Boon LAWN Countertop Drying Rack


There is no doubt of my love for Boon’s Grass Drying Rack – except that lately not everything I need to dry fits on our cheery little patch of BPA-free drying “grass.”  Clearly Boon heard the cry from parents who have little hungry hippos and are always drying bottles – because the grass has turned into a Lawn!  This is great as we slowly venture into solids and have even more utensils to dry.  Also, Evie’s 8oz glass bottles will nestle so much easier on a larger space…no more balancing acts and piling of nipples!

Old News


Since our daughter was born I fear our Sunday ritual of combing through the New York times has been temporarily suspended, thus creating quite a pile of unread newspapers (we get the Denver Post too) which are gathering on various surfaces around our house. Solution? This stylish, functional, and smart newspaper collector aptly titled “Old News” by uber cool Swedish design collective, Creatables.  Bring on the Sunday funnies!

Ecoist Snowjob Chair


ecoist is a great company who makes super stylish fashion accessories from, well, basically trash.  They collaborate with big brands like Coca-Cola, Aveda, Frito-Lay and Disney to secure their mis-printed and obsolete packaging and then fold them up into innovative products.

This is another brand I’ve sold in the past. ecoist has been around since 2004…before the big “green products” boom that hit the market in ’07;  I think they really know what they’re doing, and I’m thrilled they’ve been able to thrive for so many years. (Fun fact: Kim Cattrall’s character toted a silver “Mega” ecoist bag in Sex & The City 2, which was an absolutely terrible sequel, but the clothes were still good!)

This chair, however.  WOW.  Now, I have a thing for chairs, so I am easily impressed, but you’d have to have a cold heart not to see the beauty in their latest collaboration with designer Emiliano Godoy.

Glad to see they’re looking at new ways to use those candy wrappers.  What’s next a couch? A headboard maybe?  Guess we’ll have to wait and see…
