Mix tape memories

This is not actually the cassette tape necklace I want to blog, but it's similar. I saw this young woman wearing a cassette charm necklace (it also had a tiny pink heart). I told her I liked it and she said that she was into old school music. And I nodded and walked away and then I realized that she was too young to ever have even owned tapes. And I felt old.

Groove is on your plate, baby

Look at the brilliance of Grooveware. I am stunned.
The whole site is covetable, really. I love the time table, too.

My hood

I love Dovetail's Neighborhood series.

Square chair

I like this chair a lot. Pink and brown for me, or maybe turquoise and brown.

(It's for kids. Via Cool Mom Picks.)

Shoe me

Neat parrot print on these Keds, by Eleanor Grosch. And I like the little strappies. But even better would be her puffin logo. I love puffins.

I need a new pair of pants, but everything is all gaucho or wide-leg, or silly made up J.Crew/Banana Republic fits. I like wide-leg, but they aren't for me. I'm sure you're all sick of low-ride bootleg, but I'm sorry, those pants were created for me and I love them. (I thought about going skinny, but two things stop me. One, I think they might be the thing that in ten years you are embarrassed to have worn. Two, they look dorky with flats.)


Hello, my name is...

I have read that this is not such great wine, but I don't care. The label is fantastic. I've also seen Chardonnay. (Thank you, my neighborhood TJs.)

I'm a little teapot

OK, this is extremely nice-looking. I haven't seen it in person yet, but I might go to That Store on Sunday and I will definitely check it out. Apparently it also comes in black, but that just doesn't seem quite right.


Rocket to the moon

Rocket Dog shoes are really speaking to my inner seven-year-old right now.

Shopping in the rain

You may have noticed that I'm not averse to Ye Olde Big Boxxe or Ye Olde Cheape Shoppe. Truth to tell, I do believe they (a) stifle creative expression and (b) get us addicted to cheap, third-world-produced (often but not always a bad thing) products and (c) make shopping areas all the same.

However, I have no money and I like clothes. Until I am famous enough to be given free samples from all the wonderful indie boutiques and designers, I will wear this. (Well, actually, I won't, because I already have a rain coat. But, you know, I would.)

Oh, my. Just the look of the PaPaYa! website makes me start to drool. Some of the designs are a little goofy, but many -- nay, most! -- are totally covetable. They have excellent magnets and cards. Valentine's Day should be so lucky.


Hold me, hold me

I am always losing things...sorry, misplacing them. I need something like this! I like the smooth look, too, but I worry about the fact that it's ceramic. What if it falls off the wall?

If Covetable Ran a Design Challenge...

This would be it.

OK, so here's the thing. I use a Brita water filter pitcher. And it's hideous. They've become more streamlined in recent years, but still.

What I want is a gorgeous glass pitcher that holds a Brita filter. Shouldn't be so hard to do. You'd just have to make sure it held that plastic insert part that the water goes into first. Come on, design community... Come on Brita people. Do something.

Logos I Like

Isn't this a great logo? The way the lines of the H intersect the circle. Great.

(The Hoover was invented by someone named Spangler, by the way. Hoover just sold the thing.)

Through the eye of a needle

Look at this fantastic needle case! I saw it on the Craft Magazine blog, and it's by The Small Object.

Urban meals

Indie shoppers would frown, but I like these plates from Urban Outfitters. Real plates, not even melamine!
