My Christmas Gift Ideas list is stumping me…what do you give the loved one in your life who has everything and says often she doesn’t need anything?  Thankfully I searched Restoration Hardware‘s lovely site and found unique and reasonably priced gift giving ideas.  First off, I love these Faux Fur Throws, this one in Linx featured above, for $79.00

Who doesn’t need to keep their feet warm? Luxury Plush Foot Duvets – only $19.00 !

The Spa Robe, simply chic…$99.00

Winter Home Candle collection. Beautifully packaged for gift giving, for hostess gifts or for housewarming. $23.99 – $40.99

Mini Cashmere hand warmers – $10.00 and Hot Water bottles – $39.99 to keep those mitts warm during neighborhood caroling or other outdoor adventures.

Enjoy, and Happy Christmas Gift Giving!


Pre-Halloween – Thinking in my Skull

or something to that effect….Halloween is my favorite time of year….

Much as I love a great spooky scare, I may never go this far…but it’s nice to see.

For the gothic people…Skull bookends and skull sheets…Love it! photos via Apartment Therepy

Lights of Distinction

My love of unique lighting cannot be quenched, and Crystorama Lighting Group features an extraordinary collection of light fixtures and chandeliers that catch my breath. I found myself spending time with the Paris Flea Market Collection, bringing to mind a stroll through the city of lights and all its antique glory. Some of Crystorama’s collection can be pricey, but the sales are terrific, like this Paris Flea 2 light Wall Sconce in Fleurette, on sale: $75.00!

Paris Flea 2 light Pendant Chandelier in Antique Brass. $187.00

Paris Flea Market 6 light Chandelier in Champagne, $630.00

Glassware exploration

With a final chip this past weekend, actually a crack down the entire glass, my last set of six is now a five, to go with my sets of four that are down to three, which leads me today to explore glassware options. It’s time for a new every day set, and a new guest set. Although I enjoy the possibilities of serving drinks in a variety of stemware or glassware, the symmetry of the set table can be frightening if the glasses don’t match…at least in style if not size. My endeavor led me to my favorite company for glassware, Libbey. Most of their collections are made in the USA or Mexico, which is great. And very reasonably priced. Above is the Argyle Glassware set – 12 piece at $19.99. Here are a few other choices I like:

The Classic Mocha Rocks set which remind me of my mother’s back in the 70s. Love the retro look and feel of these. On the order list. 4 piece – $11.99

The perfect Goblet Party Set. 12 glasses in the set, symmetry for the table is satisfied! $27.99
