His + Her Favorite Things


It’s that time again, His & Her Favorite Things! For those of you who are just joining in here at 7th House (according to Analytics, there are a lot of new readers recently! So, welcome!), this is where we share a peek into what we’ve been digging over the past few weeks, what’s in our shopping bags and generally what’s catching our eye. We started this feature way back when the blog first began – actually even a year before that on my old photography blog – and it seems to be a favorite here among the readers, so we’ve kept it around. After all, knowing a person’s favorite things is a great way to get to know them, right? We normally start with Greg, but this month, we’re switching it up a little…

Her Favorite Things / 7th House on the Left

1. Waiting Room Magazine Rack: I’ve been on the lookout for some wall magazine storage for my office. This modern rustic beauty is on my short list. / 2. Lomography La Sardina Analogue Camera: Even though digital is where it’s at (for blogging anyway), I love the classic sardine can design and practical 35mm format of this guy. / 3. Built-Ins: Our grand plan for the living room is to add a wall of built-ins on the “tv wall”. That being the case, we’ve been collecting many, many Pins of different built-in looks. / 4. Young House Love: We love these guys, and their book is top notch. We were honored, thrilled and just plain giddy when we saw our blog on the blogroll list in the back of the book. / 5. Gold iPhone Handset: I finally caved in and bought one of these beauties. It’s totally unnecessary, but it’s so much fun to use.

His Favorite Things / 7th House on the Left

1. Fender 5-String Jazz Bass: When I went to NAMM in Anaheim last month, I had an epiphany–I want to play bass. I’ve been a guitarist for 15 years, and it’s time to add another instrument to my arsenal. This Fender Jazz Bass V is on my short list of options. / 2. David Gilmour: Best known as the guitarist from Pink Floyd, this guy is one of the best rock guitar players out there, and his vocals are awesome as well. If you love music, please do yourself a favor and pick up Pulse or Live in Gdansk. / 3. Lego Mug: I’m not sure how functional this is, but I’m not sure I care. If anything, it could be an excellent catch-all for my desk at work. 4. Frosted Mini Wheats: I have a particular love for Frosted Mini Wheats these days. When I’m watching my carb intake, these are pretty much my main weakness. They’re just so good! Image from here.

That wraps up this month’s installment of His & Hers. Do you have any favorites at the moment? Tell us in the comments!
