All of a sudden Christmas is nearly upon us, its such an intoxicating time and I relish the magic moments that it brings. The dilemma this year is how old should one be to stop making a list and succumb to the yearly box of shortbread biscuits and bath salts? I always have and probably always will make a list, it mainly causes great amusement when my family get to see it as I am a bit on the eccentric side when it comes to gifts that will bring me joy. Here are some of the things on my list this year…
The cutest rabbit to go on my gallery wall up the staircase from Belle and Boo
Papa Stour’s gorgeous Cherry red Fairisle hot water bottle to keep me toasty
Here’s a couple of the quirky ones, I love kitchenalia, so vintage baking trays from RE are a must, how many pretty little pastries have these made in the past? I’ve also got a bit of a soft spot for enamel milk pots and Labour and Wait do a lovely one.
I want to start collecting vintage tins to put bits and bobs in so any from Mabel & Rose will be most welcome!
I have been inspired this year by so many wonderful and talented people that it made me want to get crafty again, so this cross stitch cushion will do the trick from Granny Knits
I always have books on my list, I am working my way through all the classics, I have a few copies of Jane Austen’s novels but Persuasion and Northanger Abbey are missing, the Penguin Hardback Classics are pretty too.
Not forgetting my passion for interior books I have a few on there too. Table Style ~ Liz Belton is stunningly beautiful and full of inspirational ideas for Tea with Ruby. Then a guilty pleasure book by Katherine Sorrell ~ The Vintage Modern Home which will be poured over with glee.
Of course even after all the quirky and unusual wants a girl can never have enough Chanel No 5 it is my all time favourite.
Then to finish it all off I have a wanton need for some sparkle from Rose & Aster, isn’t it the most fabulous find!
Do you think I will find any of them in my stocking this year? Fingers crossed one or two may make an appearance, that’s if I’ve been good.
