Christmas at Halloween

You know how it's kind of annoying that stores decorate two holidays ahead? They're ready to sell ornaments before it's even Halloween...
Well, this year I've decided to tame my typical annoyance and be grateful that it's getting me to think ahead. :) And here's what I did today when I had some time to relax after cleaning the bathroom and bedroom!

My Christmas Wishlist
My style is to give specifics so that it's easier for the giver. I also list a good number of things so that there are at least a few things to choose from.
  • The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Prisoner's Dilemma (#3), by Trenton Lee Stewart (paperback, please)
  • New Journal (with nice pens, preferrably black Pilot)
  • Chocolate (I love Hershey's with no nuts; Kisses; Snickers; Milky Way; 3 Musketeers, etc.)
  • Perhaps a clothing budget ($30 is actually plenty sufficient. Even $20 is. Heck, $10 is nice). OR fabric budget (no clue $$)
  • Germaine Tailleferre's Harp Concertino sheet music, Piano Reduction
    OR Nicolas Flagello Harp Sonata sheet music (for any other sheet music, ask Michael)
  • Tempera paints (so far, my favorite to play with--I've never owned any; I'd like to expand my art skills)
  • Wristwatch: either simple, pretty and water-resistant analog (silver or silver & gold) OR plain waterproof sports watch with timer and stopwatch, digital. A dainty, pretty watch with all the sports watch features would be ideal, but those things are usually so stinking expensive!!!
  • Audrey Hepburn movie (not How To Steal a Million, we own that) or pretty much any movie from that classic period
  • Cute socks! Ankle or knee-high
  • Pretty scarves (decorative/accessory, not winter--although I wouldn't object to those)

I promise I'm not too picky. If you're concerned, you could talk to Michael. ;) In any case, I'm not posting this to guilt you all into getting me presents already! It was just a fun thing for me to do today. Besides, I like Christmas a whole lot more than Halloween.


  1. I'm feeling way more Christmasy (as opposed to Halloweenish) too! Glad to have a list!

  2. I've made my list too! LOL....oh, and I too LOVE a new journal and the perfect black pen (I also prefer Pilot). Merry Christmas!

  3. oh qait, you're so cute! i wish i could get you everything on that list and more.

  4. From one pen freak to another: Zebra pens are the best. A little pricey (the best ones are $4-ish) but so worth it. I'm in love with mine. Maybe I'll send you one for Christmas. ;)


Thanks! My blog is blah-g without your feedback!
