I'm so extreme. On the one hand, I'm uber excited about downsizing and decluttering (these thoughts literally kept me up until 4 a.m. last night/this morning). On the other, I find myself trolling various blogs and retail sites finding all kinds of goodies. So, um, for the sake of some Friday fun, voila my wishlist!

Fuji Instax Instant Camera

First read about it here, then found it here whilst perusing Urban last night. Swoon indeed! This darling, DARLING camera is like a petit polaroid. I want!! Now, I know I bought that pink Holga awhile back and have yet to develop any pics, but that's because I need to finish the roll. I started it on my bday at Barton Springs, but want to take it to some fun Austin hotspots before I finish. See? It's not going to waste...

Crate & Barrel Colette Bed

I am so over my Hemnes bed. Unfortunately it was a biatch to assemble, and I've only had it for about 2 years, sooo I won't be getting rid of it anytime soon. But when it does come time for me to buy a new bed, I'd love the Colette Bed. You might be thinking, "wow that's a bit tame for Carolyn's taste," and well, you'd be right. But this bed ain't cheap, and I'd want it to last forever. The classic shape + super fun nailhead trim would be tres chic for decades to come.

Note: I might paint my bed a fun glossy white comme ca. Oh Domino... I miss you.

Taschen's Travel Books
You've probably spotted these babies at Anthropologie. Everytime I see them, I die a little. (Drama queen, much?) Because they ain't cheap (around $50 a pop), and I want all 3!

Paris & London Maps

And speaking of my fave European cities, I've been eyeing these darling Paris & London maps since they hit the world wide web. But again, I want both, and at $50 a pop plus shipping, they're just not in my budget right now. Le sad I am.

I have an idea...create your own Taschen's London, Paris, and New York books. Take one of your journals and convert it into your favorite travel guide. Use your fabulous stickers, pictures,and clever words to make a book that perfectly matches your love of these cities! When you are done, make one for me on Austin for when I visit! : )

Great wishlist! I do love the nailheads in the bed!

Love the bed. Very classy and classic. Not seen those travel guides before - off to check them out now. It is always good to have a wishlist (even if they are not in your budget right now).

Pink Heels, that's a fantastic idea! I may have to steal it ;)

Carolyn, I know I'm playing instigator, but there is a Hello Kitty version of the Instax!
