Challenge #5: Birthday Present Wish



If you could a wish for a fun birthday present just for yourself, what would you wish for?

I think I would wish for the perfect set of dinner plates. Dishes are so very important to me and I've been searching for white-ish/cream dishes with a little floral pattern around the edge, for the longest time! Something tells me I need to wander on over to Anthro. some time soon! :)

For myself, I'd wish that this new career path I've been forced on turns out to be the right choice, so that I know I'll be able to support my children without worrying anymore. Heavy, but it's all I really want or need for myself.

Beth Perry said...

those plates sound amazing!
I would LOVE to have a new wardrobe...like totally picked out by Stacey and Clinton! lol

Brenda said...

Easy! I wish for a new camera!

Chris said...

Your having this blog challenge today is so weird and total synchronitic as this is actually my birthday so I wish for some Kolinsky sable watercolor brushes-totally a luxury but also a necessity. Thanks for the fun prompts!

Amber said...

I wish for a fancy camera with all the fixings...it's one of those "one day when I'm rich-er" wishes! =)

judy said...

Talk about a BIG wish...I would love new kitchen cabinets and countertop. I have lived in my house 49 years!

I would also have to say a new camera, or a new crafty room.

SO MANY WISHES! Definitely, I would wish for a house... I'm tired of feeling like hobo. We've been long-term (TWO YEARS) house sitting for family while they live down South. In the five years we've been married and have had kids, we have not had our own place or space. It would be so wonderful to have our own house.

Christina said...

@Chris ... HAPPY BIRTHDAY, lol. It's my little girl's birthday as well:) She's 2 (although for now I still feel like adding that she was a micropreemie, 3 1/2 months premature.)

So, I've heard you Scorpios are a stubborn bunch, lol. Unfortunately, I'm an Aries ... so any advice on how I should handle my Butterfly's teenage years? Move to a Siberian convent, lol?

I would wish for the perfect photo studio set up to photograph my bakery goodies. To have the perfect lighting and the bakery accesories like cool cake stands would be awesome!

Marie said...

I would love a charming old victorian house...My dream. Someday maybe.

Alicia A said...

On my birthday wish list, I have a pair of boots, a couple boots, a new scarf and a journal.

(I recently got a set of dishes from TjMaxx Home Goods that were an off white wih a floral pattern around that edge in the same color. Check there!)

I was very thorn between a new and bigger kitchen and new photography equipment that is on my list. Since I have had little time for photography (besides acting like a mommarazzi and snapping pictures of my kids many times a day) I will have to go with the kitchen. I spend most of my day in it and it is sooo tiny. I bake and cook all the time. I have my dream kitchen all figured out and it will take a lot to accomplish...maybe once - one can only dream...

Maneet said...

Really loving all your tags...you're sooo very creative and a true inspiration... :)
my birthday present wish would be to have a new fancy professional camera...I love taking pictures of everything and anything :o)

My birthday wish (for the 27th October) is for $1,000,000 worth of Anthropologie vouchers. And, while we're dreaming, a puppy.

Ginajam said...

I would ask for a weekend scrap retreat. All by myself! I could hammer out a bunch of layouts and get somewhat caught up (well not really).

scrapcat said...

I would love a new lens for my camera!

Amy said...

A day at the spa with a little pampering would be perfect!

diane said...

Hmmm I would have to say a little shopping spree at Anthro. I don't get to shop there very often. So that would be a treat!

GretaB said...

I'd love to receive the gift of services from an interior designer or design consultant. But, that's a little too lofty. Instead, I could go for new linens for our bed.

Gina said...

it would have to be a new laser printer!..your plates sound gorgeous..hope you find them :)

Ilil Ziv said...

I wish I could afford to rent a camping van and have a wonderful road trip with my family :)

Marie said...

i would ask for a new and bigger house, so i could house more animals than i already do :)

RachelM said...

I would wish for a Cath Kidston kitchen with all the trimmings!

Augusti_73 said...

What I want most of all in the whole wide world right now is for me to finish my thesis at the university so I can have my life back. On the more material side I'd love to get a new camera with a bunch of fun lenses to play with!

Micayla said...

A easy one, it has to be a new camera or lens. I am gagging for a new one but doubt it will happen anytime soon....sob!

Daniela said...

I wish for someone to come and clean/organize my scrap room.

Danielle said...

My birthday wish would be to have an anniversary band to match my wedding ring :)

jek-a-go-go said...

if we're getting all me me me, i would wish for a custom pair of shoes. they would have to be sturdy, beautiful and fit my wonky feet! something a little old fashioned but with flair...perhaps a two toned pair of mary-janes in aqua and lavender.

or a new camera or a house or an apple farm...;)

It's my b-day in 3 weeks, and I am wishing for cute baking products, like tin liners, cookie cutters, and some nice stainless steel measuring cups and spoons.
