stuff i've been obsessing over lately (just a few):
-reading woman: an intimate geography, by natalie angier. i bought it years ago but i'm re-reading it now. she has a rather poetic way of talking about the female body and it's biological, physiological, and psychological inner workings.
-wooden heeled shoes. this one has been going for a while. shoes just seem better when the heel is actually made of wood. seems traditional, earthy. me like.
-gumdrops and spicedrops. seeing the wreaths of such being made around the holidays on the intranets made me covet them badly, and i caved and made petey get some at the store a couple weeks back. mmm, sugary goodness.
-ripple blankets. i'm starting my own, using up yarn from my stash (which is the ultimate inspiration for such a project!), and using this pattern. i made a little swatch, will be getting started on the real thing this week, probably, if i can find the time.
