We said we’d fill you in on all the fabulous booty that we scored, so here ya go…
From my newly engaged best-buddy-in-the-whole-wide-world (who’s marrying John’s cousin by the way!) we got this fantastic personalized planter. It’s perfect considering John and I were married in July of 07, and it’ll be something we’ll adore forever and a day. Now all we need is a plant with at least nine lives.
We also got a gift card to West Elm which we promptly spent about 20 hours after we unwrapped it. These shiny gold boxes were the first things that caught our eye (perfect for storing all the stuff we’d rather not see).
Storage must have been a theme, because we also fell in love with this pretty partridge piggy bank that looks more like art than a nickel & dime receptacle. It’s also a huuuuge upgrade considering we used to keep our lose change in a plastic purple cup.
We also got a plethora of other amazing stuff, including a cute set of William’s Sonoma mugs accompanied by some tasty mulling spices, a gorgeous black & white hardcover book of NYC photography, and a thoughtful donation to Richmond’s Habitat For Humanity in our name. How cool is that?
Now it’s your turn. Tell us all about your favorite holiday scores (and your least favorite- those are always fun too). Only 358 days til next Christmas!
