Addition to Wish List Meme

Here is my wish list. Lots of stuff on there is actually stuff I am trying to remember for my kids and husband; I think the notes are pretty up to date.

Photography: Filters (I have only UV), books you find useful or which contain stunning images, any sort of accessories you think I might not have and should not be without!

Tarot: Decks I covet, listed with my Tarot notes. You can find out in the same post which decks I already have.

Scents: To wear, L'Occitane en Provence's Neroli Eau de Parfum and Ambre Eau de Toilette; Bath & Body Works Brown Sugar & Fig, Fresh Vanilla and Moonlit Path body spray, body wash and creme; for candles, anything that's a food smell but not a berry (vanilla, almond, coconut, peach); and for both candles and lotions, solid and spray perfumes, any subtle patchouli-frankincense, sweetgrass-sandalwood, ylang ylang-chypre-opium-myrrh, nothing that's too flowery (particularly no jasmine, lavender or rose).

Tchotchkes: Crystals, marbles, seashells, animal fetish carvings, folk art from anywhere in the world, anything with spiritual significance (stones from sacred sites, Magen Davids or rosaries from the Holy Land, etc.), miniature books, cat collectibles, anything historical.

Tea: Williamson & Magor, Yorkshire Gold, Twinings Lady Grey from the UK (the US versions of Twinings teas are considerably weaker), PG Tips, Taylors of Harrogate, Marks & Spencer decaf (we can't get really good decaf anywhere in the US!) If it's British and strong I will probably like it, but I particularly look for really good decaf tea because it's so hard to find.

Food: Chocolate. I prefer milk to dark, unless there's mint or raspberry inside. If you live someplace where there is Kendal Mint Cake, Swiss hazelnut chocolate or real Cadbury (as opposed to the less wonderful US versions), you can make me very, very happy. I love marzipan, smoked salmon, cheese popcorn (Smartfood!), pretty much anything that's spicy and pretty much all nuts.

Clothing: I'm all about comfort, not style. Second-hand is lovely, particularly if it's denim since I don't like it stiff. I love hippie stuff. Anything tie-dye, anything velvet or velour, Wahaba Karuna's star tops and skirts, Holy Clothing's blouses, skirts and dresses, Indian cotton skirts (I'm very short, so a "short" skirt is usually long on me!) I like oversized, elastic waist, lounging stuff. I also like glitter and rhinestones and girly stuff but it has to be in something that's comfortable in the first place. I do better in primaries and jewel tones to washed out colors.

Jewelry: Anything silver, particularly charms for necklaces. Magical Omaha has dozens of gorgeous amulets. I also like inexpensive silver rings with interesting designs. My ears are pierced but I can only wear very pure silver or stainless steel wires. I love things from faraway places and cultures.

Book of Shadows: Recipes, herbal potions, seasonal rituals, home purification blessings, Tarot spells, meditations, Jewitch celebrations...I am open to new ideas.

Gift certificates: I shop at Target all the time, prefer Borders to Barnes and Noble but live near both, can always use eBay, iTunes and PayPal. United Frequent Flyer Miles that you're not going to use by their expiration date would be very, very, very much appreciated by my entire family!
