Admit it: you haven't really cleaned up from New Year's Eve yet...which is a good thing, cause you don't have to go digging through the trash to grab those little wire thingys that keep your champagne cork under control to make one of these adorable chairs.
All you need is a bottle's leftovers and a pair of needlenose pliers. Have at it, and Happy New Year.
A few packs of push pins, a pin board, a dash of inspiration (and possibly a little too much time on your hands at work) And Voila! Gloriously geeky wall art! It's Mario. And push pins. And genius.

Fancy, shipped-around-the-world, bottled water doesn't exactly love the environment, so normally we're fans of Britta round here. But there are exceptions... Behold the utter gorgeousness that is Christian Lacroix's limited edition bottle for Evian.
The lacy 'pret-a-porter' bottle looks even lovelier in person, and according to the man himself the delicate floral pattern depicts " The flowers of success... like snowy crystal garlands or frost frozen alpine flowers" (oooooh-kay). Blurb aside, they really are very pretty and when the water is gulched down I'll beContinue Reading
