Sky's the Limit: Gift Guides for the Design Lover - Part 2

If you read Part 1 of this post, you know that while I may be generous of heart (hopefully), I am not, in fact, generous of means. That doesn't mean that I don't enjoy some wonderful window shopping, though...

The design lover in me salivates at the thought of owning these lovely objects, while the realist in me knows it will never happen. But that doesn't mean I can't live vicariously, right? So, why not join me? Let's dream a little dream (when we're done, you might want to wipe up all that drool on your keyboard, though)...
