Happy Horchow Holidays

I am trying to cut back on spending and be more financially responsible (someone has to, right?) so I shall create a fantasy shopping cart, share these fun Christmas finds through my virtual home here and admire them from afar.

Maybe you'll be persuaded to be less financially responsible than me and pick something up for yourself - perhaps the personalized wrapping paper (5 sheets for the bargain price of $90 - seriously????).


  1. I can't even imagine spending that much for wrapping paper...

    in 5 years.

    Hello, Dollar Tree.

  2. Seriously...who would spend that much money on wrapping paper??

  3. thats just unreasonable for some darn wrapping paper, you can get a personalized stamp and make your own my goodness! i love that little reindeer with the candy cane candles!

  4. I got my Harchow catalog in the mail the other day and just pitched it without even glancing at it. But I did look through the FAO Schwartz catalog and saw a $10,000 "toy" there you have it.

  5. i had to give up on my gorgeous horchow stockings for $65. i love the fantasy shopping cart.

  6. I swear I saw that wrapping paper someplace else for a lot less than that. I'll try to remember where.

  7. Fun post! I love the idea of a virtual shopping cart.

Baby Shower Inspiration Board: Sweet Little Things

It's been a while since I posted an inspiration board, so when I saw that Angie Harmon's friends threw her a candy-inspired baby shower this weekend, I thought it would be fun to come up with some ideas of what it may have looked like! Yummy!

New Years Resolutions Attention Deficit Disorder

My mind is already a confusing mess of what I want to accomplish in 2013. And it seems like every other hour, I think of something new or read someone's idea and say "Hey, I'm gonna do that in 2013."

Overachiever, not so much. But I do get excited this time of the year to start anew, symbolic as it is, and have an excuse to step back for a minute, press the hold button and think about what I want for the next 12 months.

My 2012 goals were to get a promotion (check) while maintaining good work/life balance (check), and lose thirty lbs (not checked). My blog took a bit more of a back seat in 2012 as other items came to the front and I worked on that balance, but hopefully 2013 will provide the opportunity to spend more time here growing my online friendships and sharing my stories/projects/news...

For 2013 I jump from wanting to save, save, save so I can either completely redo my house in 2014 or move to a new house ... to wanting to travel to NYC again in the Spring …

December 30th

It's the quiet days that sometimes get to me. I just got off the phone with my mom. I told her I have cabin fever. She said, "You probably won't be someone who should retire."

I replied, "I don't ever plan to".

This year Christmas was a bit slower, a bit quieter than usual. Maybe because everyone is getting a bit older, there are no babies around to cry or wail, and my grandparents seemed so feeble. With my uncle's passing this year, Mike having to work the day after Christmas and my dad not around - such a significant absence of the male figures that had always been there over the holidays.

My mother had bronchitis, and my nephew the flu. Walker and I both ended up with awful colds that we're still trying to get over.

My parents were kind to one another, amicable and friendly.

The presents were plentiful and Santa exceeded expectations.

The three sons/cousins/grandsons were happy and hyper.

So much buildup, and it always goes by too fast. I'…
