Things We Love – Long Overdue Edition

Upperplayground X Dennis McNett

It’s been out since early summer, but I figure I’ve still got a few months till the weather freezes me out of my t-shirts.  So I’m still trying to make the HAITI Wolfbat purchase. Only every time I hit that ‘add to cart’ button – it keeps giving me that 404: Error ‘Sucka you too late screen’.  So I guess I’m on an eBay hunt. But it’s sweet right?

Rumisu

I’m completely obsessed with the storytelling creativity of Rumisu scarves. Their limited edition runs are a playground of hand-drawn illustrations transferred to silk scarves, while playful hand crocheted accessories (paying tribute to the traditional Turkish art of ‘oya’) dangle from a scarf corner. The scarves appeal to men and women alike with a flair for having trinkets with ‘must have’ names like: Moby Dick, Troy…War because of an apple, Chicken Pox and Car Theives.  Rumisu is run by two sisters in Istanbul whose Instagram I check on the regular to see who they’re collaborating with next.

Swatch Caramellissima Watch

Swatch Watches are like Lisa Frank for me – two companies that remind me of my childhood – they possesses buying power I have yet to outgrow.  And now I discovered a Swatch that won’t leave rainbow rings on my wrist or give me a communicable disease from sharing.

Skateboard Chairs

What other reason do I possibly need other than ‘these are some seriously rad chairs’.

Sticky Paper Tape Wrapping Paper

Design: Nina von Wahlberg

I suppose it’s like the laziest thing ever, but having to expertly gift wrap presents I can’t wait to give immediately bores me to tears.  Then I saw this and immediately starting looking for things to gift.  To my dear friends – everything I give you this year will be wrapped with this… Surprise ruined.

Real Rosewood Macbook Wook Keyboard Skin

I’ve been a bit obsessed with wood design lately, so I’d jump at the chance to turn my working pal into a rustic feeling. And yeah, this is real wood (NOT vinyl). It’s made from real Rosewood veneer with a 3M™ pressure sensitive adhesive backing.  Fancy, Fancy…
