ESCAPE Bag

While perusing small shops in Saugerties, upstate NY today, I discovered this Forestbound ESCAPE bag. I gifted it to myself. As I was looking them up once I got home, I saw that you can get your own customized bag. What a fun gift.

(As a trained graphic designer I admit the shape of the P is killing me.)

NíLE Candles Yin Yang

Hello there, beautiful candles. (Also available in colors)

Wildflower Seed Confetti Cannon

I am totally into these colorful party cannons filled with confetti made out of wildflower seeds.

DIY Screen Printing Kit

Love this DIY Screen Printing Kit. What a fun gift!

Minimalist Glow Candlelight

Oh, this is an elegant design of an LED ‘candle’. (I wish they showed it when not on!)

Zip Top Reusable Silicone Bags

These Reusable Zip Tops look really useful. Basically a more sturdy version of a Zip Loc bag but that stand up on their own and you can wash and reuse. I am here for it.

Book Safe

I have a small obsession: Hollow Book Safes. There is something beautifully intriguing about hidden secret book compartments. I don’t really understand the amount of joy this brings me. But here we are. Book Rooks over on Etsy has a beautiful collection to chose from.

Create Your Own Video Print with Infinite Objects

Infinite Objects is pure magic: They make video prints.

You can now have your favorite short video, or your favorite GIF as an art object in your home, looping forever.

GAH!

I love GIFs! I love art! I love Infinite Objects.

You can chose from the existing editions, or you can make your own. The content itself can be anywhere from a few seconds to 24 hours! But as soon as it ends, it will loop again. (The battery lasts about two hours, so best to keep it plugged in.)

What a fun gift!

(I got my favorite GIF on one of them and it’s making me laugh every day. Perfectly sums up 2020!)

Pet Tags by Various Keytags

Whoa! Various Keytags launched a new spiffy website. So happy to see they added Pet Tags and Plant Tags.

Making custom tags has always been my favorite, which is now way easier. Try it here.

I am friends with the founders of the business and I can tell you they are good humans. Shop small!

My Own Lane

Lovely.

This wine bottle opener design made me smile.

Blue Whale Bank

Love this Blue Whale Bank.

Million Mile Light

The Million Mile Light is a battery-free safety light for runners and joggers that’s powered by motion and engineered to never give up. Brilliant.

Wine Glass Drying Coaster

I would totally put these wine glass drying coasters to use.

Avocado Vase

I love this Avocado Vase. (At the rate I am going my apartment is going to morph into an Avocado forest soon.)

Keith Haring Stacking Figures Game


This Keith Haring Stacking Figures Game made me look.

Teno: Sound in a New Light

I remember last year, when I had lunch with the wonderfully thoughtful and talented Max Guwanan, who’s aesthetic I deeply admire, and he showed me his latest product prototype. I at first wasn’t sure what I was looking at and he proceeded to explain it’s a light but also a speaker. Fast forward to this week, where he launched Teno, a new kind of speaker and a new kind of light. And most of all, a beautifully sculptural object. Congrats Max, you did it again. First Lumio, now Teno.

Be Kind Banner by Secret Holiday Co.

The Uplift

The world needs more poetic humans like Tom Lawton. He is the creator of Uplift, a solar-powered sculpture designed to soothe the soul that’s made from waste fishing nets.

A Walk in Paris Socks

These socks are so over the top, I love them.

Protective Evil Eye Earrings

I find these Protective Evil Eye Earrings quite charming. They’d probably make anyone I am having a face to face conversation with feel quite uneasy…

Around the World City Radio

A retro-style receiver that plays radio stations from 18 cities around the world. FUN!
