A vintage fan. Etsy is chocked full of these and for moderate prices too. The vintage aesthetic of the fan will look fantastic in my mis-mashed vintage house (1920's house with a 1950's kitchen with modern updates, there are at least three different types of hardware in my kitchen...). My only stipulation is that it works because fans actually serve a purpose where I live.
Jewelry. There is something about handmade jewelry that I can't explain. It's like wearing art. I really love the polymer clay/metal pieces from Jennifer at amerrymishap. I wish I could buy five of those bracelets to layer like in the picture below, I LOVE the gold spikes! I think I might instead go for the neon green/gold earrings, since I'm more of an earring person anyway. Speaking of earrings and gold, I love these faceted studs, the perfect simplicity earring. Friendship bracelets are the hot new thing, I just made a few of my own the other day, layering is key. This blue and yellow bracelet is sunshine on your wrist. I seem to like bright colors contrasted with dainty metals; loving this ULTRA-dainty monogram bracelet. (Perfect bridesmaids gifts, ladies!)
Cashmere undies. I have a slight obsession with cashmere*. These undies from Sartoria look AMAZING. Luckily, I'm not in a hurry to get cashmere undies for the summer but I certainly want some for winter. I love to cozy up under my down comforter in nothing but skivvies and an over-sized cashmere sweater so double the cashmere = double the coziness!
Atomic coffee ware. This is sort of a weird term but I'm referring to a coffee pot and/or coffee accessories made with reflective chrome, glass and/or teak. I especially like this scientific look of this creamer/sugar set from Jess at upcountryvintage but the thought of using a tea candle to keep my coffee warm (while I sit in my sunroom of course) is very appealing as show in this tall coffee pot with warming tray from Maria at trappedintheatticvintage.
Cute animals. I am such an animal lover so I love animal presence in my life such a this unbelievable fox pouch, I love the fluffy tail! I've raved about everyeskimo before but I want one of her amazing hand crafty animals complete with back story, how charming. I don't remember how I found this little guy but there is no way I could turn down an "action bunny with gold pants." Also by Jen at corduroy is this Zap the Bad Things mug, perfect for Monday mornings I would wager. I have been looking for a decorative pillow for my queen size bed for a long time, I love the idea of a black and white animal photo pillow. It's like a grown up version of a stuffed animal.* Ronda of intheseam has the right idea with these pillows, although the idea of using a photo of one of my pets for the pillow is a little disconcerting for some reason.
Graphic typefaced items. There is nothing like Helvetica, if I could I would have all my food storage be glass and labeled with black Helvetica bold type. My roommate loves entertaining and would go crazy if I showed up at the house with this ice bucket. Roomservice vintage is offering this awesome airtight coffee canister and vintage by Luola offers this (sadly mate-less) aptly labeled salt shaker (I love that that "a" is lowercase). I love this cheeky pillow by Cindy at Yellow Bug Boutique but as sad as this may seem it just seems a little too negative for my bed (slash how weird of a thing to think about in bed...uh). I like the concept though!
*fun fact, all of my cashmere is second hand.
*I would never turn down a stuffed animal, I see little girls walking past my coffee cart at the Aquarium with pink stuffed sea otters and for a split second I think of bolting to the gift shop to get one for myself
