Skymall madness

Alright, I have a confession to make. I LOVE SKYMALL. I want that crazy hot dog toaster, or this sleeping lounge thing (pictured above and available at for $29.95), or maybe an automatic watch winder or upside down tomato garden. I get really excited everytime I fly to see what the good people at hammerkershlemmer have come up with for me. What's that? I need a wine robot now? AWESOME!!!

Monkeys galore

I couldn't resist putting up these happy little monkey dolls that are handmade by a woman in Australia. It appears that they are sold out for now, but she has a mailing list so if you like-y you should sign up!
Oh psst...if you want a monkey doll this holiday season let me know, my bestie (not beastie) Amy is making sock monkeys by hand and they are just as cute as these...promise.

Christmas craft part 2: Yoko style

Step one: Sharpen a pencil
Step two: Lay a cushion on the floor next to your tree for your guests to kneel on
Step three: Cut out an ornament shape from a white piece of paper
Step four: Using the sharpened pencil write "ho ho ho" on a small piece of paper as tiny as you can
Step five: Hang it at the very bottom of the tree using a decorative ribbon
Step six: Using another decorative ribbon, hang a magnifying glass next to your ornament
Step seven: Don't say anything to your guests about it. Those that crouch down to read the message are your super sophisticated guests. The rest wouldn't recognize art if they saw it.

If I had I chance I would "steel" this

"Whoa nelly" is what I said to myself when I saw this chic blackened steel necklace on Rare Device's website. They do such a nice job of choosing the grooviest goodies and keeping my credit card nice and hot! I wantie.

Holiday crafts for those with laundry machines

Ok, this is the best wallpaper EVER (must be in a wallpapery mood today...sorry)
I can only imagine this paper in my kitchen or boudoir or phone nook or like anywhere!
It can be purchased for only 360 Swedish Kroners here.

Some things go without saying

I personally LOVE all the stuff they have over at They do a great job of stocking must-haves such as ceramic mushrooms. They also have some really super jewelry like this leaf necklace which would make the BEST stocking stuffer (hint hint).
Great prices too!!!

Two words...

talking painting

Oh no she didn't!

Excuse me, but exactly when did Orla Kiely start a wallpaper line? I am really loving it, and had a hard time choosing from their excellent patterns to post a photo. Check out her stunning wallpaper designs here

Things I almost thought of

I like these, I think they look like something I might have made if I were just slightly more creative. Don't you hate when someone comes along and does something that you are pretty sure you were about to think of? Take these photos for example. Maybe if I hadn't been looking at so many wallets on the internet I would have thought of that! DURN!

Wallets are so snappy

GOOD GRIEF look at this gorgeous wallet!
I am a girl who believes that a person cannot have too many wallets. Ok, so that sounds crazy, but I tend to be hard on a wallet just so that I can get a new one. The day that the snap finally gives out is a fine day indeed in my household. I have wallets stockpiled just waiting for an extreme wallet failure such as this.
This wallet is from and I would have made a direct link to the site but I don't know how yet...bear with me!
