Dear Father Christmas

There’s a trend in the blogosphere at the moment of writing your wish list. (I’ve seen a few including here, here and here.)Well here is mine but first a memory about Christmas….

When I was younger, me and my Brother would sit down towards the end of November or the beginning of December and write our letter to Father Christmas, asking what we’d like for Christmas. My list would be a few items long – maybe 10 at the most. My brothers would be an essay. (He would sit there with the catalogue and go through it listing anything and everything).

I think the biggest two presents I asked for was a new bike (I was about 12 and cycling to school, this was purple and second hand, I didn’t mind that it was second hand – I knew my parents couldn’t afford a brand new one because I’d been looking through the same catalogue that my brother loved) and my electric guitar (This was different I thought I would get a Yamaha or a starter set from the catalogue. I got a Fender Squire Strat. I was so grateful that year.

Growing up I would ask for books – I loved reading and it was my way of restocking my bookshelf. I would ask for CDs and things like that but books were my first love.

I’m not expecting any of this but this is a wish list. I think my Mum has already sorted my presents and Chris will be thinking out of the box when it comes to my present as he does. But are some bits that I like….

1. This fab tote bag from Sublime Stitching – this stitched version is one of a kind but you can get ones that are printed blue (and because of the fabric you can stitch it yourself!)

Slouchie Beanie from Amyschmamey
2. I love the slouchie beanies that Amyschmamey makes – they are sooo fab! What do you think? (You can read Amy’s blog here and her Etsy Store is here.)

3. So I would say I’m a Harry Potter fan. I’ve read the books and seen the movies. My old school tie was very similar colours to the Gryffindor tie (Yup I am that geeky!!)

Made by Mary Rebecca – her blog is here and her Etsy Store is here.

Jo Totes - Missy Camera Bag

4. Yes I know another bag lol. This is a camera bag by Jo Totes. I saw one of the other designs on Elsie’s blog for a give-away and loved them. It’s really cool because there are dividers and bits so that you can use it as a camera bag but it’s also designed so that you can fit your other day to day bits and pieces in it.

5. A proper nice leather bound journal would be fab. At the moment I have a ring bound notepad with stars on the front. I found this one on Etsy. It’s made by Daniel Heywood.

    Awww I remember writing letters to Santa! You’ve got some gorgeous stuff on there – the Sublime Stitching bag is gorgeous. And as a fellow HP fan (albeit a Slytherin ;)) could not agree more with the necklace.

    My school tie was also the same colours – in fact it was virtually identical to the Gryffindor tie. Back then everyone HATED the ties but years later I wish I’d kept them!

      I think you could get away with it as Slytherin lol. Mine was burgundy and gold – the tie is still the same – maybe I have to abduct my friends school tie while he’s not looking at take a photo of it 🙂

      I used to have mine – last time I saw it was when I was still living at my parents – I lent it to my cousin so she could go to book day as Hermione Granger (and she won best dressed! Rock On!)
