What's on Your Wish List . . . Dandee??

It seems like every conversation I've had with friends lately has included Christmas shopping. Do you dread it??? I do. I have to get going and get shopping because I haven't done a thing. Not one thing!!! So while I'm shopping, I've asked a few of my "groovy/in the know" friends to guest blog for me and tell us what is on their Christmas wish lists.  They might have some awesome ideas that you might like too!!!



First on the lineup is my friend Danyelle.




We met in cyber world. She has a really cool blog called Dandee that I found lurking one day. And on that very day, she had some really cute calling cards that she had designed for a friend. So, I emailed her and asked her if she would make me some. And she did. We've stayed in touch -- because we have things in common. We love to create, and cook, and sew, and think up fun party ideas.  We even like the same books and movies.  Boy I wished we lived near each other, we could have some kind of fun.  She's a talent that Dandee. You need to check out her blog because she always has something interesting going on at home.


Here's what's on Dandee's Christmas wish list . . .


A few years ago my husband and I started the Want, Need, Wear, Read gift giving tradition in our home. You can read more about it here. These are the treats I'm hoping to find nestled under the tree Christmas morning.


Want:


This pretty kissing bird ring from Odette New York is definitely a want. A major, major want.



Need:


I've been searching high and low for the perfect clock for my craft room. I love the simplicity of this Uncomplicated Modern Box Clock from  Decoylab. It's a need. Really.


Wear: 


Traditionally in our home, the "wear" category means new pj's. These stripey pants make me happy. 

Read:

I have been in love with these pretty Penguin Classic Cloth bound books since I first spotted them over a year ago. Why do I still not own a single one? It's baffling, really. I'd like to start my collection off with Pride & Prejudice, Sense & Sensibility + Emma. They're my favorites.

Post Script from Crystal . . . I am already wanting these awesome books so I can stare at the covers.  Soooo beautiful!!  Worth building a library with these babies.  I've read most of them, they are all great reads!   Start with Great Expectations, one of my favorites.

Wow I love those books. And neener neener, I am done with my Christmas shopping. Besides buying something for my husband and myself (but we know what we're getting ourselves...) and taking the big girls to buy a present for the 2 year old. Mwuahahaha! I love being Santa!
