We Are The Hyde Park Village People Our Parents Warned Us About

Complementary Spouse Britt Shirley and I strolled around Old Hyde Park Village Saturday afternoon. We didn't need to buy anything, but we didn't have anything else to do -- and didn't want to become attached to the teevee.

Here's what we saw.

Stadium Bundt Pan at Williams-Sonoma
I wish I owned (a) this stadium-shaped bundt pan from Williams-Sonoma, (b) the talent and the desire to make and decorate bundt cakes.

Beehive Bundt Cake Pan
It's what everyone's been asking for -- a bundt cake pan in the shape of New Zealand's parliament building!

Penn State football guys
This bucket of miniature Penn State football players contains a life-sized Joe Paterno.

Pottery Barn anagrams
The Pottery Barn employees probably shouldn't leave the "Peace, Wish, Joy" stocking-holder letters just sitting out, unattended. Any idiot could come along, rearrange them, and take a picture with his cell phone. Kind of like this.

When I Grow Up, I Want To Be A 1950s Housewife
If your daughter (or son) has been hinting that she (or he) wants to be a 1950s housewife when she (or he) grows up, Pottery Barn Kids has a set of toys to sell you!
