This has been an interesting year. I feel like I accomplished a lot of things around the house and in the yard. In some areas I have been pickier than in others. Some places just need a few finishing touches and others need the main event. Since I have been trying to go with "less" purposefully in the wardrobe department, I have been able to put more resources towards things around the home. There are a few things that I would love for function and fun that I haven't gotten around to and may not... since most of this would really only be used by me!
1 : for the walls You probably remember the print I framed for Kyle's birthday from Leslie Hill's Fifty Two Verses project. I have thought for a while that I would love to have maybe 3 of them along the long wall of our hallway as daily encouragement. I just kept waiting for the project to be a little more finished so that I could decide which I really want. I have so far narrowed it down to prints 3, 4, 12, 24, 26, 38, and 40. I think any of them would look great in "mini" with a simple white frame.
2 : for the neck I have absolutely loved my necklace from The Jones Market. Support small business when you can. I would love another necklace (or 2!) from her. She is selling out quickly and has a big sale coming up, so act fast because she is going to close up shop Nov 30th to spend time with family! From what I saw available this weekend, I love her metallic adjustable necklaces right now, or really any of the vanilla or blueberry beads!
3 : for the cabinet I have unfortunately broken 2 of my 4 sort of larger wine glasses in the past year. No worries, I was sort of wanting some new ones anyway. I like this longer shape. I'm not set on any certain kind, though I do know that the Riedel Vivant red wine glasses at Target are about the right size.
4 : for the snuggles Have you seen the commercials? TOMS is at Target. What I didn't realize until I checked the website, was that it is much more than the shoes. I have now seen this blanket in the store and think it would be a wonderful snuggle blanket for the couch. Kyle can tell you that I NEVER sit on the couch without being covered up. Its just comfy.
5 : for the outfit check I always intended to have a long mirror whenever we moved. I have never been able to see all of an outfit at once before I leave the house. I do have one free wall to hang one on in the bedroom and I think I really ought to not keep putting it off.
What is on your wishlist this year? I love to hear what other people are dreaming of this time of year. Don't worry family, I plan to get a little man version completed before Black Friday ;-)
