I hate to say this, but I am so freakin’ happy that Christmas is over. I love to eat, but Christ on a cracker! ---This year the eating aspects of the Holiday were taken to an extreme. Of course no one force fed me, so I have no one to blame but myself. On the other hand, as far as gifts go, this year we streamlined. After last year’s gift extravaganza that resembled a wrapping paper and ribbon orgy, we decided to scale-back this year.
So, besides the 6 or 7 lbs I gained over the last week, I also got these 2 things for Christmas:
FrenchBoy snuck out and bought me a bottle of Hermèssence Rose Ikebana by Hermès. Whenever we go to a Hermès store to window lick, we beg the sales ladies to “spray us up” with the fancy perfumes. And sometimes they give you samples. (Note to anyone who likes free stuff: Go to Hermès and ask for samples. I think they are required by Hermès law to give them to you. Also, the samples are huge. By measurement, they are worth about 12 euros each and come in a mini version of the trademark orange box! So there ya go. Don’t say I never gave you nothin’.)
Gift#2 I bought for myself.
I found this little gem by Blue Finger Studios over at Etsy.
It’s a teeny tiny pendant made from a reclaimed Scrabble tile. It is so cute and little and perfect and it came with its own little silk necklace. I like it so much I may buy a few more as gifts in the coming year.
Anyway, that’s what I got.
What did y’all get (or give) for Christmas?
