Thanks for posting the update, Aimster. I can't wait to make my own list! Ok, let's have the weekend, then. D-day for Wish Lists and transfers will be by 11:59pm Sunday 1/8. I think as long as I get it moving by 1/9, we should have no problems for 1/20. If you can get your transfer made before 1/20, but not by 1/9 and I know you from previous Posts, go ahead and email me with a plan.

The stickers are an excellent value; one of the cheapest items you could purchase, but you get a lot of the key visuals and it adds nothing to the weight. As for the bowl, the material isn't listed, but I'm fairly confident it's glass, like the ones from last year. If you would prefer glass but the actual bowl is acrylic, or vice-versa, you can make a note when you transfer funds. If it's not the material you prefer, then I'll just deduct its cost (including Gratuity, of course) from your shipping fee.^^ ひざかけ is a "lap blanket." This is one of the most exciting items for me, because it folds and zips up into a ShellieMay cushion, a perfect match for the Duffy version from last year:

relieved to see the Spoons again! I've literally been regretting not buying those for a year! As with the Earring set, I'm glad I waited, though. The biggest difference between last year's and this year's (for me anyway
) is that this year Duffy's tie will be brown and blue, instead of just brown. It's like they made it for me as a present.
I didn't even notice the dual-tone nature of Duffy's blue-knotted tie when I looked at the magazine. This is one SWEET Sweet Duffy!
Oops, I forgot these!
SD HFY Dessert Cup (Duffy) ￥700 SD HFY Dessert Plate (Duffy) ￥600
My one and only regret about Sweet Duffy 2012 is that the lace trim on the cup and the lace heart on the plate are not light blue, with royal blue ribbon on the plate and inside the cup. Were that the case, this would be just about my favorite Sweet Duffy item of all time... This is one time that I wish OLC quality wasn't quite so high. If that laquer glaze they use wasn't so thick and bright and strong and beautiful, I could almost try painting over it by hand. And I really almost would... I
the brown, and there are
bits of blue...
SD HFY Dessert Cup (Shellie) ￥700 SD HFY Dessert Plate (Shellie) ￥600
The Strawberry Chantilly that comes in the Cups and the Frosted Donut that comes on the Plate sound scrumptious!
I just love that this is the first time this treat comes in the form of a donut and the OLC team used donuts in the design of the Mini Towels and Pair Strap. It's this kind of careful attention to superfluous detail that makes Duffy so special and with OLC it is always there, on multiple levels, inviting people who care to notice and share that moment of connection with the designers, and with each other.
