I grew up with a mother with an interest in Asian art. I really loved the Japanese pieces my mom would get. This beautiful Japanese Wave Pattern Bowl is such a great piece, I'm just drawn to it. This one is $30 at L.L. Townley Ceramics.
I thought this was a cool way to recycle old denim jeans. I think this Denim Pockets Rug is way cool. It's all recycled pockets from old jeans stitched together to make this rug. Prices start at $29 for a 2' by 3' rug. Other sizes available at Home Decorators Collection.
When I saw this onesie, I totally LOLed and immediately started making a list of all my nerdy friends who need one for their nerdy offspring. I think it would make a great baby shower gift, maybe with a box set of the show for all those sleepless nights. Possibly the best onsie I have ever seen. $17.95 at Neatoshop.
Here's a good looking Frankenstein's Monster painting. And it's postcard sized, so you won't have that staring at you, all life-sized, while you eat breakfast.It's an original, it's a watercolor and it would be a great little gift for that monster movie fan you know. $35 at Scott Christian Sava's shop on etsy. Take a look around, there's a lot of fun pop culture-y stuff there.
I am sure I only love this statue because it is so insanely ridiculous. The size of it, the cost of it, the very idea of it...all ridiculous. And yet...if had that $8,499 to just toss away, it would look stunning in my back yard. $8,499 at Design Toscano, of course.
This art print is available in a number of sizes and formats. You can even get it on a t-shirt. I just think it's a sharp, yet still cute, design that would look equally great on a kid's bedroom wall or a comic fan's office wall. $17.68 for a mini-print at society 6.
I know very little about Transformers. I know less about Hitch Plugs. But I do know geeks, nerds and fans and I know they will take their obsessions everywhere with them. I think a hitchplug will go pretty far to prove that. I also know that the Autobots are the good guys and that if I had posted the Decepticon, I would have gotten a lot of grief from the nerds I know. $52.99 for preorder at Big Bad Toy Store.
I LOVE THIS SHIRT! And if you don't watch Doctor Who, let me help you out....See there's this library planet, but there's no one there...and then some explorers...shadows....too many shadows...Donna in another dimension...vashta nerada...RIVER SONG! DAVE! Get it? Hmmm, yeah, it's a tough one, but let me assure you, Doctor Who fans know what this all means and there's a really good chance that they will like it. $12 at Coast City Shirts.
I was trying to find something unique by searching for "Angry Birds" and found this great print. with Not So Angry Birds. It's got all the "angry birds" calm, cool and collected as they would be before any green piggies came along. I love the bright colors too. This print can be found at Alice's Studio for $20
Smoker bags are an easy, mess-proof way to smoke meats, fish and veggies on a grill or in an oven. Wood chip flavoring is already inside this tri-level bag. When you're done cooking, just toss the bag. Comes in Alder (for fish) or Hickory flavoring. $4.95 at Spoon Sisters
This whiteboard had me laughing even before I knew it was from the...unusual mind of Brandon Bird. He of the rather odd art featuring pop culture icons in ways you'd never before considered. Give Henry Rollins the tattoos YOU think he should have. Sadly, there is no rear view, so tramp stamps will remain imagined. $20 at Topato Co.
This is an odd one, I admit, but it's so odd that it's genius. You may have to be of a certain age to remember things like "vocabulary cards" or even things like "vocabulary"." But for those who do remember, the odd pairings on these vintage styled cards will make you wish you had gone to a more progressive school. Quirky art for your wall, perhaps? Or maybe slide it in with your kid's lessons and see what happens. $15 at Dead Ace Co.
I've always liked Dreamcatchers, especially when you can buy one that you know has been handmade. I just adore this Plush Fox Dreamcatcher. It's different and even cute for your child who's been having bad dreams. This can be custom ordered in colors to match your decor too! $32 at Lova Revolutionary.
I used to believe that I was aware of all Simpson's merchandise, everywhere. I was very, very wrong. There's a lot of it. Like a really, really lot of it. I once saw a Simpson's asthma inhaler cover. That's almost so not cool it's cool, but this Krusty plush is just so cool that it's cool. $9.95 at Fugitive Toys.
I will admit that I came across this tie by searching for Douglas Adams on etsy. I will also admit that I have no idea what this tie has to do with Douglas Adams. But I like Douglas Adams and I like this tie so...there you go, a handsome linen tie that would certainly look elegant while dining at the Restaurant at the End of the Universe...I guess. $46 at Speak Louder.
I feel like with all this Avengers love going on, what with the movie release (and Free Comic Book Day), Thor kind of gets the short end of the stick. I mean, everyone loves the Hulk and it would be un-American to diss Cap. But for Valhalla's sake Thor is a GOD and not just any god, he's a THUNDER and LIGHTNING god. And he has pretty, long blonde hair. So show a little love for Thor with this spiffy mug, won't you (ooh, look, the handle is shaped like Mjolnir)? $12.95 at Boing Boing.
