These Hoodies salt and pepper shakers from Vitamin are just too cute. The salt one just looks like he's hanging out, but pepper clearly just saw a ghost. And they're hunched over like they're definitely up to no good.

This Meadow Print from Design Public is supposed to be for a nursery, but I think it would be really nice anywhere in the house. I love all the little details in it, like the bees buzzing around the flowers and the brown bunnies in the grass.

I love the simple exterior of this bureau from Skram, and the chocolatey color is beautiful. The drawers are in three different depths so you can find a place for everything. The bottom is really interesting too, it almost looks like it's floating.

This Rosewood Twist Bracelet from The Curiosity Shoppe is the perfect thing to wear to a holiday party. It's pretty unique, so you know you'll be the only one with it, and the grain of the wood is absolutely beautiful. And it can be worn dressed up or down, so it'll go with almost any outfit.

This Smoke House Incense Burner from Emmo Home is a really cute way to have incense around the house, but to hide the piles of ash after you finish burning it. I think the only way it could be better is if it had a little chimney on top.

I love the wavy look of this Piasa Room Divider from Branch. It's made of all sustainable materials, from the harvested wood planks to the cotton rope that holds them together. Plus, it lets light though in a really interesting pattern, while still keeping everything private.

There are so many reasons why I love this Grasshopper Chair from Modernica. It looks like it would be so comfy to lean back and relax in, like it would just contour right around your back. And the crazy bent arms and legs are really interesting.

This Ios tub from Victoria and Albert Baths is really sleek. All of the controls are housed separately from the tub, so you don't have to worry about leaning back and having to get comfy with a faucet sticking in your back. And it looks really deep, so you can fill it up and relax.

I love these quirky little Danish-Modern Viking figurines from Three Potato Four's Shop. They're made out of different types of wood, so they almost look like something an adult could have around the house. Plus, the expression on the tall guy's face is priceless.

We used to have a couple bird feeders around the yard growing up. It was fun to see what birds came, look at all their different colors, and some of them would provide some comic relief. These Eva Solo Bird Feeders from Feel More Human would be fun to fill with different colored seeds and hang in a row outside a window.

I love the simplicity of all-white dishes, especially since you can keep changing the colors of your kitchen or dining room and not worry about the neon yellow clashing with the forest green dishes. But these Just Trees mugs from mepottery's Etsy shop have a little hidden surprise, chocolaty brown trees drawn on the inside, perfect for drinking hot cocoa on a cold day.

Of course it's way too cold to have a picnic, but if I could have one last meal outside this year it would be on Picnik by Wynants & Lust at Unica Home. It really only seats two, but you can push more together if you have more people over, and they look like they're stackable.

At work I use about a case of post its a day, but they just end up getting thrown out once the note is irrelevant. If I had these Origami Sticky Pads from Suck UK, I could both kill time, and make my desk a sculpture garden of yellow paper.

The roughness of the trunk in this ceramic Bird on a Tree Vessel from Three Potato Four's Shop is unique enough to make this a must have vase. The bird perching on the top just makes it even more adorable when it's poking out between a bunch of flowers.
