  1. I have been loving the Jonathan Adler jars and have been wanting to get some myself, but I wouldn’t mind getting them as a present either. 🙂 I also like them in that blue stripe. The copper flatware is looking great, I can’t wait to see your table set with those. Thank you for sharing, have a lovely week!

    1. Thanks so much! You should get them for yourself 😉

  2. oh i love all of your gifts- they are SOOOO you! and i love those phone cases!!! so pretty!!! i have a more “practical” one after dropping my phone too many times…

    1. Thanks Cassie, these cases are actually the tough practical ones too. They have slim and tough ones.

  3. Love the copper flatware:)

  4. What great haul! I didn’t even know copper flatware was something I needed until just now ;). And those canisters are adorable!

    1. Haha, yes copper flatware is a must! I’m loving it more every day. It’s so fancy 😉

    Oh wow! I am so in love with all your gifts. I am a gold person/freak too. I tried and tried to do the Oil Rubbed Bronze thingy, but never could get into it. Although, I have been contemplating spray painting my main bathroom fixtures with it….. since I can’t afford new….. and I have not had great luck with spaying anything that needs to be really durable in the metallic gold or silvers. And oh my who could leave out a new phone. I need (but might be a long time till I get) the large ones, so I can see the stuff. lol Sad but true.

    1. Yeah that might not work on bathroom fixtures. Happy New Year Sheryll!

  6. Yaaaay! Happy New Year Julia! Im so happy you had a great holiday. Loooooooove that copper flatware my friend. And that toilet paper roll *fab*.

    1. How about that TP holder, I don’t think I could love it any more than I already do.

      1. I am looking for the exact one. Lux holdings does not show it any more! (Crying tears)

        1. Oh Susanne, I know! She makes a different straight toilet paper holder now because the one I have had issues with the angle falling apart and not holding up well. It happened to mine too. You are better off just getting the straight one 😉

  7. I would absolutely love that tissue holder for Christmas! Happy new year Julia!

  8. Your hubby is a good listener I think 🙂 The copper flatware is soooo pretty!! I have a few of those copper “mule” mugs and love the warmth of the copper color. Glad you had a nice break with your family and I’m looking forward to your 2015 projects Julia!!

    1. Thanks Lisa, yes he listens good when it comes to presents 😉

  9. Oh my goodness, Julia. Weren’t you a good girl! Those gifts are fabulous! I never knew a lucite toilet paper roll holder existed. Bummer with the phone case though. I treated myself to the Samsung note 4 a few months back. I bought a clear case and there’s always dust and gunk getting under it and the rubberized outer ring is turning yellow. Those other designs you shared look beautiful. I’m popping over to see if they stock for my phone. Welcome back to blogging!

  10. Great presents! I think that’s the prettiest toilet paper holder I’ve ever seen! 🙂 I’m slowly easing back into projects too, the break was sure nice!

    1. Haha, thanks. And it’s so hard to get back to blogging after being off. I was hoping for the opposite.

  11. I’m with ya’ on the sloooow return to blogging! Working on tomorrow’s post, but I’d rather be hanging out with Netflix and ice cream for one more night. Back to real life:/

    1. OMG I’m a netflix addict. That’s what I do before I go to bed every night 😉

  12. Is it wrong to covet a toilet paper holder because I soooo do! I’ve been lusting after their hardware for a while now. Looks like Santa was good to you 🙂

    1. Totally not wrong at all. I love it

  13. Looks like someone got spoiled and seriously the fact you got a tp holder and asked for it for Christmas makes me like you even more, soooo something I would do! Looking forward to what’s in store for you this year! Happy New Year!!

    1. Love that you would do the same. High five!

  14. Wow- quite the haul!! Beautiful- love the copper flat wear! We don’t really do adult gifts at Christmas but I am using my Christmas money to order a beautiful Delonghi coffee maker that I’m ecstatic about!!

    1. We usually don’t do that much for adults either, but we had a tough year and an anniversary that sucked, so I’m totally not soaking up the adult gifts. Besides he gets to use the flatware and TP holder himself 😉 It’s a win win!

  15. I feel ya on getting back in the swing of things…even my email has not been caught up with. Ugh. Can I just say that I’m totally in love with that ring and the toilet paper holder. Totally gorgeous!

    1. Haha thanks and I know all about the overflowing email inbox. Ugh so boring!

  16. We haven’t exchanged gifts in decades. To us, that’s just not what the season is about. Our children do not expect anything extra just because the calendar says it’s Dec 25th. They are more than content to celebrate the true meaning of the holiday. Besides they have more than they could possibly want anyway. We have our health, the love of one another & a unshakeable family bond that has seen us through the loss of my father in the last 12 months. The magic of the season & those gifts are enough for us.

    1. We actually celebrate the 24th not the 25th because the 24th is Jesus’ birthday. That’s how they celebrate Christmas in Germany. There is no Santa Claus on the 25th.
      And I totally agree that no Christmas presents are needed.

  17. I cannot get over how amazing that toilet paper holder is! We don’t have a single tp holder in our house. Isn’t that crazy?? 4 toilets, no holders for the paper. Crazy!

    1. LOL, well what are you waiting for?!?!

  18. Love your loot! And nope, you’re not the only one who would like something like a new toilet holder for Christmas! I was hoping for a new kitchen faucet myself… Adore the copper flatware! Copper is one of my favorite materials to work with and I am so glad it’s finally getting the recognition it Deserteure!

    1. I’m glad you like it 😉 and copper is awesome, I agree.

  19. Ooooooh I absolutely love everything you received! What a haul! Gorgeous and thank you for the heads up on that amazing Ebay seller – I might have to see if they ship internationally 😉 Happy New Year darling, so happy I discovered your amazing blog in 2014! xxx

    1. Thanks so much and I hope that they ship internationally! I feel like you can’t find this kind of surf in Europe. But there is other amazing stuff, right?
