The Wish List History
I thought I would share my new mug that my hubby brought back for me from Ireland. Isn’t it fabulous? It is Belleek China that made in Ireland. Now I have a new mug for my tea.
I remember the first year that hubby and I married. We didn’t have a ton of money but we had enough because it was only the two of us. Our first Christmas I was so excited. I am not sure whether he even asked me what I wanted but I think I took for granted that he would be romantic and give me something amazing that I would never forget. Much to my dismay, I received a MP3 player, a candle and a few kitchen items that I needed (because my hubby is always practical.) Unfortunately, I think I was wishing for tickets to my dream vacation or that magical something. I mean, who wants a candle and a spatula for Christmas? As I look back, I should have been more thankful but that was something that I didn’t learn until a few years ago. And that’s a different story…
Thus, the Amazon wish list was introduced into our family. This doesn’t mean I don’t get the occasional much needed household item. Now I might even request it. It just means that hubby no longer has to guess and I will at least get a few things that I really want and wouldn’t otherwise buy. We also use this list for birthdays. In fact, everyone in our household has a Amazon wish list even down to our little one. It makes shopping easier and no guessing for that family member who always seems to buy duplicates. 😉

So, I thought I would share some of the goodies off of my Amazon Wish List with you. These are items that have caught my eye. They might not be new as I don’t stay up to date with the newest releases. But I have seen them somewhere in my journey through blog land and they have jumped out at me, urging me to play. Whenever I see a item somewhere that interests me, I go straight to Amazon and look for it. If they have it, I add it to my crafting wish list. Because believe it or not I have 6 personal lists. Food/Health, Books, Home/Kitchen, Sewing/Crafting, Clothing/Style and personal.
So, here we go!
Happy Tea Day! I am playing along with Elizabeth today.
