Munching on Helvetica

I want these! Helvetica cookie cutters by artist Beverly Hsu. She is currently looking into making more cookie cutters to sell, so check her site for updates.

Head Trip

I admit that I am a lightweight when it comes to hard liquor, red wine being my choice of spirits but seeing this Crystal Head Vodka bottle may change my mind. Even if I never drink it, my occasional guest might enjoy tasting vodka from this crystal skull bottle. Produced by Dan Aykroyd, which makes it even stranger.


Living in a house that is almost 90 years old means lots of things don’t exactly work the way they were intended to, such as doors swinging closed on their own. The Stoppy doorstop which looks like a cartoon apostrophe and comes in a rainbow of colors is a wonderful way to keep pesky doors open with style. $6.99, available at Bed, Bath & Beyond, Office Max and the Container Store.

Measurement Totems

A wonderful typographic ode to the yardstick, on steroids. Whether you have growing children in the house or simply love typographic objects as much as I do, these MeasureMe Sticks from Studio 1AM are simply fab. I could see it mounted in my studio and also guess I could check the slow process of shrinking as I get older and older which has already started.

The Bauer Pet

It was love at first sight seeing these re-issues of Bauer Pottery’s 1930 cat and dog bowls with simple vintage typography. I doubt my cat will appreciate the cool style and reminder of his species but I certainly do! Available from the delightful e-shop Ancient Industries, $25-30.00.

Getting My Mojo Back

After a very long break from blogging I think I've finally got my mojo back. It's all Twitter's fault. Between working, the holidays and this new-found addiction for social media my poor blog has suffered. Damn that little blue bird! (Photo of Black Cat Juju from New Orleans)
