My Christmas Wish List. :-)

 This is the time of the year when you are allowed and expected to dream  about anything at all. :-) Every little wish, every little miracle is possible. This Christmas I am dreaming of many things: I am dreaming of seeing my Mom this year, recovering from being unwell for a long time now, working on my new Collection, dreaming  of going to Paris and Russia and even Milan! Can not wait to see what 2011 has in store for me and while waiting to find out I decided to post my Christmas Wish List in hopes that Santa is reading this Blog too :-)
 Every year I get one exquisite ornament for my tree. This year I thought Bergdorf Goodman did such a great job on creating this beauty of an ornament. :-)
 By my very own admission - I am not a very good cook at all. This year I decided that I will work on improving my cooking skills with the help of this fabulous book. :-) There is always room for improvement!
 Macaroons!!! Wouldn't it be a true Christmas Miracle considering that there is no Laduree in the US?
 This gorgeous Christmas wreath caught my eye with all the fine detailing. It is almost like looking at the Fairy Tale.There is so much going on, I really wish this wreath could live in my house!
 This darling golden pear salt & pepper shaker were created by the wonderful artist Michael Aram. It is still available at Barney's New York along with so many other beautiful designs by Michael! I am absolutely in love with it!:-)
 This dress was absolutely created for me. The minute I saw it I knew that this is MY dress! This velvet Antonio Berardi must live in my closet. :-)
 I though this little ornament couple is simply adorable. Look at all the details and, more importantly hats!:-)
Finally, this exquisite bottle of perfume has been on my list wish for a long time. The aroma is magical! I am very conservative when it comes to perfumes. I am using only two scents: "Chanel #5" and vintage "Femme" by Rochas on the colder days. :-) Hoping that "Oriens" will make a great addition. :-)
Would  really like to know what is on your Christmas Wish list this year? :-)

I wish you a wonderful X-mas and a great time with everybody you love. Hope Santa will read your blog!

The Gossamer Tearoom said...

Dear Anya,
What super nice things you are hoping for from Mr. Santa!! The dress is really gorgeous and of course, who could say "No" to the macarons!! I do hope your mother continues to get better. And I really hope you get to go on all of your trips this year!

As for me, we have a rather bucolic existence here right now and couldn't ask for much else. We will be treating ourselves with our my traditional Christmas Eve party, just for us and whatever other treats we will have on the day too!

Wishing you a super nice Christmas, Dear Friend!

Hugs to you,


Angie Muresan said...

You have a lovely wish list, Anya, and I wish you the best in getting everything off of it. That red dress is gorgeous, by the way. I can just picture it with one of your hats!
Happy weekend to you, and hoping you are feeling better.

SabinePsynopsis said...

I'm sure Santa is reading your blog - if just to get inspiration for the most elegant and adorable Christmas presents. Hope all your wishes come true, Anya! xxx

Kat said...

the salt and pepper shakers are great! i don't have much on my list this year, only a few chic things ;)

der weihnachtsmann (santa in germany) will hopefully bring you something from your list!

Kat said...

oh, and the inspiration for my drawing came from an old lily cole editorial... :)

Haute World said...

Such a fabulous Xmas wishlist my dear! I hope Santa makes it happen ;-) I love the ornament figurines and that dress is beyond beautiful. Hope you had a wonderful weekend!


I wish a cook book!! :)

ciao ciao from Rome

Rachel {Inspiration in Italy} said...

Dearest Anya,

Your outlook on life is contagious, and you have convinced me to have bold dreams for the new year! I too dream of even more travels, seeing my family again soon, and if I could travel to Laduree and bring you 10,000 rose macarons, I would!! :) That velvet dress is gorgeous, you have incredible taste! I am also itching to try this Oriens scent, the bottle is so pretty!

You have filled my thoughts with beautiful daydreams, and this Christmas I am filled with hopeful wishes for the next year. I am wishing that our sacrifice and hard work will pay off, and someday to repay all those who have helped us toward achieving our dreams, even simple words of encouragement like you have given me. Another dream is to visit your shop. . . and to purchase my first hat from you! Someday! :)

Have a beautiful week my friend, and hoping you receive everything you are dreaming of this Christmas!

Rachel {Inspiration in Italy} said...

PS. I recognize that Flair magazine cover you have added to the side! I remember finding it at a local newsstand here in Rome and seeing the gorgeous editorial with your beautiful hat! :) xoxo

Sandy at Ooh La Frou Frou said...

I LOVE your wish list! I love that Bergdorf ornament too and the dress by Antonio Berardi is delicious!!! Now I am so curious to see what this perfume smells like!!! I hope this holiday, Santa brings you all you wish for plus sprinkles good luck and magic on your new year!! Kisses! Sandy
