Sarah: Christmas Wish

What are you guys wishing Santa will bring to you on Christmas? Some lovely items I've been lusting after include:

Feather headbands seem to be getting increasingly popular. They're so unusual and dramatic, I think they'd make a great conversation piece or an unusual twist to a basic black tshirt and jeans.

Screenprints, Letterpress prints, photographs, and small scale (think postcard-sized) paintings are an affordable way to give someone a truly special gift and expand their art collection. Two paintings created by my dad, a photo by Mallory, and posters I've collected proudly adorn my walls. Prints of someone's favorite classic work are great, but I think an original work by an as-yet-unknown artist is intimate, creative, and an investment.

Rob Ryan makes some amazing paper cuts. He also has a book that would leave me inspired.

What about you? Are you eyeing some earrings? Do you have a long list of books to read in the new year? Are you yearning for leather driving gloves? A smoking jacket? Tell me in the comments below what you'd most like to receive for Christmas.

Oh, and this year, as with any holiday, I'd encourage everyone to Buy Handmade. Support independent artists and crafters and think outside the big box store.
I Took The Handmade Pledge!

You and I are on the same wavelength (some maybe even say N'sync ok lame joke)Anyways I have been totally looking at those feather headbands on etsy and wondering if I could pull it off and where I would wear it too.

Ok. I sort of blogged about the feather headbands, too (aka: linked to someone else's blog) and that is because I'm convinced ANYone can pull it off. And they are fabulous. I think you should wear it, Marci. And Sarah. I plan on getting one (or two) forthwith. Join me, comrades!

You know I can't support the wearing of actual bird feathers on my person, but I'm putting a letterpress calendar and a yummy smelling candle on my list!

I think it's only suitable that Marci, E, and I (and anyone else who is seduced by feather headbands) sit down for tea or something equally civilized.

Angie, do you have a particular calendar in mind? I bought one a few weeks ago and can hardly wait til it arrives. Hurrah for letterpress!

Oh, you have impeccable taste. I trust your judgment. :)
