All I want for Chistmas is...

Since I already have my two front teeth.  Here is a little list of things I would be thrilled to find wrapped under the Christmas tree this year.
1. A new lens to view the world up close. (For my birthday I got the camera! Canon EF 100mm Macro Lens IS)

EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM

2. For the moments during practice where I need to stop playing a pet a cute puppy. (A flute stand such as this one.)

K&M Folding Flute Stand (15230.000.01)

3. For setting a Sunday morning breakfast table for two. (Breakfast in Bed Set - Lace)


4. English flowers to decorate my home. (Liberty of London Classic Tana Lawn Fabric in 1/2 to 1 meter or yard lengths. They can be purchased also at Purl Soho. In particular Betsy D, Capel, Pepper, Loden-Aqua, Tatum, Douglas Stripe.)

5.  Books to curl up with on the couch.  (Down the Garden Path by Beverly Nichols and The Poems of Dylan Thomas.)

6. Heels to walk around like a Duchess.  (L.K. Bennett Sledge Court Shoes Taupe - I wear a size 9 and am not quite sure what that translates to in UK sizing. Found in the US at Nordstrom.) 
7.  British period dramas for daydreaming.  (Lark Rise to Candleford season 2 or 4, Downton Abbey season 1)
8.  To extend my little Christmas Village.  (Dickens Christmas Village pieces like the Devonshire Creamery, London Gin Distillery, Devon Postman, The Coffee Stall.  I have the Hollyberry Cottage and the Joseph Edward Tea Shoppe.) 
9.  Additions to fill my kitchen cupboards during the Christmas season.  (Twas the Night Before Christmas set. The Sandwich Tray or Covered Vegetable Bowl would be fun ones.)

10.  Rain boots for tramping through the woods or working in the garden.  (Like these Hunter boots.)
