A birthday list, of sorts (or a general wishlist of both big and little things).
Guerlain Jicky Chanel No. 19 (?) Ormonde Janye – Ta’if Rose Chanel No. 5 (Eau de Parfum)
(?) Chanel Gardenia
A glass tea pot (Bodum do some lovely transparent plastic ones) and/ or a normal tea pot (4 cup size, must have a filter for tea leaves)
A leather satchel, of the old-fashioned book bag kind
A stand mixer e.g. a KitchenAid
a 5-inch cake tin
Books – in general; especially beautiful ones, I saw a lovely edition of
Angela Carter’s Nights at the Circus in Daunt recently. Others include, but are in no way limited to: The Geometry of Pasta, The Age of Wonder, Piri, Piri Starfish, The Phantom of the Opera…, Les Petits Plats Francais Series, Tea at Fortum and Mason and just about anything from Daunt.
Flowering teas (of any, and every, kind)
A waffle iron

A beautiful, thin nibbed, weighty fountain pen
