As I sit here, writing away on a Monday night, ‘Love Actually’ playing in the background, a dog snuggled up next to me I can’t help but feel thankful.  Thankful for this wonderful little place in the blogosphere that has made the world feel a little smaller, that has allowed me to connect with people many miles away…foodies, photographers, writers and artists.

Natha Perkins is one of them.  Natha sent me a kind email when she found my posts about our summer vacation in Colorado, and time spent at the Boulder Farmers’ Market.  We share a love of vegetarian cooking and farmers’ markets.  She is the owner of a small metal smithing studio, Luscious Metals, located near the foothills of Boulder that creates ecologically sustainable jewelry.  Her pieces are beautifully and individually made.

Luscious Metals

I know this because she sent me one.  A lovely, mixed metal necklace from her Sweetheart Collection that has the names of my three boys alongside stones hand chosen by Natha.  I’m a person that loves simple, meaningful jewelry.  This necklace is both.

And now I’d like to share her work with you….

    I would like a new trash can for my kitchen. It isn’t a particularly glamorous gift but ours broke a few months ago (about the time we were taking on flood waters here in CO) and we have yet to replace it. I would love to win a gift certificate to put towards something a little less practical :)

    I have been hinting to my husband that a new pillow would be very nice this year. I’ve had my current one for um, 15 years. Since I was in middle school. Its flat as a pancake now.

  3. Tara H says:

    The gift I am looking forward to the most is the arrival of my parents and my brother a few days after Christmas. I love being able to watch my kiddos enjoying time with Nana, Papa and Uncle Josh. As my kids get older Christmas is definitely less about me and more of seeing them be happy and experiencing the magic of Christmas. Merry Christmas Alison and family!

    The first Christmas I spent with the man who would eventually become my husband we holed up in our underheated, sparsely furnished house and gave each other small but meaningful presents. We were young and poor. It is a special memory now.

  5. Liz D says:

    The best gift I’ve been given is a heirloom crocheted blanket from my grandmother’s childhood. I think I just want a few books this Christmas.

    I’d love to win the gift certificate so I could give something pretty to my mom.

  6. Melissa Egan says:

    What a neat giveaway! On the top of my list is a kitchenaid pasta press. I think my husband would enjoy the benefits of that gift as well :)

  7. Alexia Abby says:

    The best christmas gift I’ve been given is a quilt that was made by my grandmother. Handmade gifts are the best! =)

    My favorite gift was the birth of my 3rd child. He was born on the 17th, but there was just something so special about having a baby around at Christmas time:) This year I am asking my sisters-in-laws to go in on a pair of Lululemon black stretch pants. They are something I would never buy for myself (I usually pick those up at Target), but would get so much use out of:)

  9. Eileen says:

    Wow, what a great giveaway–thanks for the opportunity! Such beautiful jewelry. My favorite gifts are always the flannel pjs that show up year after year. Who doesn’t love an extra dose of coze? :)

  10. Michelle Wehrly says:

    I have boots on my list (because a woman can never have too many pairs! :)

  11. Molly says:

    I am dreaming about a Le Creuset stockpot in yellow :)

  12. Amanda says:

    Such a talented artist and thank you for the opportunity to enter into the give-away! On the top of my list this year is a jewelry armoire which is ironic being that this is a jewelry contest. :)

  13. MaryB says:

    One of my favorite gifts was a bowl I remember from my childhood. It was my mother’s when she was a little girl. She gave it to me the last. Christmas before she passed away. What wonderful memories I have of my mom.

  14. Laura says:

    I don’t have anything on my “list”.. But this would be awesome!

  15. Susan says:

    Every year I tell my girls that I’d rather they make me something, than buy me something. It’s hard to pick a favourite amongst them!
    Beautiful jewelry! Thanks for the chance to win.

  16. Susan says:

    Since my husband and I have are having our home re-sided and landscaped, we are only giving gifts this year. So, I guess my wish list would be a few more days of good weather to get the jobs done. Happy Holidays!

  17. Kasey Johnson says:

    To be honest I want nothing more than my family back, next year to be better and for me to be stronger. This has been one of the toughest years of my life, diagnosed with extreme anxiety depression, my boss who I worked with for eight years left, husband wanting to leave me. I haven’t felt this alone in so long. I’m trying to find me and focus on the moment. I just want to enjoy the Christmas with my family who I love very much!!!

  18. Stacy says:

    Some of my favorite Christmas memories are traditions that I am now trying to share with my own 5 children. My sister and I would get a new special pair of pajamas on Christmas Eve, and we would snuggle under our tree!

  19. Deb V says:

    Having my three granddaughters and their parents together for the day.

  20. Kari says:

    I would love the gift of time to spend with those that I love. There never seem to be enough hours in the day to make everything happen.

  21. Shelley says:

    My favorite Christmas memories are of Christmas Eve at our little country Lutheran Church and our Children’s Christmas Program. The church was packed. The kids were in costume, the carols were resounding and the warmth and love filled every inch of that little church. After the service we would go to our home and have my Grandpa and my Dad’s sister’s family over for oyster stew and Christmas treats. We didn’t want the night to end, but also wanted to go to sleep so that Santa could come. My Dad’s Birthday was Christmas Eve…I miss him so much.

  22. manda says:

    My favorite present this year is just being ablet o go home and spend time witht the famliy.

  23. sarah d says:

    I want a pair of leather gloves or a throw for my couch :)

  24. Jane says:

    One of my fondest Christmas memories was on Christmas Eve when I was around 9 or 10. My dad was cooking, my mom had gone to church service and we were waiting for relatives to arrive and mom to get back so we could start the celebrating. I looked outside and saw the most beautiful, perfect snow and all felt right with the world. I felt God’s love and peace gently blessing us that night.

  25. Kaitlin Benjamin says:

    At the top of my list this year is a Kitchen Aid stand mixer. We’ll see if the hubby comes through for me!

  26. Phyllis says:

    I received my best gift early – a new granddaughter!

  27. Lindsey Frost says:

    What I want for Christmas is to be with my husband, who’s in the Army and left for basic last month and to find an awesome Christmas present for everybody on my list. :)
