B-day wishlist

Today I turn 45. It sounds like such a ridiculous age because I am really 27 in my head. 
(Be quiet, Mom)
Here is a bit of a wishlist that will not come to be, for this birthday at least.

Hiroshi Matsumoto
*sigh* The name Hiroshi Matsumoto alone, is romantic sounding, but his work is very consistent and beyond beautiful. I was going to ask for one but I peeked at his Etsy shop and the one one above is long gone and any that I sort of want is over budget, Boo hoo. I will bide my time and have one for sure someday.
The 4 x 4 inch paintings aren't crazy expensive but I want a larger piece.
 
Jack Rogers sandals
 If you know me, you would be surprised to know that I do not own a single pair of Jack Rogers sandals. They are preppy girl de rigueur footwear. I was the IT consultant for a Lilly Pulitzer boutique about 10 years ago and I wore Lilly everyday but just never got around to the "must have sandal"
Still want those damn thangs!


Also on my wishlist is a light fixture that would make other design bloggers slap their mom and say, SHUTUP!!!"

Right?!
 
Actually this was quite "tongue in cheek", I treated myself rather generously yesterday.
 Thank you Etsy buyers! I have the cutest skirt two sizes smaller than a few months ago to wear to the First Friday opening at my new co-op gallery.
That member/ownership is the most fantastic birthday to me. I am meeting new artists that are local far and  more savvy, talented and educated than I envisioned... 
and I get to be included... my fondest wish ever!
 
 
shut up.. don't make me cry
