2009 bubble calendar (fun)

do you have an ocd when it comes to bubble wrap? did you ever go to a birthday party when you were a kid and popping bubble wrap was one of the games, and you found it to be so much fun you tried to do it every chance you could, even when there was no party? ever saved shipping materials knowing full well you don’t need them, just so you could hear those delicious popping sounds?

um, that wasn’t me. i’m talking about a friend of mine.

anyway, here’s something my friend might like for next year, a very cool poster sized calendar with a bubble to pop every day! the popping is for kids but the clean graphic styling is quite adult if you ask me.

oh dear, i think i might smell a diy coming on…

find it for $29.99 at perpetual kid.


christopher jagmin tabletop collection

have you seen these fun graphic pieces for the table from phoenix-based christopher jagmin? bet you’ll still like them even if you have.

those glasses would come in handy at a cocktail party – just don’t buy a double set!

see more at chris’ website and check out his whimsical illustration style in his portfolio on his other website.


vintage scale wall hooks

I love it when you can hang a hook on the wall and even when there is nothing on it you still have something of visual interest up there. These early 20th century scale hooks are a fine example. Since they are cast brass reproductions they aren’t working scales, but I still think they’re pretty cool.

The set of 5 pieces is $69.95 and you can find them at Signals.


maramiki textiles

I mentioned Maramiki recently but I so enjoy Mara Snipes’ designs that I must write about them again. She’s just launched her new website for her beautiful textile designs for the home. I especially love the 2009 calendars with teal and purple inks printed on her crisp high quality linen that she’s added to her collection.

I wish I didn’t have tumbling tumbleweeds of dog hair flying around this place, I would be up to my ears in these gorgeous linens.

noa bembibre 2009 calendar

Hurrah, hurray and hurry — Noa’s back!

Many may duplicate, but I accept no imitations of the clever typographical style of Helsinki-based graphic designer Noa Bembibre. I think these calendars are truly special and if you do too then you might want to preorder now. Shipping of the 500 limited edition pieces begins on November 5th, 2008.

Big fan here.

Purchase the €32 calendar (about US $25 and an awesome holiday gift for your most visual/designy friends), and see more of Noa’s work on her website. You can also buy the calendar online at the Curiosity Shoppe,  Present and Correct, the Cooper-Hewitt Museum shop and MOCA LA.
