You may have noticed that these lists oddly resemble the two main protagonists of this blog: Mr. Radar and me, Hilary Bee. It's true. I want everything on this list and I'll bet you will find something to like, too. Do you have any special holiday wishes? I wish for a holiday season full of of hugs, mugs of hot tea and warm cocoa, cookies and fudge, some extra coal (for warmth, like the bookkeepers in A Christmas Carol). Maybe the thing you're wishing for is on this list.
10. Morning Glory Bib Apron
I have to have a bib apron. I always spill on my front when baking, and a half apron just doesn't cut the mustard.

9. Harney & Sons Hot Cinnamon Spice Tea
Warm up your insides with this divine tea. The decorative tin makes a beautiful stocking stuffer.
Harney & Sons Tea
8. Zhena Gypsy Tea Coconut Chai Tea
I know what you are thinking. I must be nuts to want this much tea. But I drink a LOT of tea. And this Coconut Chai Tea is the perfect, cozy cup.
Zhena's Gypsy Tea
7. Hilary Bee's Pizzelle Cookies
To go with all that tea. Not too sweet, the perfect accompaniment to tea or espresso.
6. The Blessings of the Animals, by Katrina Kittle
Katrina is Dayton based, and was kind enough to come to the South Park book club! This has been on my reading list for a long time. My goal is to finish it by January.
5.Glitter and Felt Acorns
Perfect for the Christmas tree. We haven't trimmed our tree yet- we usually trim it on December 13, our wedding anniversary.
4. Sufjan Stevens Songs for Christmas
Easily one of my Christmas albums. If you like this album, check out his love letter to Michigan or his newest, Age of Adz.

Listen to NPR any time with this beauty. If I had this, I'd tuck it under my pillow, and listen to Ira Glass streaming into my ear.

2.I Heart Michigan. And Ohio.
My two great loves, Michigan and Ohio. Reverent of my past, hopeful for my future.
1.Around my French Table
Cookbooks are the gifts that keep giving! I got Dorie's Baking, from My Home to Yours for my birthday. I've tested several recipes from French Table- and they are great. Dorie does not disappoint.
