Vego Garden

Wow! These metal raised garden beds by Vego Garden are visually pleasing! Swoon!

Companionable Silence

I love the idea of being in companionable silence with friends.

Rumple Puffy Blanket

Rumple makes Puffy Blankets that roll up like a sleeping bag. I am especially intrigued by the super small size they offer: The NanoLoft Travel Blanket combines Rumple’s proprietary down-alternative insulation with the same technical materials found in premium sleeping bags and insulated jackets to keep you warm and cozy on the go. Who doesn’t want a blanket for everywhere? (Love that Lisa Congdon designed one of these blankets!)

Waves of Deadwood

These massive waves of deadwood by Jörg Gläscher have won my heart.

Hoptea

My decision to stop drinking a few months has made me put my feelers out for exciting, tasty non-alcoholic beverages. There’s a lot on the market but unfortunately many of the drinks are super high in sugar. But then I discovered Hoplark’s Hoptea, a super tasty, refreshing, frizzy ice tea. Non-alcoholic. No sugar. No calories. Just tea. I am in love and won’t stop gushing about them. Hopefully I can convince my local deli and grocery stores to carry them, but until then, I order online.

Ben Zank

Totally smitten by Ben Zank’s peculiar aesthetic.

The Zodiac Man

I am wildly fascinated by this graphic, found in an article called The Zodiac Man.

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?

These aerial photographs of 1960s communal dining areas in Singapore’s Social housing make my heart sing.

Every Noise at Once

Every Noise at Once is an ongoing attempt at an algorithmically-generated, readability-adjusted scatter-plot of the musical genre-space, based on data tracked and analyzed for 5,430 genre-shaped distinctions by Spotify as of 2021-05-08.

This is weird. And fascinating.

(Thank you Manu)

Levitating Moon Lamp

I bought my daughter a Levitating Moon Lamp and we both agree it’s MAGICAL. (It took us a moment to get it to levitate but once we figured out the trick it clicked.)

Lucky Sweater

This is a baby sweater. I wish it came in adult sizes.

Clarity & Connection

Yung Pueblo birthed a new book: In Clarity & Connection, Yung describes how intense emotions accumulate in our subconscious and condition us to act and react in certain ways.

If you’re not familiar with his work, check out his Instagram to get a taste. His work is soul nourishing.

Impressive Google Earth Update

Google Earth is one of the most magical offerings on the internet if you ask me. And now time flies in Google Earth’s biggest update in years.

Applause Encouraged #111415

I love this: Applause Encouraged #111415 by Scott Polach was Installed as part of Convergence, a site-specific show at Cabrillo National Monument in San Diego. Guests were checked in by a greeter, asked to turn off their phones, reminded not take any photos for a 45 min duration and were ushered to their seats. At the last light the group applauded, and participants were offered refreshments.

Leather Bag for my Brompton

I have become a proud Brompton owner during the pandemic. Not buying subway cards was the perfect excuse to finally invest into one of these beauties!

But I haven’t been very excited about the bags they offer that attach at the front of the bike. I just discovered (and ordered) this fancy leather one over on Etsy. Can’t wait to receive it!
