Mom's Wishes

Peace on Earth....
OK, OK...

  • Crabtree & Evelyn La Source Hand lotion, face lotion, night lotion eye lotion - get it?  ANY of that stuff!
  • Anything you make or write.
  • Time.  Maybe invite ME to lunch, and make it at your place - I just don't like tuna, but for you I'll try.
  • Puopolos Candy.  I know, I know... but you asked.  Milk.  No fruity filling.
  • GC to Utrecht - any amount, from $5 ... I'll use it!
  • GC to Chico's
  • round vase - not cut glass, smooth
  • Any glass vase (colored or clear)
  • GC for facial anywhere
  • clear green or blue protective cover for my laptop - 13 inch macbook
  • GC for nails from The Face Place in Norwell
  • Bright or Flat brushes (not round) in Utrecht's 6300 series.  Or tiny 'signing' brushes.
  • Plain white teacup & saucer (pottery barn, Wms Sonoma, Crate & Barrel) to use, and have as painting props
  • funky scarfs (not outdoor wear) that do not itch.  Glitter is ok.
  • Drawing pencils, pens, charcoal
  • watercolor pad or sheets - just a couple would be fine  -  I cut them up
  • iTunes GC.

Molly's List

Santa already got me my present but here are small ideas:

cold weather gear for running (headbands, gloves, hats, etc)
attachments for a kitchenaide
oven mitts
gift certificate to avanti (hair salon in south boston)
wine glasses (stemless)


Can we use this again? I need ideas!

So, here's a list for me:

1. Urban Outfitters has texting gloves, which would be ideal for photos:

Brown is good, but they have navy blue w. red in some stores.

2. Plaid fleece-lined slippers from H&M (saw them @ the newbury store, the only slippers I like!)

3. iTunes gift cards

4. an ipod touch, preferably the exact same model I have, only w/o spidery cracks all over it. How would someone find such a thing? Hmmmm.....

5. a great book -- maybe one you've read?

6. fiction & lit journals.
I love this one: and you can get back-issues for $4 right now! (I have the fall issue already.)
also good: Best American Short Fiction, Pen/O'Henry Prize, American Short Fiction, Ploughshares

7. magazines.
I'm really into film magazines right now, but they are expensive! these are the ones that have really thoughtful articles:

8. Gift certificates to bookstores like Trident on newbury street!

Please post hints/wishlists!
