This is where we post things we would like,(except money request or books by name). Please remember that we do not offer money for items we wish for because PBS frowns upon that. It also lessens the spirit of this thread and the forum. Since this is the holiday season, let's all try to help out and give as much as we can. If you receive, try to give. Sometimes the littlest things can bring a smile.

Note: If I write to you about something you have requested, it is only to inform you that the request is not what this thread is about. If you wish to leave your request in this thread, that is up to you.

First: Remember: this is the place to wish. We all have wishes. If you feel someone has asked for something too large, expensive or extravagant, just ignore. Please be kind. Don't make someone feel badly. None of us know someone else's circumstances, unless we ask...........................For those of us asking, let's remember this is NOT a place to stock pantries, get all our presents for others, etc. It's a place for members to wish for items for themselves and immediate family. Also, PBS rules do not allow one to ask for money, even for charities, here. You may ask for other items, such as stamps and boxtops, etc.

Here, you list a few things you like/collect/can use. Obviously, we all like certain things like credits, wish-list books, etc. This is NOT for that kind of thing. This is for things others might have around the house that you can use (for instance if you collect postcards, bookmarks, Coke codes, or if there's a candy you love you can't find in your area, etc). ** Please remember that books, by title or genre, should not be requested in this forum(I Wish thread). There may be other places for that. If someone sends you a book, please receive it and thank the member sending it.

Please limit your list to about 10 items (Remember, you can edit your list), and if someone PMs you for your address, please acknowledge and thank them when you receive whatever they send you. There is a separate thank you thread so we can keep this one clean and easy to read. It can get jumbled and hard to read with extra clutter so if we can do our best to keep it to our requests and the rare bump, that would be awesome :) It's important to thank everyone who send something either by PM and or the thank you thread so that we know the item arrived. Members do not want to send things, continously, to others who do not let them know the items have arrived.

I am wishing for:

- Anything cross stitching related, but especially patterns (any kind of patterns as I want to start cross-stitching for the online charity LoveQuilts and a wide variety of themes are requested to be stitched)

Bandanas, as they are the only means of controlling my hair. Any colors and patterns are welcome, but I especially like blues and greens

- Fantasy Artwork, especially featuring dragons, faeries, centaurs, phoenix, sphinx; but anything fantasy related would be awesome (poster, postcard, sticker, old calendar, anything like that)

- Anything Doctor Who or Digimon related 

- A DVD of the Spanish romance film 'Like Water For Chocolate' 


Long shot wishes:

I have a wish for a costume piece. I know it's a long shot but I figured I might as well ask.

- Gas mask. The kind that sticks out from your face like a Halloween mask with a huge nozzle and two goggles for the eyes (similar to this: http://fav.me/d2stb1r ). If not exactly that, I'd take something close to it.


Like I said, I know it's long shot but I figured I should just put it out there in the world :)


Thanks for reading my wish list!

Remember -

These members collect expired coupons  to send to military bases.   Coupons should be no more than 3 months past date, please.  Just PM them for their address and send a bunch when you can.  Much easier than posting here and waiting for someone to request them.   This is a great help to our military families.  (Only regular coupons, not those  for specific stores, please.)

Kimberly M. (nescioquis)  - please note, Kim is ni longer accepting coupons, thanks


Lisa D. (tommygirl)
Thanks to Kim, Lisa and Cassie and Jessica for their efforts.   If anyone else is doing this, please PM and we will add you to the list.

Hello Everyone,

I'm wishing for Windex coupons. I like the multi-surface vinegar Windex because it's safe on granite and marble.

Also, I wish for a brown Sharpie. I have dark brown bath towels and some cleaner with bleach got on them - just a small amount but I'm thinking I could work some magic with a brown permanent marker.

I need to re-line my coat's pockets; if you have some durable purplish fabric that you don't need, I can surely use it!

I have a terrific tupperware bowl missing a lid, and if you have a 7 inch diameter lid missing a bowl I would love to have it!!!

Strong positive thoughts for my daughter as we head toward "match day;" which is the day she finds out along with all other new MDs if they place for a residency and where. March 16th at noon EST!!

 Thanks in advance! Debbie
