WO + SF Gimme! Gimme! List

Dressing our homes is just as important as dressing ourselves to connote our personal styles. This week's Gimme! Gimme! list is a collection of items we would love to have for our homes.

Wise Owl Picks

I've actually always wanted to have a tiered serving tray, and this vintage one found on etsy is totally the perfect tray in my opinion. It's neutral enough for any occasion but by no means boring. It's a little out of my price range at $240, but a girl can dream, right?

I don't actually own a Kitchen Aid mixer, but if I ever get married I am TOTALLY putting that on my gift registry! Or I could buy myself one because I am an independent woman with a full time job... Regardless, this is an adorable print to hang in a kitchen and actually comes in a variety of colors! Again, found on etsy. - $11.50
I love the dramatic arc on this Meryl Floor Lamp from Crate and Barrel. Even better, the pole is retractable if you want to tame it down a bit! - $329

I love whimsy and I love pops of color and this tablecloth from the Marimekko shop at Crate and Barrel has both! (price varies by size)

I actually don't have a dedicated alarm clock (I use my phone), but I may have to spring for this Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me! alarm clock found at Uncommon Goods. Not only is that one of my favorite podcasts, but I also can't think of a better voice to wake me up than Carl Kassell's. - $69

Sly Fox Picks

I love eating and serving cheeses. A glass dome like this one is great to keep that cheese fresh and can add a lot to a table when entertaining. $19-$29 Pottery Barn

To go along with the cheese dome, this vintage cheese marker set will help your guests identify what types of cheeses you’ve laid out for their tasting pleasure. $36 –

It’s a dinosaur planter! I think it’s always fun to bring a little kitsch and funkiness into a household. It may seem a little immature, but I think it’s pieces like this that can really set apart your personal style. $15 –

I’ve made Heart Garlands before and it’s a fairly easy project that can really spruce up your house. For spring time, pick some of your favorite bright colors and hang in a window like the above or in a doorway. Hanging individual handmade Hearts is also a cute way to spruce up a room or a light fixture too.

No house is truly complete or ready for entertaining without a stocked bar. Don’t have the money to go out and buy bar equipment? Turn that old bookcase into a Bar! The cost is approximately $60 and well worth it.
