some new, some restock.

we've recently restocked on some of our favourites & brought in a few new goodies too. there's a lot in this post... feels like i'm over stuffing a turkey. 

remember these watering cans?  well now we've got 'em in sunny yellow. 

don't mind the pun, but really, truly, these bird feeders flew out the door last round.
 *a little more info on the products above can be found on our previous post: http://bit.ly/lI3Nw1
i have to say, i love these 'totem coasters'.  part of the MoMa collection, they stack one on the other, have a wood base and vibrantly coloured wool inserts. sold as sets of 4.

also part of the 'totem' collection, these natural beech wood votive holders allow you to stack them in a variety of heights and configurations. sold in sets of 3.
 
these playful fingerprint cufflinks are made of white gold-plated tin. 

this next round of products came in and out of the shop swiftly - we didn't have time to share them with you all!



"war is destructive and bombs take away lives. but these beautifully sculpted ceramic love grenade coin banks are designed and made to plant seeds for future growth and prosperity. convert your love to change and save it in "A Love Grenade" and donate it to those who are in need."
 

add some flowers/green plants and turn this peaceful bomb into a beautiful nurture for life.

"destructive military force is not the only way to resolve conflicts. let this Friendly Tank, made from ceramics, be a wiser and powerful tool in bringing peace by translating ideas into words and images."
 
all of the pieces above are part of Biaugust's cause, A.N.S.W.E.R. (Act Now to Stop War & End Racism)  partial proceed goes to support this.

now don't think we're getting all violent on you. i know there seems to be a theme emerging, but there's nothing to be afraid of here.  check out what the designers thinking: "here, weapons which may typically be viewed as symbols of violence are converted to tools for peace. our creativity and knowledge expressed through words and sketches are the best means to get our points across, not through force and/or violence - a strong message conveyed by the designer". 



these are some of our favourites!  made of pewter and ceramic, these animals are designed to balance on their nose and ears/horns when placed as a bottom. can be used as a shot glass, candle holder, paper weight or simply for d├ęcor. we just got in the moose and deer - feels very canadian. 

and lastly...
while it might look like a regular soda can, instead of aluminum they’re made from a biodegradable corn starch-like material called PLA. and while it’s safer for the environment when disposed of, these cans are designed to be used again and again. they’re actually double-wall insulated so they keep cold drinks cold and hot drinks hot, are microwave and dishwasher-friendly and even have a pop-up lid that looks just like a soda can ring pull.

phew!  i think that's it for now...hope to see you soon.
