Stock up

I found this great shop in Sonoma. It has a punny name, and I hate those, but the store itself is pretty full of covetable stuff.

There are a lot of retro fifties items -- I was there with my mother, who grew up then, and we had fun. But there are also lots of the kind of thing I always like (bags, things with letters on them, stuff referencing coffee -- or all three).

Butter side up

The other day I got this fantastic ceramic egg tray, to keep eggs in. I just put it in the fridge, but at least when I open my fridge I see it.

I can't find it online, but I did find this "ceramic tupperware" butter dish. No word on if the top has a plastic seal or if if it's all ceramic.

Cold air

My mother has a great old fridge -- but it's old. Rusty, damp and dripping. She needs a new one. One like this:

That's a Pastense fridge.

This is a Big Chill

Not sure about the name of this one.

Northstar has the freezer on the bottom, always a good thing.

Unfortunately, all of these are thousands of dollars...

I'm in charge

I got a covetable new pin for the lapel of my peacoat.

There are other ones, like Bride and Best Friend -- but clearly Head Girl is the best.

TV on the internet

I totally covet this absolutely brilliant night light. I mean, it's a TV and a flying saucer and a night light and it's purple and it's from Etsy...what more could you want???

Other covetables

So when you type "covetable" into Google, you get a bunch of stuff -- many online dictionaries, but also a fairly oddball collection of things. (This obviously changes as the bots go by.) Nike riding boots! China cabinets!

You also learn there are no anagrams for "covetable."



Sparkability has wall decals on sale -- 15% with a code I can give you if you want. It's funny, I so much love these things but don't have a one up in my own home. Maybe I should remedy that...these are my favorite, by the way.

Cherry season

The owner of Skyn sent me a link to her site -- I like this laptop skin a lot. It would work best on a light-colored laptop like the one in the picture, I think.

Check baby out

Greg at Daddytypes posted about this baby monitor...with his usual erudition he went into the designer and the auction price and all that, but I just stared at the screen and coveted. I'm such a philistine. But seriously, could a baby monitor look better?

I mean, compare this to this!

Nerd patrol

The fantastic, covetable robots at Nerdbots are so sweet I can't stop thinking about them.

They're decently priced, but still certainly something to save up for.

Via io9.

In joke

Beautiful, no?

(And weren't these guys in Helvetica?)

I should have taken a picture because I can't find it online, but the Mammut series at IKEA -- otherwise known as the Toontown stuff -- has a crib! In pink or blue, which is lame. But still, there is something appealing about the solid/puffy look.
