Etsy: Tatibu

28 Sep

The color, the shapes, THEE ANIMALS. It’s like a a power trio of awesome that would inhance any of your cool danish sweets twenty fold to infinity. That sentence prolly makes no sense. Forgive me. I’ve had a couple cups of coffee and am super jazzed on life right now.

There are also pillows that are not animals. Chevrons they call it. Mhhh. Noice.


Plenty of more cute things to check out from Tatibu. Poke around that Etsy store mah friends and see if there is anything that really gets you to squealing.

House Industries+Herman Miller

27 Sep

Olly gosh gosh asdhajsdhjahjas!!!! <-EXCITEMENT. Herman Miller and House Ind. are coming together and making these bootiful tables. Single tear rolls down my cheek from the beauty anddddd that they will only be abvailable in Hong Kong and Tokyo.
Via House Ind:

House Industries and Herman Miller are producing a limited edition series of 80 Eames wire-base tables (aka an LTR or Low Table Rod) that include A thru Z, numbers and ornaments from the Eames Century Modern font collection. Forty tables will be available in Hong Kong at the Herman Miller Reach event on September 16, 2011 and 40 will be available at the House Industries exhibition at the Herman Miller Tokyo Showroom on October 27, 2011. Each tabletop is hand-printed by House’s own David Dodde in our Grand Rapids, Michigan factory, returned to Herman Miller for assembly then packaged in a special House Industries-designed wooden crate.

Even the crate is fantastic.

Ah, sitting on the couch watching Law and Order: SVU, and trolling Craigslist. This.. is the life of Mimomito writers. Anyhow, here’s some not-so-local finds for y’all to feast upon.

$150.00 in Redding. Look at that lil’ thang. Standing all slender up against that pumpkinny wall. Mm.

Nine drawer dresser with tapery good legs, yeah. $100.00 in Redding.

THIS THING IS AMAAAAZING! $100.00 in Sparks, Nevada. It’s a wonky little coffee table with a slide-out hidden bar. Whoa.

Black dresser – not so sure what the heck is going on with that.. white doodie trailing down the front of it, honestly.. but, it’s $40.00! So, maybe that’s cheap enough to find out. In Stockton.

Alright – and here’s the best for last. This is a vintage blonde wood stereo cabinet for $200.00 in El Dorado Hills. It only plays 78’s, but if you’re a handy person, you could possibly drop in a more modern player. Or, if you’re old school and only have a 78’s collection – YOU’VE JUST SCORED. Needs some work to get running, it would seem. Anyhow, it’s beautiful.

Teak desk

25.00 and some TLC. Dude need’s some steel wool taken to him and a leg operation.

Saturday Morning Cartoons

24 Sep

This is usually Rose’s section, but she inspired me to spend my entire morning watching awesome cartoons from the ’50s and ’60s.

I like this one for many reasons but mostly because of the dancing. I’m thinking I might be Olive Oyl for Halloween. She’s a real hepcat and she’s got all the right dance moves. If only I had a Popeye … :)

Rosemary’s Table

24 Sep

Remember Rosemary? She is moving and is selling her super cute table.

Beautiful teak and walnut corner bi-level side table for sale. Boomerang style top level and beautiful tapered legs.
It’s approximately a 2’6″ square in size. Sorry the pics are sideways, couldn’t figure out how to switch them.
$150, cash only.

$150 – Curtis Park – Check out her CList post.

Book Shots: How Communication Helps Us

22 Sep

This little book comes by way of the Guadalupe Elementary School in San Jose, California, and marked “Discarded/Obsolete.” The cover alone was worth picking it up. The illustrations inside are made stunning with the use of simple punches of color. A delightfully dated collection of communication concepts.

Community: Jeramie is giving these cusions away fo’ freeeeee.

21 Sep

I was cleaning up the garage a little last night and found some vinyl cushions with a floral print in green and orange, that I had stashed away.  I rescued them from my sail boat.  They are in pretty good shape and iIthink there are about seven so the number is off, but maybe the odd number is a good thing?

If you want Jeramie’s sweet cushions, shoot him an e-mail:
