This canvas tote bag that looks like a Lego guy’s head is so great. It’s so simple, but so iconic. I can imagine a cool t-shirt with this design too.

Pick up one of these tote bags from Mark Errington’s Etsy shop for $18.50.

How cool is this floating mug by Tigere Chiriga? Back Chiriga’s Kickstarter project and you’ll get it for a pledge of $30 or more (this Kickstarter only needs to raise about $2k to reach it’s funding goal and there are 29 days left…I think it’s safe to say this will get funded).

First thing’s first: I need to apologize for being MIA lately. CMYBacon has been a bit of a ghost town. I recently started a new job that’s taking up a surprising amount of time, plus I’m in grad school, so my “free time” has been stretched very thin. The job is very exciting, though, and I’ll be announcing a really cool app that we’ve been developing soon.

Thank you to those of you who have checked in with me via email or Twitter…I’m still alive. And I plan on jump starting CMYBacon again.

Anyways, on to today’s post: The Wardrope, designed by Veronika Wildgruber and Susanne Stofer, is a really unique storage device. Porcelain hooks mounted on a rope, which can be adjusted by sliding them, form a novel, hanging coat rack. The Wardrope screws into the ceiling (or can be hung from another hook) and has a weight at the bottom of the rope to keep it under tension. Such a fun twist on the traditional coatrack, don’t you think?

Available for purchase from Authentics

I recently came across the Lau’s Ark, the Etsy shop of Laura den Otter, and I’m loving her funky, stylized stuffed animals. I would have traded one my teddy bears in a heartbeat for this little dog! Visit Lau’s Ark to see more stuffed animals or to make a purchase.

Thank you, Fredrik, for telling me about Lau’s Ark!

This set of soaps by Daniel Ting Chong, shaped like a cleaver, a paintbrush and an ice cream cone are so quirky and fun. The paintbrush has a lemon scent, the cleaver is peppermint and the ice cream is a combination of the two. They don’t look very practical but they sure are great.

Ok, so this might not be the most practical iPhone case around, but it sure is cool. The Candies Skate Deck iPhone Case are 100% (squishy!) and can be purchased for $45 from Opening Ceremony.
