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. 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.

Here is my real Wish List:

- 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)

- 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 or Marvel (Thor, Captain America, Iron Man and the like) related, I'll be happy to take if off your hands, no matter what the item is

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

3D puzzle or wood model or any kind of kit or model for building a model tower/building; I'd really like one of the Empire State Building but I'd be happy for anything that looks like it belongs in a modern day city; even if all the pieces aren't there or it has been used before, it doesn't matter to me, I would still be happy to have it


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! Happy May, everyone!

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.)


Lisa D. (tommygirl)
Word is only Lisa is accepting expired coupons at this time. Please PM her to pass on yours.    If anyone else is doing this, please let us know and we will add you here.

It feels like just yesterday I was posting in the April thread....weird. I'll be getting a PICC line in my arm to my heart next month (grr it keeps getting pushed back), then on to the IV treatments! It's gonna be rough, and I'll be down for the count, so I could really use some things to keep me from going insane!

I am on the lookout for:

--UPCs from Beech Nut Cereaals, Baby food Jars, or Stage 4 or 5 products

--an R/C car so I can play with my pup more! Nothing bigger than, say... a computer mouse.

--DVD's- TV series would be awesome, or some more recent movies- my favorites are scifi, fantasy, thrillers, detective shows -anything but chick flicks!

--K-cups, any flavor!

--one of those pull-down shades for the car window to keep the sun off the face of a baby (or puppy... :D )

--Large buttons with at least 2 holes

--Coupons: Any baby food, K-cups, Zevia, Red Baron, Nivea lotion (the ones for ANY size)

My wishes for this month are:

* any credits for iTunes or app codes. I just got my new iPhone and I would like some goodies for it.

* unique candy and chocolates. Something I cannot get in Tennessee would be great.

* any craft items related to plastic canvas or crochet.

* magnets for my fridge. I used to collect these, until I moved and lost them all.

* This one is a stretch, but, 3x or 4x men's T-shirts and shorts, or pajamas for warm weather.


Thank you for your time.
