I Want This


My wishlist is always longer than it really needs to be, but these are the top items I’d really like to have right now:

1. A new sofa. We’ve been dragging around an IKEA sectional for 5 moves now, and it’s shot. The shape of it is also all wrong for the long, narrow living room in our house. I want the new sofa to be upholstered (or slipcovered) in linen, well-built, leggy, and comfortable. (contender 1, contender 2)

2. A new digital camera. Mine is just too heavy to take with me all the time, and lately it hasn’t been focusing very well. I hate researching these kinds of things, though.

3. Good boots. Something than can take me through fall, winter, and spring, and that will go with everything. (contender 1, contender 2)

I’d also really like to get a good night’s sleep, but I won’t officially put that on my wish list. I’d rather be run-down, haggard and dead tired on a fab new sofa than be refreshed and lying (uncomfortably) on our current one. Boo.

p.s. Also, Swedish pigs at happysilly. Perfect! (via Smosch)

    I’d love to see a spoon-collection by you. Didn’t think I had any spoons either, but found a few.

    I just stumbled across your site. I recently bought the Sony DSC T-100 in red. It’s 8.1mp and it’s tiny enough to carry around in my bag, so it pretty much goes everywhere that I go. You can see some of the photos I’ve taken with it here if your interested: http://www.flickr.com/photos/unremembered/

    I like boots #2! I haven’t been able to find a pair of boots I like in 10 years!

    We’re in love with our Room and Board Lenox sofa: http://www.roomandboard.com/rnb/product.do?method=get&id=319319&coll=90702204&cat=27
