Wow, I slept until 10:00 this morning! And I’m seriously late on my first blogpost of the week – this vacation thing is really getting to me. I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas with your family and friends, and that your living room is in as much chaos as mine is right now!
If you’re wondering what I got for Christmas – or what any interior decorator gets for Christmas – you might be surprised. No, I didn’t get a fabulous piece of art or rug or piece of furniture. Because Mr. Man knows what I REALLY want, he got me some tools of the trade:
I got a box of measuring tapes (which I take with me everywhere I go) – but the cool thing about that is that Mr. Man made branded labels for them! I LOVE THESE!!!!
I also got a couple of new decorating books I have been wanting: The Perfectly Imperfect Home and Jonathan Adler’s Happy Chic Colors. You can find both of these in The Decorologist’s Amazon store. I can’t wait to pour through those over the next few days of leisure.
I also got a bunch of picture-hanging nails and hanging paraphenalia from my daughters. And I got an excellent new tripod for my camera – and essential for improving the quality of my photographs. Since my husband is a technical instrument snob, he is the best at choosing just the right gear for me – the kind I would never spend the money on myself, which meant the previous tripod I owned was a piece of junk!
I want to know – what was your favorite present this year?
