So, the downside of Christmas is that shopping for other people usually gets me in a..well, shopp-y mood. With the economy what it is at the moment, that's never a good thing. I try to placate my urge to shop by buying little, practical things that I can consider to be an investment down the road. (For example, I've stocked up on warm winter leggings and boot socks from Kohl's.)
I'd really like a new winter coat, but I am so endlessly picky that I just can't find one I like enough to commit to. Looks like it's sweaters for the rest of the season for this girl...
But, without further ado--adorable things I have been lusting over (but will likely not purchase) on Etsy.
this typewriter. As a kid, I learned to type on a typewriter and used to sit there for days just banging out short stories. This one rings my bell far beyond all the other models simply because of its color. LOOK AT THAT COLOR. I am so in love. I keep checking the price to see if it's been reduced. It's just a little too rich for my blood. There are other typewriters going for much cheaper, but I feel like this one is really meant to be mine, and I won't be satisfied with one of any other hue.
this hue! But this one is even MORE expensive (um, five times more expensive?!) and not even an option for me.
I love you, kiss me, I adore you. Adorable (but unfortunately sold out!) coffee spoons. They do have similar items now, though.
this one...but damn, I sure do love this image. I think they should sell the image! (And maybe the girl's dress. I'd buy that, too. Super cute!)
This one is pretty cute, although I would prefer one with easy access, like a snap-on case...
Dr. Who ornaments would, without a doubt, be adorning it!
this little sucker, but I'm holding out hope that my mom might eventually make me one...even though I'm not sure she knows how to.
such as this one would be hard to beat. Little compartments for everything! And I can just fold it up when I'm finished! And maybe my (future) typewriter would even fit inside...
Well, there you have it. The current list of things I'm fancying!
