Guuuummmmmy bears!! Bouncing here and there and every-wheeeerrrre…..Oh sorry.  I’m not sure if you have been introduced to the giant gummy bear yet, but I’m pretty sure this is the awesomest thing I’ve ever seen in my life.  My birthday is coming up and it would be pretty sweet to get one of these.  I’d then lock myself in a closet and stuff my grill for…I don’t know…27 days or so?

Prepare to drool:

convinced it couldn’t get any better than a giant gummy bear? Think again:  


ha.ha.ha. Thank you Vat19 gifts for such awesomness.

Happy “day I hate to spell”

P.S. If you’re not yet familiar with my loathing of spelling the word “Wednes…” (ew) click here)

P.S.S.  Gummy Snake.

Today would be a much happier day if it wasn’t Wednesday.  Oh wait, it’s Thursday.  THANK GOD.  I mean, it’s not like Wednesday is actually a bad day or anything.  In fact I felt fabulous yesterday!  It’s just that I really hate spelling the word “Wednesd….”.  Ew.  BLAH!  Why can’t it just be spelled like it sounds.  Why???

Anyway – not like this has anything to do with what I’ve been babbling about- here ya go!  I promised that there would be 5-lists for the rest of the week, and for today, I’m keepin’ that promise.  Here’s some pretty rad conversation pieces for your homestead - five of em’.  YEY!


Vintage Book Clocks  Find em’: here   (for $20 bucks & up):  Seriously check out this store. Whether your a slutty librarian, a regular librarian, or just your average person who has read a book or two, there are like, a ba-zillion varieties of book clocks waiting to be sold.  They are the awesomest.

Electric Blue Hippo Planter (find it:  here for $20 bucks).  There is no good reason why I find this so fascinating.  Hippos, although sorta-kinda cute in that “chubby baby” sorta way, are rather vicious creatures (thanks hot animal dude Dave Salmoni).  And, history suggests that I have never successfully grown a plant in my whole entire life.  Either way, I kinda-sorta need to have this like, yesterday.

Black Birdcage Lamp with Ceramic Socket (find it:  here for $45 bucks):  I am in love with this lighting and you can’t make me say anything more than that.  So there.  Buy this light (for me…).

Distortion Candlesticks (find em’:  here for $24 bucks ea.) These are so fun.  Alice & Wonderland meets Dr. Seuss and then they light a couple of candles and get all smoochy-like. Disco.

City Plates Collection / New Orleans, Las Vegas, Washington, D.C. & Dubai (find it: here for $180 bucks).  Holy cow, I love these plates.  The only problem is that they are like $45 bucks a plate.  And, unless I’m rich and totally forgot that I’m rich, I don’t see myself buying one or more $45 dollar plates anytime in the near future.  That doesn’t mean that you can’t buy them for me though.  And, when I say “you” I mean you Santa.  You are totally rich (and also quite handsome, I might add).

Ok, so that’s what I got.

Knock em’ dead!

See ya later.

Okay, bye.

Happy Friday fellow beer lovers!   If you didn’t get the memo, today is National Drink Beer Day and I’m already wasted!  Whoo hoo!  Just kidding.  I’m drunk with emotion, really.  As my diet doesn’t really allow for drinking beer until I pass out.  And, well..let’s be honest.  I haven’t gotten “wake up on your floor with a cracker in your mouth in a gorilla suit drunk” in forevs.  Nonetheless, I will be having a couple sippy-sips of my faves tonight in honor of this fabulous holiday and in memory of my wild and crazy youth.  Here’s 5 things I’m inspired by today:

RARE Recycled Beer Bottle Glasses made from Lips of Faith Tart Lychee and Le Terroir Beer Bottles by New Belgium Brewing:  Ladies.  There is no reason to be a savage when we are gettin’ our drink on.  These glasses make you feel like a sophisticated lush, which s totally acceptable Monday – Friday.    Find it:  here (for $30 bucks)






Six Pack of Beer  / Hipster Beer Sugar Cookies with Buttercream Frosting:  As if I wouldn’t include sweet sugary cookies in this list.  These beer bottle-shaped cookies are perfect for late night noshing.  And, they are shaped like beer, so it’s like you never stopped drinking.    Find yours: here (for $30 bucks)







porter beer-rings:  These.  Are. Awesome.  I hope the great pumpkin brings me 14 pairs for Halloween.  LOVE (oh, and they’re made from recycled beer bottle caps…) Sa-weeeeeeet!  Find em’:  here (for $20 bucks)






Periodic Table Element Black Beer Neoprene Can Cozy:  Contrary to popular belief, nerds, do in fact enjoy a libation hither and fro.  No seriously.  Nerds drink their faces off.  This is the perfect cozy for YOU, Mr. and/or Mrs. smarty pants.  Find it:  here (for $8 bucks)





BEER CAP FLOWER – “Bloom…” – Mixed Media Assemblage on Salvaged Wood (approx 5 1/4″ X 6″):  Um, who doesn’t love flowers and inspirational quotes made out of beer caps? Drink some Sam Adams while repeating the quote 5 times fast?  Drinking game.  Boom.  Find it:  here (for $24 bucks)






Drink responsibly my awesome loves!  Which means,  don’t even think about friending your ex-boss on Facebook later.  You’ll thank me in the morning.  Beer RULES!

Just kidding.  There is not a fly in my soup.  But, there could be an octopus in my coffee, thanks to the cutest and coolest cup making person-shop ever born, ever.


These absatootly adorable Creature Cups were born amid a bunch of Brooklyn area based designers (Holla to Brooklyn for producing some of my favoritest things, P.S). Anyway,  apparently these lil’ dudes were “crawling around” in their heads for quite some time until finally, one of them learned how to speak English and said “Hey awesome Brooklyn designer?  Please put me in a cup.”.  And, that was that.

OCTOPUS CREATURE CUP for around $15 bucks

Meet the Octopus. Creeping along the bottom of your cup, the Octopus is up to noooo good. He’ll be a little startled if you catch him, and who knows what he’s doing if you don’t.

I would like to catch him.  Under my Thanksgivingmas turkey or Christmas tree.

Find it:  here


CROCODILE CREATURE CUP for around $15 bucks

Meet the Crocodile. Lurking beneath the surface he silently emerges. Watch out. He snaps.

Ya know? This thing is so damn cute, I might let it bite my face off “just cuz”.

Find it:  here



They also have a super cute Sea Otter and Lobsta (available here).  And, if you can’t decide?  You can always by a set of 2 or the full set of 4 right here.

I can’t wait for Turkey Santa or regular Santa to bring these to me!  Yey!

Here’s a sneaky-peeky of what kinda stuff ya’ get:

1. Umami Roasted Nuts:  These nuts are a fab source of heart-healthy fats, and super-doop Umami (that means “yummy” for my non-Japanese readers).

2. Pistachio Power Clusters: It took everything I had not to eat this whole entire sweet & savory bag without letting the hub have a taste.  But since I’m not a total B-word, I saved him a couple.

3. Toasted Sesame Stix:  I’m eating these calcium rich sessy-stix as I type.  They’re fab.  Enough said.

4.Big Island Pineapple: When I opened the bag, that remake of “Somewhere over the Rainbow” by that Hawaiian guy with the insanely long name started playing.  Then, I unexplainabley began to hula-dance.  Aloha!

5.  Apple Orchards Granola:  I truly saved the very best for last.  I have never tasted granola that was as soft & chewy as an apple pie.  NatureBox?  Let’s start a serious relationship.  Like, yesterday.
