Wish List: White Christmas

Remember all the Michigan snow I was bragging about in my previous post? Well it's gone. All of it. Two days of rain and yesterday's balmy 55 degree morning have left us with flooded gutters and dirty, dwindling lumps of plowed snow in the Walmart parking lot.

With Christmas only eight days away, it's a bit of a buzz kill to look out the window and see muddled gray and brown. For now, I'm dreaming of a white Christmas and using this roundup of festive items to get my fix.

1. This origami reindeer ornament should probably be on my tree. Right now.  2. Aerie's lace paneled top would be pretty layered with a festive red cardigan and braided belt.  3. There is something so simple and beautiful about this porcelain conifer kiln ornament.  4. Spiced Chai candle. Need I say more?  5. This hand-woven Chloe throw would be perfect to curl up under with a cup of peppermint hot chocolate and a good book in hand.  6. I've been admiring West Elm's modern snow globe collection for a while -- and now they're on sale!  7. Anthro's Mirrored Mirth Trees are the perfect balance of modern and vintage. They would look beautiful clustered together, with candlelight flickering off their metallic glaze.  8.  Sip the aforementioned peppermint hot chocolate from this rustic wood grain mug. So cozy. 

With snow in the forecast for the next two days, I'm really hoping we'll get enough to last us through Christmas. Call me sentimental, but there's something so magical and peaceful about fresh snowfall around Christmastime. Agreed?
