Add It To My Wishlist

Tuesday, November 12, 2013


Hope everyone had a good weekend! Being as I work from my house I decided to extend my weekend by taking the day off from blogging yesterday. I can't report back that I accomplished very much or even did anything out of the ordinary, but the weather was sunny and windy and we did go for lots of walks in the crisp falling leaves, enjoying watching them swirl and dance around us. The weekend was pretty low-key as well, we went to the arcade and I made another trip to Powell's. Not that I don't have enough books - trust me I do, all over my house. In fact I have a stack of "to read next" books on my nightstand that I could easily reach over and dig into at any given moment, but they have been staring at me too long, and having been in a reading slump for about the last month I needed something to get me reading on the regular again. So my weekend was busy with reading as well. (Wondering what got me reading again? It was this. I can't say I love it, there's maybe something with the translation that's throwing me off, but it's a fast and easy read, it has my attention and I think it's gotten back on the reading wagon and that's certainly enough for me to like it.).

I think a component of my low-key state is that I am in the limbo of right before the holidays start. I know it's not officially time yet, but I also know soon (days? weeks? ) I will suddenly be feeling like time is running out and the holidays are just around the corner. I want to start thinking and doing but I am having a hard time getting myself to the starting line. So to get my mind in the spirit of holiday crafting, cooking and shopping I can think of no better method than creating a little holiday wishlist of my own. Granted I am not sure Santa's sleigh is big enough for a couple of these items, but if he's asking, I am just going throw it out there.

  2. I really hope Santa brings you that credenza, I know you've been lusting after one for a while. And that wishbone is fab. I don't know how I feel about the rug, it's all over the place these days, I feel like everyone has it. But I just see endless shedding and Fitz's wiry hairs getting stuck in the high pile, and my weird bf being freaked out by the texture, haha. Bring on Christmas. xo

    2. thanks, that would be awesome of good ol' st. nick but i am not counting on it. after finding that one for $35, i also feel challenged to find another that i can restore myself. but i might have to cave at some point, especially being in portland where even the most heinous of furniture labeled "vintage" is marked up well beyond value.

      and that rug . . . oh, i have loved that rug a long time! but, yes, now it's e v e r y w h e r e. still i love it though, and the texture might hide some of the crumbs my children leave all over my house ;) i also lucked out with a non-shedding pup!

  3. i too have had my eye on that golden wishbone for a while! ohhh what i would do to have that. i just can't convince myself to spend that much money on something that will only sit on my coffee table. as for the credenza, i agree with erin above. you deserve one and i know from experience you won't stop dreaming about it until you have the perfect one.

    1. well that wishbone is perfect for a wish list! it is a little more than i'd probably want to spend on something like that, but it's kind of a perfect gift price point. and, no, i definitely won't stop dreaming (or posting ;)) about credenzas until i find one! xo

  4. as so often, I'm going to ignore the holidays. I'll send a few cards, get presents for my parents. that's it. for the first time, I'm even going to spend it all by myself. right now, that feels great. but ask me again when the holidays actually come. should be interesting :)

  6. My fingers are crossed that you'll find your credenza under the Christmas tree. In my area it is the same that anything that gets the name Mid Century slapped on is marked up beyond belief. That's why I had to diy. On my wishlist are short flat booties and on my imaginary-never-going-to-happen wishlist is the Eames Lounge Chair. (Santa I was extra good this year!) xo

  9. I feel so bad, I've given up on Xmas shopping this year before I've even started. Must Muster The Energy Somehow. Where's the chocolate and coffee when I need it?
