Rapper mugs hand painted by RoseAndCons. Get one of these up in your grill and the morning might just feel better.
I spotted this bike rack while walking around Shoreditch on Sunday. It’s designed to only take up the space of one car but provides lock-up space for 10 bikes. There are three of them in Hackney – and if they prove popular, the car will be replaced by permanent cycle parking and the bike racks will move on to new locations. Great idea – and a great way for people to visualise the positive impact cycling has on their environment.
I love these quirky Four Seasons spice shakers. Super clever and punny, they remind of of snow-domes, which are one my favourite things ever (the tackier the better).
Designed by Teerachai Suppametheekulwat, you can buy them online at the MoMA Store.
I recently rediscovered this in my pile of treasured ephemera. All grammar sins are completely forgiven upon examination of that fine and romantic haircut. Design skills indeed!
Long time CFS favourites Gaggle have released the first single from their new album From The Mouth Of The Cave is called Army Of Birds. Do what it says on the packet – watch full screen (change the settings to HD) and pop your headphones on. Lovely, and a little bit trippy.
This striking Stylist cover is made entirely of pretty foliage. The stats are just as impressive; it took 200 yellow carnations to make the centre of the flower, and 2100 roses! Published just in time for the Chelsea Flower Show, an event I very much wish I had tickets for.
There’s been quite a few adorable themed alphabets released lately! The other day Tessa sent me a link to this handsome pug-fest, illustrated by Bah Humpug. As a long time pug lover, it certainly makes me smile. Check out Humpug’s blog for more drawings ”of a grumpy girl and her pug… And sometimes her pug’s bunny”!
It’s funny how you can start collecting images without realising. I looked at my desktop and was surprised to see it filled with mint and pink. A refreshing combination.
A twist on ‘the glass is half full’, this moon glass takes my breath away. Made by Korean studio Tale, the Moon Glass has been designed to serve up milky rice wine or sake. As you sip, the moon wanes; leaving you with a half, then a crescent, then finally a new moon. Simply gorgeous.
I adore this tasty looking alphabet by Vidhya Nagarajan, especially her unusual and clever culinary choices. N for naan? Perfect! (By the way, I think Thom and I found the perfect East London curry last night – pillowy naans and onion bhajis as big as your fist. A feast for £18.60). M for Maldon almost glimmers, but my favourite of all the letters is the sweet little quail egg. See more of Vidhya’s work here.
