Turn old greeting cards into a book
Send in greeting cards and postcards folks have sent to you and get a book back. (There's an option to get all the originals back.) As a hoarder of such things, this intrigues me, and has a tiny vibe of Nick Bantock’s Griffin & Sabine.
Beflo Standing Desk
I would consider trading in my desk for this beauty.
Ghost Golf Belts
I don't golf, but I love the notch-less belt I got here. I count it among my better investments in life. (Got the “Bubba” but they have oodles of variants.)
Frank Lloyd Wright Racine Collection
Steelcase is opening up orders on a line of desks and chairs re-imagined from Frank Lloyd Wright designs. On all my trips to FLW places, furniture was scaled for shorter folks and frankly, not comfortable. The pieces are not boring though.
Customize a Hawaiian shirt with your pet
A convergence of things I appreciate very much
Hasbro Selfie Series
It's pricey ($60), but just the fact that it's possible to get a good 3D scan from a phone and get an action figure made is really neato. It'll get cheaper.
Golden Gate Bridge in type
Lovely letterpress print by Cameron Moll coming soon. Pre-orders of the limited edition open now.
The New Walden
A hardcover edition of Thoreau’s book, annotated, designed and illustrated.
Snakes of Wrath
Young Jerks sure can build momentum. This is one of the most striking landing pages for a future Kickstarter game I've seen.
Jean Jullien Monograph
I'd display this book with the cover exposed. It's so delightful. And then there's the insides!
Whimbrel Stamp Alphabet (and font)
Alex Tomlinson developed a font based on a 1940's Bird Lore magazine and a set of stamps to boot.
National Parks Poster
by Steve Wolf Designs. Dig.
Every Day Goal Calendar
Simone Giertz has a new store and one of the products is this electronic goal tracking calendar that was previously a Kickstarter project. She also has a fun white puzzle and some other items of note!
Hyundai IONIQ 5
Need to pay off my current ride and drive it for many more years. But I like to dream of what the next vehicle will be and this new EV from Hyundai presses a lot of buttons (and kept a few important controls as real knobs).
TX-6 Field Mixer
I have little idea what this device does, but I want to press all the buttons, slide all the sliders and turn all the knobs. I also want Teenage Engineering to build a car.
The latest version of their electric bike, with better visibility, security, powertrain and design.
This long dreamed about VW moves (slowly) into production (for Europe). The front design is busy, but the rest of the package is compelling.
Charley Harper’s Cool Carnival
Celebrate the Year of the Tiger or a certain football team going to a Super Bowl.

A Grand Unified Theory of Buying Stuff
Lots of links to this piece by Paul Ford for good reason: the payoff at the end is inspiring when we consider experiences we hope to achieve when buying stuff.
606 Universal Shelving System
Fell down a rabbit hole and filing this away as I'd not heard of Vitsœ before (but I'd certainly seen this shelving many times). Fodder for dream space. Design by Dieter Rams in 1960.
NightWatch Magnifying Clock Dock
I already have enough clocks and a charging solution for my watch. But if I didn't I'd totally consider this beauty. / via smartpeopleiknow
West Elm Mid-Century Desk
There are a ton of configurations for this workstation. It's over-priced with veneer wood, but it inspires me to dig around some second hand shops to find something scuffed up
Luka TV Stand
My friend SwissMiss loves this piece dearly and I must say, it's a lovely twist on a TV stand.
A contemporary twist on a cuckoo clock that features field recordings of real birds and goes to sleep at night.
Carta Bench by Burrow
This will be the first of many links where I gather ideas for home furnishing. Sorry if you came for cool stuff. I don't use Pinterest and I don't plan to start.
Tattly expands beyond temporary tattoos to these repositionable vinyl stickers by artists, illustrators and designers.
I feel like I could (happily) complete this puzzle by Vratislav Pecka
Sadly, this camper truck concept is not real. But I can dream.
A new brand of puzzles that capture a vibe. Keen packaging to boot. / via UnderConsideration's BrandNew
This link is potentially dangerous. Online store for plants with self-watering ceramic pots.
Everyone is Awesome
A new Lego set coming in June
A hydroponic stand to grow food indoors. Self watering and self fertilizing with optional lights. My friend Lindsay has one of these and loves it. Comes in a variety of sizes.
Going beyond recycling with a guide to zero waste practices and a trove of links to resources for shopping in bulk and composting to boot. / via DJ
Cube Portable BBQ
This is a pretty fine looking charcoal BBQ. / via Kathryn
Little Goat Recipes
I've been to Little Goat in Chicago a few times and it is incredibly good. I want to buy all their seasonings and try every single one of these recipes. Magic Green Beans.
Auto-Converting Optimus Prime
Of course there is a big kid inside me that marvels at the level of miniaturization that makes this possible. The adult version can wait a decade for when it doesn't cost 700 dollars.
Geometric felt tiles for the wall that add visual interest and dampen acoustics. Preset designs, all customizable and reasonably priced compared to commercial options. / via Joe Mesa
Everybody Tissue Box
I feel like this Dusen Dusen tissue box holder would make any room a little better.
