Things I Like But Probably Won’t Buy For The House

I’m sad that for whatever reasons I won’t be buying these items….most likely because they are out of my budget.

Woodstation weather display – is this not the coolest clock ever? a motion sensor detects when you are near and lights up….otherwise it looks like a modern wooden sculpture. I don’t know how the LEDs show through the wood like that but I am loving the weather indicators too. So cute!

Parson’s desk from West Elm – These beautiful desks come in all different colors and have been featured all over design blogs. I’m smitten and REALLY want two of these for our office but at $300/desk, I can’t justify getting it. Do you think a cheap ikea one will suffice?? hehe

iPad – I know…the iPad was a bit underwhelming but if I had some extra money to spare, I wouldn’t mind having one of these in my living room. You know if you were over at our house lounging around you’d use it too! It’s a giant iPhone…well…I love my iPhone!

Ketchup pillow – How funny is this pillow! She even has mustard, soy sauce, and various other food and geeky pillows. But totally doesn’t match the decor of our house.

Paper pot – who knew I would ever covet a tissue paper box but I doooooo

AHH…wish i was rich :(

Can someone explain to me how the weather clock works? Not the fact that its wood, I mean how does it know the weather? Is it just like, guessing by taking temp humidity readings or what? Its not like its hooked up to the internets. I call….shenanigans?
