This is my grown-up Christmas list

Every time I heard that Kelly Clarkson version of “This is my Grown-Up Christmas List” on WHOM this season, I couldn’t wait to use the title as a blog post.

Here’s what I asked for this holiday season. The jury is still out as to whether any of this will actually end up under the tree, but I like to think I was a good girl this year.

A custom bag from Maine Leather Co. Shop owner Belle Hilmer hand-stitches all of these from her workspace here in Portland. Her designs are clean, straight-forward and will last forever.

I am a bloody mary fanatic and this mix from Waldo Stone Farm is so, SO good.

I really want a Fujifilm Instax so I can take street style photos using “film”.

The Nautical Whale Wall Chart (which was featured in Down East’s gift guide) for my future home.

What are you hoping to get this year?
