Christmas Wish List 2011

I always love to hear what other people are putting on their Christmas wish list and thought I'd share what's on mine.

Books, books and more books. Some of these I happen to know are already on the way and I will probably take my birthday money and buy the ones I don't get. I can never get enough books! They are my number one favorite present to get and give.

From Sur La Table: A marble pastry board to get me through until I have marble counters:

Just about anything from Anthroplogie would make me happy but these items are especially high on my list:

Likewise, just about anything from Cath Kidston would make me happy.

Alright, I have a confession. You know how some people drunk dial? Well. I sleep shop. It's the downside of having my laptop on my nightstand and easily accessible credit card info. Last night, after going back and forth for days about whether or not to order myself some pre-birthday goodies, I took the plunge while in a sleepy stupor. Unlike the drunk dial, which you always regret the next day, this I did not. The first 2 items on this list should be on the way to me soon.

A tripod for my camera
Some aqua twine

and some perfume

 I'm not an extravagant girl and we have a pretty small holiday budget compared to most people I know. I may only get a few things off my list and that's fine with me. Sometimes it's the dreaming that's the most fun! What's on your list?


  1. I'm so proud of you for ordering you Kath stuff!

    Hmmmm also I already got you at least one thing from this list weeks ago ; )

  2. You have some great stuff on your list!

  3. The Anthro berry boxes are high, high, high on my list, too! Love those things! I want every color, and also the blue and white in the larger size.
    Have you seen them in person? Held them? Perhaps bestowed a kiss on the blue one?
    If so, I'm jealous.
    You have good taste, JJ!

  4. Love the marble! I want one, too!
    xo, Cheryl

  5. What a good the cute owl! ;D

  6. Gotta love a girl who knows what she wants. I always think books are wonderful to give and to receive. Sounds like maybe a Happy Birthday is in order? Hugs!

  7. Ooohh....I need a tripod, too!

    And that aqua twine is just the cutest! I would like some brown paper packages tied up with that string under my tree!!


  8. I love Philosophy perfume! Pure Grace is my most favorite. I wear it almost every single day.
    And the Kath stuff is awesome as well!
    I hope Santa brings you some of those goodies this year. Our Christmas budget is small as well...but it is so much fun to dream, isn't it. :)

  9. I love your list. I love Cath Kidson stuff, too. I got that Grace sampler for my birthday last year and I love every one of the fragrances...and I am fussy about fragrance.

    Whatever you get-you will love! xo Diana

  10. what a great idea! I have been swooning over owls and that one is a cutie!

  11. My list is all about art supplies ... I guess being an artist that makes sense. I feel like a kid in a candy shop touching all those new tubes of paint in gorgeous colours

  12. Love your list! I also love the twine, and the Philosophy Grace products.

  13. Decorate is on my list and now you've gone and done it...I need those Cath Kidston books, as well.

    Tripod? Now I have to add it to my list!

    I'm going to check out the marble because that would be just perfect for baking - we don't have marble counters, either.


  14. I do adore your style Miss J! Coach Poppy perfume is on my list - books - and the new 13 cup KitchenAid food processor. : -)


Thank you for taking the time to say hello today! I always love to hear what you have to say.
