Lil House has been a very good house this year, minus the whole our-hardwood-floors-downstairs-may-be-buckling thing. But that’s okay (we hope), they’re under warranty. If there was a Santa for homes, we’re pretty sure this is what our house would ask for.
I thought this faucet was the coolest thing ever before we even had the house, when that commercial came out with the song that was stuck in my head for, well, months. Yooooour hands can do so many many thiiiings! Okay here it is…
But we imagined Macky would figure out how to turn it on and flood the house. Fast forward to when we have a house, move in, get a backsplash, pendant lights and…builder grade faucet. We did pay the extra 50 bucks to have the builder install a faucet that requires only 2 holes. So when the backsplash was done, we wanted to get a faucet that required 2 holes, was stainless, had a pull down sprayer and was sleek… no strange braiding or trim around the edges. We went to Home Depot and I was immediately drawn to a particular faucet. Little did I know it was this one. THE FAUCET FROM MY FAVORITE COMMERCIAL! We checked to see if it was made without the touch feature but it’s not. It’s not even a big deal to us now, since Macky doesn’t go on our counters at all ::knock on wood:: I just love the way it looks and it fits the criteria!
2. Nail gun
No that’s not me, but I did a google image search and this picture was too appropriate to pass up. But I do have dreams of installing molding and building things. We got a circular saw for Christmas last year and now we just need a nail gun!
Remember my area rug plea? Well one of you left this link in a comment…
Thank you melarse! I want!
4. A king sized mattress
Okay that’s the world’s largest mattress, but that’s what I would feel like if I had one. It’s just something we keep putting off buying because well, mattresses aren’t cheap.
5. Large White Drum Pendant Light
This is the Large Finley Off-White Pendant light from Crate & Barrel. I’ve loved drum pendants forever, but never knew where to put one. I think I want this for our entryway because, well, why not!
6. Tool bench/storage
As I mentioned earlier, we have a circular saw, but we have no where to use it! And there are tools scattered all over our house…
ps- You have no clue how tempted I was to use this image instead. Google image searches are fun
7. Some Apple Art
Mike is an Apple fanatic (Macky’s full name is Macintosh….) He bought one of these posters years ago and I loved it. And all along he thought I wouldn’t let him hang it up. Psssh he forgets that I am the coolest wife ever It was the Lucy and Desi one and we had it framed, matted and hung in our old office. We’d like to keep it and maybe add to the collection. These are some of my favorite ones (so hard to choose!). Clockwise from top left, Jane Goodall, Ghandi, Jim Henson and John Lennon/Yoko Ono. I love the Apple connection, but I also love the message. Thinking different is something we try to do everyday, almost to a fault. Plus we love these particular people.
8. Snowblower (!!!)
This one is actually quite urgent and probably should have been first. We’ll probably pick one of these bad boys up soon, though the price tag gives me the creeps. Since we’re cheap, the last time we walked into Sears to check them out we left with a shovel. A SHOVEL, not even two. So if it snows tomorrow, only one of us can go dig out our long driveway. We’re very smart.
I have wanted this mirror for years. Many, many years. We had no place for it in the condo, so when we got this house I knew I wanted it. I still want it and I know exactly where it will go in our bedroom. Plus it’s an affordable $99! The problem? It doesn’t fit in our car. I’m sure Santa’s sleigh could accommodate.
10. Custom paintings from Dog House Pet Portraits
I have wanted one (okay 4) of these since I saw that the artist, Kristen, painted Dooce’s dogs. How cute would Macky’s mug look on one of those? We would need 4 of them (Macky, Mowie, Darwin and of course, Sunny) so they would be way too pricey. But if there is a Santa….
