How badly do I want the Penguin Classics hardcover set? Gorgeous, drooling, sputtering, gasping, you name it.
Everyone knows I’m the forever book slut and this is the ultimate book porn. And even though I own most of these books in other editions (multiples, no less), I want this little baby more than anything in the world.
I’m also a sucker for Penguin’s Graphic Classics series. I have a whole pile of those, too. Clearly, Penguin knows how to sell a cover.
Get it for me?
How badly do I want these gorgeous scarves from my favorite shop ModCloth? I think they can be classified as must-haves, for sure, to pump up my generally simple wardrobe.
They are both a reasonable $25. Squeal like a little girl.
Skirts I desperately must have (from ModCloth) for the start of the school year. Perfection in whimsy.
One of my favorite websites of all time: Things Bears Love.
Honestly, it may be the funniest, most splendid thing ever. Not a single one is boring–because, welp, bears love things like overweight hikers, boomboxes (music for the slaughter), girl scouts (easy to infiltrate; free cookies after the mauling), drunks…the list goes on.
You should be visiting this website, like I do, on the reg.
I adore the new “Suggested Shops” feature on Etsy. As an Etsy seller and valued member of “handmade nation”, I firstly like to support other artists, crafters, and thrifters. I buy a lot of accessories, clothes, and kitsch on Etsy.
I do a lot of searches. I favorite tons.
But to now be opened up to a whole bunch of shops I might have missed–or haven’t promoted on the front page–is amazing. And most of the suggestions are really spot on!
I quite adore this gold Holga camera; at only $36 some odd buckaroos, its definitly tempting. Tempting, indeed.
Having never used a Holga camera, I can’t say I’d be any good at snapping with this baby, but I’d love to try, and always adore the effects it can produce when I see friends use it. Though, the whole idea of the Holga toting hipster repulses a bit–apparently, they sell these in shops like Urban Outfitters.
Still, it might be a nice treat this summer.
Have you shot with a Holga? Is it fun? Or too hip hip?
How badly do I want some of these delicious sounding Saipua soaps; at just $8 a pop, there’s amazing scents like “Coffee Mint”, “Mango Butter”, and “Saltwater”.
Plus, the designs on the soap are artwork in and of themselves, Created by a small family business in NY, these are right up Kraftworkin’s ally. Talk about a pleasure to bathe with, methinks.
File Under: Buy me these…
Squeal! How badly do I want the adorable piggie coin purse (at left, “piggy bank” by Keecie, 35 euro/approx. $47) and this deliciously plain and downright functional messenger tote from L.L. Bean (at right, “Sunwashed canvas shoulder bag” in cocoa brown by L.L. Bean, $45)? It looks like the perfect size and color.
Wantsies, wantsies, wantsies.
Definitely check out a whole pile of other yummy items from Keecie. So cute!
File Under: Who’s buying?
How badly do I want one of these adorable Salt Pigs?
Usually, I keep my dish of kosher salt in a little white bowl on my counter top. But this Salt Pig not only is adorable (and helps me to flex my love for all this porcine), it might be a nicer holder than what I’ve got going right now.
Plus, you can scoop them up for a mere $10 or so here.
File Under: Squeal!
I very muchly desire these Bearded Bloke Badges, courtesy of HandmadeRomance.
They are made to order and available for $28 at her etsy shop.
When can I have some?
I absolutely adore this Serif Tote from The Little Factory, which caught my eye at This is Love Forever.
It’s deliciously price at a reasonable $24, and when more come in stock at the end of the month, boy do I wantsies.
There’s nothing like a simple tote to carry around books, knitting projects, and little bits of candy like I do. Buy it for me?
How badly do I want these delicious lace-up Fringe Boots? They are exactly what I’ve been looking for…and at a reasonable $78, I’m having trouble resisting.
The only problem? The boots start at size 6, and even on my best days, it’s a stretch to fit a 5.5, nevermind a whopping 6.
File Under: Taking wagers. In winter, you wear bulky socks, right? Can I pull off a 6 for these bad boys?
