[ETSY] Natural Edge Cutting Board

Deep down, all hippies want to sit around in a log cabin, surrounded by natural materials.  No plastic, no polyester, no synthetic ANYTHING.  One of my hippie friends once told me that she measures time by how long it takes a stick of incense to burn out (one hour).  Great.

Someone who measures time by burning sticks would love a big slap of wood as a cutting board.  She'll be able to slice her kale in style with this Natural Edge Cutting Board ($62, Red Onion Woodworks).

[RECAP] Million Dollar Decorators: Episode 4

Last week, Martyn taught a bunch of Mexicans how to clean a home the proper way for a sex tycoon, Jeffrey redid a gym bathroom, setting the perfect stage for a high-quality gay porn, and Kathryn launched her own spin-off: Hoarders: The Rich Nutcase Edition.

This week, we find out that Jimmy Choo is not run by a gay Asian man (or, a "Gaysian"), Mary doesn't listen to her client again, Jeffrey plans a birthday party, and Kathryn continues to plug her Hoarders spin-off.

Here we go.

[GIFTED] Grid Pillows

For the record, I'm not a big fan of pillows.  You walk into someone's living room, you try to sit down on their couch, and you're moving about 700 pillows just so you can sit comfortably. 

I think this stems back to when I was younger, when I had about 15 "dress pillows" on my [wicker] bed.  Every night, I'd have to spend 45 minutes taking all of the pillows off the bed and putting them neatly aside.  Then, the next morning I would have to make the bed and assemble Pillow Mountain once again.  Even at 5 years old, I knew this was tedious.

I think we can all draw the conclusion that this is why I hate pillows and it's also why I have not made my bed in probably about 9 months.  However, these Grid Pillows ($35, Henry Road) could ease my aversion.  But not by much.

[GIFTED] Wordless Design Wrapping Paper

Remember that crazy aunt you had that showed up to a birthday party with presents wrapped in Sunday comics?  Not only did it look trashy, the presents underneath the cheap wrapping paper were always garbage.   

Don't turn into her.  Pick up this Universal Wrapping Paper (Wordless Design) instead.

My 5 Best Gifts: Jaime Derringer from Design Milk

Let's face it: giving the perfect gift to someone is like standing on top of a mountain and shouting, "HEY EVERYONE, I'M NOT AN EMOTIONAL CRIPPLE!"   

My 5 Best Gifts is a recurring feature that asks people to give up the goods on the best gifts they've given or received. 

Jaime Derringer is a blogging machine.  She started the "Milk" empire of design-y blogs, Design Milk and Dog Milk, and has written for AOL's Shelterpop and DIY Life, USA's Characters Approved blog, and several others.  In general, her sites serve up so much design porn on a daily basis that I just tend to open the page, sit at my computer and drool.
