What I Wish For...

Welcome to the Party!  Now, first things first, this is a fun, shallow superficial party.  I really wish and pray for things like world peace, my mother's arthritis to be healed, to be a better mother and wife, etc, etc.  But, those don't make for pretty photos and lusting now do they?  So now that is all cleared up,  let me show you what I really want!!

A snuggly scarf from Anthro...I'll take the coat too!



Jcrew!!  All of the above please!

A Joy charm from Tiffany's on a simple chain... go ahead and engrave Baby Hughes' birthday on it

A Swedish Mora clock just like this beauty that sold from Midnight Sun Antiques

And speaking of Midnight Sun.... How 'bout it Stephenie?  Because I really, really want more Edward!

A beautiful antique secretary to paint and love

I want a little wagon like this to help out with the gardening!  But, I want to give it a little makeover.

I want an iPhone.  So badly!

A vintage set of canisters just like these!  I found this photo at 52 Flea.  They call to me each time I read this blog!

I want this!  I sent it to Mr. Hughes to add to my Christmas List and he asked me what I would use it for.  And I told him that I wanted my $9.00 fern that I have babied for 2 years to have a warm place to spend the winter.  I refuse to bring it inside ever since I saw the Black Widow lookalike crawling on it.  Did I mention there was an egg sac too?  Oh, if any of you know where I stole this photo from, please let me know...

An ironstone punch bowl.  I found this one here. I really want some long lost relative to leave me a whole set of ironstone....!

I would like these pretty earrings from Turq

and this necklace too! (also from Turq)

 I wish I had a snuggly grey throw kind of like this  one

I could use it on the plane ride to here

I have always wanted to go to Greece.  Maybe I will bring back one of these

Okay, I really want a Vespa
Think of all the gas I would save.  Mr. Hughes says no because he is afraid I will hurt myself.  But, if we move to Savannah Ga, then it would be perfect to drive around town.

I guess that is all I want.... wait!  I almost forgot!  A spa day!  And, one for my best friend and my sis!! I can't be completely selfish you know!

Okay, now it is time to party....

  1. I love some of the items on your wish list. I, too, would like a Swedish clock...and those chairs, too. I wish I had something together to post for this. It would be a loooong post. Thanks for becoming a follower and for hosting this great party!

  2. PS - I'm adding your button to my side bar. :)

  3. yea! im the first one to the party! thanks for hosting such a fun party! i forgot to add the swedish clock and a trip to savannah! i love both! i wanted a "playhouse" too that i keep seeing in blogland! cant wait to see more! xo

  4. Seems like a perfectly reasonable list to me. Your husband needs to get busy on this. Teehee. I definitely would agree with the cute little greenhouse and the gorgeous secretary. But first I ought to ask for a great husband to have the slightest chance of getting any of it!

  5. I love your wish list. I am right there with you on that trip to Greece. Those Vespas are so cute!

  6. I just added my wish list! This is a really great idea, I hope you get a huge turnout!

  8. I wish for your wish list!! Boy do we have the same taste,I really love that third sweater, really!!!! All the best,Chrissy

  9. Lots of great stuff on your wish list. I had to laugh when I saw the iphone on your list - my husband just gave me one and I didn't even want one! My old cell phone was just fine. He thinks this new phone will make me more organized, but I'm not so sure :)

  10. I love your list and all of the things on it. The only thing that I own that is on your list are the vintage enamel canisters. They are French and I love them. Hope you get at least one thing from your list. XXXX

  11. Hi,

    I loved reading everyones wish lists. They are fabulous. All summer long the only thing I wished for were sprinklers! It's hot in Southern California. I can't imagine going through another summer hand watering everything. Wish me luck on that one!


  12. Whew ... I finally finished my post! I so want an iPhone too. I used my wish on a "personality" trait! :)

  18. This was really fun! Thanks for hosting. I completely loved having an excuse to window shop for me!!
