Artori Design has come up with a novel bookend concept (some of us still have paper books!) that gives your volumes a superhero lift


Magnets and wall mounted floating shelves help create this awesome illusion.


What superhero would you want in your library?

Stunning Water Conservation Faucet

Posted in design, home with tags , on April 12, 2015 by shewalkssoftly

London Royal College of Art student Simin Qi has designed a gorgeous faucet that not only conserves water by 15%, but flows with captivating lattice patterns that look like intricate blown glass.



You can even choose between three patterns of water flow:

Would you like this in your home?


Naomi Kizhner: Energy Addicts

Posted in design, jewelry, macabre with tags , , on September 17, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

Naomi Kizhner has designed a parasitic series of jewelry. These creatures of metal and glass (in theory) feed off the energy of those who wear them via pincers that reach through the body into the spine where they draw upon electrical nerve conductivity.


The line will not be going into actual production (I’d say this is fairly obvious, but one never knows in this society. Most of us already encounter plenty of welcome parasitism from mass produced objects).

Starstuff Clothing

Posted in clothing, design, fashion, space, wish list with tags , , , , on May 28, 2014 by shewalkssoftly

I am SUCH a sucker for galaxy print clothing (or galaxy printed ANYTHING I guess). Starstuff Clothing now has a kickstarter campaign to vastly expand their range of items and significantly lower the price.


The company designs T-Shirts, Dresses, Tank Tops & Socks that feature the natural splendor of the Universe itself. They only use real celestial images, and the result is excellent. Even better, the threads themselves are dyed in their process, so these products don’t contain the characteristic stiffness of some printed shirts (I’ve certainly ordered a few from other companies and been sorely disappointed by that!).


I really look forward to seeing the ladies’ t-shirts and dresses!

Beep Art

If you are into bold domestic expression, Beep Art might have something for you.

This was the image that brought me to their site (I am a sucker for mid century atomic design, though I’m NOT generally “bold” in a brightly colored wall sort of way):


These are some of the more eye catching, unique wall details out there, for sure.


They also make great retro inspired laptop/ipad/etc. skins.

Spine Vodka

Posted in anatomy, craft, design with tags , , on September 12, 2013 by shewalkssoftly

Johannes Schulz created a vodka bottle with a 3 dimensional spine and ribcage running through it.


The product is intended to represent the drink “having a real spine to it.” But I think it’s a great design, no matter what the bottle contains.

Bat Pegs All Purpose Clips

Posted in design, halloween, home, wish list on April 6, 2013 by bettiemuldoon

Posted by proxy from Dana’s “stuff to blog” queue while she is on medical hiatus. She reads and appreciates all comments…and apologizes for not being able to respond at the moment.

You’ll be hangin’ out the washin’ on the Siegfried Line in style with these great “Bat Pegs” (those are clothes pins, if you misplaced your Anglican Converter.) No doubt a “Dana Wish List” item, and something we all need to liven up laundry day.




**Please, dear readers, send Good Thoughts, Positive Energy, Prayers, and ANY means of conveying support and healing to Dana. THANK YOU! The Proxy Blogger**
