Kid Basix Safe Sippy Cup

Ok. So I know I said that I have an obsession for sippy cups. So where is this so called "OCD" I claim to have? Well, let's start here and I will have one every week to share with all of you who read double-sided tape. All 2 of you :).

The Safe Sippy has a medical grade stainless steel body with removable handles. It features a straw shaped spout and non-toxic silicone no-leak valve. It holds 11 oz.

Order here.

Thank you for this wonderful find.

Emma Smart

I'm inspired by this girl... Emma Smart. Her work is compelling and makes you want to create something.

Pictobrowser - test

I'm testing this thing for potential use for my online portfolio. Let me know what you think...

Barack Barrettes ::

Not only are these barrettes fashion forward, but they definitely show support for Obama! Check out the designer's name. Really close to Myra Greenlee no?
Here's a link to her etsy site.

Thanks to the SCOOP for this post.

Veggie Grill

Veggie Grill... Coming to the Irvine Spectrum – November 2008. My eyes lit up when I saw that! Their menu is made of delicious specialties that are rich in protein and other nutrients; and free of cholesterol, animal fat and transfat. I have to say that it's all about the Santa Fe Crispy Chicken Sandwich and Sweet Potato Fries. If you can't wait until November, they have 2 other locations.

Fat Rabbit Farm

I went to the LA County Fair, I'm used to seeing the same thing. But lo and behold, this caught my eye and I had to tell you guys about them. Fat Rabbit Farm. "Inspired by their lovable, fat, and fluffy bunny named Babee, designers Jason Ponggasam and Patty Variboa molded together their passion of design. From the ideas, to the illustrations, hand screening, and shipping and packing, our products are 100% created by Babee, Jason, and Patty." They have the cutest characters and I wish I could work with them! Maybe I'll buy something from them first :)

John Derian at Target

Typography and kitchenware. What a wonderful combination.

Buy it here.

Lisa Makes

I've been envious of this girl since I found out that she had a gocco machine! I have one, but it's still in the box. I know. I know. Shame on me.

Check out her blog.

What I Want Right Now...

I keep going back to Urban Outfitters to find this lovely bag. I'm obessed with it right now. It's the perfect size and it could even fit a bottle and an extra change of clothes for the Michaela in it! I'm getting it real soon.

Snails Crochet Kit

How fun would it be to make this! Crocheting totally reminds me of my mom and grandma and how they both taught me how to crochet. I used to carry a bag of yarn when I was kid and crochet scarves. This is a bit advanced for me, but I'm willing to give it a try.

You can purchase the kit here.
