I've decided that there are a few things I'd like to have. Some people (perhaps my husband?) would like to know.
I spotted this bag today on the elements of style blog:
It's from a shop called Harabu House, it's amazing. Particularly because it's only $66!
I'd like a few books and this one ranks among them.
|Vera: The Art and Life of an Icon|
Of course, I just turned on cable and a movie called Attack on Darfur is on and now I feel like an a*hole for even thinking about shopping or presents. And while this is a dramatization, my heart breaks for Africa but I've got to turn it off because I'm just about to lose it. Have you seen the PBS special Pushing the Elephant? It's set in the Congo, Rose Mapendo is an amazing lady. The things she has done for love and dignity.
So perhaps instead of birthday presents we can just send something to her foundation.
