Santa Baby, Are You Still There?

Posted on 20 December 2009

Dear Santa,
This is my follow up letter to my earlier wish list.  Again, I thought I would help you out with a few high/low gifting ideas to make your last minute shopping super easy.
I know you are thinking I already have one, but I'm like the cobbler whose children have no shoes...well, I'll go ahead and admit it.... I don't have a sewing kit.
I can hear your gasp from here....
I know, I know, even though Anne is really nice about doing my repairs, I feel bad about constantly imposing on her.  So, here are a couple of darling options for home repairs:

Gift Idea #5: Smythson Luxury Leather Sewing Box, $1,120.

Smythson Luxury Leather Sewing Box 1

yeah, I know, I'm in stitches too and anyway, lavender really isn't my color.


Gift Idea #6: Vintage Sewing Box from Patented Antiques, $48

I really am fond of this little basket and it already has some work experience!


Gift Idea #7: Dennis Hopper: Photographs, 1961-1967, limited edition signed & numbered, $700

1 Dennis Hopper: Photographs 1961-1967 1

I know what you are thinking....Dennis is high again! So how 'bout...

Gift Idea #8: Who Shot Rock & Roll: A Photographic History, 1955 - Present, by Gail Buckland, $26.

Books are not made for furniture, but there is nothing else that so beautifully furnishes a house.  ~Henry Ward Beecher


But, actually Santa, I don't need a thing. God has blessed me with more than I deserve.   Two healthy and happy boys, a loving and supportive family, great friends,  a career that allows me to simultaneously work from home while wearing my PJs, watch the cows ruminating their breakfast, and attend a trend seminar in New York.  But if you must gift me with one gift how about this:


Gift Idea #9: Support for Rosalba Yanira and World Vision.

1 1

Rosalba is my World Vision child.  She is 6 years old and lives with her parents and siblings in El Salvador. Her father is an agricultural worker, but despite his hard work it is difficult for him to meet his family's needs.  For just $35 / month, you and World Vision can help provide clean water, nutritious food, health care and education of Rosalba or some other needy child.

That is what I want for Christmas.  Let's all love the world, play nice and be free.

    Thanks Ms M, I know Craig but am unaware of his work. He is a Facebook friend and he is always flying somewhere and doing something. Tell me more about Thirst No More.

    World Vision is a great organization. Another good one is Craig Miller’s Thirst No More—-sponsor a child that lost parents during the floods. Cheryl you inspire me with your unselfish motives and giving. Blessings. Dianna
