Bella Bean Couture has a sweet little collection of collars, leads and doggie beds. Some of my favorites are Modern Loop
and Mod Dot.
I also dig (heh, get it?) this Yummy Retro doggie bed.

This tote bag is summer minus the flip flops. Florentine wicker and leather craftmanship make this way more Hamptons than grandma.
I did finally get around to actually looking at watches. This watch by Krizia has a sleek and sophisticated feel with really modern touches.
I like that this Haurex watch has a bit of a rocker bent but with a sleek and stylish finish.
This Moschino watch is perfect with its elastic band and retro funk vibe. Not so much an every day kind of watch but definitely a catch the eye kind of watch.

A bassinet is one of those cool-to-have-but-not-really-necessary baby items. This one is so stylish, it might just become a must have.
I love this little ride on toy. They come in cow, bee and ladybug prints.

He would also love to upgrade from his across-the-doorway chin up bar to this standing Chin & Dip Station (EA). And I would love for him to do his pull up stuff outside!
Now if your Dad or husband isn't an exercise obsessed paratrooper, I may be of less help. But, this Beer-O-Matic retro 12-can vending machine from Perpetual Kid may do the trick. It's just short of kegerator but with some style.
Throw rugs are probably not the first thing that comes to mind when you're looking for a Father's Day gift. But these sewer cover rugs, also from Perpetual Kid, are pretty cool for a garage or shed.
The husband and I are from fly fishing territory where angling is considered just about on par with, well, murder. Orvis has fly tying kits from the basic all the way up to this juggernaut. However your giftee fishes, the best thing about a fishing gift is its explicit encouragement to get away guilt-free.
Always a hit with the husband (not so much the Dad) is really anything from figleaves.com.
Or, for a gift that's more for you than him, try Kenzo Pour Homme Cologne. This is consistently picked as one of the best men's fragrances ever.
Don't forget that the best present you can give your husband or Dad is to let them know how great a Dad you think they are!

I dig these recycled tire planters on a couple different levels. They have a real industrial vibe with a handmade look.
And, they remind me of the wacky hey-honey-let's-build-an-Earthship-days. What, you didn't live those? Well, look closely, you'll see the recycled tires in the foundation.
I love this sleek table set. Its way more art than adirondack.
This next piece is a ceramic fire bowl. It's really just a fancy candle. But, I'm going to pretend its big like an outdoor fire pit. Because, that's what I'd like it to be and this blog is all about my little material heart's desires. Okthanksbye.
The perfect place to indulge that last wee little bit of inner rebel is E.C. Star. In general, the line is more punk than I've ever been. But, some of the pieces are just perfect for me - even in all my suburban glory.
I love this dress. I love that its seersucker. I love that its black seersucker. Most of all, I love that they call it the Pirate Dress.
Because that means it goes perfectly with this fantastic tote.
I am so not a cat person. I'm not even sure why I like this simple tank top so much. But, I do.
I also really like this vintage birdie tee. I don't usually wear t-shirts, but I could make an exception for this one!
And lastly, this brings me back to my usual, girlie girl ways.
