A cold-brew coffee maker that has a lovely mad scientist sort of look to it. I like it.
Also a really really awesome lamp.
Going to the casino tonight. I only go there because they make the best sandwiches which are coupled with a side of cornichons and pickled pearl onions. I think cornichons have become my preferred pickle of choice.. The taste is a very savory, not too sour with just the tiniest hint of sweetness. Very very fond of them.
The Kitchn is a beautiful website as well, I've had a ton of fun on it.
I've been thinking a lot about how to outfit my house.. It seems like I am so in love with different decor and styles that I end up wanting ALL the things. But this may also be a perfect opportunity for me to create some separation of space via different decor in different aspects of the house.
Steam punk and gothic, pagan decor
My bedding area a bit bohemian and inviting with different cloths and hangings along the wall.. Something very comforting and inviting.
My desk could transition the bohemian influence with some steam-punk accessories like a gothic lamp.
My kitchen something hedgewitch like.. bottles hanging everywhere, herbs drying, a cauldron maybe.
My living room very japanese-influenced, with the kotatsu coffee table, some paper lanterns for the lighting, and such things as I've collected over the years.
The ceiling of my entire house is going to be a hanging array of decor--a few small trinkets to break it up, and a couple edison chandeliers and hanging hand-blown glass balls that I can collect over time. Something to make the ceiling more interesting and draw the eye up--and hopefully make the place seem bigger and taller than it is, though in truth it will be quite tall.
The bathroom something very modern, with clean lines and comfort coming mainly from soft-looking linen tile.
The porch area will be more heavily decorated than the rest of the house--I'd like an inviting, unique place to sit outside and enjoy..
