Bunny Bottle Opener




It has been awhile since I last looked at Decor Craft's site, with all their nifty bits and pieces. I first came across them when I discovered the wonderful world of Arash and Kelly, and their Genius Pads (aka giant post it notes), which they had initially distributed in the US (but I think they no longer do).

Anywhooo, I was checking out Decor Crafts' new wares and came across the Bunny Bottle Opener. At first I thought it was a bit creepy, but upon closer inspection I realized the great kitsch value if offered - heck it might even look good in my kitchen.
So here's to kitschy kitchen products everywhere!


PS: I'm also a HUGE fan of their clothes pin trash can......

Alyson Beaton Design





Alyson Beaton is a Chicago based designer and what I like to think of as a modern day renaissance woman - she knits, she letterpresses cards and designs artist books. Her exquisite attention to detail and design gives her items almost their own grouping. One of her projects that has stuck in my head is her Baby's First Words letterpressed cards set.
Sold through Fawn & Forest, this beautiful set includes a letterpressed card for each letter of the alphabet, so that parents can indicate and a have a memento of each of their child's first words.
In a sea of baby books and such, this stands out on its own as something for new parents to treasure. I almost wish I had a kid so I had an excuse to purchase this!!

Is West Elm Embracing Mid Century Modernism?


When I got the new West Elm catalog in the mail today, it really surprised me (in a good way), when I discovered this new table and chairs that they have for sale. Considering WE leans toward modern furniture with an Asian influence, I was impressed to see these new designs - very clean, simple, elegant, kind of Danish almost. These chairs are surprisingly affordable too, which is nice, under $200 each. Seeing this makes me want to chuck away my dining chairs I impulse purchased from Calypso home.

I found My New Love!!!



This new item, currently a part of Fred Flare's Next Big Thing, are Russian nesting dolls/Matryoshka that blow my mind - they're made out of paper! The designer, Tim Haugen, is a florist by day, craftmaster by night. His originality and designs just amaze me. He also has an awesome etsy shop featuring his stuffed animals, so there's definitely more of his items to treasure.

Sicky


Why is everyone sicky? Now it seems to be my turn....
It's kind of weird that you can get a cold in the summer, and get away with not catching one in the winter.
