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 sagaform season baking dish from Fjorn.

This stoneware dish goes from oven-to-table, and the sizing is much more reasonable than the dishes I showed you last week (13.125 x 8.875).  I love the idea of revealing the pattern as you serve your dish.  If they made a wall-hanging or rug in the same design I’d be all over it.

2.  A cheese board from Brooklyn Slate.

The board comes with a soapstone pencil so you can label your offerings; so cool.  These are made right in Red Hook, Brooklyn, a neighborhood that I adore.

3.  The animal busts from Anthropologie.

I’ve seen these in a few (super cool) bars and if I’d known that they were from Anthropologie sooner I would have loved them even more.  The paper mache busts are made with pages from French books and come in zebra, elephant, rhino, goat, and antelope in addition to giraffe.  I think they would be exactly perfect on the walls of our future study!

4.  The city bike from C. Wonder.

$249 ($349 with shipping) for a bike actually sounds doable!  I’ve been wanting a bike for ages and this super classy guy is rocking a leather seat and handlebars.  Once I save up my pennies for the next century, all I’ll have to decide is if I want navy or fuchsia.

5.  The wicker basket from C. Wonder.

For my bike, duh.  If I ever do own a bike it will be my #1 source of transportation, so I’ll need a place to put my stuff.

What are you coveting this week?

  1. Pink glittery TOMS. So pretty, so impractical. Sigh. I love those animal busts too! I actually made a deer head for my dad for Christmas, and I used an old French dictionary for the papier mache, in an attempt to be classy and anthropologie-like. 🙂
