Holiday Inspiration

Anthropologie

I've been meaning to get around to posting about my Anthropologie breaks. Let's just say I work right across the street from Anthropologie, and a couple time a month, when I need a sanity break, I sneak over to the beloved shop to peruse... usually flexing my monetary discipline. But today... there were some exceptions to the rule:

a. This adorable little bird ornament.



b. These even cuter ice skates.



c. The perfect star tree topper.
   (For 2 years, I've been searching for the perfect one!)



d.  Lastly, I first saw this gorgeous pie dish, but went back and forth battling in my head because I already have a nice one I rarely use... But then I saw the rolling pin!!! I've been having commitment issues to a rolling pin for awhile... do I want wood, marble, etc? But when I saw it, it was LOVE, and well, one just can't go without the other!



So, I've done a little wrapping early, even if the name tag does read...

I've been receiving amazing baking cookbooks from loved ones for the past few years,
because I was on an 'I want to open a bakery' kick for awhile,
before realizing all the hours one must work...
But I'm very much looking forward to trying out some recipes to share with you this holiday season!

So the question is:
Should these stay wrapped until Christmas?
Or do I use them for the holiday baking?

P.S.
I didn't purchase this little guy, but isn't he a gem?



Have you started any holiday planning yet?
