i wish for.....




*no.1*




twiggy mannequin head
no, i still can't find one....
all i can find are other people's, like this one....







*no.2*






numbered-plates
for my little drawers, cabinets.....
again, i don't seem to be able to find them in hk....







*no.3*


i love these handles!
if i am lucky enough to get hold of them,
i will use them as handles for all the cupboards, drawers in my new room!
hmm....  i am now picturing my new room in my head with them....  nice & vintage looking....







*no.4*





dress forms!
~ latest addition to my wish list...
i want one that is similar to the one pictured above...
how will i make use of it?
as a model for my handmade stuff,
throw scarfs, cardigans around it....
i know, i know,
impractical!
but,
most of the things in my new room are going to be impractical....
of no use, other than to satisfy my *mo-liu* desire....

oh oh, i just remember another reason for getting a dress form...
i think it may make making clothes for myself easier!!

the first piece i want to make for myself is a camisole...
should be manageable??







*no.5*





















a vintage typewriter!!!!
thanks to joop for sharing all-that-i-need-to-know about different brands / types of vintage typewriters...
i have yet to digest all the information!
and one of the most difficult decision is
which color to get???
cream?
pale pink?
baby blue?
retro blue?
classic black????
arghh.....  a tough one.....



.....



so much for my wish list for now....


to be continued (to be lengthened..... hahahaha.....)

I think you may be able to get a no. 4 at a shop near to prince edward. it should be at Cheung Sha Wan Road (opposite to the maple street playground). sorry i don't have the shop's name but as far as i remember, there's such a shop near there.....or may be at those frabric street in sham shui po?

aileen ♥ motu said...
