The Muse Portable Lamp

How ridiculously beautiful is this portable, rechargeable, old-school looking lamp? (I mentioned it in last week’s Friday Link Pack but love it so much I have to post it with a photo! Wishlisted!)

Screwdriver Ring

Simone Giertz, who is known for her absurd machines like this one, started an online store with fun products. I love the Screwdriver ring.

Big fan of Adam J.K’s Unsolicited Advice 2022 Weekly Planner and Journal. The cover alone is making me want to buy it.

10 of My Favorite Things of 2021

These are things I lovingly own:


My all-time favorite object in my house at the moment is this acorn vase.



Zena Swiss Vegetable Peeler. It might not look impressive, but let me tell you, this thing WORKS!



This LED light that can hold a charge for about 10h. I use it as a desk lamp and nightstand light. (My kids are each getting one for Christmas)



The Vava short-throw home theater projector has changed our life. I honestly don’t know why I ever need to set foot into a theater again. It’s expensive but oh-so-worth-it!



This acrylic bird feeder has brought endless hours of delight to both me and my cat. (I am looking at a BlueJay in it while I am typing this.)



I have had this cat litter box for a few years but have a new found appreciation for it now that I have adopted a dog and she can’t get to the cat’s poop. It’s such a sculptural and beautiful design, I don’t mind it sitting in the corner of my living room.


One Line a Day: A Five-Year Memory Book. I write a sentence or two every night, and in a year I can see where I was the year prior and travel in time every night. Fun!


This boldly patterned wool scarf by See Design. (I also own and love this toiletry bag.)



This Ginkgo Leaf Shaped Dog Blanket/Bed. (That’s my rescue pup. I adopted her 3 weeks ago. I love her.)



Onsen bath towels make me happy. I ilearned about them because they sponsored my blog years back. I was curious and ordered a bunch of towels and loved them so much I replaced ALL of my towels in my house. I swear by the gray Bath Towel. My kids approve of them too.

Wooden Elephant Stapler

Now this is a stapler I’d let hang out on my desk.

Geometric Colouring Book


I am super duper into this Geometric Coloring Book by Kapitza.

Ilex Studio | Avocado & Acorn Vase


This avocado vase and this acorn vase by Ilex make me swoon! Wishlisted!

Geometric Earrings

Not sure I could pull these off, but these geometric earrings made me look.

Compostable Sponge Set

These are some pretty compostable sponge sets. They are made from 100% natural materials – 70% FSC certified cellulose, 30% cotton and vegetal dyes. They can be washed both in the dishwasher and the washing machine — so they won’t harbor bacteria.

Half Matryoshka Cupola Set by Raduga Grez

The beautifully-colored half matryoshka cupola set is hand-made by Raduga Grez in Russia.

Fade Puzzle

Yep, this is one cool puzzle.

Business

I keep laughing at this Business hat! So many fun ways to use it to bring a point across…

Edie Parker Abstract Basketball

What is going on, I am all of a sudden posting design-y balls. This one last week. Now this basketball. A new obsession?

Instagram Grid Poster

Yep, I want one of these Instagram Grid Posters. Their Photo Strips are cool too! What a great bookmark-gift!

Yellow Leaf Hammocks

In case you’re on the lookout for a hammock, look no further: Yellow Leaf Hammocks! I own two of this exact style and I leave them outside all summer. Through rain and all, they stay perfectly nice. I don’t even understand how that is possible. They are stylish AND comfortable.

Surface Snap

I am often annoyed at my phone cable slipping off my night stand or desk. I just discovered the good looking SurfaceSnaps. They are aesthetically pleasing and won’t damage the surface you stick them on. What’s not to love?
