Copper Chemistry Carafe and Glasses

A little copper makes a big difference in this drinkware set. The copper bands wrapped around each piece are like cummerbunds; it's pretty obvious someone's dressed up for a fancy occasion. And, just like a cummerbund, the copper band could be kept on all the time for a dressier look, or you could take it off to bathe put the set in the dishwasher or go for a more casual ...Read more

Triada Blocks

When the summer laziness hits you, you'd better take a break and do something different. Like, say, play with some three-pronged blocks. Many grownups see blocks as a toy meant purely for the playroom, but others know a pile of wooden blocks can be just as useful on a desk or in an office break room. So, buy a set for yourself or buy a set for some little ones, ...Read more

Upcycled T-Shirt Lampshade Kit

Yes, the Bowie image makes this Upcycled T-Shirt Lampshade Kit way more appealing than it probably is, but you could possibly have some fun with this, especially if you have a t-shirt that you never wear but refuse to donate. Or, might this might be a great project for a favorite kid during these long summer days? Just make sure they use their own t-shirts instead of your prized concert ...Read more

Ceylon Pitcher

Regular water is so offensive. Personally, I only drink lemon-infused water or cucumber-mint water. That's a big fat fib, but I certainly could drink my water that way every single day if this pitcher was in my fridge. Iced tea or fruit infused water is super easy to make and have on hand with the Ceylon Pitcher. The removable filter allows for easy separation of leaves or fruit and the ...Read more

Easy To Strain Bowl by Ryann Aoukar

You do rinse your fruits and vegetables, don't you? There's no telling who sneezed on it, after all, and there's always a chance that some creepy crawly bug has hitched a ride, unbeknownst to us all. But it wastes so much water, you say. I know, I know. The Easy To Strain Bowl by Ryann Aoukar will help with that, as it has a spout/handle that makes draining easy- ...Read more

Two pieces of walnut (locally harvested, hazard or salvaged) have super strong neodymium magnets that snap together to hold your favorite snaps.

Uplift Adjustable Height Desk

Remember the Renew™ Executive Sit-to-Stand Desk featured last week? You might have thought it was a little out of your price range, and, if so, maybe you'll find this Uplift Desk to be a bit more within reach. Sure, there's a few differences you'll notice between the two, but if you want a more affordable sit-stand option, this might be a winner. The steel frame has a motor in each ...Read more

OMY Giant Coloring Page

C'mon, it looks fun, right? A giant coloring page to fill, with markers or crayons or both. You could certainly wile a few minutes (or hours) away, and we've not even talked about how much kids would like it. Pin it in the hallway at home or in the office, with a box of art supplies nearby so people will occasionally stop to help out (and smell the scented markers). ...Read more

Gemma Box

It's a box, so what? Well, it is a box, and, at first glance, you'd think it's a solid block of wood. However, there's a bit of trompe l’oeil going on, and to those who know, the lid is held in place by a magnet, so there's little to hint it holds precious things inside. The Gemma Box is available in Large and Tall sizes and Oak or Ash ...Read more

Double Octahedron Ring Planter from Eric Trine

There's a Double Octahedron Ring Planter and I'm not going to tell you about it? Puh-lease. Technically these planter rings from Eric Trine are on pre-order, so you can't have them immediately (or, in four days, which is the usual shipping time). However, be patient and you'll enjoy some geometric fun with plants in just a few weeks. Note: these are planter stands only- they'll raise any ten-inch terracotta pot ...Read more
