2011 Wishlist

After I worked on figuring out what to get for everybody for Christmas, I decied to throw together all the stuff I've saved, listed, and bookmarked for myself all year, that I've thought I'd like to buy.
This year, also came along and made it easy to ‘pin’ everything one sees online that you’d like to save and remember for later.  They let you save things in categories; I have one labeled Wishlist, but there are things I'd love that are in the other categories too, like ‘Fashion’ and ‘For the Nest,’ etc. 
Then there’s Etsy too, where they let you ‘❤’ all your favorite shops and items.  So you can see all the things I want from Etsy, at my Etsy Wishlist.
Then there are past lists on Facebook, some of which is now mute, but it’s fun to look back.

Here are all the places I publicly save things I'd love to get myself (or get as gifts).
Stuff found in other parts of my Pinterest 'boards'
Etsy Favorites

And this is just my general typed-up list of some of the major points :)  
[And all the stuff in green are links you can click on for the items]
Useful things

Sewing Machine.  I REALLY want/need one…all the time!  Any experienced seamstresses feel free to tell me what might be a better one.

Paper Cutter - Any than can cut paper in strait lines, fitting letter-size paper or bigger would be preferred.  I so need one all the time.  This one looked neat: The craftlite cutter

Porteen Gear (Custom Designed) Camera bag
I REALLY want one of these, I posted all about it here.  She also sells several other accessories I’d really like- like camera straps and lens cap pockets, etc., all in her Etsy shop.  See my ‘favorite items’ of hers in my Etsy favorites list.

A Massage or gift certificate to a masseuse

Toothbrush sanitizer

Purple Pens – These are my favorite to write with

Ice Cream Maker
Have wanted one probably half my life :)  There's a romantic story behind wanting one.

Ring dish/box

A nice artist's Paintbrush set

Power tools.
I’m quite serious about wanting to build things. Have always enjoyed it, from tinker-toys and k’nex, to building club-house forts, and stage craft projects and sets. I’d like a good power drill, and air compressor with paint sprayer attachment!

Future Kitchen Needs

(Right now everything in my pattern  is dramatically on sale, some as much as 45% off)  We have two place settings right now, from our wedding.  But I’m kinda paranoid that one day they’ll discontinue my pattern before we get a complete set.  But they’re expensive.  I’d love to have pretty much any piece from the collection, especially the bigger serving items, and at least 4, 6 , or 8 whole settings.  One day in dream-world I’d love to have the entire collection for a fully set table.

A Food Processor
I was always needing one for something, but don’t have one.  This would be great.

Standing Mixer
Would love to have one of these (in silver).

Beverage Dispenser - A beautiful glass (or quality clear plastic) one, with metal spigot.  I have this perfect beautiful idea of what to do with one in the entryways of my future homes.

Crate & Barrel
Cool stuff I once accidentally found & wanted

Tea Infuser or (cheaper) scissor-handled tea infuser


A Neutral Brown Leather Bag, I do really love some of the Fossil brand ones with the rustic brass keyhole detailing.  I ‘Pinned’ all the ones I like right now, here and here.

Polarized Sunglasses.  I need some.  And I’ve also dreamt of having vintage Ray-ban Wayfarere glasses.

Watch – Have eyed some very sophisticated, beautiful watches in the luxury fashion ads of Vogue for a few years now (like Bulova, and Michael Kors), but Fossil has some really pretty similar ones I’d also enjoy, listed here

New Blue Jeans, wide or strait-leg…kinda like carpenter pants for girls.  I used to get them all the time at Old Navy, and now nobody sells them at all…I just want a comfy ‘boyfriend’ jean that doesn’t have to be fitted or ‘skinny’!

VS Giftcard. To the women I know, I have a whole wishlist of cute pajamas, jackets, clothes, etc. that I could use from there

Whiteflash ring (just a really skinny ring of tiny clear rhinestones)

Miss Cherie Dior (my ‘signature’ scent)


Conical Wand

Round brush

Just Fun

A pretty glass perfume bottle with a 'dabber' top or the old spray tops with the 'atomizer' squeeze air pump

-  Jobs in the TV/Film Industry, on set.
- A home of our own…any would do, but a couple rooms, and yard/room for a puppy would be even better.
- A garden
- A winning Lottery Jackpot, to help with all of these things
