Have you started to put together a list for all your holiday shopping yet? We tend to go pretty low key at our house. Just a few gifts are for the kids and the closest family and friends. I am browsing for perfect gift ideas and will share as I go along. Today I am showing you what I would like for myself! Selfish, perhaps. But trust me, I have everything I want and don’t need or wish for more stuff. If anything I want less. But for the first time if my husband asks what I want (and he will!) — I can actually give him an answer!
For a long time I have been talking about getting serious about starting my collection of white pottery. I have a few nice pieces spread over the house but I would like to add to it. And I would also like to have the objects on display in one area. So, this is what I am wishing for:
To kick-start my white pottery collection for real and to, eventually, have it displayed like this.
Oh My! This is so me! (I almost fainted when I first discovered it over at the lovely Marcus Design). The old cabinet with the edgy, unexpected purple backdrop. And a collection of white, sentimental treasures. (A collection should be personal and filled with memories. Each and every piece should have a story to tell).
I have always loved Jonathan Adler’s Dora Maar vase. (It comes in several sizes). And some of you might recall that I used his Dora Maar candle as a giveaway last December. I can’t believe that the very same vase is staring at me from the cabinet. It is a sign! The perfect piece of white pottery to kick-start the collection and also of sentimental value from my wonderful blog days. (Thanks to you all!)
There you have it. I focused on myself for 15 minutes. I am so done with me and now can focus all my energy and attention on everyone else. And that is when the real fun begins!
Happy new week friends!
