Dear Santa...

In the spirit of the Holiday Season I have decided to make a top 5 list of gifts for that special architect in your life:

5. For those of us who practice the dying art of hand drawing: A French Industrial Drafting desk and chair from Négrel Antiques in Austin, TX.

4. And while we are in the topic of hand drawing, how about a sketchbook?  Leather-bound and filled with handmade "Carta di Amalfi" paper, these journals from Cartoleria il Pantheon in Rome, Italy are the only way to draw!

3. For the Apple fanatic:  Haydeé Callejas iPad case, gorgeously made in genuine Alligator skin, and dyed in "Emerald", 2013's color of the year.  Available at Mon Venin
