Thursday's Confessions


Welcome to Thursday's Confessions. A weekly feature where I confess, before you my sisters and brothers, the silly, the ridiculous and even at times the shameful. Why? Because confession is good for the soul. Even in Blogland

(picture here)
September is my birthday month, which is why I am thinking about things like Wish List...

Confession: I love a good wish list. And I love it even more when I get stuff off that list.
Sometimes I put things that are impossible. Sometimes I put things that are probable.
Sometimes I put things on the list that I know I will buy for myself even if no one else does.
Sometimes I put things on the list that will only happen via a miracle.



Confession: I am still very much in touch with the little girl inside me. It's true. In fact I am probably more in touch with her now, then I was when I was actually little (I was so serious!) This years birthday wish list is all for that girl - the one who could get lost for hours reading and cutting out paper dolls.




I really wish skating rinks would come back into vogue. Would love to do some backwards skate and some couples skates with my tight jeans on.


When I was eight my mom and dad bought me a pink Huffy.
I think it is time to re-live that moment.


Lovely footwear. All girls always need more shoes. And for a great cause! 




This exact set of Fashion Plates.
Wish I knew what happened to my set.


An Anne of Green Gables trip to Prince Edward Island.
Go live Anne's life for a few days.
How fun would that be??

  2. I have roller skates, but nowhere to use them (I used to skate in the road in our neighborhood, but now I am afraid of falling and breaking something I really need - lol - I miss roller rinks)....and as for the fashion plates, you can download croquis on-line to draw your own designs...its fun, I have my students do this!

  3. I make wish lists too. Now I'm going to have to ask my mom if she still has my fashion plates. I LOVED that as a kid.

  4. September is my Birthday month too, and yes it has me reflecting on my life. The things I still struggle with like these days making more money. I hate that, it's really silly that money has to be top on my list... paying the bills. There really is nothing I need, but maybe a wish list is a good thing, makes you think outside the box. Happy Birthday Virgo~ Hugs, Diane

  5. I miss my Fashion Plates! Being the oldest of 3 girls in a poor family I never really had any toys left over.

    I just got my first pair of Toms! I love them :) They are Houndstooth and super cute :)

  8. I loved the Anne of Green Gables books as a kid! We stayed in these houses a few summers ago http://www.portgambleguesthouse.com/. Not PE, its in Washington, but they had the same feel. We ate sea food every day,dug clams, and Onyx ran on the beach with the wild geese!
