I'll take you there

Beautiful, beautiful transportation typographic maps by Fadeout Design.

The SF one is actually BART, not MUNI. (I mean it's the cross-bay light rail commuter system, not the bus/tram system of the city.) It's a little misleading. Still beautiful, though.

I heart robots

So I went into CB2 to get this.

It's a shower curtain with pastoral scenes of robots. Totally up my alley.

Anyway, CB2: it's such a dumb name (sorry Crate&Barrel - but your regular name is dumb too) and that stopped me from being interested in it before. But there were some things that appealed.

But my favorite was in the theme of "things that look like things that are those things but not really":

I am just the right age for this. I remember how fun it was pulling tape out of cassettes, and how delightfully wrong it felt. Now it's right!


I think CB2 spelled Verity Freebern's name wrong...

High five

I really like the bags Threadless is doing - the long strap and short handles are great. My favorite.

One hand in my Poketo

I had a bag from Poketo that I loved. (Still love. Unfortunately a toddler dragging it down the sidewalk didn't really make it any better.)

But I digress from my main point, which is that Poketo has fun stuff.

Goodies from the new IKEA catalog

I really like IKEA. I mean, yeah, it's not heirloom quality but there have been many, many times in my life when "saving up for an investment piece" was really not advice I could take.

And I like the design. Not everything (hate their florals) but many things. I like IKEA green! I like that the children's toys are cheap and conform to EU standards for chemicals.

I also secretly wish an IKEA room planning person would come to my house and show me how to fit a family of sixteen into my living room.
