Love these home-dyed yarn colors! (In a perfect world, the blues might be a teeny bit grayer, though…) Really fantastic for fall.

World Market sells this cast iron doorstop as a squirrel…
…but to me it’s clearly a chipmunk. (Chippies hold their tails straight & low to the ground, while squirrels hold ’em curved & high. Although the tail does look thicker than a typical chipmunk tail. Ohwell.)
Darn, does it have to be out of stock online. It’s so cute. 🙂

This Kim Parker Provence Garden 16-piece set is available from Macy’s for a limited time.

This wallpaper makes my mouth water:
What’s not to love – my favorite blue combined with a watercolor-like effect. 🙂
And why does it make my mouth water? As us Scandinavians know well, this kind of diamond pattern in black & white is often used in salmiakki (salt liquorice) packaging, like this one below:
Curses! Now I’m craving a particular, chewy Halva salmiakki. Or super salmiakki by Fazer. Mmm…. Salmiakki is definitely one of those tastes of home that you can’t get in the States. Or if you can, it’s not the particular type you want at the moment, or you have to pay an arm and a leg for it. Gnnnh. Ohwell.
