Sensible Wishes

Besides good health and time spent with my family, here my sensible birthday wishes this year:

Books by Haruki Murakami and Jane Austen
New painting materials + spare time to really paint:
Β Lessons
Lessons on pattern making and sewing:

And the most sensible of all, more flat shoes for all the errands I have to run:
Birthday Wish!

ps. I know the Jeffrey Campbells are not flats. I have been secretly desiring them for months now! Who hasn’t right?
11 more days to go before my birthday — the books are available at Fully Booked or National Bookstore and the painting materials can be found in Visayan Bookstore or National Bookstore. The shoes??? Well, I accept local ones inspired by these amazing ones! *wink*

  1. you are going to have a great collection of flats. that is true that when we have errand to make they are really convenient!
    I wsh I would learn how to sew and paint but I am not sure I would have the patience. i need a more immediat form of art like photography where you get the result right away!!

  5. I love Jane Austen. Such an amazing writer. First time hearing about Haruki. Might have to check out some of those books.

    I wish I knew the first thing about sewing, then I could put those patterns to use. Might invest in a sewing machine soon.

    Thanks for stopping by my blog πŸ™‚
