Stuff that’s so awesome it hurts, Vol. 19


I just got back from vacation, so I apologize for my lack of posts last week. But I’m going to try to make up for it by treating you right with this week’s volume of awesomeness. Also, and completely inadvertently, everything in this volume is black and white.

1. Cynthia Jones Lava Fling Necklace.  The beads in this necklace are made of lava! That’s pretty cool. Or should I say hot? Ha.

2. Tub of Plastic Executives. I can think of a lot of great games I can play with these mini corporate fat cats. It’s like little green Army men, but instead it’s little suited executives. I’m happy to see that there’s at least one woman in this set, but why are they all white?

3. Lara Tote in Black and Cream Damask by Anne Marie Beard. This great tote is from *annemarie*’s Eco Chic collection (as seen on her Etsy shop). Anne Marie is an Austin-based bag designer and her creations are really fantastic.

4. Newport News Ankle Strap Sandal. So I really love the shoes at Newport News. They’re surprisingly stylish and ridiculously affordable. This particular pair looks so glamorous, but they only cost $34! Newport News does a good job keeping up with trends and creating some interesting, sometimes even edgy, styles. So what if Hayes calls it the “Cougar Store”?

Table Clock Books from Eurway.  Is this a set of books? Or is it a clock? This “deceptive” clock (really, deceptive? Is anyone actually going to be confused by this?) masquerades as a trio of books, perfect for your bookcase or desk. It’s certainly not the most accurate timepiece I’ve ever seen, but it’s still pretty cool.

Okay, that’s all for this week. I hope you enjoyed it!
