Hi, I'm Kristi, and my birthday is today, January 10, and I'm (cough-cough
I live in sunny Florida and work for a baseball team. My most favorite things are reading (history, biographies, science stuff and classic lit); cooking (Italian, Indian, Thai and vegetarian); photography; my cats (4!) and crocheting. You could say I'm an obsessive crocheter; I have at least 2, sometimes 3, projects going at all times. I love to crochet on the beach with a cup of coffee or tea at my side. Sooo relaxing! I do a lot of hand-sewing, too, and embroidery. I also crochet and knit scarves and hats for the homeless and crochet baby hats for preemies at out local hospital.
Anyway, on to my wish list:
Some yummy, unusual yarn, any color except yellow, red or brown. Sport weight would be awesome. I'm not picky, really.
Buttons! Any shape, size, color. I have a crazy vintage button collection that I'm always adding to.
Crochet thread, any color
Embroidery floss, any color
Vintage-y embroidery transfers, like here http://mytransfers.blogspot.com/
Any crochet books or magazines you are through with, especially Interweave Crochet
Crafted Items I would Love!:Anything
1950s or 1940s theme
vintage tropical hula (South Pacific) or beach theme. I'm big on hibiscus.
Classic British literature
I love small pillows
little framed art like old postcards
small storage boxes (I really need a jewelry box)
necklaces/brooches/rings/bracelets ( I don't do well with earrings, tho)
girly tank tops (large).
I could also use something cute to hang on my front door!
A jar of whimsies is good too! I adore mini teensy things!
A collar for my small Tortie, Mimi, would be nice, too. (She's a girly-girl)
My favorite colors are sea green, blue, purple, black, grey. My kitchen is done in a red and orange retro 1950s style. My bathroom is all flamingoes and beach themed.

I also love Victorian writers, like Dickens, Wilde, Thackeray, etc. I'm a Pyrex maniac. I dig architecture, libraries, big cities, Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, film noir, Impressionistic and Pointillistic art (think Monet and Seurat), Miami Beach (art deco, yay!), and Japanese dining utensils (chopsticks or a bento box would be all kinds of awesome!). My other favorite bands besides the Beatles are XTC, the Smiths, Depeche Mode, Queen, David Bowie, the Rolling Stones.
lip balm (not wintergreen)
That's about all I can think of. Happy Birthday fellow Januarians!
