If I Were A Rich (Wo)Man: Eclectic Taste

Bit of a strange mix of items this week in my one day wish list.

Firstly, I've been admiring this Forest Friends range of homewares from Magpie.

I'm jumping the gun a bit as the collection is not actually out until September. I know woodland is a trend that has been done into the ground, but this has a fresh feeling to it and lovely illustrations.

I particularly like the mugs.

Mugs are only £8.50 each, which is doable, but I sort of want the whole collection, which will empty my purse.

My next item is entirely different all together. Fashion designer Alice Temperley has just released her Pre-Fall collections fro Temperley London. In The Heron Maiden collection (good name) is this Long Cherry Blossom Dress.

Her clothes are always lovely, but I particularly like the cut of this dress and the embroidery teamed with 3-D applique. You wouldn't be able to walk normally wearing this dress; you'd have to waft.
I don't know how much this is but Temperley items aren't cheap, to be honest I don't really want to know.

Another fashion item: I've fallen in love with this Gold Crab Ring from Wons Upon A Time.

I don't really know why I like the crab design, I'm not a Cancer star sign, I just like the delicate and lifelike style and think it's quite a unique motif to see in jewellery design.
At £185 though I'm just going to have to dream.

Finally, and in a totally different direction, I want this Justonian Floorstanding Globe for my house.

I don't think it would even fit in my house but I still want it. I've wanted a globe for ages, I can while away hours spinning and pinning places to go. I love the antique look of this one.

At £595.95 though I think I'd be better off getting a blow up one.

That's all folks. Check back next Friday for some more unaffordable goodies with a vintage feel.
