Things I Want For Christmas

Yay, I got a GOOD new job! A permanent one which means we will be able to buy a new home soon and get out of this shoe box we are in.
I have been working a lot but have been doing some Christmas craft in the evenings while watching "Bargain Hunt" (love that show.)
Photos very soon!
Anyway, below are some of the things I want for Christmas.

Isn't this French inspired bed divine? Looks like something Marie Antoinette would have in her Petit Triannon. I am reading a biography on her at the moment, such an interesting woman.

Cath Kidston wallpaper. I could do so much with this. Feature wall, backing or lining for shelves, cover boxes and books....must have!

Pink LCD TV and DVD player for the boudoir.

Glam giant rubber duckie with feather boa. Aussie readers, David Jones have these.

Hand woven Aubusson rug in a super large size. The perfect anchor for the shabby chic living room.

Who can ever have enough diamonds?

Royal Winton wall vases to add to my collection.

French inspired desk and office chair. Love that chair!

And the gift that keeps on giving....Ryan Reynolds!


  1. Hi Peta, I loved this post! I like your Xmas wish list. I especially like the bed!! Good for you with the new job. Is it still in retail?

    chat soon
    Katrina :)

  2. Wooohooo sexy dude.

    That is one gorgeous bed.

  3. peta you are a seriously naughty girl so no doubt Santa would have you on the good list (he likes naughty girls) but that bed on his sleigh (with Ryan all tucked in) that is a picture that i wont soon forget.

  4. Love the pink stuff, I have a pink cell and camera and a pink tv would suit me fine also. Who is Ryan Reynolds? Don't know him but he sure is cute! :-)

  5. With your bottom wish I'd say that french bed will come in handy!!!! LOL Later, Lori

  6. Thanks Katrina and the new job is in retail.
    Jules, you know me so well LOL!
    Joan, Ryan Reynolds is an actor.

  7. Hi again Peta, yes I did hear from the person (funny that!). I am not chasing her anymore so we will see what happens!

  8. OOoooohhhh I love what you've got on your Xmas list! I'm a lover of all things pink too!
