quick pretty things

i love shopping for christmas presents, i really do. but while i was out shopping for other people, i happened to find a lot of things that i really liked. don't worry - with the exception of the owl wallet, i was able to restrain myself. but i still thought i'd quickly post some of my favorite things i saw while out and about...

and now, a few quick pretty things that caught my eye today:

chrysanthemum vase. i love the color combination of aqua and orange, and the pop-art feel of the flower.

penguin books postcards. i would love these for decorating, and for sending!

this is kind of a must-have for me, since puffins are my favorite bird. love it. covet.
 these plates seem like the perfect intermediary between adult plates and fun plates.
 a pop-up book of the little prince!!! can you believe it?? almost as good as my illustrated copy of the life of pi.
all over the internet
 coeur de pirate's second cd (blonde) came out november and i completely missed it. check it out and listen to some tracks..

while we're talking about french things, i also found out today that they made a movie of one of my favorite books. i am a little worried that the movie poster says "freely inspired by the elegance of the hedgehog," however, i still want to see it. watch the trailer!

reusable produce bags! these i really need and want for my farmers market trips. and let's face it, i probably won't make them on my own.

paper source's annual calendar is always beautiful.
 and finally, the one non-gift thing i did let myself purchase: a new wallet with a lyric from one of my favorite songs! heaven.

the end. merry merry!
