Okay, we stole that from Timbers t-shirts, but it sort of applies to these totally awesome Stump Glasses from Portland glassmaker Lynn Everett of Vitreluxe Glassworks, available exclusively at Tilde.
The stump glasses are created using a mold from an oak branch, hand blowing glass into the mold, then individually shaping the glass once removed from the branch to dry. Each glass is 4″ tall and uniquely individual, a great way to enjoy your favorite cold beverage. Sold as a set of 2 in a gift box for $72
Megan Etcheberry is so darling. She is on the new reality show called Rodeo Girls on A&E airing this next week. She also has a jewelry line called ETCH that features a bracelet “Breaking Chains”. All proceeds go to Door to Grace, an outreach to sex trafficked girls in Portland. The message is that we all have chains in our lives that need to be broken, take a stand to break your figurative chains while helping girls break their literal chains of sex-trafficking.
Tough subject, but awesome cause and very cool bracelets – only $10
We’re jealous of celebrities who have trainers and chefs to help them stay fit and trim. We’re too busy to sit down most days, so maybe meal delivery is the way to go. But what’s earth-friendly, fresh, delicious and affordable? We want it all!
Farm to Fit delivers to your home or office (at $7–$10 a meal it costs less than going out to lunch). Yummy, locally sourced food is perfectly portioned for calorie-controlled diets, and made by a local chef!
Some days you want to pull the curtains closed, double-check the locks and turn off the phone. But every so often there’s an intrepid intruder who dares to knock on your door!
Keep unwanted visitors at bay with this “says it all” doormat. The message is crystal clear: We don’t want to sign up, we gave at the office, we don’t care about your petition, we are watching Lifetime Movies, and now is not the time.
They’ve made movies of just about every late-70s/early 80s series worth viewing on late-night cable. (Glaring exceptions: The Love Boat and FantasyIsland.) But has anyone revisited them with the humor and irony of this teapot? We think not.
“Mr. Tea”? It’s genius. It’s handmade with eco-friendly paint (Mr. T considers the environment while he’s pouring your Darjeeling), and we pity the fool who doesn’t snap one of these up—it’s the best housewarming gift ever.
Our taste in men has run the gamut, our hearts flitting from the brooding artist one day to the hot musician or the muscle-y athlete the next, but these days we know exactly what we want. Right now our hearts belong to Silver Cocoon.
Sleek and chic must-haves include cool wooden earrings, necklaces, and our personal fave: COIL bracelets, hand-made, soft and wide, that exude an artistic edginess while at the same time maintaining an organic feel. We find them simply irresistible.
We’re convinced we’re going to be one of those old ladies who calls all her grandkids by the wrong name and misplaces her glasses on top of her head. We simply have no retention skills—we blame it on living a little too large in college.
Thankfully our bunk brains have Gift Elephant, a novel little site that allows you to track the gifts you give and receive, remind you of special occasions, and even help manage your thank-yous.
Vintage rocks, but sometimes we find ourselves floundering between vintage chic and vintage geek. It can be downright difficult to pull off killer period pieces without looking like we’re playing dress-up in Great-Aunt Ruby’s closet! Luckily there’s Dressing Vintage.
This online retailer features a sweet selection of fashion and accessories, as well as a handy how-to on buying, sizing, and caring for your divine designs. Trust us, with this site as your guide, you’ll be mastering the vintage vibe in no time!
Our aunt had a sheep magnet on her fridge that read, “Ewe’s not fat, ewe’s just fluffy.” Oof. Well, we’re a little fluffier than we want to be, and with the holidays fast approaching we could be in big diet trouble.
Thank goodness for the Mother Tucker collection from Belly Bandits. The tank tops offer three zones of tummy-tightening compression and a three-inch anti-roll bottom to keep muffin tops in place. It keeps your holiday splurges secret!
