birthday wish list

For the past few years, I've put together a birthday wish list on this blog. I don't expect any of my readers to get me anything, but I know that it's interesting to see what other people have on their lists.

Before writing this post, I looked at my wish list from last year, in which I started by saying that if I could wish for one thing, it would be no more snow. If only I had known what the 13-14 winter had in store. (Still. This was my birthday week last year. Ridiculous weather.) In that post, I also talked about camera lenses, knife sets, and purses. I'm pretty excited that in the past year I've gotten all of those things. My parents got me a Zwilling knife set for my birthday, and I got the 28-135mm (May) and 50mm f/1.8 (October) lenses as well as a Dooney & Bourke Bag (honestly not sure).

Since we're talking about things that I want...
You can click on the picture to check out this amazing item if you're interested. I'm sure that most of you are not. I'm not getting that any time soon, but I can keep dreaming.

Getting back to reality, this is one thing that I will much more likely be getting in the near future to replace my 10+ year old radio/tape/CD stereo that really hasn't worked properly (in about six different ways) since I moved to Milwaukee (almost three years ago).

Lately a lot of the clothing items that I've favorited / pinned / saved online have been Midwest or Milwaukee related.
That was designed for me personally, right?


While I've been reading Alisa Burke's blog for years now, I haven't taken any of her online classes (yet). All of her classes sound amazing, but of course this one appeals to me the most right now.

It wouldn't be a Rose birthday wish list without some craft supplies. I have a mini leaf stamp set from this Etsy shop, and I really love the mini seashell set, too.

Whether or not I need to stock up on any beads, I love to browse Shannon's shop. Check out a couple of her newest listings. I can think of plenty of ways to use these beads.


What's on your wish list right now?


  1. I love it when you end up getting everything on your list. My Christmas list from 2012 ended up being that way. How are you liking your Dooney?

    Not much is on my wish list now since my birthday and Christmas are only 9 days apart and our anniversary isn't until July. I guess I could use a new watch, but that's about it!

  2. A great wish list and (no surprise!) beautiful photos.

    Top of my wish list is an iPad. I'd love to be able to use a Square to accept credit/debit card payments at craft fairs. And I'd love to have internet on the go, with a screen large enough to read, and a keyboard than my not-so-smart phone.

  3. A friend of mine got herself a macro lens and she kindly gave it to me to test. It's pretty spectacular, but it's not on my wish list at the moment, because I'm not focusing on macro shots just yet! The bead shop is great!
    I'm not sure what I'd like for my birthday, but it's got to be something practical :)

  4. Those mini stamps are so cute! The lens seems pretty amazing, and I can't believe it's ratings. Wow!

  5. That class sounds like a lot of fun! And beads are always fun to shop for (even if I don't make much jewelry) :)
