I would totally bring this Urban Creature Floral Kitchen Timer from Vitamin Living to a designer and ask them to make me a kitchen to match. It's so odd but pretty at the same time; a decoration that also serves a purpose.

I love all the cute little details in this Cuckoo Clock from Decoylab at Fawn & Forest. It has everything that a traditional cuckoo clock should have, like the dangling weights and cute forest animals, but by making it a print with a clock built in, it's like a piece of modern art to hang on your wall that also happens to tells time.

I love how this Farm Wing Settee from Hickory Chair looks like something that would have been handed down in a family or found forgotten in a grandmother's attic. I would curl up on this with quilt and a book in the middle of winter.

This Newton cream and sugar dish in gold from Tonfisk Design at the Finnish Design Shop is really pretty and really cool. You put the cream in the bottom and sugar in the dish on top and when you pour the cream out, the sugar dish on top tilts so the sugar doesn't go everywhere. And it's lined with gold which makes the simple white dish really luxe.

Whenever I take the little man out now I usually grab one of his fleece blankets and tuck it into his carseat or stroller. Of course, five minutes later he's either pushed or kicked it down or one of the corners is dragging on the ground. So now I really want this cute Bundle Bag from DwellStudio at Design Public. All of the seat straps go right through the back, so you can still secure the baby like normal. And it comes in some really cute prints, like this travel one that's perfect for a little man on the go.

I've decided that since I'm staying at home and doing the whole Mom thing, I need to really do the domestic thing to the extreme. Of course, this means having decorative towels like this "Kitchen" Tea Towel from Branch around the kitchen. I completely remember that when I was a kid, whenever you dried your hands, it was on the towel draped over the stove handle. So I have to start my towel collection soon.

I think I need to put one of these Cubby Organizer Wall Shelves from Smart Furniture into every room in my house. There's always little things that you lose: the remote in the living room, glasses in the bedroom, cell phone everywhere...

I love that there's so much detail in this print of Brooklyn, New York, from Andy Pratt Design at Supermarket HQ. It's a really intricate drawing, but since it's all done in one color it has a great simplicity to it. Plus, I love anything in that olive-y color.

One of the really creepy things about cribs is that they almost always look like little baby jails because of the bars. Plus, between the bumper and the bars, you really can't see the baby unless you go right up to the edge. This Roh Crib from 2Modern looks like it could solve both those problems with it's really slick acrylic front. Then when the baby grows out of it, it looks like it could transition to a bed or a really cute loveseat.

I've loved these Uglydolls for a while now. I even had an Uglydoll-themed baby shower, and my boy's upstairs sleeping with one now. So for them to come out with an action figure from the MoMA Store is awesome. I would love to have one of these sitting at my sewing desk so that when I get too frustrated with a seam or something, I can just glance at it and giggle.

I really need this Ideaco Coin Bank from Emmo Home. I actually don't spend my spare change, I just toss it all in a cup and then splurge on something when the cup gets full, but that cup isn't very attractive. This bank has a really wide slot so you can easily just throw all your spare change in it. Plus, you can toss a few dollars in there too.
