This past weekend marked my fourth turkey dinner in the last two months, and with those family functions behind me, it's officially time to start gearing up for another jam-packed Christmas season!
I've yet to bust out my tree (not our tree, mine... Christmas is definitely not Marc's scene!) or hang any lights, but one thing I have done is give plenty of thought to my shopping list.
Being the compulsive list-maker that I am, I've also created a wishlist for myself, just for the hell of it!
It's a little ridiculous and self-indulgent (duh, it's a blog) but nonetheless, here are a few items that would feed my insatiable appetite for colour and also keep in line with my mid-century modern taste...
Turquoise KitchenAid 2 Qt. Curling Teakettle - $29.99
Vetiver Green West Elm Herringbone Quilt (Queen) - $150
Vintage Walnut and Gold Sunburst Clock - Prices Online Vary
Turquoise Urban Outfitters Madeline Chair $349
Anthropologie Zinna Handles (for I don't know what... yet) - $18 ea
Perhaps an Eames Molded Plastic Armchair or two from DWR for good measure - approx. $262 ea
Too extravagant for a Christmas wishlist? Yes. Collectively out of my own budget? Definitely! But what can I say?
When you spend most of your time trying to work within your budget, a little unrealistic daydreaming is bound to occur here and there!
What's on your design wishlist this year? Will you pick up items for yourself or the house while shopping for loved ones? Do tell!
