I've been pretty good this year, so I've put together a list of things I'd like Santa to bring me. As you can see, some of them might not fit through the chimney (or under the tree) but I can't help hoping that, with a little faith, some of them will appear on Christmas morning (or someday). A girl can dream.

Here are ten things that are on my list this year:

1. The crazy indoor/outdoor pool pictured above.

2. A giant soaking tub like this one.

3. This freakishly tall wall of books.

4. A bed tucked into a cozy nook.

8. A fireplace in the bathroom.

9. A wall of glass that opens up to the outdoors (ok, and maybe a mountain too. If you could manage it).

10. This view of the ocean.

What's on your wish list?
