A Street Cat Named Bob

This is the sweetest story of James Bowen and the street cat named Bob that changed his life. James found the injured cat in the hallway of his accommodations at a time when he was trying to straighten up his life. He took care of the kitty, even though he couldn’t really afford it, and Bob never again left his side. The pair have been inseparable ever since, busking in the streets of London, high-fiving in between songs. They have both not only healed their troubled pasts but have made it big with a published bestseller book, a children’s book, as well as a possible movie deal. Can’t wait to get read about their adventures!

Sleepypod

These products are sleek and modern. Their cool variety of carriers for dogs and cats are safety tested and approved. My favorite is the Sleepypod because it can be used as a super comfy bed (which my little nugget would love) or a carrying bag. And I would totally get the Sidekick for my bike if my dog wasn’t so crazy and energetic (she would never sit still long enough to use it).

Hand painted figurines by The Good Machinery

Admiring Italy based The Good Machinery‘s Strange Planet series of imaginatively hand painted animal figurines – looking at the little treasures simply cheer and brighten my day.
The designs play with shapes and colors including polka dots, neon, golden, striped and my favorite, the black ombré horse with a bright neon pink muzzle… or maybe the pink horse with the golden legs?

Yas-Ming ceramics

Sweet collaboration between two talented girls bring to life these whimsical ceramic creations in their Kent studio in Britain. All YAS-MING products are completely designed and handmade by Ming Wai Sun and Yasmin Dilekkaya. Their process involves slip casting, press moulding and hand building techniques. Such clever use of names for each collection – Rawr, Moo, Oink and Squeak – just makes me want one of each even more.
