I was all fired up to write the definitive blog post about the near criminality of the 400+ Eat, Pray, Love-licensed gee-gaws now being hawked to promote Julia Roberts' latest, simpering attempt at being an actor when she grows up. Then I thought about it some more and realized that I would be adding a pointless endeavor to the publicity machine surrounding a movie I'll never see. So instead I'm going to run through some oddities I've come across recently.
None of them merit a post of their own but together, they're actually related to my niche so I'm going to forge ahead.
If you're the kind of person who just can't get out of the kitchen, the Italian firm Rapsel will help you bring some of that kitchen magic to your bathroom. This would also work for fans of the movie Ratatouille as well.
Oh wait a minute, that last image was a bit of projection on my part. Apologies.
I was on a roll a couple of weeks ago with ideas for switch plates and outlet covers, but these babies from The Spanish company Fede put all of my ideas to shame. How about a little Swarovski?
Speaking of Swarovski, Polish designer Lukasz Jemiol came up with with this crystal-encrusted vacuum cleaner for Electrolux.
I love the pearls.
Finally, from an unknown German manufacturer but sold on the website fitsu, come a set of kitchen brushes.
How thoughtful that it has a gold toof. You know, it's being sold as a kitchen brush but it would be infinitely funnier if it were sold as a grill brush.
And there you have it, a bit of diverting fluff for a Sunday morning. Seriously though, what do you think of those soup pot vanity sinks?
