holiday wrap up

Gah, it's been a whirlwind of a week; I still can't believe it's Monday and I'm back at work.Here are few quick highlights of my week:
Tuesday I waited patiently for the last of my online gift purchases to arrive in the mail:
an engraved ipod for my bf-(he loved the subtle beatles touch)
a limited ed. Steve Harrington screenprint also for my bf
some lovely handmade soap sets by svsoaps for my ladies
and Tuesday night we went to see the nutcracker.
Wednesday consisted of some last minute shopping for stocking stuffers:
Santa knows that ppl like mini booze bottles more than crappy junk from cvs.
It so happens that Anthropologie was next to the booze store so I stopped in and scored some gorgeous ornaments for 75% off!
Thursday was an oh so lovely Christmas filled with family and great presents. Here a few lovelies:
3 bronze pinecones by Ria Charisse; one of my favorite artists!
Some more mini modern chairs by reac japan
I also scored some beautifully tailored clothes from BASE, and a few other timeless coats and accessories that I will cherish for years to come. I am a huge fan of gift giving so I truly feel more rewarded in seeing peoples reactions and appreciation rather than receiving. I was most anxious to see how my parents would react to their gift this year. And amazingly they loved him and were beaming about how special this piece is and where they could hang it. Such a relief!
The remainder of the weekend consisted of mimosas in the am, bikes ride with my dog, sharing macaroons and late night shenanigans with my friend Tiffany, and braving the malls to return some things. We also managed to squeeze in the abridge Shakespeare play and dine and drink at my favorite piano bar Magnum Lounge.
