Birthday Wishes

Week 41 of the Wednesday lists.
It's my birthday soon and, as is our tradition, my Mom asked for a birthday/ Christmas wish list. It works! Last year I received several things on my list. Including the 100 yellow balloons. Why not try again?


This year I want...

an iMac with a HUGE screen


this image by Anne-Julie



a vintage camper and another long road trip next summer



this gorgeous calendar by my great friend, Georgianna



this excellent Sundance ring



a crystal chandelier


a custom address stamp and a new house in the country to go with it


this garden, this party, and especially this lace tablecloth

Hmmmm... Maybe I am hard to buy for after all.

Happy Almost Birthday, dear friend! You are not hard to buy for at all. I'm honored to be on your list and you might want to check your mailbox today or tomorrow. :) Great minds may have been thinking alike! :) xoxo

The camper may be a tough one...but all others...attainable
especially since you brought them into being with your words
I want a stamp too...always have...doesn't every girl just love having her name in script?
the mac...well..that one is a heavy duty wish....but heck. you deserve it
and when I saw that tablecloth...oh girl...I knew...romance beats in your heart like a hummingbird's!!!
happy birthday

Awe, a birthday? I hope all your wishes come true.
I really enjoyed looking over your list, great idea!
My daughter just sent me a link to a book she wants and I'm glad she did, as I am always wondering what she'd like as a gift.
Happy Birthday!

happy almost birthday sweet girl....
i've learned that as i've gotten older, i've gotten selfish with my wishes....as in, i'm done wishing and just going out and getting, instead :)

a new camera and some lenses are on their way to me as i type this and the 21.5 desktop mac will be finding my home soon...

so keep wishing...since that's what we all do....but i'm urging you to just go out and get what you want.
it seems that the message of "life is too short" is written everywhere lately....

Don't you just love the Sundance catalog? I know I do. Sigh.

And I doubt you're difficult to buy for ... anything with a hint of magic will do! :)

rachel awes said...

how fun to share such a list!!!
happy early birthday!
i raise my cup to you at this table covered in dreamy lace. xo

Jeanie said...

I'm headed straight to Georgiana's link because that calendar looks to die for. Sending early birthday wishes -- and I hope you get all of yours! (thanks for coming by Chopsticks -- isn't CeeCee terrific?!)

Tracy said...

Ooo... what treats on your list, Relyn! I would add all of the above to mine too... great minds. ;o) That gold ring and lace tablecloth really take my breath away...*swoon*... Hope you get all you dream of, my friend! Happy Weekend & Happy Autumn ((HUGS))

Well.... you could buy the camper first, move into it and then get all the other stuff. Or.... you could start with the iMac. Mine is large screen, and it's absolutely wonderful! Especially if you're going to work on photography and art. Also.... my iPad literally got me through five weeks of surgery recuperation having to lay flat on my back all day, so much easier than if I had been without. Streaming Netfix, working with the art app, and blogging. Can you tell I'm a fan? Go Apple!

Happy (soon-to-be) birthday!
(is it at this point still a very merry unbirthday?)

The vintage camper and long road trip are my favorite, especially if they come with that dessert table.

Joanna Jenkins said...

You have WONDERFUL taste! If your birthday wishes come true I'm asking you to make a few for me too!
Happy b-day. jj

Dorit said...

I loved your "Why don't you" list and this is a perfect follow up. Why don't you make a birthday list to beat all other birthday lists? Perfect taste and a bravery I couldn't muster.

tricia scott said...

Happy Birthday, dear one! you deserve all of this and much much more!!!

christinelaennec said...

I always make a birthday wish, but have never thought I could make more than one! Great idea! A very happy birthday to you when it arrives. I hope lots of your wishes come true.

Roban said...

I love your birthday list! Have a happy one! My birthday is on Sunday.... How close are our birthdays I wonder....

Nat said...

That's quite a list :-) Hope you get one of two items off it and have a wonderful birthday!

elizabeth said...

A birthday list! I love it. I hope you had (or have) the most wonderful birthday ever.

I have that iMac and it is lovely. I ended up getting the smaller screen, though. When I sat in front of the giant one, like if it were at my desk, it was just too too large. I needed a bigger head or a deeper desk. ;)

Sue (Someone's Mom) said...

Hope you have a great birthday! That is some list! I want one of those trailers just to park behind the house as my own "space"!

susanna said...

Happy Soon To Be Birthday, Relyn! I think I may have to borrow your birthday wishlist 'cause I like absolutely everything on your list, too! I hope that you have a fabulous time on your birthday and that all your birthday wishes come true in the upcoming year. :)

Patti said...
