One of a kind: LoveHeyLola

If you like unique and applique, you will just fall down crazy over the gorgeous jewels and bits at LoveHeyLola

I so admire the interweb for having clever, funny (Jessica – the jewellery maker, is a crack up and writes a hilarious blog), one-of-a-kind shiz for sale.  And big ups to Etsy for taking Paypal!  My new necklace is on its way.

I wonder how many kiddies would be fooled by a Cartoon Channel sticker over your fave soap drama.

Scrabble Keyboard

Some guy in his garage built this fabby scrabble keyboard, and is now inundated with requests, and no doubt lawsuits from Hasbro.

Most of the keys are made from real Scrabble tiles that were all hand-beveled (truly an exercise in patience/masochism!) and built onto a USB, clicky, mechanical-switch keyboard.

How terribly funky is this shower curtain

I figure my brain could be quite open to subliminal learning whilst cleaning and scrubbing my dirty bits.

Bring home the bacon

Crispy bacon can’t trump crispy duck, obv.  But, it does rate tres highly in the Lita list of edible delights.  

Hell, I’ve been blogging so long now, this is my 327684th post on the beauty of bacon.  And I can’t even begin to tell you the amount of difficult decisions I have easily made, helped along by my What would bacon do spinner.

Of course, the cat and I intend to start International Bacon Day off tomorrow with a bowl of bacon cornflakes.  Kapai kai.

Keep both your carnivore colleagues and your vegetarian vorkmates satisfied with these breakfast-inspired cufflinks.

Or, just out and out revolt ’em all with your raw bacon briefcase.

Cover your cut with imitation streaky bacon plaster strips.

Going on a trip?  Ensure your luggage stands out from the rest, rely on bacon!

Oo, and don’t forget your wallet.
