Adventures with Santa Claus
Even without snow, it's still a lovely Christmas morning 2006. I'll post a list of what I received for Christmas, and I hope to see other bloggers doing the same! This Christmas was special because no one went beyond their means. I didn't get a couchful of present, but didn't want one either. I received exactly what I wanted, and though it wasn't a whole lot, it was good enough for me. That's my new L.L. Bean fair-isle sweater to the left. I've been quietly desiring a fair isle sweater for a long time, because they seem like the perfect item you can hunker down or dress up. There is the chance of looking like a matronly festive mistake while wearing fair isle, but I'm young and creative enough to pull something of that is generationally appropriate. It's a bit too big now, but can be easily altered. Here we go.
-L.L. Bean red Fair Isle sweater
-L.L. Bean red & white striped slipper/socks
-Glen plaid trousers (custom-made)
-Gray pinstripe trousers (custom-made)
-$100 Chapters gift card
-Oprah 20 seasons DVD
-2 prs. socks
-Red fleece gloves
-Chunky red yarn + 6 mm knitting needles
I'm planning on putting the $100 towards a classy winter coat. Can anyone give me ideas on where to find one?
P.S.: Tell me about your Christmas 'receive' list!
