Christmas Shopping Confession

Here is my seasonal confession.

Each year as I make my way through my Christmas shopping list , and I am out and about looking for things

for everyone I love, I see wonderful things….. for me…….
There I said it.

This ranks right up there with this tale.

It is as if everything I didn’t know I wanted but now must have but shouldn’t (???) is right in front of me.

Here are some things that have made my short list.
Narciso Rodriguez For Her L`Absolu Eau de Parfum 100ML
* Narciso Rodriquez Absolu perfume-
which reminds me of a spicy, modern version of Estee Lauder’s Youth Dew which reminds me of my mother (win-win).


*Bobbi Brown Desert Plum lipstick- the perfect reddish plummy color. Here is what I think about lipstick color for women of a certain age:  go for it- which is actually what I think about everything for women of a certain age.

Hammered Solid Copper 2-quart Tea Kettle with Ceramic Handle 

A Copper Tea Kettle-  I don’t drink hot tea, but I just know I would if I had this tea kettle.
Especially since my kitchen is currently full of this.

And lastly, while in Kingsville at the Saddle Shop recently, I really stood and stared at this.


OK.  Back to reality.

I am still on a quest to find New York Giant NFL football gloves USA style, youth size medium, for a grandson who knows exactly what he wants.

Merry Last Minute Christmas Shopping!

For many years, I had a copper tea kettle that looked just like the one in the photo. I kept silk greenery in it on top of my kitchen cabinets. Never actually used it as a kettle.

Oh!! You mean we are not supposed to make pure own 'I see and want list', and maybe get some of it while in store... Hahahaha.
I am swooning over that bag!!
Happy Christmas.

Ain't that the truth! But it does help when hubby asks for my list ;-) Merry Christmas!

I have to keep looking the other way too, I see so many things that I think I need. Good luck on your hunt.

Lisa said...

Don't you love Bobbi Brown makeup? She has the best color palettes. I have to say I think the copper kettle has your name written all over it. Santa said buy it! Copper with all your blue and white...oooh!

Marigene said...

You have wonderful taste, Laura...especially that gorgeous tote.
Merry Christmas!

Terra said...

Ha ha, that happens to me too. Love that tea kettle and lipstick shade.

I'm so happy to hear that I'm not the only one who does this! Merry Christmas Laura!

Susan Freeman said...

I had to laugh because I am always finding things for ME too ;-) I do like the favorites on your list. Love copper and anything from King Ranch (including King Ranch casserole lol) and Youth Dew was my Mom's fragrance and I keep a bottle around because it reminds me of her. We can always start a support group! Merry Christmas Laura!!

Big Texas Hugs,
Susan and Bentley

I might have been known to select my own Christmas presents too! Happy Christmas! xx

Laurie said...

HaHa! I do the same thing.

Patty Marker said...

Love your list. My tale is a bit worse than yours...I find for me and buy for me. There I said it! Merry Christmas my friend. I know it will be different but the grands still make it good. xo, Patty

Donnamae said...

You had a great "me" list...I'm just making a "me" list for next Christmas! Merry Christmas! ;)

Michelle said...

lol! I do this too! I teach 2nd grade and am finally out for the break. Doing a majority of shopping on Monday. Can't wait to see what I find for myself! Have a great Christmas!

I love a me list and think yours is perfect! Done that a few times myself - wishing you and your family a very Merry Christmas!

You tickled me. Me too! I have a Santa Please board. (I don't think he'll look at it.)It's full of dreams! Thanks for coming over and visiting. I'll follow you back!
Merry Christmas.
