My Holiday Wish list!

Hello everyone, my name is Natalie. I'm new here and I got recommended to this community by a friend and this seems like such a fun thing to do

1. Film Recommendations
I'm planning to watch close to almost 200 new films this year and I've watched 159 already. My original plan this entire year was to watch 100 new films but I've hit that a long time ago so I have a new target. I am a sucker for period films so that would be good, not so much into sci-fi but I love a good psychological thriller. Horror films are to be avoided as well but I love slasher films. I love anything that Audrey Hepburn, Lauren Bacall and Keira Knightley does as well.

2. Christmas Ornaments.
I'm running low on Christmas Ornaments and some of them are broken so I'd really love some new ones--- especially those that are snowflake-related because I'm planning to throw a snowflake-themed party for my friends this Christmas.

3. Drawings
I'm studying art and I'm hoping to get drawings, sketches, or any kind of self-made artwork so I can be inspired by others' work. You know, to push me to another level in my artwork. So I'd love to see people's first drawings or any drawings that they don't mind parting with.

4. Magazines
I'm looking for magazines with Leighton Meester, Keira Knightley, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Audrey Hepburn, James Dean on the cover, or featured. And especially Leighton Meester and Keira Knightley. I don't mind anything international or in any language. I also don't mind old issues of Vogue or Elle from before 2002. Or specifically THIS issue of Vogue.

5. Postcards/Christmas Cards
Postcards of places and old Hollywood films! Or Christmas Cards! I never EVER get mail so I'd love to receive some!

6. Old Rings and Junk Jewelry
I'm collecting rings right now so I'd love to add some rings that may have been pre-loved. I also love costume jewelry and the quirkier, the better. So if anyone's clearing out their jewelry box, I'd love to get some of your old, inexpensive jewelry.

7. Ribbons and Sashes
I usually wear a headband or ribbons in my hair and obviously I collect a lot of things so I'd love new ribbons and sashes to add to my collection.

8. Anything at all relating to Humphrey Bogart & Lauren Bacall, Audrey Hepburn of James Dean

.. postcards, magnets, lighters, matchboxes, etc. Anything!

If anyone wishes to send me anything, please leave a comment here and I'll get back to you almost immediately!
Do you have a list of films you've watched?

Gone with the wind is one of my favs, as is Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth.

There's a BBC version of North and South that is amazing..

As for indie films..
-The Big Tease
-Murial's Wedding
-American Graffiti
Urgh, I so need to watch Gone With the Wind. I have the DVD but I'm always so put off by the fact that it is so long. And I've been meaning to check out both BBC mini series you recommended.

Thanks for the recommendations!
Oh! Also, my list of film recommendations:

Anything my Miyazaki! My absolute favorite right now is Howl's Moving Castle.

Spirited Away
Practical Magic
Phantom of the Opera
Persuasion (Jane Austen)
Repo: The Genetic Opera
Boondock Saints
Cemetary Man
Shawn of the Dead
Fight Club
Office Space

That's all I can think of right now! Hope it helps!
Oh thank you so much for these--- I've been meaning to check out Spirited Away and Howl's Moving Castle. I've watched some of the films you've listed but there's quite a few that interest me as well. Thanks!

Bubba Ho-Tep. It stars Bruce Campbell as Elvis, who teams up with JFK and fights a soul-sucking Egyptian mummy at the old folks' home where they live.

I could not make this stuff up. It's remarkably good for a movie that fits the above description.

I've got a lot more suggestions where that came from. We specialize in weird movies here in this house. =)
D'oh! Shoulda read all the comments first! OK, how about 3,000 Miles to Graceland? Kurt Russell and Kevin Costner pretending to be Elvis.
i may have some odds and ends in my jewelry box.. and i can do a xmas card... and maybe a snowflake or two...
and its just possible i have a lauren bacall post card left if i didnt give it away already!

email me with what i said i could send you to kirsten at fabricdragon dot com... and your address? and pls put holiday wishes in the subject line
