And Just Like That It Is Friday

Time to go out and have a nice picnic! Well, as soon as designer Michael Jan gets around to making his portable folding Napkin Table a reality, that is. Until that time I guess we will just have to eat on the ground with the ants.

Google Branches Out Into Coffee Mugs

Google Logo Coffee Mug Promotional Novelty 11 Oz by Go Banners

Google’s reach is everywhere. Soon we will all be carrying around Nexus tablets and smartphones, wearing Google Glass… and drinking from Google mugs.

The Google Logo Coffee Mug Promotional Novelty 11 Oz by Go Banners is a basic coffee mug with the Big G’s stamp of approval (or at least their stamp). No word yet if a matching coffeemaker that doesn’t do evil, remembers your coffee history and tells you where you are going will become available.

***Update 7/11/2013*** No surprise. The “Google Mug” was pulled from Amazon!

Get Your Gravity Right Here For Only $124.95!

Starbucks Premium Pour-Over Brewer

Using a dripper to make a make a mighty fine cup of pour-over coffee is about as old-school as it gets. Using the Starbucks Premium Pour-Over Brewer to brew said cup, not so much. Sure it looks nice, but does it look $100+ nice? Maybe — eye of the beholder and all that. But the question still remains: how does anyone afford Starbucks coffee after purchasing it?

Product Description:
Bring beautiful, functional design into your home with this Premium Pour-Over Brewer, handmade by Darin Montgomery, founder of Seattle-based urbancase, a furniture and product design studio. Made from Corian solid surface material and domestic walnut, this elegant pour-over brewer reflects the aesthetics and functional design principles that contribute to living – simply – well. The single-serving ceramic pour-over cone regulates water flow to allow for the full extraction of coffee flavors. The cone sits on top of the handmade brewer stand while your favorite mug or tumbler fits underneath. With proper care and maintenance, this premium brewer should bring years of use. Ceramic cone is dishwasher safe. — Important Care Information: Do not immerse in water. Clean with a damp sponge. A mild detergent may be used. Corian is maintenance free but the walnut will require some care. Over time the oil/wax finish will need to be refreshed. Use a food-grade penetrating oil available at most kitchen stores. Avoid using vegetable oils.

Vegetabrella Shines When It Rains

Tokyo Noble Vegetabrella

Nothing brightens up a meal like a fresh salad. The same could be said for rainy days… as long as you have a Vegetabrella on hand. From their Facebook page:

The Vegetabrella is an umbrella that looks like a Romaine lettuce. It was designed by Yurie Mano and is produced by Tokyo Noble – a company specialized in the production of umbrellas. Each Vegetabrella is handmade by Tokyo artisans.

Now come on how cool is that? As in cool and crisp like the salad veggie you know always wanted to impersonate!

You can pick one up here if you are from Japan, and you can get the Vegetabrella here if you are not.

Sterling Home Utensil Holder

Sterling Home Utensil Holder

Usually one tries to not mix dirty utensils with clean ones. Ah, but rules are meant to be broken. Hey, those bent forks and ugly spoons need a place to go, don’t they? At least the Sterling Home Utensil Holder thinks so. The little utensil vase features fused flatware used in a decorative manner, but if the thought of tarnished utensils mingling with sparkling silver gets you down, the thing could always be used as a candle holder. As for what gets melted down first–the wax or the holder–well, that’s up to you.
