You may or may not know this, but Christmas will be here soon and I don't know about you, but I always like to know what's on other people's Christmas wish list so I can not only get ideas for my own, but because I love to hear about new things that other people love. I wanted to share some of my favorite things with you. Some of these I already use and love and others are on my own wish list.
For the home:
Pottery Barn faux mohair throw. I have this in teal which isn't for sale on the website anymore but can probably be found on eBay. It's so soft. And warm. I announced when it arrived that it was MOMMY'S blanket. Of course nobody listened to me and I have to fight for my chance to use it. I'll confess that it's dry clean only and I make it a point to not own anything that's dry clean only, but it is SO worth it!
Anthro candles. I'm addicted. One of my favorites to buy and gift is Fir and Firewood candles or votives and you can pick up this beautiful votive holder to burn them in! I also love the Fireside, Balsam & Cedar and the Branche Vermeil candles. Obviously I have a candle problem. Oh and the Boulangerie Jar Vanilla Fig candle! Bonus...the jars can be recycled when you are done. I've used them as pencil holders and to pot a succulent!
Decorating books. I adore books of all kinds and these are just some of favorite recent design books:
Life/Style by Tricia Foley
Everything in its Place by Rebecca Winward
The Shopkeeper's Home by Caroline Rowland
Keep it Simple by Atlanta Bartlett
Rifle Paper Co notepad and notebooks. I am a stationary fanatic and these are two of my favorites.
Cath Kinston Little Birds bluetooth speaker. I really, really want to justify this purchase.
Granny Chic by Tif Fussell (Dottie Angel)
Hoop La by Kirsty Neale
Stitch Along by Jenny Doh
Rosette Art by Chronicle Books
The Homemade Home by Sania Pell
Sunday Morning Quilts by Amanda Jean Nyberg and Cheryl Arkison
I don't quilt yet but 2016 is going to be my year to start. I'm looking forward to giving all of these books a workout soon.
-I love to embroider but have a really hard time doing so unless I have good sunlight which means no evening embroidery. I just ordered this Stella lamp with some birthday money and I can't wait to relax in the evening with needle and thread.
-Cavallini Celebrations stamp set
-Janome Hello Kitty sewing machine I'm also looking for a reason to justify this. Maybe as a back up sewing machine? I'm guessing I'd have to use mine more to justify a backup.
-French General notion kits
-Pam Garrison embroidery samplers. I love them all and have bought several for myself and as gifts. This one might be my personal favorite.
-Tolt Holiday Wreath Project Bag and while you're there pick up these scissors!
-Philomena cookie stamp. I love this new addition to my kitchen. This is what the cookie looks like when you stamp it.
-Raised Bloom sugar shaker
-Monogram Mug in gold. I love this and have one myself. Ok, 2. It's also available in black if you prefer. I also have one of those. Ok, 2. Quit judging.
-Back in the Day Bakery Made with Love by Cheryl and Griffith Day. I also love their first cookbook.
Just for you:
-Anthro Tea Time Flannel sleep pants. Just imagine how cute these will look on you Christmas morning!
-Birchbox This is one of my favorite things ever. For $10 a month (free shipping) you get a pretty box filled with samples of products according to your interests and needs. You can gift a subscription or sign up for one yourself. Or both. And if you use this link you and I both get a $5 credit on our subscriptions. Or don't use the link and that's fine too! But go get yourself a subscription because it's like getting a gift in the mail every month!
-Perfume Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue
-My hands down, all time favorite pen is the teal Le Pen. You can buy them individually but I'm so hooked I buy them by the box. Plus I love to gift them to my friends so that they can know the joys of this perfect pen. These make great stocking stuffers!
-Nest Pretty Things This is my new favorite necklace but all of her jewelry is just amazing! And colorful. It's like wearing your happiness.
So these are some of my favorite things. These aren't affiliated links. Well except that Birchbox link! I hope this gives you some ideas for your own wish list or to purchase for someone you love. I'd love to hear about what's on your list!
