Socks With Faces

chatty feet

Today I brought home some Chatty Socks, socks with faces. Haven’t seen my kids this excited in a long time. (I think they’re pretty cool too!)

Space Egg

UFO egg holder

This egg holder makes your soft-boiled egg look like it just landed on your plate, from outer space. Made me smile.

NomNom Cat Bowl

I am not even a cat person but yet I am getting excited over this smartly designed cat bowl by Hepper. The tray forms a moat around the bowls that catches whatever falls to the side.

Craftholic Dolls

How incredibly cute are these Craftholic cuddly creatures?

Tipsy Writer

The Tipsy Writer is a pen holder weighted by a half brass, half wooden ball. Lovely.

30 Minutes Hourglass

30 minute hourglass

Earlier this month, my friend Jen gifted me a beautiful 30min hourglass. It’s a beauty just to look at, but also oh-so-helpful for someone like me who would like to improve focus. I admit, I get easily distracted by the world around me and the always tempting internet.

I now use the hourglass to implement the idea of the Pomodoro Technique. It works! (It’s hard though!)

Stylish Sweeper and Funnel

This sweeper and funnel is a beauty. And yes, it’s crazy to spend $70 on something trivial like this, but it would sure make me happy every time I used it.

These Plant Labels made me laugh.

Love the design and message of this UGMONK shirt: Minimize. I might call that the theme of 2015.

Stackable Candles by Andrej Urem

Au collection Candle

My friend Jen gifted me this stunning Brooklyn made candle yesterday. It’s the design of Andrej Urem, who hand pours them here in the Gowanus area of Brooklyn. He has several designs that interlock, which means you can stack them. Not sure that’s practical but it sure is fun. Check out the entire collection and don’t let yourself deter you from the low-quality photography on his site. The candles are stunning!

Robot Nutcracker

I would gladly give this Robot Nutcracker a home.

Thinking of a Master Plan

I don’t know about you, but I am constantly thinking about my master plan. So, this tote, by Paper Jam Press is absolutely perfect for me. (Also available: Everyday I’m Hustling.)

What started with a few posters has turned into a small empire; wall decals, temporary tattoos and now bags. Well done, Arianna!

Memobottle

This flat, reusable water bottle made me look: It’s memobottle, a slimline, BPA free, dishwasher-friendly, reusable bottle that resembles the size and shape of pieces of paper.

You’re Officially Awesome

Officially AwesomeOfficiall Awesome

This is the best thing ever: You can buy a Certificate of Awesomeness to give to whoever deserves one, designed and signed by Jessica Hische. Look! It has rainbow edge-painting! Over the top? Yes!

All certificates ship with a rainbow pencil so the recipient or co-signer can add their own signature. That Jessica Hische! Always coming up with awesome stuff!

Key Tags

These key tags by Three Potato Four made me smile.

31011_1Observation Notebook

This is the most charming notebook I have ever seen. It’s based based on the one Jason Polan uses while moving around and sketching the world. He holds his notebook close to his face when he draws, so he thought it would be appropriate to put eyes on the notebook’s back side. LOVE!

Hashtag Garden

hashatag garden

Hashtag garden is a sculpture garden that you can hang on your wall. Think air plants, wood and moss. I have one floating over my computer at work and it makes me smile every time I look at it. Each “Hashtag” garden is an original artwork and hand-made in Los Angeles. Also available are @ symbol, LA, NY and PLAY.
