It’s been raining again here. To the point where umbrella’s are becoming a neccessary accessory to people’s every day, and the attempt to find the best quality and least mundane (with a sense of class and edgy twist) is not a simple matter.
Tray6 claims to be “giving makeovers to objects who have lost their oomph”… and focusing on “breathing life into forgotten objects”. Yes, basically a design group who is making umbrella’s fashionable and outfit matching. The refreshing greens, pinks, blues, and browns available are a breath of fresh air in a dark greyish world of rain.
So here’s the one that matches notcot’s background. A few more colorful images post jump. Also, ‘luckymag’ at checkout will get you a nice 30% discount.

The materials of this bag have extreme adventures before even getting the chance to hold your goods. Made from 2004 Soyuz Space Parachutes, America’s Cup Sails, and even Mt. Everest Tents… the durability, design, and concept behind these bags is not only recyling the materials, but the adventure as well. Everquest Designs will even let you design your own…
We also make personalized bags with your own piece of adventure. We have made bags with pieces of banner from Rolling Stones concerts and laptop bags with a tarp from a car rally in Northern Africa!. We believe perception of a famous event is purely a matter of opinion. We like to think of famous events as a “significant slice of time actually lived by our customers”. The “beat up” tent from a memorable trekking expedition in Nepal or that piece of windbreaker that survived a 200 mile hike through the Appalachian Trail really do define what a relic is all about : A piece of YOUR famous adventures. We can turn them into full-featured City or Laptop bags.

So you don’t know how to use chopsticks, and you want to, or you’re just hungry and need them to be able to grab food and get it to your mouth ASAP.
These were a hilarious or perhaps ingenious new take on easy chopsticks… that convert chopsticks (or sticks) by simply cutting holes in hardware store rubber tubing, and inserting the chopsticks.

I always said “if i had a blog i would definitely post about suck.co.uk”… and well, now i have a blog. So here’s my post to them.
For someone who grew up stateside, i always wanted a big key that did something on my keychain, and this definitely fulfilled having utility as a bottle opener and making my keychain look cool.
I was shopping some funky little london boutique when i found the Slide Light, at the time i had actually thought “wow creative use of a basic hallogen lighting… by the interior designer”, only to later find it’s actually sold by the suck boys. Still love the simplicity and such a fun way to view slides and change your lighting regularly.
And i have a soft spot for sweet mirrors that transcend their basic usage and help frame the reflection into a real looking-glass into another world (alice in wonderland-esque)… so that gets thrown in for kicks as well.

Its a pin! Its a CD! You can pop off the front and literally stick it in your computer… and wear it around too… now why they called it a BLOGpin is beyond me, but it could definitely be a cool way to get your music out there at a concert, or pass out basically anything you want… cute. New gimmick of the old business card cd-rs.
