Well, I thoroughly enjoyed our family holiday and everyone seems to be quite pleased with their gifts. I was pleasantly surprised by having half my gifts this year from Anthropologie. Which is strange, because I didn't even know about this store until a few months ago. Lynn of The Paris Hotel Boutique did a fab blog post showing their magical winter wonderland store displays. That's how I found this shop.
I have decided not to join in on the shopping frenzy in the stores today and instead took a gander online at what else Anthropologie has to offer. And, boy was I surprised... Here are just a few items I could seriously be happy with if they landed in my stocking next year.
The Allamanda Necklace at $45 is the perfect
balance of being romantic, but with an edge.
The Malted Barley Boots at $379 are my favorite for an everyday boot for stomping around in jeans.
The Band of Baubles Bracelet by Nicole Miller at $58
has a little glam rock n' roll feel to it.
The In-The-Clouds Scarf in silk and cotton at $168
looks so dreamy, classy and comfy.
The Jeweled Branches Headband for $120
would make any gal look like a Queen even on a bad hair day.
The Rosy Cheeks Jacket on sale for $89.95
looks comfy without being frumpy.
The Prized Rose Ring that comes in cream and pink on sale for $89.95. I could see the cream on a special friend that loves feminine touches with nature themed treasures.
The Weathered Ferris Wheel on sale for $99.95 brings a smile to my face with it's whimsical and architectural aspects. I think my son and Mr. Fabulous, who is an engineer, would both love this piece. Now, that's hard to do. (Well, unless it's a Wii!)Anthropologie does have some of the best home wares around. So good, it will have to be a separate post, my friends.
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas with quality time with family and Santa was good to you. He sure was to my family.
I have two favorite moments:
1. My son, Christian, squealing with delight and jumping all over the dang place while playing his first Wii game. It is a HUGE hit.
2. When my Dad gave me a big hug last night before Christmas dinner and told me I really outdid myself. Moments like that make all the preparations worth it.
What was your favorite part of the holiday
