Blogger's Favorites – Design Crush


I seem to have a bit of list mania. It was so fun working with all those amazing ladies on the “blogger’s favorites” series that I’ve decided to make the lists a regular Friday morning feature.

First up is Kelly from Design Crush. Kelly always, always features something that I end up obsessing over for days on her witty, expertly edited blog. + (and this is a huge +) her “daily eat” feature is completely drool-worthy.

Herewith Kelly’s Favorites. Enjoy…

  1. Forget Me Knot Ring -- This is one of those things that’s been on my Wish List forever and a day, but just doesn’t seem like something you should buy yourself. It should be given to you by a best friend or special someone.
  2. Leather-bound Merriam-Webster Dictionary -- I’ve been craving this dictionary forever it seems. The leather binding makes me feel like I’ve stepped into a literature novel!
  3. Amber Alexander Blueberries Print -- Ever since I saw this print by artist Amber Alexander I’ve been obsessed. It just speaks to me - and who doesn’t love that feeling? Those are the sorts of things I want to surround myself with in my home.
  4. Double Top Bistro Table -- I’m in love with the idea of turning one of these sweet bistro tables into a foyer bar. “Welcome to my abode. Care for a cocktail?”
  5. Pegasus Kitchen Faucet with Spring Spout -- The kitchen in my house has a great double-sided stainless steel sink. With a faucet that’s so short I can barely get a saucepan under to fill with water. This faucet with spring spout has the functionality of faucet and sprayer in one.
  6. Holga Starter Kit -- I own quite a few cameras an old Minolta manual shot (my Dad’s!), a quad-shot and a sweet digital among them. But there’s just something about a camera that only has one function – no zoom, no filters – and is pure camera.
  7. French Bulldog -- Until I get a fence and a little more moola, this is about as close as I get to owning a Frenchie. But oh, how I want one!
  8. Diorshow Mascara -- The hunt for the perfect mascara – namely one that is volumizing and doesn’t clump – is a never-ending battle for this gal. I’ve heard so many good things about this one by Dior that I’m dying to try it out.
  9. Organic Cotton Pin-tuck Duvet Cover + Shams -- I love a bedroom with crisp, white linens. The pin-tucks in these duvet and sham covers give something decidedly plain that extra little kick that I look for.

Frenchie's are the BEST. I've had boston's as well and a pug + many other mutts but I have to be honest and say that the Frenchie is the best breed yet {mine is 4 now}. I will only have Frenchie's from now on and I want one in every color!!!!

Smeagol loves that his photo in his swell Puppia harness made your list! Forgive the blatant sales pitch, but you can order one of those harnesses from our website shopping mall and benefit French bulldog rescue:http://frenchbulldogrescue.org/htdocs/mallclothes.html#puppia And when the time comes to make your Frenchie wish come true, check out our list of available frogdogs just looking for a fenced yard and a fashionable home and a devoted family: www.frenchbulldogrescue.org.

Thanks again for using our boy Smeagol as your dream dog!

Sincerely,
FP

I really am enjoying the list column. It's so fascinating to see all the things that move people in their daily lives.

That said, I found it a little odd that Kelly doesn't actually have/own/live with any of the 'favorite' things on her list. Does she not like any of the things she does have? And what are the odds she will still like these things once she gets them?

As a 'wish list' though, it's an interesting selection.

I think the forget me knot ring could be something you could buy for yourself - in fact, I'm setting aside some money for it! I decided that there are a lot of things I want to remind myself of - where I've come from, and who I want to be - and that's my symbolism on the ring!

(because all my "helpful" tips to friends didn't end up panning out!)
