Cowboy Boots + Leg Warmers

I’m in love with this picture above, specifically the bright colored leg warmers.  I’m also in love with cowboy boots.  I’m thinking I need to pair up some shorty cowboy boots with some leg warmers or cuffs via etsy and some jeggings.  What say you?

I am determined to complete, by the end of this month, stockings for everyone in the family so that when Christmas decorations come out, everyone in the family has a stocking.  I’m not a master on the sewing machine but I can do some basics.  So my plan is to do the stocking itself out of felt.  I am going to do names out of material and iron them on via this tutorial on Sir Bubbadoo.   And then I saw in my Sundance catalog, this stocking that has a pocket for your letter to Santa! So I think it’s all coming together in my mind.  I’ll post an update of the completed stockings if they don’t look like total ass.

In other news, did you know that you can get a personalized letter back from Santa after you send yours off? Thanks to Danielle, now I do!

Christmas Wishlist: AK Edition

I had sort of a hard time thinking about what I would want for Christmas this year….insane right? Last year I went to town on a dream list and this year I could barely come up with a  realistic list!! What’s wrong with me!!  So here’s my short list of goodies I’d love, I’ve left off boring things like new towels, a new duvet cover and a new set of drinking glasses…I didn’t want you to fall asleep while browsing!

  1. Ultrasonic Jewelry Cleaner, Brookstone-My mom has one similar to this and it gets the job done.  Kind of a set it and forget it kind of jewelry cleaner.
  2. Present Day Pearl Hoops, Sundance-These are fantastic and would be a great go with everything type of earring.
  3. Jackie Cardigan, J.Crew-I love this cardigan and have it in a few colors thanks to the outlet near my house.  I could sure use it in cerise, navy or dried parsley.
  4. Travel Envelope, Abas Accessories-I end up having a ton of paper stuff free flowing in my purse and I’d love a leather envelope to keep it in.  This would fit the bill!
  5. Michele Silicon Watch Strap, Nordstrom-I have a Michele watch and would LOVE a silicon band…any color would do but this green sure is fun!
  6. Iced Blueberry Ring, Lolo’s Rings-I have a ring from this story and have been eyeing this one ever since.
  7. PixelSkin for iPhone, Speck-I need a new case and I’m loving this green one.
