Simply…HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY!
As FICKLEosophy creeps (in a good way) toward (or is it towards?) the TEN THOUSAND views mark – I have to ask myself…”when is the last time that 10,000 meant so much”? The answer: 1987. 10,000 Maniacs. Certainly not the first 10,000 Maniacs hit…but in my humble opinion…the best! These Are The Days…“Squeeze Me Slow!”
The Morph Pad from Schleeh Design of Canada takes the good-old-fashioned note pad to a whole new level…literally. You see “Morph”, and it’s larger cousin the Mighty Morph Pad, are sculpturally fluid – moving to a new dimension with every twist and turn. Made of 1000 recycled paper sheets – this simple block – each featuring fabulous artwork – transforms into a masterpiece befitting any dreary desk. But buyer beware – the Morph Pad evokes a plentitude of obsessive daydreaming.
Handbag Collectors listen! Lolafalk - the Brooklyn-based design studio of creatively colorful leather goods is where you’ll find Lauren “Lola” Falkowski piecing together her magic. Handbags, wallets, and accessories – all “inspired by the architecture that fills the Brooklyn neighborhoods surrounding the studio”. Full of color, inside and out, there’s a taste of minimalism that defines a modern vibe not to be missed.
And in true admirable fashion, Lolafalk is donating 10% of 2013 sales to help support Handbags of Hope - a non-profit organization with an incredibly cool concept – they fill new or gently handled handbags with 10 handbag necessities and “deliver them to domestic abuse, teen programs, and transition housing throughout Michigan”. All reasons to get obsessed.
In the spirit of all true obsessions and cut-to-the-chase philosophies, won’t you LIKE FICKLEosophy on Facebook?
