Chewbacca Plush Backpack


I have to say, I am a huge fan of Star Wars. Not the kind that goes to Star Wars conferences and dresses up in Star Wars gear at every opportunity. I had an older brother who made we watch it when we were growing up. I blame it on him!

I am not sure whether I think this backpack is super cool, or crossing the line into weird. Sure it functions as a quality backpack, but it also looks like you are carrying a small hairy child on your back.

Definitely fun and it would be quite the conversation starter, but how practical is it really?

Moss Pencil

Moss Pencil

When I was a child, I had a pencil that looked like a real stick. I thought it was so cool that it actually wrote! Here is one step up, the Moss Pencil by designer sirampuch eamumpai of Thailand.

Ok, so it’s not real moss. It’s actually just green flocking, but that’s still fun, right? I suppose it would sharpen like a regular pencil…For $11 it seems a bit pricey for a fuzzy pencil.

Hands-Free BrimLight

This BrimLight is such a great idea. It clips to the underside of your hat and provides hands free light!

Five LED lights provide light for many hours and the battery life is up to 40 hours long. This is just a smart solution to hands free lighting and for $17.95 it definitely seems worth it.

State of the Art


I’ve only had a couple of license plates in my short life, but for some reason I have kept them all. They are neatly packed away in a box of junk. My love for license plates may be why I think this State of the Art Reclaimed License Plate Map is absolutely amazing.

A bit pricey, but this obviously is a time intensive piece of art. Each state is made out of it’s respective state’s license plate. It reminds me of a Where’s Waldo picture, there is just so much to look at in this map! I love it!

Diamond Dust Earrings

Diamond Dust Earrings

Need some extra BLING for the holidays? These unique earrings may be just what you are looking for….

Particles of industrial diamonds are shown off in these quartz crystal earring drops. I’m not a big fan, because it just looks like gold glitter. But if you do like this concept, check out the matching necklace.

Mobiles by Julie Frith

Simple, yet a piece of art, these Mobiles by Julie Frith are quite eye-catching. They come in a variety of shapes and sizes, and a range of prices.

Where exactly would you hang these pieces of art? Anywhere you want to add an extra bit of jazz; hallways, above dining tables, baby rooms, table art, etc. The possibilities are endless.
