I wish I had a house of stone that looked down on the sea

October 31, 2012

With Christmas rapidly approaching, it’s time to start making our Christmas lists! It’s a bit of a tradition in our family, I know that not everyone writes a gift list – but it does make Christmas shopping that bit simpler! I always prefer to start thinking with plenty of time in advance (this year I started a list of gift idea for family & friends at the beginning of October) and then add extra smaller gifts that they have put on their lists. With my new-found love of etsy there are plenty of hand-made goodies inspring me, both for my list and ideas for what to get loved ones.

 Oh gosh, how lovely is this necklace! Layered over a simple white t-shirt for the weekend, or with an LBD for the evening. I love the bound cinnamon-coloured detail at the top of the necklace. Meow!

This perfume oil sounds absolutely divine! It’s a roll-on perfume stick which is also available in coconut, vanilla bean and iced tea, as well as a range of citrus scents for the summer. Swoon.

This stamp is so sweet! I love that any surface could become a to-do list – you could stamp a page in your notebook, stamp into your diary, or stamp all over your recycling to remind you to take it out.

This suitcase is so cute! I love the fabric and stitching – this would make such a great vanity case.

It’s a clock. Shaped like a cat’s face.

Have any of my wishes caught your eye? Have you started writing your Christmas lists yet?

      Ah you must have to write a super long list to cover both Christmas and birthday!

      Me too! Although my sister has already done all of her Christmas shopping, and Trout has already bought my pressie so I think mine may be slightly shorter this year!

    I’ve had my eye on those perfume oils, but I can’t decide which one I want! They all sound so yummy
