Birthday Wishlist

With my birthday coming up on Saturday (the 4th), I thought it would be a nice time to take care of a little birthday wishlist...

1. A pair of Toms. I should've bought the pair I was drooling over in San Diego in August, but I did not. So maybe I will get a pair of my birthday or from Santa Claus :) These would be great or, to be honest, any other pair would do! I'm not picky!
2. Twinkie Chan's crazy-but-awesome new book. I can't wait to make Cory a cupcake scarf! I kid, I kid... I have mad love for Twinkie Chan as she has put an impressive modern spin on crochet!

3. Amy Sedaris' equally as crazy-but-awesome new book Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People. If you haven't seen this--it is hilarious!
Other than those three items, all I really want is a nice day with friends/family. I know we are spending Sunday afternoon with my parents, as my stepfather, Gene is cooking me a birthday dinner! Everything for the rest of the weekend seems pretty up in the air--which is okay with me.
Do you have anything on your wish list?


  1. I LOVE the background on your blog. :D

    And that's a great wishlist -- Happy Birthday a bit early!

  2. Oh I would LOVE some Toms!! I saw some really cute ones not too long ago and I am hoping to pick some up soon! And I had no clue Twinkie Chan had a book out! How awesome!! She really does have an impressive modern spin on crochet!! I love ALL her items!


    BTW, I just bought an Ivory Chunk Cowl from you for my mom for xmas.....Thanks to Janel for introducing me!! I can't wait to get it in the mail!!

  3. I just got toms a few weeks ago..let me tell you, I. am. obsessed. I got the grey pair so it would match everything but now I think I need more colors. Yes, need. Not want. Need.

    At least that's what I keep telling myself :)

    PS. happy birthday!

  4. Kayla-

    Your order was shipped this afternoon! I hope your mother enjoys it! :)

    Everyone else-- Thank you so much for the early birthday wishes. You are so sweet. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for the Toms... my feet could use a little love :)

  5. those exact same toms are on my wish list! if you end up with 2, you can send some my way! :)

    i found you via FN, and am LOVING your blog! :)

  6. I'm wishing for more fabric... vintage :) I love that "Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People" it makes me laugh!


  7. Buying Tom Shoes makes me feel good. Not only are they good for the environment but puts shoes on children's feet. What can be better than that???

  8. amazing list!
    i can definitely see the appeal! :)
