Joyce’s Wish List

Joyce’s Wish List (not all practical, but isn’t that what “wish lists” are about?)

Please no store bought body care (ie. lotions, soaps etc)  items unless “homemade” with natural (organic is good, but not necessary) ingredients.  We are trying hard to stay away from additives and processed stuff.

Feel free to mention to Allan if you get something and he can delete if needed.


(Please discuss with Allan before buying anything for the camera) It may be more expensive then Amazon, my favorite camera store for gift certificates is Gene’s in South Bend, they are willing to answer any questions and I can go there if I have problems. If you know the lenses are in almost perfect condition, used is perfectly fine.

  • Macro lens to fit Canon EOS 60D. Would love to be able to take “life size” pictures.  Preferably one that the lens does not move, but focuses inside the lens.
  • Prime lens for portraits
  • Tamron 150-600 mm lens (for Canon)
  • Wide angle lens to fit Canon EOS 60D camera
  • MeFoto Tripod # A1350Q1E, tripod that converts to monopod, “Chocolate” trim
  • Slide scanner Linux Compatible- Needs to have very HIGH resolution

Just for Me

  • Isle Royal Greenstone Ring (Pumpellyite, “chlor­astro­lite”, looks like green stars or a turtles back).  Would like a small, round–not oval– shaped.   Teardrops or odd shapes good too.  Just not oval!  🙂  Ask Allan ring size.
  • 100% beeswax candles, unscented, with cotton wicks


  • Heavy duty wood clothes drying rack for indoor clothes drying.  Will be mostly for jeans, sweaters and rugs.
  • Quiet food processor with good ratings.  4 cups is a good size.  Able to grind nuts, not necessary, but a plus.
  • A good food dehydrator with temperature control; two ideas Snack Master Pro or The American Harvest
  • Matching Couch and Love seat (not suede!) Need to work with Allan on this one.

Favorite Snacks-Promise to share with family (Amazon has some good prices, but I also check with Swanson and LuckyVitamin). In order of preference.

  • Raw Nonpareil Almonds, 10 pounds. Great taste and lasts a few months. Only from RY Ranches please. Our absolute favorite for an excellent price per pound.
  • Raw Organic Brazilnuts, unsalted
  • Raw Organic Hazelnuts (Filberts) without salt
  • Raw, organic pecans

Candy (Organic dark chocolate is good too.  The fewer ingredients, the better)

  • Theo Dark Chocolate is a favorite

Gift Certificates to share

  • Meijers (We also shop at Krogers and Martins)
  • Wings Etc (the BEST wings place)

I appreciate your comments!
