UNICORN HORN, ANYONE?

I don’t think there’s anything that I can say that is better than the picture. A picture says a thousand words and all that. You can buy this!

A LIFETIME OF POLKADOTS

I was in Palm Springs last month and came across the Louis Vuitton store that had a window display by Yayoi Kusama, the Japanese artist who is obsessed with polkadots, repeating patterns, and intense colors. Here’s an example of the display with Yayoi Kusama in the middle (can you believe she’s in her 80’s?):

Unfortunately I can’t afford anything from the collaboration line between Vuitton and Kusama. I just wish I could have some of those polkadot tentacles from the window display!

Here is a retrospective video from the Tate museum that shows highlights from her work:

I NEED THE LITTERFISH!!

I NEED THIS! It is so cool. I think I want the glossy white model but it’s way more expensive. If I have to get one of the cheaper models I guess I’d get the orange one. Here’s the story behind the Litterfish. And you can pre-order your own right here. It would be really cool if they make one in the future that looks like a shark!

DAMN YOU CRATE AND BARREL

Do I need these things? No. Do I want them because they’re cute and yellow? Hell yes!

5-cup coffee maker for $130

Espresso maker for $300

A two-slice toaster for $100!! That's $50 a slice! It better be damn good toast.

PRESENTS FOR HANUKKAH

I haven’t given my Hubby is Hanukkah present yet, but he’s at work and probably won’t look at this until after he opens the present, so it’s safe to post it now.

 

I hope it will make Hubby smile. Plus I got one for me, because they were on sale if you bought two. I don’t usually like pink, but I decided to buy it anyway.

MY PERSONAL CUP OF COFFEE

I’m at home along a lot and sometimes I want a cup of coffee, but I don’t want to use my french press because it’s annoying to clean and I have to make a full pot of it (32oz) for it to come out well. So I decided I want a “coffee dripper” for Hanukkah. It makes one or two cups, and it’s easy to clean. There are several companies that make it but Hario is nice, simple, and inexpensive. You just fit it on top of your coffee mug, put a filter in the top, fill it with a few spoonfuls of grounds, and poor hot water over it. Perfect!

GIFTS TO HELP YOU STAY WARM

There are some really cute gloves and things out this season. I love these super long fingerless gloves at Anthropologie:

And here are some naughty mittens from Urban Outfitters:

 

 

And here’s a pair of beautiful merino/cashmere/mohair long fingerless gloves. I’d love these in turquoise and gray!
