I covet


Verb: Yearn to possess or have (something)

Every now and then, I see 'something'......, in a store, on the internet, in a magazine, in someone's house, or on someone...; and in my head, I'll say, I WANT IT.....! At times, its easy for me to own that 'something' ....but such instances are few. More often than not, its not possible to possess what I want, because of one or more  of these reasons-

a) I may not know where to get it from
b) Its beyond my budget 
c) Its not logistically possible to get it 
d) I may not have an appropriate place to keep it
e) It does not go with the color scheme in my home
f) I may own something similar and I don't want to waste it

......or any other reason. I mean, c'mon, I can never get everything that I want....but there is no harm in coveting. Hence, I decided to use my blog to bookmark and catalog all those things that I covet.

So listen all you people, who love me, and want to give me a gift anytime in the future, you can refer to this series of mine and always take some ideas.

Let me start by sharing a few such things today....

Lamps made of woven twine....these would look lovely on top of my bookshelves.

The cutest clothes hamper I have ever seen....don't you agree?

This rug would be like heaven under my feet....

The perfect lamp for my family room side table....I wonder if this can be a DIY?

This embroidered gudri bedspread from Fabindia....perfect for my guest room

A set of these on my kitchen wall....gorgeous!

Are you coveting something lately? Share them here in the comments below or send me an email.....maybe we can covet together:)

  2. I am coveting so many things now.but for starter all those images of the lampshades that you are showing and those wooden dippers.they are to die for !!

  3. I'm glad that you are like these too....
    @ Sumana: Love those bowls that you shared. Thanks.

  4. that second lamp shade, that can be easy DIY...we have tried that many years back...and it is sitting beautifully in our India living room...

  5. OMG!

    Neha, I liked your blog!!! I'll share on my blogs list. My friends should know!

    Thanks for the visit.



  6. Neha, love all of the things you covet. I am on the lookout for a clothes hamper and that one is so cute:):)

  7. I love the elephant clothes hamper, and I am attracted to the white elephant clothes hamper, which i saw in the site, he is so cute, cute. I also like the bedspread of Fabindia, maybe I could go and check it out at the FI near our home. I won't have the heart to use that elephant hamper, he is too good for that.
    Yes there are many things, but we must find the right place for them. I still have so many paintings to hang, but i am not finding the right place to hang them,or the right way to organise them, so they are still lying unframed. Sometimes I find myself cluttering too many things together, because I hate to keep them inside, where they would remain forgotten.
    Thanks for sharing all your wants with us.
