Long Hair Saucer Chair
Discovered at WalMart last night (and apparently sold out this morning; I called to get more info to find a link for you -- how dedicated am I?!), the Long Hair Saucerchair. I bet it's more fun to say than to sit in. In truth, I just keep saying long-hair-saucer-chair over and over again -- but have no
desire to sit in it.
This was the closest I could find
to the chair. They make them for pets too
, of course -- it would be cool to train a dog to take to his chair at the command of "Long Hair Saucer Chair."

Hopefully you won't be melting any actual Kraftwerk vinyl (it's worth quite a bit more than this
), but find yourself a Sing Along With Mitch
and make yourself something pretty. I'm sure my daughter, who walks along the edge of Gothness in her fashion, wants to make some of these
Making strips out of vinyl, bending them into a bracelet, and adding baubles is so very 1980s, ultra-retro. When we were messing around with melting records this summer, cutting them briefly crossed my mind, but apparently it's easier and more useful than I thought. But a paper-cutter? Ingenious! Metafilter has a bunch of other projects
, quite a few more things than just bowls.

No, Brooke Shields, it's not the VW Routon
which has me in the mood for a baby; it's BambinaMia who makes the most kitsch-tastic baby duds for dolls and dudes!

Modern Woman Monday: What's In Your Fridge?
of the many quirky, unique items available at the Kindness Of Strangers shop
, a group in which I am just one of the quirky, unique artists -- but I didn't make this one; Slip of a Girl
did. (People always think she's so sweet. She is, but she's also got her twisty side

Pixies On Toadstools & Whiskers On Kittens
Hannah not only made them
, but offers pdf instructions
Nothing goes better with pixies on toadstools than whiskers on kittens (I know
you're singing along!). We'd prefer you had your own cats who would brush their whiskers against the toadstool doorstops, but if not... Here's a vintage kitty -- with whiskers -- pattern
; some assembly required.
