Things I like, V.12 (Birthday Wish List Edition)

My birthday is less than two weeks away and while I certainly don't need much, it's always fun to round up a few things I've been ogling (several of these items have been on my list for months; # 2, 3, & 6 were even blogged about previously).

1). I would love to add to my Le Creuset collection. Currently I own one "mini oval coquette" (essentially, a lidded ramekin). This 12-piece bakeware set from Williams Sonoma is both beautiful and functional. $199

2). I've been wanting this edition of F.Scott Fitzgerald's short stories ever since Penguin Hardback Classics first released it with Coralie Bickford Smith's gorgeous cover design. $16

3). Big plans a brewin' for this oversized Paris Graffiti Kiss art print from The Paris Print Shop. I'm picturing it on display in our bedroom and framed in gold. 16x20 - $75

4). I don't currently have a travel case for my macbook air, but this one from Kate Spade caught my eye. You can't go wrong with black & white polka dots. Classic and fun. $60

5). Last week, both our coffee grinder and Keurig machine broke. I use the Keurig more during the school year when I need something quick in the mornings before work, but now I'm thinking it's time for a fancier upgrade. This cappuccino/espresso maker is (relatively) inexpensive as far as these things go and seems like a nice starter model. $75

6). Ah, the Pendleton Wool Throw. I will own this someday. It's a design staple, and the colors make me so happy. Plus, I know it would get constant use. $138

Thanks for humoring my indulgent little wish list!

  4. What a dreamy list–I always forget how close our birthdays are! My wish list was Kate Spade and pj-dominated–what a fool I was for leaving off kitchenware!

  8. That throw has been on my wishlist too :) Andreas bought me a Nespresso machine for my birthday and I love love love it, which I think they sell in the US too. It uses pods like the keurig, but the coffee quality is amazing and I am partial to any coffee maker that I don't have to clean :)
