On a recent trip to Paris, I discovered this great chain of boutiques called La Chaise Longue. Unfortunately for me, this wonderful shop is only in France, but they do have a webshop. You can imagine the cost of shipping to the US. The one thing that I really loved and wanted was the mushroom table and stools. It would go perfect with my gnome-y atmosphere at home! But the shipping was pretty much equal to the cost of the set. Yikes! Here are my fave picks from this gem of a store:

1- Mushroom table set

2- High Heel Tea infuser

3-Reusable plastic tea infuser

4- Macaroon headphones

5-Telephone cuff links

6-Pastel knife set

Be sure to check out their cool site, La Chaise Longue.

So, I can’t wait for the new Tron movie to come out. Mostly because it a) It looks awesome b) the music is awesome (by Daft Punk) c) I love neon  and d) tight leather catsuits. One of my favorite art cafes, Royal T in LA (Culver City, to be exact) has a Tron pop-up shop that is worth seeing if you are a mega fan. They have jewelry, shoes, clothes, t-shirts, artwork and headphones, as well as other stuff Tron-related. You may have seen Royal T in my past posts. If you are visiting LA, it’s not that far off, and is worth stopping in regardless of what exhibit is on. Anyway, Tron comes out December 16th- I’m so getting ready to go in the grid!

Here are some stuff I found while cruising the vast void of the internet. Seriously, the more I dig, the more I can’t stop! I need an intervention and Mr. Marmar’s not gonna do it!
-So the first photo is a watermelon cooler/carrier from Japan. I can’t really say much more except that those Japanese never overlook a damn thing! If it were me, I’d ditch the watermelon and put my cat or kid in it on a really hot day. I think they’d appreciate that.
-A lightbulb idea came to Swedish designer Eric Therner (I’ll show my way out)… A lightbulb in the shape of a diamond! Who thought you need a huge chandelier to be all fancy-like when you can just do it with a single bulb? I love when everyday objects are fiddled with for the cooler.
Pinky Diablo ‘s skull spoons are probably just for looking at. But still damn cool! I can see my son persuading me to give him his medicine in that spoon- tricky little boy!
-These Lego Headphones were made by someone who’s crazy about Legos. If you have the time, you too can make them. Follow the link to the instructions, but you’re gonna have to swipe some of your kids’ legos. Good luck with that. I like that you can add blocks whenever and wherever you want. They need to make lego bows.
Voila! Hope that starts your week off right!

Etsy is one of my favorite sites to look for cool stuff, however, sometimes I run into effed up stuff like this. Luckily, that’s what my blog thrives on!  So, if you ever wanted Cabbage Patch Ear Muffs, here they are. They should make a Garbage Pail Kids version. I used to collect those cards when I was a kid. I would buy several at a time and shove all the gum in my mouth. My favorite card was Acne Amy and Peeled Paul. Yeah, I had issues as a child. Anyway, I thought this Glowing Fur Coat and Bra would be something I would wear in the 90’s to a rave. I mean, raves gave you a license to wear Muppet fur and be cool, right?? I threw in some  Tuxedo Candle Shoes and Rudolph the Red Nose Reindeer Shoes. I thought you ‘d like that.

Karl Lagerfeld’s  Fall 09′ accessories included headphones that look like they hurt and a helmet with built-in headphones and Ipod pocket. Even though that helmet has pearls and sparkles, it could still pass for one of those toddler safety helmets.  But , I would still wear them because Karl the Kaiser designed them . It’s a known fact that Karl has over 100 Ipods and ‘dreams to be a rapper’. That Krazy Karl!  He should just shut it and just design stuff.  I’m not sure, but is that helmet for the motorcycle? Isn’t that dangerous? You know, not hearing traffic and stuff?

I am a HUGE fan of headphones, not earbuds, but headphones. I feel like earbuds make my ear icky and my ears make the earbuds icky. I can’t win. So, headphones are great because they cover your entire ear and makes it feel all snuggly. Anway, here are Hair Headphones from the Japanese line Limi Feu  Spring 2009 show by French designer Clement Dauvant. These are great for those bad hair days! Usually with a bad hair day, you don’t want to talk to people , so the headphones would work perfectly. Princess Leia would rock these if she was around now. She wouldn’t have to do her hair every friggin’ day. Also , she could use R2D2 as an ipod. I wonder if I can make a pair with my trusty glue gun.
