Welcome back to a second edition of Designer Diaries, where a few blogging ladies share what they're eyeballing and, this time, most are sharing their holiday picks - check them out! We have a few new friends joining us, so "welcome!!!!" to Lisa, Megan and Natalie!!!
Here are a few diaries to peek into, no tiny key or "pesky brother" status required:
So, y'all. The countdown is ON and, I know what you're thinking, but no. I'm not talking about the countdown to Christmas (though that is on, too) but the second season of The Crown premiers on December 8th, and I'm SO EXCITED! I am not much of a TV watcher - I honestly don't have the attention span anymore to sit and watch a lot of TV, but there are a few shows that are worthy of a good binge, and The Crown on Netflix is one of them. Claire Foy is BRILLIANT, and the sets just about make my head explode. So, while I should probably be sharing gift ideas for your mother-in-law, instead I'm sharing my The Crown-inspired wishlist - you know, the one you imagine executing sometime after winning the lottery or finding a forgotten million-dollar-bill in your (skinny) jeans pocket.
The fancy-schmancy side of me has been feeling like #bringingfancyback and I'm pretty sure I would live in a castle if I could. I love to rewatch these shows (Downton Abbey is another) just to soak up the sets after I have processed the plots. While I am not in line for any throne, except maybe the line to the loo, I'll just go ahead surround myself with pretties in my own house, with most being scored #thriftytreasure style at estate sales. (You know me... I can point to approximately 5 things in each room that were purchased new...) So, while holiday wish lists are much more practical, I'm going to be crossing off days on the calendar and living in my la-la-land where full sets of china and exquisite crystal float like sugar plums in my head. Happy Holidays!!!!
