Something Shiny.......

Stacy Kunstel, a friend and fabulous stylist/Home editor for New England Home Magazine asked an interesting question on her blog stacystyle, what would you wish for Christmas if money wasn’t an object and you know at the time I had a problem coming up with something because I don't need anything (WHO OF US DOES). But I've had time to really think about it and I could do some real damage to our bank account:

How about a four-ply cashmere cardigan sweater knitted in Italy? I mean pure cashmere not the stuff they sell for $69 and has cotton and wool as fillers. Cameron Diaz wore this exact same sweater in ivory in the movie "The Holiday", took me forever to track this sweater down. If you've ever worn 4-ply cashmere trust me it's pure heaven! Only: $798

I love sapphires and this ring looks just like my engagement ring only BIGGER! At a mere 8.04 karat weight just for the sapphire you just know it's going to say something! Only: $25,000

I know I’m redundant about textiles but hey I love them, collect them and that’s why I deal in them so this amazing piece is definitely on my wish list. It’s a stunning 16th century Spanish Dalmatic in amazing condition but unless I suddenly win the lottery I only have this picture to drool over. Only: $20,000

Something I collect are antique frames and I’ve got my eye on this frame, actually I’ve had my eye on it for two years now. It’s a 16th century Italian Cassetta frame, honey if you need ideas here you go! Only: $10,000

Getting to spend the day with my men....PRICELESS!

This was a total self-indulgent wish list to see for myself what I might truly dream about. To be honest if I just get a nice relaxing Christmas Day with my men, minus the ear flaps on the husband, a roaring fire, hanging out in my pajamas and the husband serving me cappuccino’s…now that would be a Christmas Day!

So tell me what’s on your Christmas wish list if money was no object?

Hi Debra!
Stacy Kunstel sounds so familiar.... did she used to work for Country Home? I will definitely go visit!

Like you,not a thing I "need", but I did see a cashmere robe that caught my eye recently! And you seriously have to stop the similarities, or when we do finally meet we will be talking for days.... you should see my stack of anitque frames in the master closet!! That ring is stunning, and if I "had too" I guess I would take it!:)
Hope you're staying warm on your side of the mountain, cuz baby it's cold outside!! So grateful for no snow... yet!!

Your idea of the perfect Christmas day is the same as mine. But I have to admit, like you I just love to dream!!!!!

Cashmere works. So does the frame. Great idea!

I love your list, Deb! I adore Loro Piana so of course I would want the 4-ply cashmere, but that ring is super-stunning too! Thanks for the shout-out!

Love, love that Frank Pollack and Sons ring!

Well, since we are dreaming...I adore cashmere and that sweater is gorgeous. Of course that ring would be too tempting to pass up.
The frame is out of this world. Hmmm, since we are dreaming...I'll take one of each, thank you.

But my real life Christmas dream is very much like yours. There's something very special about things that have a heartbeat!

Fun post!

Love your list - and I did an entire post on Loro Piana so you know I would also choose something from their spectacular line. Also love sapphires and diamonds (my engagement ring is a similar albeit much smaller antique version of Princess Di's - or I guess I should say Kate Middleton's)= and the frame is stunning!!
