this year i feel a bit differently. i don't know if its just been a kind of tough year and i feel like i want something just for me, or if our house finally looks like it belongs in an IKEA catalog, but this year i made a little list. it's nothing wild or crazy, but i thought i would share a couple things that are, in my mind, swoon worthy.
ONE: madewell ribbed cardigan – I have been searching for the perfect cream coloured cardigan to get through the chilly winter months, and this one is most definitely it.
TWO: lap-held weaving loom - i took a wonderful tapestry making class last winter, and have really fallen in love with weaving ever since. this little loom looks like it might be a bit more user friendly than the cardboard versions i have improvised with.
THREE: gold stacking ring - i have wanted a simple gold band to wear with my wedding and engagement ring since this summer- something thin and beautiful to remind me of roo when i look down and see it. this one is perhaps a bit more than i really would ever need from a ring (with a price tag to match), but hey- they don't call it a wish list for nothing. ;)
FOUR: humble hilo bag - i think these handmade bags are so beautiful. and something i can see myself using for many many years to come. plus, humble hilo is doing some wonderful things, with a portion of every sale going toward supporting women and children in developing countries.
FIVE: kobenstyle mug - i guess technically this one is not just for me, but i would really like some new, beautiful mugs. the ones we use most have been with us for almost 10 years, and for someone who loves dishes as much as i do, thats an incredibly long time.
SIX: fig & jasmine candle - i love the look of these beautiful candles. i love the scent of jasmine even more. match made in heaven
