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:
 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*

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!!

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 :)

Philip the Fashion Shooter said...

I heard that TESDA is offering courses. i think for short-term only. but that'd be wonderful, learning the basics lang. :)

Carissa said...

I have the same exact book (same cover) the Pride and Prejudice one, now I'm lusting over Persuassion and those heels. gosh.

Lee said...
