Shamelessly bragging about my Christmas gifts

I love getting gifts. I'm sure most people feel the same way. This year Jason's parents and sister drove up from south of Nashville for the holiday, so we really got a double dose. We had 8 people in the house for 2 days, and it was great!

First, Jason, the most awesome husband of all, got me this wall-mounted drying rack. I didn't even know that these existed, and I certainly need one. I could only find the floor kind, and they're like $1000 or something outrageous, and they take up like 15 square feet all by themselves!

Next, my mother-in-law made a longtime wish of mine come true and bought me a little Happy House from Art Dept. I've been drooling over these for YEARS, and I really wanted the little villa to remind me of our honeymoon in Tuscany.

Side note to this: I haven't been able to find this company because of their unfortunate name. Just try googling "art dept." or "art dept. ceramic houses" and all you get are university art departments and other junk. I accidentally found them through some other blog one day.

And most importantly to you blog readers, my mom and dad got me a new lens for my camera. It has an exceptionally low aperature-- 1.8, so I can take extreme details and beautiful portraits with very little light and interesting depth of field. I'm still messing around with it, but it was great to have a toy to play with on Christmas morning!

OK, super jealous about the drying rack + I REALLY wish I had not clicked on the Art Dept. link. I LOVE THE TILES!

I got a gift from my brother (off my Amazon wish list) in which he called me a "looser" on the gift tag. Will post a picture later on.

Aughh!!! I got an Art Department house too! It's Marie Antoinette's cottage and I love it. I met them at the show in July - did I tell you that already? They're a Russian couple who live in Michigan or some other M-state.

Merry Christmas! Sweet drying rack!

I think I have asked Santa for one of those drying racks for five consecutive years. Quite possible Santa delivered to you by mistake! LOL HAHAHAHA! Enjoy it! Your work is deserving of a wonderful drying rack! Merry Belated Merry!
