and a partridge in a pear tree...

And so, now the holiday season is upon us...marked by Burl Ives' Rudolph the Red Nose marionette-esque classic that is both heartwarming and creepy, the lighting of the menorah, and gift's December and time to get festive. While the tone of this post is, is still full of sentiment and deep thought and, er... impossibly deep pockets. In classic holiday form I will put forth my list of items I'm sure to adore and treasure! A few rules...don't judge me...don't mock me, and most of all don't confuse me with one of those blogs that suggests items that you must own...shameless plugging of jewelry, clothes, housewares, etc...although I must admit...they're actually some of my favorite blogs! I've begged no questions here and pondererd only sizes and color...below is a wish list of things I've asked for...for me, not suggestions for you, your brother, mother, sister, cousin, etc. If they so happen to like the same thing and it helps you cross them off your list then very well but, in no way shape or form am I urging you to purchase listed items to be cool, hip, or swanky. Although, I do have impeccable taste! Naughty...I know! La liste des trésors: -------------------- 1. L.L. Bean Boots...Signature collection 10" 2. L.L. Bean Adirondack Barn Coat - (classic and yet long enough to cover your classic arse!) 3. Chance Classic Striped Boatneck in Navy and Red (you can never have enough striped shirts) 4. The Satorialist by Scott Schuman (book) 5. a haircut and color 6. Hermes Birkin Bag (yes, I know...but if someone else is on the waiting list and subsequently pays for it then...swoon!) 7. Tory Burch Greta Wedge Clog 8. Papabubble candy rings 9. a Sarah Ashley Longshore original 10. Mignon Faget Animal Crackers Pelican Pendant 11. sleep 12. a James Audubon print 13. Chanel ballet flats 14. dinner on the beach with champagne 15. Phonekerchief (for dear friends at dinner) 16. Jonathan Adler peacock lollipop holder 17. a perfect pair of black pants 18. Timex field watch with colorful bands 19. Garden and Gun Secret Society membership 20. patience "That's all" - Miranda Priestly - The Devil Wears Prada image credit - Jonathan Adler Peacock Lollipop holder,


  1. Ah. A mama's Christmas list. The only time you'll see a haircut/color, sleep, and patience as luxury gift items.

    I'm asking for a shower, personally.

  2. So true Marty! You see...that's why I chose dinner on the beach(#14)rather than in a restaurant...therefore leaving showering optional!
