Birthday Wishlist

I created a little mood board of birthday wishlist items. These are the types of things that I look forward to receiving for my birthday. 

1. ELVILDA throw pillow from Ikea for my new office space
2. The new Taylor Swift CD - 1989 (I'm kind of addicted to her new single SHAKE IT OFF)
3. Family necklace via LYTEJewellery (one of my friends from college owns this etsy shop)
4. Matryoshka Russian Nesting Doll Measuring Cups - so cute and I want them for my kitchen
5. Young House Love by the Petersiks - a fun DIY book

What's on your birthday wishlist?

Attention Please

Esme doesn't look too happy that Sasha is trying her best to climb over things to get as close as possible for attention.

This is what it is like to snuggle in bed with your laptop to try and get some work internet surfing/pinterest pinning/facebook stalking done. Hubby takes half the bed to play video games or watch Netflix and I take a tiny bit of the bed to work on my laptop and the kitties take the rest to smoosh themselves between us, on us or on our remotes/controllers/laptop keyboards. 

Oh, but we love them.

Ten Places Books Have Made Me Want To Visit

Savannah, Georgia, USA - to experience some Southern hospitality and charm as experienced while listening to the audio book SAVE THE DATE by MARY KAY ANDREWS.

Paris, France - I mean who doesn't want to go there? The city of lights and love. ANNA AND THE FRENCH KISS by STEPHANIE PERKINS brought me back to the streets of Paris and I'd love to go back someday and see the sights that Anna was a part of.

Prince Edward Island, Canada - I drove through PEI a few years ago, but I really wish I had stopped to see Green Gables and experience what Anne's life was like a la ANNE OF GREEN GABLES by L.M. MONTGOMERY (the museum there is supposed to be wonderful).

Tir Na Nog - THE IRON Fey SERIES make me want to visit with the fey, but this will probably never happen. A girl can dream though since I'd love to have friends like Puck, Ash and Meghan.

Hogwarts, UK - How could a list be complete without mention of the HARRY POTTER SERIES and Hogwarts. I've always wanted an owl to show up with a letter to tell me I'm going to wizarding school and to have the sorting hat tell me which house I belong in as I'm torn between Griffyndor and Hufflepuff.

Egypt!! - After reading NEFERTITI by MICHELLE MORAN it makes me want to visit the great pyramids to see history for my own eyes.

New Orleans, Louisiana (NOLA), USA - I am dying to visit NOLA to see Anne Rice's house and experience the French Quarter after having read and watched the movie for INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE by ANNE RICE.

Kitchen Makeover Inspiration....

This makeover will not be happening until the spring sometime, BUT my sister gave me an early birthday gift last weekend and I am dying to share the gifts with you. Pretty much the colours from the gifts will be the inspiration for redecorating our kitchen. 

What a nice combo - iron cook book stand, salt and pepper shakers, tea towels and oven mitts. So my new kitchen colours will need to be mustard yellow, a shade of blue to go with these lovely gifts, grey and white! I'm actually looking forward to it and I know I have lots of time to plan it out since we are still working on the rooms upstairs.

Thanks Sam!
