In a rush around world, its not often you can spontaneously whip out a little candle, burn it to the end, be relaxed, and then run off to the next part of your day… Or you can. Cute idea =) Adorable packaging. Zinoo Park Designs…
It reminds me of a yoga mat. when being carried and folded anyhow. But it seems like a nice alternative to those tiny flimsier bags you crunch up into your main purse, and whip out… and “poof” a nice bag for all your groceries? It looks more sturdy and i like the over the shoulder carrying style… groceries can get heavy! But i’m all for the recycled bag usage, especially when walking a few blocks with groceries (be it for excercise or necessity)
Glarkware has a few amusing products i had to share this 2am. First we have the EKG House messenger bag, which has a button you can add on with little cottages on it. Second is the Urban Asshole Notification Cards (not sure why it is specifies urban, i’m sure they have assholes in other places as well)… [Each card is scored but not folded so you can present them as is or fold them up so that the recipient only sees “Congrats!” before they get “You’re An Asshole” and the hard truth on the other side.] And last but not least, bringing out the Rock in the Classics buttons.
So i’ve been yoga/pilates mat shopping… It took me a while to find one i liked… so figured i’d share what i ended up on. I hate those with that sticky rubbery feel, and then you have to put a towel over it too? And i liked one that was light weight, but still gripped the floor. Wandering through target (was looking for random cleaning supplies)… found this great one by Reebok! It’s the ultra performance mat, and is thick, light, and the top is made of a layer of moisture-wicking material. Just tried it out, and it’s perfect. 23$
Found one of these “maps” yesterday. Its gorgeous, and has great detailing, when you put it up, the shadowing of the creases of an old map really age it, although its printed on fine Italian paper (and is actually for gift wrap)… but at 4$ it looks great up! Dying to get a hold of the actual product catalog… Anyone have some connections to make that happen? Would love an old antique Milan map replica like that… or who knows what other goodies are available? Cavallini $ Co.
Playful addition to put some life into your office filing. La Coctelera found this piece, and the image was all i needed to show you.
So you have old records, or lots of favorite record covers? The bags by RockMusick allow you to swap your favorite record covers in and out at will… the record bracelets are quite fun as well!
This rocks my world at this lovely 4:35 am , and more importantly, the response of a friend upon viewing these was, UH, i did that in junior high, go take the print/book making class at the local community college, there are tons of drawers of ancient typefaces and wingding like imagery.
So fine. Maybe i will. Look into it tomorrow.
They’re shaped like little turtles, and while they don’t offer a whole lot of robotic functionality, they will remember rythms tapped out o n their shells and walk to that rhythm. They can also run, play melodies, and so forth. Walkiebits, with the “world’s smallest class” (Takara) body, feature four modes: “Walk” in which the turtle shakes its rear as it makes sound, “Rhythm Mode” which will imitate learned rhythms as it walks, “Race Mode” in which the turtle runs, and “Sing Mode” where the turtle will play melodies with electronic sounds.
This elephant has nice curves. Somedays the world gets to you, and the tiniest little thing can somehow put a smile on your face… wandered around Normal Heights and Hillcrest today in San Diego, stumbled upon Importers Outlet at 4247 Park Blvd. Filled with a pretty decent and well priced selection of goods from Southeast Asia, and a few rather bizarre objects like fuzzy plastic dayglo jesus/mary/buddhas… but great finds from pottery and incense to large furniture pieces. For perspective the little guy is about 5” head to butt.
I visited the Salvation Army Thrift Store in South San Francisco today and found this cute set of ice cream dishes. Awww. I sort of miss Action Thrift Store down in San Diego. They have a ton of miscellaneous junk there. I was looking for some old bad/good/bad framed artwork, but struck out yet again today. If anybody reading this is from the Bay Area and knows of a really great thrift store besides Thrift Town in the Mission in SF and the Salvation Army stores, please let me know!
