Holiday Presents

Here are a few of the wonderful gifts I received over the holidays that I’m currently enjoying!

A big ol’ stack of books! Yup, that’s 5-count ’em, 5-cookbooks. Now I have no excuse for ordering takeout!

So excited to start making homemade pizza! It won’t be nearly as good as my Mom’s, but practice makes perfect and I’m determined to get it right.
My new Kate Spade-so excited! Love how it sparkles.

Gemstone magnets to liven up my refrigerator. Love the natural element they add to my kitchen.

I LOVE the bright color blocking on these Kate Spade gloves-and the coolest part is….

They’re fingerless only on the thumb and forefinger-since those are pretty much the only two fingertips you use. Cool, right? My sister got the black and white ones.

My sister knows my love of baking, and got me these adorable Hummingbird Bakery notecards.

I got the Jonathan Adler Muse Noir candle I was hoping for! I love the quirky touch it adds.

My brother and his girlfriend picked up this one-of-a-kind wire cuff for me at a fair in Union Square. I love it!
