TWOC: Christmas List

Dear Santa,

I have been a very good girl this year. Oh, but you already know that. Are you working hard on Christmas gifts? I hope so. I am sure that you love what you do since you have been doing it for so long. You must be very happy this time of year when business really picks up! I have already given much thought to my Christmas wish list and would now like to share it with you.

I would really like a new glue gun since mine has lost the little stand that holds it up and it always seems to scorch whatever it is sitting on. I think it's a hazard, Santa. I would also like some new pot holders because all of mine have disappeared and I am honestly tired of burning my fingers every time I try to pull food out of the oven using my apron. I would like some spray paint because I like to buy really old, ugly-looking stuff now and spray paint it. My favorite colors are oil rubbed bronze, chalkboard, and grayish blue. Could I please get some Kitchen Lemon hand soap from Bath and Body Works? It is the best. I also need one of those really long dusters for the ceiling fan and a little duster for everything else. The kind with the long handle and feathers on the end? Yes, one of those please. I would also like one or a few Tyler candles with either a fruity or spicy scent. I cherish my 2004 Southern Living compilation cookbook. I need the ones from other years. I am really wanting to make some fruit preserves so could you bring me a few jars for canning? Do you do fruit trees? Like ones that are already producing? If so, I'll take a peach, plum, and apricot tree. Just put them out back by the swing set. Now Santa, listen--if you get tired or are running behind, you can just forget about all of my requests and leave me a gift card to Marshall's, TJ Maxx, or Ross. Hobby Lobby would also suffice.

Well, I think that's just about everything. I am so excited that you will be coming soon. I am going to leave you some very yummy cookies and a fresh pot of coffee. I know you will be very tired by the time you get here. We still don't have a chimney so just let yourself in the backdoor. Santa, I always seem to think of more things I need as Christmas draws near. You should really consider getting a Facebook account so that I can reach you at the last minute to update my list. Just a suggestion. I will be thinking fondly of you often over the next 12 weeks. Let me know if you have any questions about my list! Thank you.

Love,
Red Writing

  1. I'm still working on my post! We have until next Saturday or is it tonight?

    Your list was too funny at parts (facebook) and too cute on other parts (glue gun). And I am interested in that lemon stuff you mentioned from Bath and Body Works. I will have to check it out.
    GOOD post, enjoyed it!
