Nesting bookcase.

The more I look at them, the more I like them.

Dror Benshetrit has a new line of affordably-priced home furnishings at Target. We’re particularly impressed by this nesting bookcase, which adapts well to the demands of different spaces. A set of four open shelves is only $90, and the sets can be placed in groups to create larger shelving units or used as simple end tables.

Type-y nostalgia.

A few days ago, my pal Matt and I were chatting about the good ol' days of handmade band flyers. Band posters have become an amazing art form, but there's something just impossibly charming about a crazyass homemade poster/flyer like this. I love it.

Thanks, Matt (and Stan)!

Stephane Halleux's bots.

Wow. These are so cool, they're actually making me a little giddy.

The site does not do these justice. I wish he'd get rid of the Flash and just make the images bigger.

Diamantini & Domeniconi Striped Cuckoo Clock.

I would like one of these. So birdy and stripey and happy.

Designed in Italy from the famous clock manufacturers Diamantini and Domeniconi this is their latest design Cuckoo Clock. The Cuckoo Clock is hand made using coloured resin in fabulous stripes. It reminds me of the Paul Smith stripe design.

Charlie's Soap.

This is a weird one, I know, but bear with me.

I hate stainless steel sinks. Yet, I'm stuck with mine. If you're in the same boat, you should try this stuff. It's amazing. It's also great for cleaning your stovetop.

Our All-Purpose Cleaner can be used safely & effectively on a variety of surfaces. Non-toxic and completely biodegradable,Gets under grease and grime, gently releasing them without harsh abrasives.

p.s. I liked the laundry soap, too, until some asshat in my old apartment building stole it.

Ladles and jellyspoons, please check out the online journal of my favorite Milwaukee artist, dwellephant, aka Milan Zori.

I love his stuff. I own one of his too-cool masonite paintings which I'd be happy to show you if I hadn't forgotten my camera cord at work. Doh. Will upload later.

A little something different for your walls?

Methinks these uncut currency sheets will do the trick.

Gay? These $2 bills will make an awesome statement. :)

Cheese Paper.

Has anyone used this stuff. I feel like I should, if only to demonstrate that I love and care about cheese and want it to be with me always.

Finally, cheese storage is made simple! Formaticum sells cheese paper specifically designed to keep cheese fresh and delicious. Our two-ply cheese paper simulates the cheese cave environment.
