This Arbor House is made from recycled high density polyethylene (HDPE)- that translates into 24 recycled milk jugs- and thermally modified maple, and that means no maintenance. Several color variations available. -Made in ...Read more

This little guy is on sale, so snap it up if you thought or said 'Ooooo' with appreciation when seeing its delightful inner tube illumination.

Remember the Click & Grow Smartpot? It now has an accompanying Grow Light to further increase your chances of making your plants healthy and your thumb greener. It requires only 3 watts of energy and has a built-in timer pre-programmed to 16 hours of light and 8 hours of darkness. Do I need to point out that this light is more for winter months than summer?

Islita Armless Chair

In the market for outdoor furniture? Man, do you have my pity. It's hard to find the right sort of modern look when you go hunting in normal stores, and you'll see a plethora of teak and/or metal atrocities that will make you want to cry. Or maybe you do find the right sort of modern look, but you'll have to sell your liver car to pay for the ...Read more

Fab

The following post is sponsored by Fab. I don't know about you, but when Fab first started, I was a little addicted to checking it everyday. Then, I slowly weaned myself off, reminding myself that if I didn't look, I would be blissfully unaware of the everyday design steals. Now, after checking it again after weeks of restraint, I'm gob-smacked by the selection of items, some of which we've posted ...Read more

Musguard

If you ride a bike, you need a fender, and if you need a fender, you probably will like the Musguard, a removable, rollable, polypropylene bicycle fender. Simple as can be, the Musguard is lightweight (35 grams) and easily attached: unroll, fold the seam, and tighten the Velcro strap. Remove it whenever you want by undoing the strap and rolling up for storage (see what I mean by easy?). Now on ...Read more

Sand Containers

Do not, I repeat, do not underestimate the value of containers you look at and use everyday. Sure, a toothbrush or pen holder is meant for function, but there's no reason why it can't be a pleasure to look at as well. The Sand Containers are handmade from a mixture of natural stone powder with resin and a wood divider/lid to keep things put. I think they've won the ...Read more
