Pre-Christmas Jitters!

Just a quickie today! I know, I know, I know… I know I shouldn’t talk about Christmas before Thanksgiving but I saw something so absolutely charming today and I couldn’t wait to share it with you all. They are coming from London so I want you all to have plenty of time to order before Christmas (It’s called preparation!). They are Christmas Sacks! Look look look…

Aren’t those absolutely the most charming things ever for Christmas! And the best part is that you can have them monogrammed! I mean, seriously, how cute are these! I’m going to order one for Gracie right this second! Don’t worry, it will still be a surprise for her because she doesn’t read my blog (She says I’m too “overly enthusiastic”). The Christmas sacks are coming from a company called Not on the High Street ( They ship internationally so order early to ensure delivery before Christmas (make sure you contact the seller to make sure of delivery schedules.) I think the Christmas sacks will complement any Christmas decor and can be used year after year. So Christmasy, so old-fashioned and nostalgic! Any child would be so excited to see this under the Christmas tree. I’m excited for them, for God sake!! Love love love love love!

*Something you don’t know about me? I’m going to have a super exciting day tomorrow… Stay tuned! And also… Best news ever… We have a reservation to Ralph’s restaurant at Ralph Lauren in Paris for Thanksgiving! Thank you everyone for all of your help. I will blog about the whole adventure the day after Thanksgiving!

  5. My god, those sacks are insanely adorable. I'm Jewish and don't celebrate Christmas, I have never been bothered by not celebrating it - I do love the season - but now I am so damn jealous of parents who can give gifts in those sacks!!!!!

  8. Thank you for directing us to that website. I have ordered some personalize books for the children, a clock for my kitchen in California, booties for the granddaughter, a a few other things.

  9. Bonjour Ellie,
    My husband and I visited Paris a few weeks ago from Australia. I knew about 'Ralph's' and reserved a table in advance as we'd heard it was very busy. May I say it was a highlight of our holiday. A special outfit was organised, I was soo excited!
    The whole experience was fabulous. Mr Lauren's eye for detail is amazing.
    We had lunch in the jardin courtyard, filled with plants,flowers and beautiful people. I'm guilty of taking a few photos. The inside of the restaurant is equally as lovely. Oh! The food and wine was amazing. Ellie, I hope you enjoy your Thanksgiving Dinner.
    Bon appétit.
    Regards, Maggie Rylands.

  10. Adorable ! Go's into the ever enlarging " why didn't I think of that " box !

  11. I hope you write about your RL Thanksgiving...! You know that I normally write 'nice' comments, but I seriously thought someone hacked your website to promo these monogrammed potato sacks for Christmas. Sorry, I must be missing something because I absolutely admire your taste in everything else, including the layout of your blog!
