Things I Like: XI (Chairs!)

While I dabble in a few other nerd brackets, I’m unabashedly a chair nerd. When I was in college, one of my favorite courses was History of the Decorative Arts, […]

GUESS WHAT? This is my 103rd post. We’re celebrating 103 because 100 is overrated, 101 reminds me of dalmations, 102 isn’t an interesting number, and 103 is an incredibly compelling number.

Mocubo Cutting Board This solves so many problems. Sometimes I don’t want my veggies to touch. No problem! Sometimes I want to leave my cutting board on the counter–but it’s an eye sore. No problem! Sometimes I want to pretend I’m a world-renowned chef with crazy chopping skillz. Eh, still a problem. King Tut Life […]

Voice One Loudspeaker Did you ever see the movie Blast From the Past? That’s what I think of when I see these. Either that […]

Sharing, sharing, sharing. Bottle Glasses I really enjoy re-purposing objects that might otherwise get wasted. And I especially like it if the end result is useful and attractive. (Earth Momma–let’s figure out how to do this.) Barcelona Chair Originally designed by Mies van der Rohe for the 1929 International Exhibition in Barcelona, the Barcelona Chair is […]

Still sharing. Tempaper Temporary wallpaper–for renters or people with commitment issues. TARDIS Mug You know how much I love my other TARDIS mug, right? Well, this one would be such a perfect addition. Just sayin’. Plus it has a lid. And you know I’ll buy anything with a lid. dbO Home Breakfast Set Soft edges […]

Sharing is fun. Paris Tea Mug Ingenious idea–it keeps your beverage piping hot–but this is a bit on the pricey side. Check this one out: Tea Infuser Mug And it’s got a built in tea leaf strainer. Comes in many different designs (I own 2),  is affordable, and has that handy lid. I can’t pass […]
