Dear Santa,

My wish list for 2010:

1. A fantastic pair of equestrian style boots.

2. A wide angle camera lens {to hopefully take better pictures}.
but I also need to figure out how to use our Canon SLR!

3. A Parson's desk from West Elm.
{how about a West Elm in Western Canada?}

4. A fabulous piece of art.

5. A coat tree rack for our foyer.

{Saw this, liked it, but can't find it anywhere}

6. Domino: The Book of Decorating book

 {I know I am soo late in the game, love it, want it}

7. A gorgeous tufted sofa

{A girl has to look good even though she is a mom of 3 and hit a milestone birthday}

9. A trip to Europe with my family.

{to visit family}

10. And to finally find a home to call our own.

What's on your wish list?

XO  Barbara


  1. That's a pretty big list Barbara, but it's a good one! I love that coat rack (I desperately need one too!). I too want a tufted sofa. I saw this one on West Elm the other day and fell in love: http://www.westelm.com/products/essex-sofa-g190/?pkey=csofas-sectionals-couch

    It's not tufted, but I can't stop looking at it!!

    And I have that Domino book. I look at it every couple of weeks and will be my go-to book forever!

  2. Great list Barbara! I love those boots. I have a similar pair in black that are a main staple of my "winter uniform" but have been wanting to add a brown pair. And - I love my 7's too! Definitely my favorite jeans.

  3. Hmm.. I can cross out 2 thing from your list and put my name on it ;) But mostly I'd want the house and the Domino book of decorating (you are not alone Barbara)

  4. I second that wish for a west elm in western Canada!! And those boots, I'd take a pair of those too ;)

  5. love everything on your list!! FYI, i saw the tree coat racks at Urban Barn...they might just have white tho?!
    hope you are doing well and getting ready for christmas...!

  6. Hope Santa is good to you this year. I got my Christmas gift early this year-new chairs for my great room. (I've only been lobbying for them for a year!)

    BTW, congrats on being featured at Brooklyn Limestone!

  7. Everywhere I go I see hodge podge Barbara. Centsational girl and today Brooklyn Limestone. Look at you! A great list. Wish those boots would be useful up here. I'm getting tired of Sorels : )

  8. This is an awesome list Barbara! I want boots too!!

    Thank you for your offer of your lonely planet book, I got so busy I didn't have a chance to grab it! I will email you when I am back {AND I quickly finish up my rasts!!!} Talk to you soon,
    Nancy xo

  9. Excellent list, may all your wishes come true!
    My wish is for our addition to be done on time....end of June....

  10. I hope you get some things from your list this year. :-) As for the desk, overstock.com as a great replica in black and other colors: http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Student-Desk-Black/2665050/product.html?rcmndsrc=2

    Its called a student desk. I'm not sure if there is a difference on overstock between Canada and the US but I thought Id give a heads up. :-)
    Merry xmas!
