We know Santa has been tightening his belt this year but we decided were gonna send him our Christmas letter anyway. It never hurts to ask! Here is our Christmas List!
Nikon D5000 12.3 MP DX Digital SLR Camera
We went to a Nikon event about a month ago with no interest in buying a camera. We left with a stack of brochures and a desire to take better photos. When, our crappy Casio petered out last week on a hike in the Catskill Mountains, and we were left with only our iPhone to capture our precious moments, we vowed somehow, someway we’d get this camera! . :< It is relatively simple to use but has some highly-advanced DSLR capabilities. The Nikon D5000 is a good camera for someone who needs to take better photos but is still learning the intricacies of photography.
Nirve Paul Frank City Bike 700c Women’s Hybrid Commuter Bicycle
Paul Frank City Bike women’s hybrid commuter bicycle by Nirve® is one hot ride! It has a vintage style, hand-built lugged frame, three-speed shifter and a Shimano® coaster brake. It’s a tricked out ride perfect for neighborhood cruising. And we dig the luggage rack but we’d add a nice basket in the front for our hauling needs.
A Brain Pillow by HeatherWeathers on Etsy
We’ve gone all artsy-craftsy lately so if it’s handmade and a little quirky-we’ll take it! We love the use of the lace to represent the skull and the variety of quilted materials gives the user an anatomical study in cushion form.
Sushi Ring by CarolynTillie
More specifically a Tekkamaki roll sushi ring. You can never lose with teeny tiny replicas of food, when it comes to jewelry. And we want to make our love of sushi known to the world!
Pig Lamp by Ariel Rojo
We really need a nice little bedside lamp so when we saw this little pig with an eco-friendly back end we knew we found just the right one! Available from the MoMa store online.
Flower Wall Decals by PopWall
We’re not sure where we would put these charming little flower decals but we can’t help but covet them! As winter approaches it makes us long for spring flowers all the more. These assortment of wildflowers would tide us over until we see the summer sun again.
Brother PC-420 PRW Project Runway Limited Edition
We’ve been honing our sewing skills as of late and think we are ready to move on to our own machine. We found rave reviews for the Brother PC-420 PRW Project Runway Limited Edition computerized sewing machine. It has the ability to create monograms and labels, let’s you design custom stitch and is among the less expensive computerized machines. Once you’ve graduated to the next level you need a machine that can do a little more.
And of course…
