My fantasy Christmas wish list

Five days to go before Christmas! I've already got all that I need so for this year, I just asked people to give me pretty notebooks, pens and picture frames. But if money were no object and excess were something to be fond of, these would be nice:
  • an entire two days in the National Gallery in London. The museum is free, but accommodation in this expensive city is not!
  • a week touring the Louvre, another week just people watching in Paris, another week in the French countryside, then the last week at Cote d'Azur
  • go to all the Disneylands! Yes, it is now a silly life goal.
  • good tickets to Lion King in West End. Argh, I've always wanted to see this musical!
  • see the Scottish highlands. I'm not a beach person; I like lonely mountains and since I was very little, photos of the mysterious mountains and lochs of Scotland have always called to my soul.
  • while I don't like the beach, I won't say no to a nice hotel in Boracay, or a pretty house at the Hamptons or even check out some Outer Banks rentals
  • go to Milan, Florence and Venice--the birthplaces of the Renaissance. I studied Renaissance art in college. When I went to the National Gallery and saw the paintings, I really cried. I was so overwhelmed!
  • any of the amazing Bea Valdes bags, especially the very dark Edward bag. These bags are the most incredibly detailed wonders I've ever seen. Small wonder they cost a small fortune each.
  • Chloe wide-strap boots. I talked about this this summer. I still want them!
  • a Chanel suit. Just because. And I want to be buried in one!
Yes, I know some of the stuff listed aren't that expensive. But they're unnecessary. Oh, how I hate that word when it comes to describing things I want. Still, it's good to dream and perhaps some kind soul would send me a lovely thing or two and make my Christmas all the merrier!

  2. Yes, we must enjoy the lovely stuff on earth because in heaven (or in hell!), there won't be any of the good stuff!
