For this ‘Christmas Edition’ I decided to dream big and throw out a few items far beyond my budget – Christmas is for wishing isn’t it! No surprise that the sofa above is green (my favorite color); I also love the wooden base.
Such a beautifully simple desk!
Designed by Eva Zeisel and recently released by Design Within Reach – love the little pitchers!
More items made of dark rich wood need to happen in my life!
A few design classics are always necessary – Saarinen and Eames, yes please!
Rounding out my danish modern/mid-century love affair – an amazing dresser!

This year I spent a bit more time, thought, and effort on gift wrapping. Usually my gift wrapping creativity involves just wrapping everything with the same snowflake paper and tying them with white ribbons. I was definitely inspired by these gift wrapping inspirations found over at Style Me Pretty – I am so in love with all these ideas! I also used the tutorial here to make these little paper boxes for some small gifts I had. I will be sharing some images of my own wrapping in a post to come, along with some other sights from the holidays, but for now – I can’t wait for my family to open their specially wrapped gifts!

Seeing as it is Christmas week (!) I thought I might do a bit of browsing for holiday table decorations. I know my family has a full meal plan this week with lots of yummy food – this year we’re sticking a lot of traditional foods (monkey bread, shrimp, and jello molded trees) it’s going to be a treat!

A few things I have spotted recently that I haven’t had time to share:
Amazing porcelain doilies by Kristen Wicklund - she dips the doilies in the porcelain and then they burn out during the firing process!
How great would it be to have an old Polaroid SX-70 camera! Watch a wonderfully informative film about these cameras created by Charles and Ray Eames here.
A poster interpreting “Walden” by Henry David Thoreau – love the trees! Purchase here.

I just finished up my first semester working in an architecture model shop. I definitely still don’t have a handle on what exactly the students were always working on (or AutoCAD for that matter) – but I at least have more familiarity with the field and can say it was fun watching everyone try to make their big ideas fit into such a small model!
