It seems many a blog feature a wish list or gift guide pre-Christmas. Considering this blog didn’t exist before Christmas, that wasn’t an option, but even if it were, compiling a wish list would never do my generous and stylish loved ones the gift-giving justice they deserve.
My last blog was heavy on words and light on photos, so I’m attempting to rectify that here. After all, there’s a reason US Weekly has a larger readership than, say, The Economist (which might explain why, by extension, more Americans flock to the American Idol polls than the presidential polls, but I digress).
A few of my favorites:
No, The Selby is definitely not in my place, but his coffee table book is. Selby’s visual glimpse into the lives of celebrated and impossibly hip artist/surfer types is sure to inspire (or ignite a fierce spark of envy, ahem).

This eco magnet from Ontario Parks is courtesy of my Papa Dukes. My dad was green long before it was hip; in fact, he probably still doesn’t know it’s trendy to be a tree hugger, but if someone told him this was the case, he’d likely make some curmudgeonly comment before finishing his second Gilbey’s g & t and falling asleep sitting up.
