So whilst browsing one of my current favourite sites Kaboodle I realise that people in the U.S. have access to some really gorgeous stuff that I haven't been able to find over here or if they do ship I am slightly concerned about getting hit with excessive customs charges. Unfair!
Kaboodle is a great site where you can make wishlists, shopping lists etc and send them to people. You can also browse other users lists for inspiration. I have used Kaboodle this year for my Christmas list and sent it to Himself (I am not usually that forward, but he did ask!).
I know have a list of all things lovely that I really want but can't have because they are across the pond and I will share a few of them here with you.
So first up, this really cute mushroom kitchen timer from Fred Flare. It seems truly wrong that I can't provide this little fella with a home in my new kitchen.
Carrying on with a slight mushroom theme, I love this mushroom soap dispenser. I have no idea where I would use it, perhaps in the playroom, but who cares - it's so sweet and has the same face as the little timer above! It's $15.00 and available from Doe, Sanfrancisco.
Now, this is a novel idea and I haven't seen anything like it in the U.K, but someone might prove me wrong! It's from The Happy Burping Company and is called a "Restaurant Saver". It's basically a pouch that you carry around with you that has some paper, crayons and scissors in it. Perfect for all those melt-down moments at the dinner table!
Next up is these Ice Kabobs from Perpetual Kid. Just what is a kabob anyhow? I am presuming it is what we call a kebab but maybe someone can enlighten me! Great ice sticks that could also be used as stirrers.
And that's just the tip of the iceberg! There are many more American stores that I love and that I am unable to get my sticky mitts on their wares. I am thinking of starting up an email campaign against them to persuade them to ship to England, starting with Anthropologie.....
