I wwwant that!

Oh the joys of internet commerce. What’s in this week’s “Got to have it, absolutely want it, can’t afford it” pile?

While looking at this, can you imagine why I love it so much? Is it the house sketch? Or the lovely green plant leaves? NOPE! It’s the electric pink and green in the trees and the even more colorful banners. Sign me up. My Love for You was kind enough to share the playful work of Lizzy Janssen, who is on etsy, thank heavens. Go check out her other great work. What a talented lass!

What happens when you follow The Hipster Home on Twitter? THIS apparently. I check out your site and then lust after your wares. A cloud headband? How novel! If ever there’s been a simple, clean design that makes you feel good about the world , this is it. The little details (click through) in the girl and airplane make it sweet and really endearing. If you’re interested in more of her amazing jewelry and products, she’s on etsy and OF COURSE on twitter. She’s also got a great blog, featuring other etsy artists and cool shit, alongside more of her own work.

SWEET HEAVENS I LOVE THE IDEA OF GUMMY BRASS KNUCKLES. I think that about sums it up. Eat Me Daily is to blame for the introduction to Romeing Panda‘s utilitarian approach to gummy bears. Thanks guys!

Finally, I just love the look of the Aomikan. Apartment Therapy’s Kitchn tells me it’s “a green tangerine with orange flesh.” I do not care what it tastes like. I do not care what citrus fruits it’s a combination of. I ADORE the orange insides and the rich green outsides. My breakfast table shall always feel empty with the void of Japanese fruits not carried here in the US. Maybe I’ll just order a food photo of it? Mmmmm, delicious.

That’s it for this week kids! Do you have something you’ve been lusting after but can’t afford? Let’s squeal about it together in the comments.

I wwwant that!

Welcome to this week’s edition of I wwwant that! It’s the one place in which I’ll allow myself to dream of spending a whole savings account on covetable web items. Let’s begin…

The first person responsible for my itchy Add to Basket trigger finger is Joy from Oh Joy! Besides Joy being her first name, her blog was more aptly named for the Oh Joy! reaction evoked when browsing her eye-candy posts. Oh, excuse me. Did that come off too ass-kissy? Add her blog to your RSS and see how long you last with that hard heart of yours. Anyways, she posted some lovely geometric-inspired jewelery that’s not ONLY pretty shapes but is made from laser cut wood. The Harbinger Co. is based out of San Francisco and badass enough to use LASERS on a regular basis. The pieces range from $12-$60 and won’t break the band but these are HARD TIMES people!

A few times over the last couple days, an annoying thing happened. The interweb (like Poppytalk and Apartment Therapy) was enthralled with a new textured Anthropologie couch. Yeah, ok. Nice couch, like I give a shit. Ay but there’s the rub. In said photograph of this couch lays an AMAZING RUG. The bright colors! The nubby bobbles of pompom! The randomized spots of color! I was smitten. The first time I saw it, I thought it wasn’t for sale but by the second time, I was compelled to see if it was something Anthropologie carrier. And they are. Expensively. Their Felt Pixel Rug will set you back $600-$900. Plus shipping. Crying myself a river.

Let’s finish with another website discovery, like last week‘s Jonathan Adler. This one is compliments of Kate from For You, For Me, who tweeted about the recent arrival of some vintage locker baskets from the people of Three Potato Four. “Hmm, what is that?!?” I asked myself. “I’M on the hunt for lockers, maybe they’ll have something cool for our linens!” No dice. HOWEVER, Three Potato Four is a webstore that carries vintage stuff that kicks butt. Go browse already!

Being an under-employed lady of leisure, several things suffer without making bank. Namely, purchasing power. Would I buy any of this if I did have a job? Eh, that’s besides the point because I’m pretty cheap. But please do join me in salivating over these tasty bits of internet commerce.


Let’s start with this old lover, the Jeffrey Campbell Neon Oxfords. Previously sold out, I stumbled upon them again tonight when I mainlined the NASTY GAL newsletter, I mean, their newsletter hit my inbox. Turns out they’re having a big sale! Go git yourself some size 0 vintage garb.

I like funny. I like this. Mr. Cold is a liquid soap dispenser. (GET IT?!?) He would look LOVELY in our bathroom and could grab coffee with our toilet monster. Thanks to Apartment Therapy for the post!

The Cherry Blossom Girl practically lives in her itty bitty heart tights. Too bad the Tabio website has such stark product pictures. I’d recommend checking out The Cherry Blossom Girl’s stylings if you want to see why I think these are super fantastic. Wwwant them. 10 pairs minimum.

For tonight’s totally-want-it-got-to-have-it craft project,  the fine people at The Wurst Gallery are to blame. In their Dishwasher Safe series, “each artist was sent 4 round pieces of paper that they could only use markers on, the pieces of paper were then processed into a 1 of a kind set of 4 plastic plates.” How’d they do that? Makit Plate kits! The finished products are plastic, totally usable and incredibly designed. Lori D made my favorites, but the rest are pretty spectacular as well. By all means, go check them ALL out but you better be pre-resigned to not buy any, because they’re all sold out! Hurrah Wurst.

Finally, I met Jonathan Adler! Hat tip to Making it Lovely since she posted that homeboy started making his lacquer bathroom set in hot pink for Barbie. Or some other nonsense like that. THE POINT IS Mr. Jonathan Adler makes whimsical, humorous, UNORDINARY and deliciously tacky home wares. Sign me up! So you can put all his awesome products in my giant internet shopping cart in the sky. That’s right, I JUST COVETED AN ENTIRE WEBSITE. Also: read the Jonathan Adler Manifesto, it’s a hoot.

Side note: Our library system has his book, My Prescription for Anti-Depressive Living, which I promptly requested and will read. Free works, bitches.
