Lucky Snowflake Ornament Card

I know it’s probably way too late to get these for this holiday season, but, hey, if you buy them now you can save them for next year and be way ahead of the game. They’re awfully pretty.

City Fantasy Shade

These would provide a nice alternate view for those of you that might not have a desirable one.

Fantasy Shades: Fine art serigraph: white ink on white material creates a shadow from another city in your room. Pull down the shade and create an alternate reality! … 1. Umbrella Trees Create the illusion of a view of Rome from a rooftop apartment. The trees are just outside your window. 2. I left my heart in San Francisco The Golden Gate Bridge is just beyond reach. The shadow of the bridge is visible when you pull down the shade.”

Silverado Rectangular Table

Quite a deal on a table, if you ask me. Since the two bases aren’t attached, there’s versatility in the type of top you choose as well as the amount of leg room you need. You can push them together and have a round glass top for a smaller fit. This also could be a nice desk…

Droplet (dropper)

Something like this makes me want to cook just so I could use it.

“This curious object is intended to be a soy sauce dropper, but would work well for other liquids in your gourmet pantry, like your fanciest olive oil. Fill with your liquid of choice, hold your finger over the hole in the dropper and lift – you control the drops with a little bit of physics. This elegant glassware will look beautiful on your dining table.”

‘rokki’ rings by Orfeo Quagliata

This handmade glass ring has just enough glitz to be quite possibly the perfect gift.

“While it might have the shape of a carefully shaped and polished stone piece, there is no doubting it’s made of glass once you see light shining through one – the colors practically come alive. And while six different color styles are available, due to their handmade nature, each rokki ring is unique ( just as each one of orfeo’s other pieces ). as such, the exact size, tone, mixture, and opacity of the ring will vary from piece to piece.”

montessori pink tower

I went to a Montessori school when I was growing up and I remember loving the pink tower and the way the wood sounded as the blocks clinked together on the shiny pink lacquer. I also remember how someone would always steal top block.

If you do have kids, the pink tower is used for introducing children to concepts of three dimensional size variance, weight differential and intricate stacking.

Whether you have kids or not, it’s a pretty cool looking sculptural object.
