November Eleven

Every year Nick's family organises christmas wish lists. How organised! It suppose it takes the guess work out of present buying/making. Because I can't afford much at the moment, I'll be making most of our gifts this year. Nick says there's nothing on his list, but I got to thinking about what would be on mine.

I love list making so here goes. These are my secret christmas gift wishes:

In the lunchroom today, I flipped open a magazine to find an article on Alexa Johnson. I was tempeted to rip it out and take it home (along with some other delicious looking reciepe) because I LOVE her cookbooks. Zac gave me her first one and got it signed! I was smitten with her from then on. She may have also kickstarted my collection of community cookbooks.

Colette Sewing Handbook
Who doesn't LOVE Colette patterns. This book has been on my to-do list for a while now. It's such a bargin for 5 patterns, all of Sarai's great tips and easy to follow techniques. 

What is Buffalo leather anyway? I kinda thought it was a name for fake leather. But it's not. Poor Buffalo. 
It's weird how cheap these diaries are, yet they appear well made of real buffalo leather. 

I need some new underwear. Why not something AWESOME made my The Loved One for Christmas?
Special mention goes to the Rago corselet! It doesn't come in my size, but I can dream right?!
