kitchen of the day

i'm not seeing too many mind blowing kitchens these days. 

everything just looks the same.

white on white. or white uppers, dark lowers. subway-dark grout. factory lighting. brass fixtures. leather strap handles. kilim rug. 

it makes me want to bite my pillow. 

a sweet christmas lineup

i guess this is my version of a gift guide?

i'm no authority on what anyone else wants (although i could do a pretty legit gift guide for your favorite home cook). 

this gift guide is for me. it's what i wish were under the tree for me christmas morning. 

i'll probably get some socks and an orange but it's about giving anyway, right?

 

1. anna spiro's first book is like a wonka golden ticket. furbish is the only distributer in the states and they are sold out. 2. this vetiver tassel would go in the bathroom. i think you know why. 3. i always need purple shampoo to keep my blonde hair looking like pale strands of silk rather than a corn broom. 4. i don't think there's a prettier mug for your coffee anywhere. 5. if i were to start a collection french enamel canisters might be it. these red and blue canisters are different from the usual blue and white. 6. i keep a cosmetics bag on my bathroom counter for my diabetic supplies (buzz kill sorry) and i need a new one. this black monogrammed canvas bag would be just right. 7. le labo fleur d'oranger smells like summer. i'd like to smell like summer. 8. i drink tea every day so bellocq teas in their gorgeous yellow tins would be a great gift for me (or any tea drinker in your life). i'd like the hammeau tea for starters. 9. still itching to try this rose hair masque. 10. i could destroy this card in about 4 seconds at dean and deluca. 11. one day i will have a nice camera and i will take up photography. i have a little cindy sherman in me i'm sure of it. 12. just a pretty soup tureen that i would totally have a soup party for.  

need more gift guide? this is a fun gift guide. i would like to add that pink beanie to my guide.
