Be Nice Tea Towel x David Shrigley

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...Read more

Little Sun Diamond

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. For the 1.1 billion people without electricity worldwide, it's a welcome alternative to more polluting options (like kerosene lanterns). And, you'll be happy to hear, with every Little Sun Diamond you purchase, another is delivered and...Read more

Sunday Sofa

Sunday Sofa

Sort of like sweatpants for your living room, it'll keep you comfortable while signaling you give approximately zero forks what other people think of you. Just kidding, this sofa isn't nearly that bad... but it does look that comfortable. -Kiln-dried American hardwood frame -77% Cotton / 13% Polyester blend upholstery Above: Sunday 82" Sofa, $2,799.00...Read more

Michelle Rondelli Cotton Blanket

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? Michelle Rondelli's super fine cotton blankets are tough enough to use outdoors at the beach, but soft enough to keep near the sofa, your reading chair, or at the foot of the bed. Fun...Read more

5 Sconces under $150

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...Read more

Painted Oak Stools

Painted Oak Stools
Maybe you can go chop down a tree, take off all the bark, then paint it and add a sturdy woven cotton handle, but some of us have other things to do. Plus, when these stools are less than $100 and made from sustainably harvested oak, it's awfully hard to resist such affordable seats. Includes a gray felt seating pad. Made in Lithuania from sustainably harvested oak. Each piece is...Read more

Anker 15W Dual USB Solar Charger

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...Read more

Houston Flood

Houston Flood
No posts today, as it seems in bad taste to talk about stuff to admire and/or buy when Houston is flooding. Sorry. If you're in Houston, stay safe. If you're not in Houston, maybe take a moment to be thankful you're not dealing with flooded roads/businesses/homes, power outages, and possible drinking water shortages.
