Also, for the record, some of you know that all year I've been talking about how I want to do something for this milestone birthday. I have plans in place so presents or not, I really can't complain. I'm also still riding on a high of getting kittens and an SLR for Christmas. But you know, I don't say no to presents either.
There are a couple bigger items that are on my wish list right now. The first is a second SLR lens. I have the 18-55mm lens that came with my Rebel.
55-250mm. For the most part, the reviews are great, and it does seem like a good fit for a lot of the photography that I do. Recently I've also been researching this 28-135mm lens, which is a comparable price and quality and seems like a good fit. I am completely open to other lenses and would appreciate advice on this topic.
The other big item on my list is a new set of kitchen knives. We have a set that came from a Bed Bath 'n Beyond kitchen kit that Jake got when he started undergrad. It's held up surprisingly well through a whole lot of cooking, but it is way past time to get something much higher quality.
I am really picky about purses. The huge bag trend doesn't help, as I really don't want anything big. I also don't like spending a lot of money on bags. The purse that I've been using for every day is okay, but it's seen better days. I want something that feels more "me"...I just haven't found it yet. This is one of my favorite bags on Etsy right now.
Since I've gotten more serious about my photography, I've been enjoying retro camera items. Most likely I will end up making some sort of wall art or other item myself at some point, but here are just a couple of my favorite camera picks on Etsy.
Of course I never get tired of browsing and lusting after beads. Here are a few great new items from Shannon's shop.
What's on your wish list right now?
