Lust List: Wish Upon A Star

When I was a little girl I wanted a sister more than anything.

I loved my little brother (hair pulling little mongrel that he was) but when my parents told me they were having another baby I wished on everything I could think of that it would be a sister: Wishbones, falling leaves, an eyelash on a cheek, the first street light turning on. And stars. So many stars.

My little sister’s not well at the moment, so I’m doing a lot more wishing. Every star in the sky, Mae. I love you.

  1. All the best wishes to your sister! And, coincidence. I was just (like, 3 minutes ago) looking at “galaxy” items on Etsy. Saw some very cool skirts and shoes.

  2. We are shedding a few tears here on reading this. Your words touched Mae and the rest of us. Its lovely to hear. She’s feeling a bit better today and we’re laughing at the animal antics.

  3. Lots of stars and positive thoughts going to Mae, your family and to you. I hope your lovely sister gets better soon and the sun is shining in your world once more *hugs*

  4. I haven’t commented in a long time, but I still read every post of yours. The power of family is something that is always felt most when one member is ill. I wish the best for your sister, yourself and the rest of your family. Here is a song that reminds me of my love for my sisters and the wonder of the universe – Emily by Joanna Newsom http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ak8S8FN3ycA

  5. Sending positive thoughts to you and your family throughout this hard time. I hope your sister is feeling better in the near future. x

  6. Lilli and Mae…

    I too always wanted a little sister and I got my wish too… And she is my best friend. I am even having her as my one and only bridesmaid in my up coming wedding…

    I can see the sisterly love you share and when I read on IG tonight about Mae I really felt for her and for your whole family.

    I wish Mae all the love and strength in the world and to you Lilli and the rest of your family.

    Hold each other tight and share your love and feelings together.

    I know we haven’t met but as a fellow Melbourne gal I feel a connection to you and I can tell you have a close bond like I have with my sister…. So I just wanted to say some words xxxxxxxxxx

    Love Donna πŸ™‚

  7. I only discovered your blog a few months ago Lilli and lost a rainy Saturday going back through all your posts, falling more and more in love with you as I read each one. Finally, here was a girl after my own heart. I check in on you a couple of times a week, so I was really saddened to read of your sister not being well. I read this post and it made me think of another pretty star necklace that you could wish upon and feel good about it as well. I grant wishes at Make-A-Wish and we were really excited to see that Sass and Bide had brought out these necklaces again. Thought it might be a nice addition to your collection of wish jewellery πŸ™‚ I’ll certainly wish upon mine for your beautiful sister.
