What am I crushin' on now?

I'm thinking it's time to go window shopping and share some of my current crushes.

I ran across this Ceramic Squirrel Speaker from West Elm by accident but boy am I glad I did!  I think there is nothing better than turning a squirrel that has an audio cord coming out of it's rump into a speaker!


The Company Store has this adorable postmark looking Rubber Molded Doormat that says Welcome as you enter and Goodbye as you leave.  Or you could flip it around to tell solicitors goodbye and welcome people who live there to the outdoors.  Hmm, I kind of like that more.


My obsession with mixing bowls I have no room for continues with these Rhodes Mixing Bowls from Pottery Barn.  They make me want to whip up cake batter and homemade frosting and go into a sugar coma.


I'm not a country fan but this adorable French Hen bowl from Sur La Table catches my attention every time. I'm thinking some morning oatmeal in this bowl would taste extra comforting.


I did a little fancy Photoshoppin' for this next one from Pier 1.  I don't know why but I kept gravitating toward this peacock serving platter and thought maybe these willow spheres would look pretty in them on our bedroom dresser.  Some of you will like this, some will think I'm high.
What are you crushin' on this week?  Decor?  Food?  Workout?  Vacation spot?

  1. I cannot stop laughing at the squirrel. It's not that there is anything wrong with it, it's just odd to me that someone decided to make a speaker out of something like that.
    Everything looks pretty cool though, if we only had the room for it. You did a good photoshop job on that one photo, I wouldn't have known if you hadn't told me.

    1. They have a bear and some other animal too. You know you want one!

  2. I like the squirrel too. I really like bowls and cups of all kinds. If I had space I'd have like a million bowls and cups of different sizes, shapes and colors. Most would have no purpose but I would like looking at them and all of these would fit right in.

    I'm not really crushing on anything right now. However, if you happen to come across a house-stretcher on your searches please let me know.

    1. Me too! I love looking into my cupboard and seeing multi-colored bowls stacked up. I want a house that has at least 1 or 2 glass door cupboards so I can show 'em off like art! I'll send the house stretcher on to you when I'm done!

    1. You missed the perfect opportunity to say your friend was NUTS about squirrels! Oh wait, maybe I'm the only one that says stuff that corny. :O

  4. I just got the Owl West Elm speaker! (It's the same but just a different animal). It's perfect for my office because I can't play my music too loud in there anyway. It's so cute. I am weirdly obsessed with it.

    1. They just need to make a gopher so I can play Kenny Loggin's "I'm Alright" through it. We have a rather extensive mug collection and only use 20% of them. D'oh

  6. I like your choices! Kinda dorky but I'd like to get a cute little juicer that I can use by hand for fresh oj and stuff. Awesome!

    1. Not dorky at all. Anthropologie has an AWESOME white one that has little flowers carved into it. I think I had it on a former crush list!

  7. I don't think you're high--the peacock bowl and willow spheres were my favorite!

  8. I always think you're high. jk. I just loved how you phrased that!
    I loved the peacock plate the best- I'm not a super kitchen-y person as, at my age, I prefer to spend as little time in there as possible.

    1. You're a brat! :P

      HA! I get it. I haven't grown tired of the kitchen stuff so I tend to gravitate toward that stuff. I think my next crush is going to be beauty related. My favorite hair products, etc.

  9. The doormat reminds me of the one I have on my wishlist...only mine is not so nice. :D http://www.amazon.com/William-F-Kempf-Cocomats-Doormat/dp/B000I1UYXO/ref=sr_1_1?s=lawn-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1359059207&sr=1-1

    I love the squirrel. I pretty much love anything squirrel or owl because we have both in our backyard and they are so much fun to watch. ~Krista

  10. I NEED THAT SQUIRREL! I'm planning on getting this wallpaper for my office and it would match perfectly: http://pinterest.com/pin/46021227412341894/. And I have those willow spheres. The cats think they're toys. :P

  11. When my oldest moved out into her own apartment, I got her a welcome mat that looked very similar, only it said: Hi. I'm Matt. lol It was a big hit with her college friends.
