Friday Link Hootenanny :: Cool Stuff to Browse

1. HER ROYAL CRAFTINESS.

Who doesn’t love a good crown? You immediately feel fabulously regal…walk a little bit taller. Whereas diamonds can be a bit passe, these custom felt ones from uffdadesigns are the royal bomb. Colorful, quirky and cool.

2. I LOVE AN OLDER MAN.

The concept is simple: “where early photography meets extreme hotness.” Oh my. Now this is a site I can get behind. Dashing has never looked so clever…Check out My Daguerreotype Boyfriend. How handsome are these fellas??

{psst,  just in case you didn’t know, a daguerreotype was one of the first commercially successful photographic processes!}

3. I’M A BAG LADY.

I love the iconic Hermes Birkin bag. I do not, however, love the $18,000 price. So when I saw these tongue-in-chic tromp l’oile canvas bags from Thursday Friday, I was grinning! It’s a boxy, cool canvas shopper silk screened  on all sides to resemble it’s more spendy counterpart. I have the red birkin. The new line is a version of a classic miu miu bag. They raised the prices (they were $49 when I got mine) but I can say it’s a very rad bag.

4. FRESH AS A DAISY DRESSES

I didn’t have bridesmaids at my wedding….but if i did, i think this line from Soho Mode Vintage is such a fun alternative to the classic gown. The lovely Louise crafts each dress by hand from vintage textiles. LOVE!

 

5. AT LEAST IT’S CHEAPER THAN THE BIRKIN.

This chair is major. Now if only i had a huge yard in which to hang it. Oh yeah and an extra $8k lying around. Sign. Fie, Cocoon chair by MOROSO.

6. I LOVE LISTS.

The adorable Molly came up with the most fabulous list of fun things to do this summer! Check out her list of  25 great things to do this summer and then work on making up your own!

7. STATE OF EUPHORIA

So you say you’ll be road tripping this summer? Why not start a new collection with your kiddos? State souvenirs can be so fun….cups, pins, magnets, mugs. State souvenirs can be a great reminder of a fun holiday!

8. SOCK IT TO ME.

There are socks, and then there are these crazy awesome over-the-knee numbers. From Minga Berlin. Organic cotton. Funky patterns. Wow. Also regular sock size.

9. SILLY BATH TOWEL FOR YER LITTLE BOO.

I know I’m a few months early….but this ghost towel just cracked me up! I think kiddos everywhere would love it. But you could probably make your own with a pair of scissors, eh?

10. SPLIT PERSONALITY

This little video is so very clever….and all shot on a cell phone.

    i look at that moroso chair and can’t help but think, “family project.” the busying of idle hands.
