick three items from my list of six because Jesus only received three gifts; it is a family tradition.

The first two items are from Anthropologie.  I love both the Pinafore Pullover Sweater and the Single Malt Necklace (although rumor has it that Anthropologie has sold out of the Pinafore Sweater already).



I would also like the Breville Milk Frother from Williams-Sonoma.  I could be a domestic goddess barista, and mayhap it would pay for itself pretty quickly because I would drastically reduce the number of coffee shop runs I'd make in a month.  (Do you think Santa is buying my rationale?)


My art teacher told me about these super awesome paintbrushes, and Santa can order them from Dick Blick.  They are Winsor Newton Series 7 Kolinsky Sable Miniature Brushes.


Aren't they pretty!

And, of course, being the nerd that I am, I have two books on my Wish List.

The first book is The Wolves of Andover  by Kathleen Kent.  It is the prequel to The Heretic's Daughter, which I enjoyed immensely.


The second book is Right-Sizing Your Home.  I need inspiration because I am considering taking everything our of our stupid formal living room no one ever goes into...not ever...and turning it into an art studio for me!  Yep.  And did I mention that the living room is the first room people see when they visit my house.  Ask me if I care.....*I don't*


Have you written your letter to Santa yet?  What is on your Christmas Wish List?

Until next time...

Christmas Blessings!

  1. you have a nice christmas list and how handy from sante claus to look at your blog:-)

    I think you are right if you don't use your livingroom, make it a studio, and if people annoy them selves when they come in, let them!
    it is your space!!!


  2. Hi Ricki Jill - Wow, you have a nice list there for Santa to choose from! If you've been nice, maybe he'll give you all of them.

    Wishing you the best Christmas my friend!

  3. Thanks, Marie! I have been a good girl this year, but we do have a strict three present rule. But guess what!?!?!? Santa just called me from Williams-Sonoma, and Barnes and Noble is on the same block, so things are looking pretty good!

    Merry Christmas to you, Marie :D

  4. I think it is a great idea to makeover your living room into a studio. I'm all in favour of using every room in the house.

    Good list you have for Santa. You need to get Santa to "follow" you ;)
