Go Retro's Ultimate Wish List for Santa

A visit with Santa, circa 1975
This will probably be the last post I can get up before Christmas and in case you couldn't tell, the blogging has been sporadic this month - chalk it up to seasonal craziness. But before I get ready to nosh on the roast beast and Polish gingerbread cake, I wanted to have a little fun and fantasize for a moment about what my ultimate Christmas wish list for Santa would be today. A lot has changed since that girl in the photo with the Peanuts jumper sat on Santa's lap and asked for a Speak 'N Spell. Now of course, Christmas is all about giving and frankly I'd only feel comfortable with this fantasy gift scenario if there were no problems in the world, and everyone had enough money to live on and enough food to eat. So keeping that in mind, here's 10 fantasy gifts I'd love to receive. Santa Baby, slip some of these under the tree for me, will you? I've been an awfully good girl... 

1. A mid-century modern style ranch, built in the 50s or 60s with a garage or carport.
2. The newly (yet retro) redesigned Chevy Camaro, in Inferno Orange
3. A guitar lesson with John Sebastian
4. A retro style bicycle
5. A vintage Beatles lunchbox (image courtesy DesignCrave.com)
6. All seasons of Mad Men available on DVD so far.
7. A Gibson Dove guitar
8. A pair of white leather gogo boots.
9. A (straight and available) boyfriend who reminds me of Kevin Spacey.
10. That all of my readers and friends enjoy an equally swinging Christmas!
I hope that all of you receive what you want this Christmas, but most of all love and happiness. Seasons Greetings, everyone!


  1. Oh man! I wish I could get you those Go-Go boots and John Sebastian!

    Have a great holiday!

  2. Merry Christmas to you, too! That is such a great wish list :)

  3. You are adorable! I hope you get that Kevin Spacey lookalike under your tree! Merry Xmas and happy 2011!

  4. Merry Christmas, Alessandra, Amanda, Lidian, and Mimi! Hope Santa is good to you all!

  5. For some reason, I can vividly picture you in a light blue go go dress with those white boots and headband. That guitar is really cool, and retro looking bikes are incredibly affordable these days. (around 80.00 or so for a Schwinn or huffy one speed) Merry Christmas Girlie!

  6. That is a very cute outfit that you are wearing. And that Polish gingerbread cake sure does sound delicious. Hope that you had a great Christmas Day.

  7. oops - forgot to mention that I really like your wish list.

  8. Merry Christmas, Darrin and Lara Ann! You know, maybe next year I'll scan and share the Polish cake recipe...considering it came from an old women's magazine from the 50s or 60s. Hope Santa was good to everyone!

  9. Great top 10! Particulary #1 the modern style ranch! I'm lovin' your blog and I've added you to my 'links' list. Hope you have a great Christmas break and a Happy New Year!!

  10. Hey Budd, thanks for your comments and for adding me to your roll...I'll check out your blog. Happy holidays to you as well!

  11. What a cool retro list! Every year I ask for a new Rickenbacker, a mini cooper and some fondue forks. Still waiting! Thanks for another fun year of blogging. Happy New Year Retro Girl!


  12. Great Christmas list. I hope you received one of those wish items.

  13. Ooooo, I love Rickenbacker guitars. Happy holidays, Greg and 42N!

  14. Every time I see Kevin Spacey, I think of you and hope his single doppleganger appears in your life. Maybe get those white go-go boots and a handsome nice Mad Man will fall into your lap, or you into his :-)

  15. I have the Beatles lunchbox with thermos. :-)
    Can't give it to you, but it is for sell. ;-)

  16. Nice and very helpful information i have got from your post. Even your whole blog is full of interesting information which is the great sign of a great blogger.
