Blog Stats don’t lie. Every week when I feature my “Weekly Covet,” the page views spike. Now, before you go thinking that I’m manipulating y’all by
Bernhardt Market Street Armoire, $3330
posting a daily covet purely for page views, know this: I love “Wanting!” I’m actually dying to do this more often, so here it goes:
I live in a great little home in a great little neighborhood. My house was built in 1925 and boasts sturdy oak floors, leaded glass, hammered metal door knobs and fixtures and more character than you can shake a stick at. However, as anyone who lives in an old home knows, we are seriously lacking a few things such as a double (or triple) car garage, multiple bathrooms on the second floor and probably the most important for a lifelong covet’er of things – closet space.
While our bedrooms are spacious, the master boasts two small glorified coat closets. Not super handy for someone who hasn’t stopped buying or saving shoes since 1992. So my covet du jour is the most beautiful, stunning, gorgeous, amazing piece of furniture. My favorite item is the armoire, just one piece of an exquisite bedroom set and I actually want each and every piece of it!
SOHO Turquoise Tufted Rug, $568
Here we go again… more stuff I want! It’s making me feel so American to want to consume so often. However, I have been living without a rug on the my cold, hard, wooden bedroom floor for 4+ years. I just found this great rug on www.GILT.com and it would be absolutely perfect… if I had an extra $600 to spare.
Hmmm, what jobs pay $600 per hour? Professional Escort? Today Show Host? Arena Football Player? Well, while I’m deciding what my next career is… ponder the wonderful-ness of this rug. I heart this rug.
ok, so I couldn’t wait to feature another covet item… because I WANT a lot of stuff!
A lovely Omaha mom, fan of MOmaha.com and LittleBlackSweats.wordpress.com asked me to post the couch I want for my sunroom (for those of you who have been in my house, that’s DH’s old office!) So here is the cutest sofa of all time and I “mocked” it up at ballarddesigns.com. Now to pick some scratch from my money tree to purchase it!

I have done an awful lot of virtual shopping today and have decided that at least once a week, I will add the “Weekly Covet” item to this blog.
Today’s item, inspired by some red carpet sirens, are neutral colored platform pumps. I am adding my “splurge” and my “save” favorites here.
