Some Things I Got and Gave

We are back from our holiday roadtrip!  Big Sur was magical, and it was great to spend the holiday with friends in San Francisco, but it's also good to be home.  (Isn't it always?)  We kept it pretty low key this year with gifts, given the traveling and all, but here are a few things that stick out in my mind.  :)

1. Color study vintage locket, from Verabel  (got)
2. and 4. The Open Daybook - A beautiful perpetual calendar illustrated by 365 artists, including our friend Rick Baker. (got)
3.  Shanna Murray "Hello Friend" cup for Pigeon Toe Ceramics. (gave)
5.  4505 Chicharrones  (got - and holyOMG these were good.  They didn't make it home from SF in the car.)
6. Holiday edition red Salad bowl from Heath Ceramics. (got)
7. Champagne Truffles from Poco Dolce (got)
8. Kitchen Aid 6 Quart Stand Mixer  (got- yeeay!)
9. Stephen Sondheim's new book, Finishing the Hat. (gave)

Hope your holiday was merry and bright!


  1. Is the locket what you expected? I *almost* bought it for myself, but held out. Dying to know if it is worth it. Happy New Year, Alice. xo

  2. Oh... PS. I love your new header. :)
