I'm sorry this has taken a while to put up. Here is my Christmas wish list this year. Same directions as last year, color choice is in the picture, link to the site below the picture, etc. Everything is available online so you don't have to step into a mall. I know, you're welcome. One thing that is new this year is a price listing. I debated over whether that was tacky or not, but it does seem to be more practical. I want to make it as easy as possible for my family to spoil me rotten. :)
I have had my digital camera for a couple of years now and have taken over 1000 pictures. It's about time I print some out for myself. I also want to start my own photo wall (my inspiration), so this will come in handy.
Available from Amazon (only a couple in stock right now, but you can get it even cheaper from the new and used section--new only, please.)
Eureka 71A Hand-held Vacuum ($47)
The hobbit and I are planning on buying a new couch sometime after the holidays. This will help keep the cat hair at bay...and encourage my OCD tendencies. :)
Available from Amazon also.
Fresh Sugar eau de parfum spray, 1.7 oz. ($55)
I loooove this scent. I am addicted to their overly expensive Sugar lip balm and this has the same scent. Maybe I can finally throw away that empty lip balm canister that I sniff furtively in my bathroom while peeing. Yes, I really wrote that. You know you want to now visit my bathroom and look for that lip balm. You won't be disappointed.
Available from Sephora.
Jonathan Adler giraffe figurine ($22)
This is actually a picture of the larger one since I couldn't get the pic to work on the tiny one. The one I want it around 3 inches tall. I've always wanted something by Jonathan Adler. His work is so cute and fun. Oh, by the way, if you happen to have even more disposable income, I love the snail box too. :)
Available from Jonathan Adler.
I have been planning out a downstairs workspace since we moved into the new house, so I have been obsessed with office supplies.
Personal embosser, the library one ($36)
This one is really exposing me as the nerd that I am. I have wanted an embosser ever since seeing one in the now defunct Martha by Mail catalog. My library is getting to be pretty impressive (all that time working in a bookstore really helped) and I want to start marking my books. Order early if you decide to, it takes about two weeks to customize.
Available from Williams-Sonoma.
Graffiti Scribbler Duo pencil ($17)
This is an awesome pencil/artist's tool with an extra chunky lead. I will enjoy writing and sketching in my journal with this.
Available at Cheap Joe's.
Graffiti Egg-Shaped Pencil Sharpener ($3)
For that chubby lead. Cool enough to leave out on my desk though.
Also available from Cheap Joe's.
Bird Magnet/Paper clip holder ($15)
How cute is this?! Apparently, it chirps every time you touch it.
Available from Russel + Hazel.
Skull & Crossbones notecards ($20)
To offset all that cuteness. I want to frame one of the cards and use the rest. For some reason, I've been attracted to all sorts of creepy, goth things lately. I blame Douglas Little.
Available from GRDN.
The Home-Maker by Dorothy Canfield Fisher ($20)
I have wanted to buy a book from Persephone Books for ages now. It is a press that reprints forgotten classics by women. They have a catalog of about seventy books now and, I swear, they all sound so interesting from the many summaries I've read on their website. They are also beautiful books with a dove grey cover and colorful endpapers. The Home-Maker will hopefully be the first of many. *Order early if you're going to; they are based in the UK.
Available from Persephone Books.
Penguin by Design by Phil Baines ($16.50)
A book about another great publishing house. This book covers the design and cultural history of the Penguin paperback. I've actually started collecting old Penguin paperbacks. I got a couple at the used bookstore the other day and I recently purchased a new one from the Graphic Classics collection (books which have been reprinted with covers illustrated by today's graphic artists.) I bought We Have Always Lived in the Castle by Shirley Jackson, which has a cool black and white cover. The story is creepy and unsettling and I'm only a quarter of the way through. I probably would have finished by now if I didn't have to work. Anyway...
Available from Amazon.
Also, magazine subscriptions purchased on eBay are insanely cheap and a good present. Domino, Lucky, and Martha Stewart Living would all be welcome arrivals every month.
Geez, it's getting late. I need to quit watching TV while working on the blog. This entry would have been done long ago.
