I just got back from a two-day Tattly country-side retreat where Natalie wore one of these Poler Napsacks pretty much 24/7. Here’s proof. It’s an ingenious invention if you ask me; a wearable sleeping bag. It has zippers at the shoulders, so you can stick your arms out, and a cinch at the bottom so that you can open it up and stick your legs out. Hike it up to your waist, cinch it, and wear it like a puffy coat around the campfire, and then crawl right back into your tent without ever having to leave the warmth of your bag.
Brilliant, right? Napsacks for everyone!
I noticed a lady on our office floor today with one of these stunning bags. It’s a Flea Bag. Thanks to Google I now know that Fleabags are the brainchild of Brooklyn based Shira Entis and Alex Bell. All of their bags are made with organic and vintage materials, vegetable-tanned and re-purposed leathers, and sourced in the USA. Consider me a fan!
I am a huge fan of soft boiled eggs on Sunday mornings. This is the most stylish egg holder I have come across so far: Eierbecher Set Eiche. #wishlisted
Various Keytags made me chuckle. These would make for a fun gift. (Thanks Brian)
Pop’ins bag by Deux Filles en Fil. The handbag is sold flat packed with press studs and Velcro, easy to assemble and disassemble. I like it.
The Impossible Instant Lab transforms any digital image into a real, unique analog instant photo via your iPhone or iPod touch. Simply select any photo from your iPhone, place it on the Instant Lab and within seconds it ejects your analog photo, ready to develop in front of your eyes.
It’s getting chilly here in NYC which reminded me of Pia Wallen’s beautiful Cross Blankets.
I just burst into a ‘I really really want this’ song when I discovered this metal Cinema Type Board. It comes with one pack of double sided font cards and holds up to 14 cards. It was designed by Goodwin + Goodwin and made in England.
So totally #wishlisted.
I know, I need to work on my obsession with all things red, but don’t you all have to admit that this Butler Red Side Table is quite beautiful?
I would totally sport this satchel.
Wow! Astronauts Irwin and Bull modeling the Apollo IVA (Intravehicular Activity) and (EVA) Extravehicular Activity spacesuits. I am grateful I have no dress code at the office.
This print of Apollo 1 Astronauts Working by the Pool made me smile. It shows them practicing water egress procedures in a swimming pool at Ellington Air Force Base (EAFB), Houston, Texas. Astronaut Edward H. White II rides life raft in the foreground. Astronaut Roger B. Chaffee sits in hatch of the boilerplate model of the spacecraft. Astronaut Virgil I. Grissom, third member of the crew, waits inside the spacecraft. June, 1966.
I totally want one of these prints for our studio! Available over on PrintCollection.
This Hand Shadow Puppet Chart made me look. Tempted to buy one for the kids room.
Congratulations to Herman Miller for the introduction of the Eames Molded Wood Chair. With help of 3-D veneer technology, wood veneer is being molded into the complex curves of a single shell. Stunning. Totally stunning.
Fashionable space nerds unite: Slowfactory sells silk scarves with prints from Nasa’s Hubble images. Yes, totally fantastic and nerdy.
Absolutely love this Numbers Pouf.
This incredibly minimal and beautiful cross-body bag by cleaneverything was crafted from two pieces of vegetable tanned leather with no stitches.
This Paint Retuching Pen is brilliant, touch-ups made easy. Definitely want to give this a try.
The folks at Cuppow just released a smart new product called BNTO. It separates a canning jar into two compartments, making it into a cute lunchbox that can be reconfigured for each kind of meal/snack by using different sizes of wide mouth canning jars. Two swissmiss thumbs up!
Phones don’t have the most sophisticated exposure controls, that’s where the Pocket Reflector comes in handy. Hold it opposite your main light source to bounce light back onto your subject. The white side reflects soft natural light. The silver side bounces back bright concentrated light. No batteries, harsh flashes or fancy pants required.
Also, the last line on the product description made me giggle: What if we told you we know a guy in New York with 7 pet camels? Then, we’d be lying to you, and we’d never do that.
Simple, wooden desk organizer.
