Christmas is Awesome

I don't know about you guys, but I had a wonderful Christmas! Santa was amazing! An Out of Print t-shirt, bookstore gift cards, vintage books with gorgeous covers, a lovely edition of Sense and Sensibility, the Annotated Phantom of the Tollbooth, I'm feeling ridiculously spoiled.
This photo is of a lamp my sister-in-law to be (my brother is getting married in May) made me! She used old book pages and created the coolest library lamp I've ever seen. I saw some examples of that project on Pintrest, but it looks so much better in person.
My sister got me book earrings made by a woman in Italy! They're beautiful and so tiny, I love them. With all that loot I can't help but be grateful, not just for the amazing gifts, but for friends and family members who know me so well. I feel so blessed. My Christmas weekend was filled with fun get togethers, too much food and so many wonderful people. I hope all of you had great holidays as well.
What was your favorite Christmas gift this year?
