NWR: Window (or browser) shopping

So ladies do you ever find yourself window shopping (or browser shopping on the internet) at things you might not ever be able to afford?

I can spend hours on the Tiffany & Co website looking at several pieces. My new thing is a pink diamond ring that cost $710,000 which is the price of a very nice house. I was so excited when my DH and I went to Tiffanys to buy our wedding rings, for years I had been wanting someting from there...craving the little blue box wrapped in white ribbon.

What are your dream items to own that you sometimes find yourself window shopping for?

Sidenote:
So when I went to pick up the rings the lady gave me a bunch of little blue Tiffany gift bags without me asking at all. I decided I would use them to gift gifts in. My in-laws assume I am "poor" (whatever that means to them) and so I decied to give my MIL a necklace set from walmart for Christmas, but I put it in the Tiffany bag. So then I got his grandma this beautiful broach which I actually got for free because I spent over $40 at Avenue. I put that in another little Tiffany bag. Normally whenever I give his grandma a gift she always gives me back the bag, this was the first time she didn't, she says "Oh its such a pretty bag."I always pick pretty gift bags and everyone knows Tiffany bags are as plain as anything just blue with "Tiffary & Co" on it in small letters. I told my FI even though she is losing her eye sight she saw it was a Tiffany bag, or course she was goiing to keep it.

    I window shop for houses all the time. When driving, I'll just turn into a new development without thought. I know I can't afford them right now, but I tell myself that eventually I will!

    I do to! There is this housing development on the other side of town from me and I always dream of buying a house there. Even some older houses. A reality company bought the house across the street from my mom and re-did the entire inside and put it back up for sale, I would love that house.

    I window shop for larger condo units in FI's building, for furniture (specifically beds for the moment) and for natural hair products.  Of course I never buy any of these things, I just like to look.
