what do you want?

if you sat on santa's lap, what would you tell him you wanted for christmas? come on, the line is short, and santa looks nice enough. what would you tell him?

tell me and i will make a post about it. i think it will make a fun read. i will start...

bethy: i want a wall canvas from curly girl designs. i just smile whenever i see her work. my favorite is the one with the girl riding on the vespa.

suburban mom: I'll have to think about what I want...I'll be back. Oh, the gift I am most excited about is a very cool Anatomy book. I know, I know, I'll just put the big D on my forehead right now.... :)

lizziefitz: Santa, I will take Pine Cone Hill PJ's.

chriskauf: I would like a round mirror with nail heads all around the edge, and a White Kitchen Aid mixer. Oh and the round black table I already bought myself, its been in my house for two weeks and my hub hasn't noticed it yet. Hehe.

katie: On the top of my "Dear Santa" list was a Martha Stewart enameled cast iron dutch oven. And, out of the blue, my husband surprised me with it just yesterday as an early Christmas gift! So next on my list is...a pair of tap shoes!! (No, I do not know how to tap...but tap shoes would greatly improve my dance routines on the kitchen tile floor...Who doesn't want a pair of clacky shoes?) ....a-clacky-clack, a-clacky-clack, a clack-clack-clack...

jerusalem: I really want the "Feed Bag" from the World Food Programme. Not only is it for a good cause, but it is made out of burlap (my favorite textile) and would hold all my junk!!

ashley: i want more time. time alone. time to organize. time to plan. time for people to put things back where they belong so mommy doesn't feel like she needs to. time to sleep in. time to go have coffee with my girlfriends. time for dates with my husband. time alone. that is serioiusly what i want. just more time. it seems to be slipping away so fast.

libby: Cello lessons. Then maybe someday I could jam with Yo-Yo Ma. :)

jen@the cottage nest: i think if I could have anything it would be the chance to have the entire holiday season to do over again. It's gone much too quickly. Otherwise I would settle for a shopping spree at Anthropologie!

sugar bear: I want my husband to finish the half finished home projects! I would also like some Garnet Hill sheets.

bethany hissong: I love the curly girl calendar but they're sold out!!! If I could have anything for Christmas, I would ask for new red siding for my house!! I've always wanted to live in a red house :)

liz: I'd like more time alone in the mornings in my office. Time to write little happy stories and sip from my coffee mug and watch the sun shine through my red and white curtains. I'd like some more of that.

trish: I'd like skeins and skeins of beautiful wool and someone to teach me how to knit. And a year of personal chef services.

kellie: Can I stop time so my little one doesn't grow up? She's so sweet and cute and funny. But alas, I know that's not possible! So instead, I really want a set of Martha Stewart flannet sheets from Macy's with a village scene on them. And a few good books.

emily: for my husband, who was deployed several months ago, to come home. i know i can't have that, so all i can do is wish for peace on earth! that saying truly hits home this year!

oh those are so cool! I want one too. They remind me of storypeople - have you see those prints? We have a few of them plus a very cool mirror - I love it.

I posted the recipe after you asked, it wasn't there, you were good to ask. I suppose I should have told you here that I had posted it, dumb. Love the chair is it new?

The materialistic side of me wants a Sugarboo frame, but I really, really, really want a baby.

I didn't play before Christmas but as I came back here AFTER (and since you're not posting;) I want the chair you have in this photo. In fact, I want 8-10 of them for my dining room. Can you help me find them?

Kim

kimber - i do too! trouble is, they can't be ordered :( at least not from where i found it. i have been able to find the armless white ones (you can see them with my dining table) here and there as i drop in. i am always hoping another one will show up. it is an amazing store here in our area...but no ordering allowed and no website. :( they do have another shop in charleston south carolina. where are you?

Hi Bethy ~
I had to come back and comment to let you know I got what I really wanted for Christmas!! I found out on December 27 that I'm pregnant! We are so excited and surprised, as we had been trying for 15 months! Happy New Year!
~ Lori
p.s. I didn't get my Sugarboo frame yet, though! But that's okay. :)
