so thankful.

i am thankful for so many things and people this year. two of my favorite christmas gifts were from h:: juxtapoz handmade and listography journal: your life in lists. both books are v entertaining. jh is a great coffee table book filled with images of handmade art (the paper cut outs by peter callesen are amazing- he makes plain white paper appear to be alive). listography is a fun journal full of questions and topics to fill out (for example: list bad things you did as a kid). i have already started filling out some of the lists and i plan to ask h the questions and fill out his answers in another color. 

santa (my family and h's family) was super generous this year and apparently reads my blog. a few of my favorite gifts included: this bag, locket, shoescalendar and coffee table. h and i also got a new crock pot (JOY!) and i want to get cookin...anyone have any good recipes or crock pot blogs? what was your favorite gift this year?
