Shaina's Christmas List: Around the House Edition

Welcome to my Christmas List, Around the House Edition! This one was really fun to put together, although it ended up being more of a fantasy wish list. The items at the end are more realistic...although I LOVE LOVE LOVE all of this furniture!

We desperately need a new bed. Ours, from Ikea, falls apart literally every day. It is not a good situation. I am lusting after this amazing bed from Restoration Hardware...it is SO gorgeous. I love it.
Okay, this is a big fantasy wish list item (especially considering we don't even have space for this right now), but how fantastic is this gorgeous table from Restoration Hardware? I also love those chairs. Swoon.
We need a new dresser/chest/whatever. Ours is, once again, from Ikea and, not surprisingly, is completely falling apart. How sweet is this big armoire from Pottery Barn??? Amazing!
We also really need a new coffee table...our old Ikea piece of crap is buckling. Possibly because...it's plastic. I am loving this comfy leather upholstered one from Pottery Barn.
I also love the look of this big trunk for a new coffee table - it looks fantastic, plus has great storage. Just what I need.
We really need a new/second couch. This one from Pottery Barn looks so comfy and fun...perfect for relaxing!
I love this pillow, and I think it would look great with the one below...
I think that this pillow is AMAZING and I think it would look fantastic in my living room!
I love these fun fall dishtowels from Crate and Barrel...
...and these...
...and these.
I would like a gazillion of these little glass refrigerator dishes for leftover storage. They look awesome, and convenient.
These are my every day plates from Crate and Barrel. It took me forever to find plates that I liked, and then when I did...we registered for them asap. And then about a week later, I got a little postcard from C&B saying that it was discontinued. I was crushed...but still kept them on my registry. I know have 8 of everything (minus the mugs, I didn't need those) but they are still available online...and I'd love to have 12. And maybe the sugar and creamer. I think these plates are beautiful...hard to see the detail online, so I guess you'll have to come over for dinner sometime and check them out. This is the Atoll Perle Dinnerwear.
When Lisa and I were in Charleston, I found a gorgeous small 3 quart Le Creuset dutch oven on sale at Williams-Sonoma for the low low price of $75. I snatched it up, and have been in love with it ever since. I'd like to get a bigger one - like this 5 quart oval dutch oven - to roast stuff in. Like chickens. Isn't the blue GORGEOUS?
Also love this pretty Le Creuset 4 quart covered deep saute pan.
Aaaand to go with all of my beautiful new Le Creuset, this lovely teapot!
Whew. I guess that's it for now! I think I'll be able to create a few more lists for you...just in case you were worried these were ending! :)

Hey, they have those Le Creuset blue dutch ovens, etc. at TJ Maxx HomeGoods for a whole lot cheaper than they cost straight up. I just bought one, and I'm in love:) (With it and HomeGoods.)

You have awesome taste girl. If only we had all the money in the world to afford all of those things! I love the cushy coffee table and I think it must be mine :) Also...I do not have a Dutch oven and I really need one! Love the blue :)

I love the bed (like, love, love!) as well as the armoire from pb. I'll take the extra set you get :)

Le Cruset has an outlet in Michigan City, so if you are ever in the area, pop in and pick up what you need there. We purchased our blue dutch oven there at a significant savings, and there is nothing wrong with it. We've had it for over a year and use it regularly. I have a few more pieces I'd like to add to that collection as well!

I would like all of this stuff please!

I love all of those things. Love love love it. Also .. what bed do you have from Ikea? In a picture of you and Oscar that I saw, I think we might have the same one. Ours completely fell apart after we moved from our first apartment to here, so E rebuilt it and it's all good now. We moved our dressers in one piece rather than taking them apart so they are okay .. although mine is starting to come apart sometimes. I don't know how they are going to handle another move :S

I'm gonna give the hubs your email address so he has someone to discuss why I have so many beautiful and expensive things on my Christmas list. Because I might need FOUR of those pillows. And the Le Creuset. And new everyday china. And the clothes from J Crew. It's adding up and you're not even done with the lists! :) You have SUCH GOOD taste!

I totally am stealing this idea :) Just FYI.

And maybe you'll get to have a lil' romance in a bed that isn't broken? ;)

Jenn said...

i love ALL of these. ohhh restoration hardware, why must you be so expensive?

and ok because i'm cooking retarded - what do you cook in a dutch oven?

Mel said...

I'll take one of each. I think the couch would look good in my living room. :)
