I love the growing trend of using wood in unexpected ways. It’s so earthy and manly.
CanvasPop takes your photos and turns them into custom canvas art. They’ll work with images of any resolution meaning you can even send them your iPhone snapshots, and they connect easily with Facebook, Flickr, and other social networking sites. There are a variety of filters to enhance your image if you want, too, and they’ll send you a digital proof to OK everything once you’re done. They also have a team assembled to talk you though it if you need help. Available in tons of sizes.
Aged Goat Cheese Sampler, $22
Four types of delicious raw goat cheeses. I would not share.
from Foodzie’s Krugerrand Farms
I still like brewing my coffee the complicated way via French press, but I know a lot of people who have these and the coffee is not too bad. It’ll get you out of the house faster in the morning for sure.
Recycled Cassette Tape Necktie, $60
Ties out of fabric made from recycled audio tape. Perfect for a hip audio guy – hey, I know one of those!
Home Beer Kit, $40
The glass bottle and quality ingredients make this way better than a Mr. Beer kit from a home goods store. And the owners are CUTE! They’re this week’s Hey Brooklyn.
Feather ornament, $10
Ceramic feather ornaments you can keep around all year long. I buy a special ornament every year, and I think this is mine for 2009.
Lego keychain, $5
Pretty much the greatest keychain ever, right?
Available in tons of colors.
O’Keeffe Necklace, $48
Amber would love this!
Hemp Collar, $20-$25
My trio loves their EarthDog harnesses. I wish I sprung for a collar for Tino instead – he’s so wiggly trying to get him into a harness for a walk! I like this one with stars on, but there are tons of solid and printed styles to choose from.
