Last Minute Birthday Ideas

Last week I mentioned my Birthday is coming up. My mom and my husband both asked me to make a little list of things I'd like to receive. While I'm more than happy to just eat Blondies and go on a vacation, I complied and made a little list. You can find it here. Once I posted my list my husband said I needed to give him more options. Shew... this birthday list is getting serious. So I went back to the drawing board and thought about a few more items I would like to have. 
1. Wallet.
I've been carrying around a pink wallet since I can remember. I've literally had this wallet at least a decade but somehow in the last few months it became ripped and my cards keep spilling out of it. Now everytime I have to get my ID or debit card out I have to hunt for it in my purse.
2. Wall Art.
I have been looking at palette knife painter Leonid Afremov since I was in high school. I love the colors and brightness all of his paintings have. I was looking on his website and Instagram and it turns out he does random auctions for large canvas prints. Our house needs something on the walls and I refuse to buy some random poster at IKEA to put on our walls. 

3. Life Magazines.
Remember the old Life magazine? Well I have this idea of giving our laundry room a vintage feel. My mom has sent me some old life magazines with the covers featuring the NASA space program. I'd like to get a few more of the magazines featuring big moments and frame them. Maybe I'll even carry on my moms tradition of old washing powders displayed. 
4. Ornament Supplies
I've been making a huge amount of ornaments gearing up for the Christmas season. I go through dress pins and foam balls like no tomorrow!
