Be Nice Tea Towel x David Shrigley

It’d be awfully tempting to stuff this tea towel into the mouth of a loud, mean person. Would we get punched in the face? Probably. But, it might shut them up, at least temporarily. And, it’d be hard to be mean when holding a tea towel with a pretty rainbow and the words ‘BE NICE’, wouldn’t it? So, maybe they’d change, as if by magic. After removing it from their mouths, of course.

Little Sun Diamond

You remember the pocket-sized Little Sun Solar Light? The latest iteration features a crystalline, faceted lens and packs in two more hours of light: five hours of sunlight charging gives five hours of power.

Michelle Rondelli Cotton Blanket

Now that we’re officially into September (the first few days didn’t really count), it’s time to take stock of your blankets, or more specifically, your throw blankets. Do you have one? Do you need another one?

Pleated Planter and Vase

Handmade in terracotta-coloured earthenware, the Pleated Planter and Vase feature geometric pleats to catch the light. The planter has an added bonus of a self-watering wick to make sure your leafy companion gets just the right amount of water, while the vase is ideal for longer stems and less permanent greenery.

Wall Willy Hook

As another option of body-parts-as-hooks (see Female Support System Brass Hooks and the Boob Hook), Eric Trine offers up the Wall Willy Hook. I know what you’re thinking- which body part do my clothes like best? Don’t let your hats/jackets/scarves be discriminatory, get both the Wall Willy and the Boob Hook! Best to put them in different areas (entryway, bathroom, or dressing area), so they each get a chance to shine.

5 Sconces under $150

Not everyone can afford super expensive lighting, especially when that lighting might be going in, say, a kid’s bedroom or guest room. They should just be happy they’ve got a light to read by, right? So, here’s a break for you: five sconces under $150. Yep, you read that right, no zeros are missing. Now, I can’t vouch for the quality, so keep that in mind… though, usually you get what you pay for, in my experience.

Female Support System Brass Hooks

Okay, so, back to work*. How fun are these Female Support System brass wall hooks by Kaye Blegvad? They’re laser cut from solid brass and work best in pairs (two facing each other, of course). Best for jewelry, towels, and other lightweight clothing. Pretty fun.

Anker 15W Dual USB Solar Charger

With all the news coverage of the flooding in Houston, it’d be silly not to assess your disaster preparedness plan. Do you have one? Do you have the necessary food, water, and gear, just in case your city is hit with a natural (or man-made) disaster? And, considering most of us rely on our mobile phones, do you have a solar and/or hand crank charger? If not, now’s the time to get one, so you can at least be certain you can power up your device if the electrical grid fails you.

Rhodes Desk Organizer

How about a heavy, expensive bar of brass to organize your pens, pencils, and paperwork? A wide slot accommodates a mobile phone while the narrower channels will fit all sorts of notes, cards and lists. Use it as a storage spot for just the essentials or stuff it full with all the papers floating around your desk. You’ll at least look a little organized.

Arch Table Lamp

How pretty is this Arch Table Lamp? A tripartite, powder-coated steel base is paired with circular panels of glass to create an elegant form that displays a subtle light. Touches of brass joinery and a dimmer switch make the lamp suitable for more polished, elevated interiors.

Bend’s Modular Art Piece

Here’s another fun art option that leans a little more towards sculpture. Made with Bend’s signature metal wire, the pieces are modular to allow for customization. Sold in sets of 2, in either curved or straight pieces, you’re able to arrange the pieces however you wish, in whatever size you’d like. Make the most impact by choosing several straight and curved sets in your favorite color, then have fun figuring out the best look for your wall.

Moss Sanctuary

Sure, Botanica offers smaller Moss Sanctuaries, but it’s the medium size that may fit your favorite plant best. With a marble base and polycarbonate top, it’s a nicer planter than you’ll find at any garden supply shop (correct me if I’m wrong). Their Sanctuary-S “mini-mossarium” is worth a look, as it easily fit on a desk and features a teardrop top to direct water back onto the foliage.

Catherine McDonald California Coast Tapestry

Okay, so maybe this is leaning a little too far into dorm room decor for some of us, but can you see the potential? It’s a really large print of the California coast on fabric. Maybe you hang it on the wall, or maybe you throw it over the back of an unsightly sofa until you get around to recovering it. You could even stretch it over a frame for a slicker art look. Know what I mean? Possibilities…

Round Moon Phases Beach Towel

Did you see the eclipse yesterday? That event is the only reason why a round, fringed beach towel is featured today. You’ll most likely never see the likes of it again*; let’s hope that’s not the case of other notable astronomical events.
