Christmas things that caught my eye… but I didn't buy.

Here are some things that caught my eye whilst shopping around for this Christmas season.  I didn’t buy them due to budget, but I like them!

This holiday candle by Nest.  I’ve seen it at so many places.  Actually, I’ve smelled it too!  There I am, shopping around, and I smell something good! And I look for the scent… and it’s this one.   Although I don’t know if it beats my FAVORITE Christmas scent, Frasier Fir by Thymes. 

Nest “Holiday” candle, 

Williams Sonoma Christmas Peppermint Bark. It’s SO good. But I never buy any. Just “sample” it.  Why is it so expensive? Why is it better than all the knock offs??!

I wish I had a video of these candle lights below.  The flame DANCES.  It looks like a REAL candle on the tree!  It’s so cool!

Oh geez, Juliska. WHY did you have to go and redesign your dinner plate to make it cute?  Maybe next year… I’ll keep my eye out on you…

Saw this cute stocking holder at Anthropologie.  It’s not very Christmas-y.  But I liked it.  It seems solid, would do well holding a stocking that is full!

My husband and I have eyed these trees for several years.  They look really cool. The question is, where do we put it?? We don’t have room right now. You can’t hang ornaments on them really.

This year Restoration came out with this string of ornament lights. They look super cool!!  They are also super expensive.  Le sigh.

    Ooh, I love all of these things, too! There is just so much "overload" at Christmas time, it's hard to be able to pick and choose. I think we should treat ourselves just a little bit, though 😉
