I wonder how one could make these gluten-free and sugar free and food-color-free….

My favorite:

Who says that Josh Spear is the only cool hunter. I wandered into the Spotted Magpie a few weeks ago while moseying down Oxford St, heading back to Sydney. (See tall building in background? That’s Sydney..Australia. Note also the car driving on the left side of the road? Okay then.)

With a sign like this, the store could be anything.

Outside the door there are rolls and rolls of oilcloth, one more fun and fabulous than the next. And inside is a collection of whimsical, practical, deco, retro and joyful new and not-so-new decorative items for the home.

After chatting with the owner, Mary, for a minute I recognized and American twange (yep, Ohio..) behind her Aussie accent.

Great store, creative owner who is also an interior designer- well, duh!  She can decorate my house- fun, fun, fun! My friend, T, would get a real kick out of this store. Mary says:

“The idea behind Magpie is that, like a bird, we collect things here and there to create our own unique nest. We normally don’t go into it with a big master plan – we pick up things along the way, we bring back souvenirs from when we travel, we collect mementos from our lives, and are given, for better or worse, things that reflect the taste of those we love.”

I bought a little oilcloth apron as a house gift for Lela (2 years old). Too cute:

 

New Study on Cats and Boxes

November 14, 2010

Basic truth: all cats love boxes, bags and curling up on your best sweater and kneading it so that pulls. Why? Do they want to return to the womb? Are they nesting? Do they know how cute they are and it is purely for human entertainment? Watch and come to your own conclusion.

Check it out, kids.

Get ready for some thrills and chills this winter… it’s time to bring on the hills with quirky’s new Snow Shredder. The Snow Shredder is the ultimate in winter sleds, comfortably fitting two kids, aged six and up, in its roomy seating area.

Here’s what makes this sled so cool:
– A headlight in the front of the sled, with an easy on-off button, allows for fun night sledding
– A retractable handle makes it easy to carry the sled uphill for your next ride
– A steering wheel up front lets YOU take control of your ride, while three adjustable steering wheel heights allow you to cruise in comfort
– Extra handles are located in the back of the sled for the backseat sledder to hold onto (it can get scary back there!)

This sled is made of polypropylene. Its over-all dimensions are 60in x 21in x 12in, and the seating area is 39in x 17in x 6in.

You can buy this limited edition sled at Quirky.com, the cool site where you can submit ideas for products, influence products being developed and earn money doing it and shop for new and innovative products developed by users like you, at quirky.com.

Scary, but Fun, Sleepover

January 24, 2010

Who wouldn’t love to spend a night sleeping over at the Museum of Natural History?  I have always thought about those empty, high-ceilinged and echoey hallways once the museum-goers and guards leave for the day. I know people who have a fear of being locked into the library or the furniture store or the museum after hours….  One of the books I read to the kids when they were small was From the Mixed-Up Files of Mrs. Basil E. Frankweiler by E. L. Konigsburg (New York: Atheneum, 1967). It a wonderful story: A brother and a sister run away and hide in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. A Newbery medal winner.

I think the inspiration for this fabulous giant sleepover date at the Museum of Natural History has to be the film, A Night At The Museum. I wonder if I can set up a night for adults?
