A Few of My Favorite Things

Christmas is coming and I decided I would like to share a few of my favorite things.  Some of these items I have but some I am placing on my wish list.  Maybe this list will give you some ideas to give (or put on your wish list).

A Few of My Favorite Things

A Few of My Favorite Things

I was lucky enough to win a Royal Design Studio Stencil, it was hard just to pick one stencil and I am hoping to be able to get a few more.  I picked a cool African Flower Wall Stencil and my plans are to stencil this flower on my cupboards if and when I every get them painted... Maybe next year will be the year.

Now chocolate has to be on everyone's list and it is a Girl's Best Friend.. perfect when you are happy or sad.  My first taste of Ghirardelli Chocolate was many, many years when I visited San Francisco and having an ice cream and chocolate... YUM! Some day I will go back and visit this store again but for now I will enjoy all the Ghiradelli chocolate I can find in the store and make wonderful baking with it.

One of my favorite pans that I love to cook with is my Lodge Cast Iron skillet.  I love that I can go from the stove to the oven.  Yes, I did win a skillet a few years ago and I bought a second one.  On my Christmas list (hubby are your reading?) is a dutch oven...

I grew up with Corelle dishes and thought that I would never have a set in my house.. Nope, why would I do that.  So when I went to buy some new everyday dishes I was surprised that my eyes went to the Corelle.  I love the new patterns and looking for a set that will compliment the dishes that I do have.

Do you like the gift that keeps on giving?  How about giving gift that comes once a month and also helps others.  GlobeIN supports that artists that make the items.  You can get monthly, 3 months or 6 months subscriptions.  You can cancel at any time with no questions ask.  I love receiving my GlobeIn box and reading about the artist of each item in the box. To read more about this company check out my review.

New customers can use coupon code BEDROOM to save 25% off their first month's box with a purchase of a 3+ month Artisan Box subscription. (affiliate link).

If you follow my blog you know that I love my coffee and I love making specialty coffees.  I do have a keurig that I bought for my hubby so that he can make coffee in the morning.  I am lucky enough to have it now.  Ours is just a simple keurig and I would love to get the Rivo System so that I can make espressos and lattes.

Although I love my coffee, I love tea too... just as equally (so no one feels left out).   I love all types of teas and to make a perfect cup of tea, you need a perfect teapot too.  Teavana has some neat tea sets that I would love to have.

I would love a bottle or two of Torani Syrup in my stocking.  They even come sugar-free and are perfect to pour into your coffee, tea or hot chocolate.

I love to crafts and would be ecstatic if I received any type of craft materials from Michaels Store .  Mason Jars and Chalk Paint are one of my favorite items to use for many of my holiday decorating.  I am sure any crafter would like to have  crafts under their tree.  Once again this is a gift that can keep giving.

What is on your Christmas List?

  1. A great list! I love my cast iron skillet as well. And, those Torani syrups are great for a stocking stuffer! Thanks for sharing your list! I love it!

  2. Hi Marlys,
    I love your list and I also LOVE Ghirardelli Chocolate, I'm still using a set of Corelle that I purchased over 15 years ago, and...probably my favorite skillets to cook on are two cast iron ones that were my Mom's. They are quite old and very seasoned. Have a great Christmas!
