a wish list:

My mom gets more catalogs delivered to her house than anyone in the world. (Seriously.) Whenever I go home, I lug a giant stack of them over to the armchair and dog-ear page after page... The thing is, even though I won't actually buy 99% of the items, I find comfort in the perusing alone. Yep. With each folded page, I become more and more giddy, like it's Christmas morning or something.

Uncommon Goods is one of my favorites--and luckily, it's the 21st century, which means catalogs also have websites and I can share with you some of my favorite recent finds...

This oh-so-cool vintage viewfinder clock:
These simple but lovely birds on a wire prints:
This outdoorsy chic cedar lamp base:
This super cute postcard mug:
This wow-do-I-need-this outline vase:
And these living-with-a-guy-friendly slate coasters:
Tell me: do you have a favorite catalog?

I love looking at L.L. Bean Christmas catalogs. The clothes (which I never buy either) look SO cozy and warm. I love the setting of the shoots...winter cabins, ranch-style shoots, winter wonderland :) I would love waking up wrapped in those country-looking flannel sheets on Christmas morning. Plus, they always have golden retrievers in their magazines and I LOVE goldens :) Please check out my blog!

Oh, THANK YOU, Laura!! :) I haven't even seen this catalog before, but now I think I'll be checking it out often!!
The only ones I get and enjoy reading still are Pottery Barn, Anthropologie, and J. Crew :)

love the postcard mugs! I love the Pottery Barn catalogs for decorating ideas, the Wireless catalog for gift ideas, and the Athleta catalog for bum-around/exercise clothes. If there was a catalog for books, I'd be all over it. :)
