Window Shopping Wednesdays

I am not much of a shopper, much to my mother’s chagrin. The woman can spend days at the mall, while I start to feel itchy after just a few hours. It’s not that I’m not materialistic, I totally am, it’s just that the thought of adding more stuff to my life makes it hard to breathe. But I like the idea of things. So I’m an avid window shopper. I browse catalogs I’ll never buy from and hold my breathe when I pass the window at J.Crew. So while I’m stuck at school all day Wednesdays, I thought we could have some fun via blog. Let’s window shop!

Here’s what I’m coveting this week –

1.  The test tube vases from Chive.

The style shown is the “pooley 2 8 tube classic,” but I think they are all pretty fun.  You could put as many or as few flowers as you like and I love the idea of single stems versus classic arrangements.  I’m not sure how it would look empty, but I bet it would be fantastic with a few feathers in the interims without blossoms.

2.  The pink cuckoo clock from Patina.

This is so fun and kitschy.  I think it’d be great in a kitchen, though definitely not in the same room as the test tube vase.  Random fact – Adam and I have actually never owned a clock, other than our alarm clock.

3.  A delivery of “crack pie” from Momofuku.

Now that I’ve tasted my mom’s and my efforts, I’m dying to try a slice (or pie!) of the real thing.  This pie is sweet and chewy and gooey and perfect.

4.  A bottle of Chameleon Cold Brew.

From the website – “We brew each batch low and slow for more than 24 hours at a controlled temperature to produce a super smooth, extra caffeinated concentrated coffee with less acid than traditional hot-brewed coffees. We only use 100% organic, Fair Trade Arabica coffee beans and filtered water. The rest is up to you.”  I want this, lots of ice, a big pour of Silk Vanilla Almond Milk, and a straw!

5.  The surprise pan from Chicago Metallic Bakeware.

The cupcake pan has skewers in the middle of each cup so things you put in the middle of your cupcake won’t fall to the bottom.  I’ve been dreaming of vanilla bean cupcakes stuffed with Lindt truffles for weeks and this would be so helpful.  The possibilities are endless.

What would you put in the middle of your cupcake?
