when i was in college, my friend gretchen and i would be stuck doing phone duty at the kappa house (roll your eyes here) and so, we'd spend the requisite hours flipping through catalogs, playing the "gifting game". if you couldn't find one thing on each page for yourself, you had to 'gift' it to someone you knew. well, today, my blogger friend leah hennen (more ways to waste time) posted a very funny, spot-on virtual gift giving. i couldn't resist so in the spirit of the 'gifiting game', merry christmas my friends:
to one of the most generous and supportive friends, who also happens to be, one of the funniest people i know. karen of bonjourbrookline. she shares my passion for jutta (yoo-ta) bags. this bag, to hold her notebook and pen so that she can make witty notes on her observations around the world and back home in brookline, mass. the 'adana bag', by jutta neuman (noyman)
for miss habitually chic. please fill this book out and make copies for all of us immediately. found where ever the stylishly, well connected shop.
the 'other' black book, pre-written for the rest of us. for mrs. blandings. i just know she'd share my love for this vintage read.stylecourt. because her love of suzani, can't just stop at her home. she needs to dress herself in its love. the persian moon dress from anthro for my 'god mother' of blogging. she who has mentored and inspired me to blog...sfgirlbybay. a free day of shopping with the voracity of a supermarket showdown--at our, shared, favorite shop in s.f. 'nest' decorno. because, like the sub title states, she's fearlessly inappropriate and fabulously eccentric
for my late night, im-ing friend, cote de texas....because, dammit i love that she gets so much traffic and commenting over her 'love' of decorating with dead animals.my old friend robyn (gardenrooms) probably already has a pair of these. but i can totally see her tromping around those big old gardens of pacific heights, in the fog, wearing these.inside the loop, one of everything from san francisco's bell'occhio. because it's just so her. for everyone else, (and i'm sure i'll keep adding as i 'shop' over the next few days) a little art from my old illustrating days. happy holidays, happy new year and thank you for being such a fun, creative, designery, hip, smart, bitingly witty group.
oh, and if you don't like your gift, feel free to re-gift it to another blogger!
