Closed Mondays

This large Circle Handbag by Closed Mondays made me gasp! What a beauty! Definitely wish listed!

Parenthood

“i do not expect my child’s respect.
just because i have given birth to their life.
does not mean they owe me.
anything.
what i want most
is to look into my child’s eyes
and
see
that i have given birth
to
a
heart.
have
honored.
held and feed.
someones
heart.
from the moment we first met.
and
they love me for it.”
― Nayyirah Waheed

The Invisible Dog’s Season 9

Lucien, the force behind The Invisible Dog Art Center is one of my favorite humans, ever. I love the creative community he has built here on Bergen street, and let me be part of. He gets my support for Season 9 of The Invisible Dog. Does he get yours?

The video is by the super talented team of Mac Premo. Definitely my favorite Kickstarter video to date!

German Untranslatable Words

As a native German speaker living in the USA this Untranslatable German Words Box of Cards delights me to no end. I hope it includes FINGERSPITZENGEFUEHL and ESELSBRUECKE.

Finally, an Off-Road Suitcase

The G-RO Carry-On Suitcase looks super practical. It features really big wheels so you can go off-road and not just walk on perfectly smooth airport surfaces. Goodbye tiny suitcase wheels.

Chromatin


Chromatin is the animated variation of Medina Dugger’s Chroma photo project which celebrates women’s hair styles in Nigeria. Made me look.

BikeBlock

BikeBlock is a minimal, concrete bicycle stand.

Pleasure / Happiness

Pleasure is short-term, addictive and selfish. It’s taken, not given. It works on dopamine.

Happiness is long-term, additive and generous. It’s giving, not taking. It works on serotonin.

Benjamin Brush

You are looking at a mighty adorably looking toothbrush that comes with an integrated speaker and music store. Choose a song, and it’ll play for two minutes- the recommended amount of time to get those teeth clean. My kids would approve of Benjamin Brush. Get one by pledging over on Kickstarter.

Common Sense Media

Under what rock was I hiding all this time that I have never heard of Common Sense Media? I told my friends that I made the mistake of showing my kids a movie the other day that I thought was perfectly fine for their age. It wasn’t. Ops!

Common Sense Media looks like the site I should have consulted first.

“Stay Out of Politics”

The Uncomfortable


I am having so many feelings looking at these images titled The Uncomfortable, a series of inconvenient household items designed by Katerina Kampran.

I want to be here

This aerial photograph by Niaz Uddin made me gasp. I wouldn’t mind being that person in that kayak right now.
