Tickled Pink!

I don’t remember being such a good girl this year but must have been if my haul this Christmas is any indication.  

  • My husband surprised me with a vintage (pink!) Princess phone and then shocked me with a Kindle.   
  • My parents bought me a macro lens for my camera.
  • My mother-in-law, who loves nothing more than to spoil her children at Christmas, pulled out an unbelievable show-stopper (orchestrated by my husband).  Can you guess what it is from the case alone?


How about a little help?  Recognize this from anywhere?  My header, perhaps?


Yipeeeee!  It was a banner year over here at Book, Line, and Sinker!  

How about you?  What was your favorite gift?  Did you give something really great?

      to be honest, i’m an awful gift-recepient. i much prefer giving gifts to others–it’s more fun, especially if i make or find the perfect gift.

      but if santa thought i was sooooo good this year, who am i to set him straight? lol.

        A macro lens? I’m quite envious! I hope you enjoy your Kindle and your very sweet new typewriter.

              My muffin got me out of Tennessee for Christmas, that’s all the gift I need!

              P.S. Sassy, just sassy! That typewriter is 100% kickass.

                  Well, obviously you were a very good girl! Enjoy your treasures! You need to subscribe to Books on the Knob now that you have a Kindle.

                      A macro lens, Kindle and typewriter? SWEET! I’m pretty much obsessed with macro photography — especially photographing random things like, you know, my lunch and colorful paperclips on my desk! — so we’ll have to swap macro pics! hehehe

                                I have been debating the merits of the Kindle and it is definitely winning out from a pure standpoint of I have no where else to put books! Love all the gifts…I am sure you deserve them.

                                  you know, that’s actually a huge selling point for me too. i am positively drowning in books and don’t have any more room for book cases. in the new year, i’m going to sort through my books and offer up some of them on my blog and others i’ll donate to my library. the kindle will save me, right?

                                  Wow! I am so envious! What a haul! I would be tempted to pout, but I did get a Wii Fit Plus, so I can’t complain. Much. I do heart that pink typewriter. 🙂

                                        Ooh I just gave my boyfriend a similar vintage typewriter for his birthday but in blue. Very cool! A page from a typewriter looks so much cooler than one from a printer. 🙂
