Christmas Wishlist #3 – Kirra Jamison

The extensive Christmsa wishlist of Melbourne artist Kirra Jamison!

Ok so Melbourne artist Kirra Jamison takes Christmas wishlists VERY seriously.  She gave us an initial edit of over 20 of her most coveted items (we requested around 10) and has since made numerous revisions to her shortlist!  Her hilarious follow-up emails over the past 2 weeks have been peppered with indecision and profuse apologies – ‘ditch the sandals (I’ve gone off them completely)… that’s it, no more I will leave you alone and I’m reminding myself that this is a hypothetical list and I won’t actually be getting anything from it!’

HILARIOUS Kirra!  We love your selections and we hope your nearest and dearest are paying close attention!  You’ve been a very good and hardworking girl this year so I’m sure at least a handful of these will materialise… possibly with the exception of the house in the country!?

Big thanks to Kirra for her inspired and very covetable shortlist, made all the more special by her perfectionist tendancies!
