Some things I’ve been eyeing

Today was one of those days where the moment I opened the internet, I knew it was going to be a bad day for mindless clicking and cyber window shopping. Like within minutes I had 24 windows open. Eek. Christmas is coming people and since it’s baby’s first, we must make it extra special, mustn’t we?

Like, need to get my amaryllis bulbs forced. Normally I do narcissus but this year I decided to go big and red.

(this special variety available at Terrain)

Also at Terrain, a really sweet chalkboard jam jar!?! For storing homemade jam in the fridge and labeling it appropriately. LOVE.

POSH Chicago has their vintage and vintage-inspired holiday decor up and ready for purchasing. Like these red cordial glasses (EXCELLENT GIFT IDEA!) and coil icicle ornaments.

Perhaps I need a festive triangley locket?

(Spotted on Celia’s blog.)

And maybe Dashiell needs some new, high fashion apparel? From Stella M, maybe? It is awfully cold in our house in the winter.

Or perhaps a notebook paper tee? One for baby, one for mama.

And those boots I’ve been doing without for like 3 winters? I’m not sure I can make it through another season without them. And because every pair I’ve seen and liked is $500, these Madewells are looking right perfect at the moment.

(Spotted on Suann’s blog.)

AND I have to make/find the perfect stocking for Dashiell! This is a big deal, people. My whole family has handmade stockings that were given to us for our first Christmas. The pressure! Time to visit Purl for some inspiration.

There. Now I can go on about my day.

    I second Jennifer’s comment!

    And the stocking is a HUGE deal…this will be the crumb’s 3rd Christmas, and I still haven’t settled upon the perfect one. Slacker is my middle name.

    LOVE those madewell boots. And when I spotted that locket on Celia’s blog I promptly bought it on Etsy. I had to.

    It was unkind of you to post that jam pot.

    Usually I do not post on blogs, but I would like to say that this article truly forced me to do so! Thanks, truly nice article.
