Staring at: Flower Garden Print

This Flower Garden Print from Jenean's Etsy shop looks like one of those Magic Eye pictures; if you stare at the flowers long enough, you start seeing faces and stuff.

Loving: Hoodies Salt and Pepper Shakers

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.

Staring at: Meadow Large Flat Print

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.

Loving: MOMA Ornaments

I love these glass Christmas tree ornaments from the MOMA store.  They're just sparkly enough to really reflect the tree lights perfectly, but not too garish.

Sitting on: Pyramid Chair

This Pyramid Chair from Feel More Human looks insanely comfy.  I think this is the kind of chair that I would need to have when I'm working, not that a lot of work would get done, but I'd be really relaxed.

Walking on: Vintage Belt Floor Mat

I love the rich colors of this Vintage Belt Floor Mat from Branch.  The striped and worn belts look like wood flooring, but the belt notches and sewn details give it a little extra something.

Loving: Skram Bureau

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.

Loving: Rosewood Twist Bracelet

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.

Sniffing: Smoke House Incense Burner

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.

Staring at: Matte Stephens Krasner Prints

These Kitty and Duke of NY prints from Matte Stephens Krasner at Velocity Art and Design are really quirky and fun.  I love the rich colors and the retro look.

Loving: Piasa Room Divider

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.

Loving: Apoll Tabletop Fireplace

The Apoll Tabletop Fireplace from Unica Home might be a little bit on the expensive side, but it's so cool.  It would be great to use at dinner instead of regular candles.  I wonder if you could use them to roast marshmallows.

Sitting on: Grasshopper Chair

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.

Bathing in: Ios Bath Tub

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.

Loving: Danish Modern Vikings

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.

Sleeping on: Furniturea Daybed

This daybed from Furniturea would be a great pop of color in a room.  Plus it comes in tons of different colors so it will match any decor.

Loving: Eva Solo Bird Feeder

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.

Staring at: Forest Flowers Print

I love the rich teal background of this Forest Flowers print by Redbean Design at Feel More Human.  And the white silhouette is really delicate.

Drinking from: Just Trees Mugs

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.

Sitting at: Picnik

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.

Sticking: Origami Sticky Pads

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.

Loving: Bird on a Tree

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.
