Pepita

While back in Switzerland last week I had a Pepita Grapefruit Drink. Which prompted me to find this super old school commercial from the 1960s. Made me smile.

Earthrise

Earthrise tells the story of the first image captured of the Earth from space in 1968. Told through the voices of the Apollo 8 astronauts themselves, the film recounts their experiences and memories and explores the beauty, awe, and grandeur of the Earth against the blackness of space. Read the story here.

Bob Ross

It took me a long time to discover Bob Ross. But, here I am.

Conserve The Sound

Conserve the Sound« is an online museum for vanishing and endangered sounds. The sound of a dial telephone, a walkman, a analog typewriter, a pay phone, a 56k modem, a nuclear power plant or even a cell phone keypad are partially already gone or are about to disappear from our daily life. Love this!

This Desk!

This desk, titled “Boomerang”, from 1970s totally stopped me in my tracks. What an incredible piece. Also, $85,000.

Abandoned States

Watch places in idyllic 1960s postcards transform into scenes of abandonment.

Making the New York Times

In September 1942, Office of War Information photographer Marjory Collins paid a visit to the offices of the New York Times, located at the iconic One Times Square and an annex on 43rd Street. Click through to see them all. Beautiful!

The Original Mac OS Control Panel

I remember the day my dad brought home our fist Mac. I was 11. Looking back now, the first control panel was a thing of beauty. Still cracking up over the turtle and bunny in the keyboard typing speed setting.

Anyone remember the game Frogger? I plaid for hours on end.

Record Player P1

A thing of beauty, the Dieter Rams designed Record Player P1 from 1959.

The Early Days of The Internet

An exhibition in London gathers 64 artifacts of the early web, from the first site that allowed users to order pizza online to one of the first animated GIFs to go viral. I wish I could see this!

Vogue x Tattly

Tattly partnered with Vogue Magazine. I keep giggling every time I mention those two brands together. It’s making my heart explode a little bit. It doesn’t escape me that it is an absolute privilege for a young company like Tattly to collaborate with an esteemed and trusted brand like Vogue! I remember sitting in their conference room, a few months back, overlooking lower Manhattan and thinking “is this really happening?”

And now it’s here, we launched the Vintage Vogue Collection. My team and I spent days going through their 125 year magazine archive and picked some of our favorite illustrations from the 20s, 30s and 40s.

The lady riding the zebra, which is a Vogue cover illustration is definitely the one that won my heart. But the there’s also the woman holding up a mask in the Vogue Set that keeps making me smile.

This is a limited edition collection, so get it while you can.

(My apologies to my international readers, unfortunately we are only allowed to ship within the U.S)

Valentine’s Day and the Romance of Cobwebs

These cobweb Valentine’s have me swoon.

Oil Tank House Boat

It’s a houseboat made out of oil tank. I am weirdly intrigued by this.

I am definitely gravitating towards the absurd these days in order to distract and cope with the madness here in the U.S.

Mr. Rogers Introduces Kids to Experimental Electronic Music by Bruce Haack & Esther Nelson (1968). Made me smile.
