In keeping with tradition, the 2011 Neiman Marcus Christmas Book features items for those seeking a bit, or a lot, of holiday extravagance.

Dream of Jeannie ~ Dream Folly: The structure consists of a mixed-grain interior lattice system, a Sunbrella® exterior lining, and a plexiglass door and dome. The roof is made from vinyl-coated polyester with an acrylic top coat for extra durability. But it’s the interior that goes beyond your wildest, most decadent dreams. Let’s start with the pièces de résistance: a bevy of one-of-a-kind, down-filled pillows from renowned designer Rebecca Vizard.  Price tag $75,000. It is basically a very fancy tent you could have built in your back yard and run to for some quite time as needed.

Tiny Orange and Company 77 Giveaway:

“If you end up hiring the Company 77Mobile Pizza Unit for your next party at your house you might want to give the neighbors a heads up. When this 30′ big red shiny fire truck pulled in my driveway last week, my neighbors were worried something happened until they walked over and took a whiff of the fresh garlic, heard the the party music and saw the white canopy set up on the rooftop kitchen!” ~ Jen at Tiny Oranges.

Things We Say Today Which We Owe to Shakespeare:

phrases we owe to shakespear by English Muse

Becky who lives in London, is a 20-year-old English Literature lover.  Recently she scribbled out this list in a notebook at 3 am and posted it on her Tumblr page.  Within 24 hours, more than 11,000 people had saved it in their favorites file. Including me. Awesome job Becky, love it.  It takes me back to my school days,  happily.  I thought of my friend Ms. Nikki. This one is for you my dear, honoring all those hours of reading we did together for Mr. Barrett.

Have a great weekend friends – smooches,
