Black Deck of Cards

The artwork on this black deck of playing cards is really exceptional and I love the idea of a complete deck of cards in black. I guess it would make it more difficult for someone to cheat and sneak a peek at your cards!

Leaf Silhouette Custom Portrait

These Leaf Silhouette Custom Portraits are offered by Jenny Lee Fowler on Etsy and I think they would make unique and beautiful gifts. You send a photo of the lucky lady/gentleman, choose a leaf and she'll work her magic! Leaf cuttings will be available again in late spring so you have a bit of time to arrange the perfect photo to use.

Handsome Bookends

Okay, for once the pun in the title isn't my own! These really are the Handsome Hand Bookends and they remind me of the Bestow Hand Vase/Candleholder and Offer Hand Hook I posted about a while back. If someone decorated a room with all of these things I think the atmosphere would be very surreal.

Beyond Light by Albert Koetsier

Below are just a couple of examples of the amazing X-rayography art that can be found on Albert Koetsier's website, Beyond Light. His process includes more than just taking x-rays of beautiful flowers and other things found in nature and it's really pretty fascinating (you can read about it here).

Killer Rabbit Stapler

This killer rabbit stapler was obviously inspired by the Rabbit of Caerbannog from the movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail. Oh, those "nasty, big, pointy teeth"! They're sharp enough to staple all of your papers together.

Nesmuk Diamond-studded Kitchen Knife and Ring Set

A diamond-studded knife and matching ring set may seem like an...interesting combo but thats exactly what Quintin Nel and Hoffmann/Pieper have put together. Even though I don't really have a use for an expensive diamond-studded knife, I do think it's awfully pretty.

Skull Bike Stickers

These reflective skull biker stickers from SUCK UK are a good alternative to the flashy orange rectangles that you can use to make yourself more visible when you're out biking. I've actually been considering picking up something bright and reflective for when I'm out walking at night and I think something like this would do the trick.

Shark Attack Pizza Cutter and Alli-grater

I really love this Shark Attack Pizza Cutter and the Alligrater is pretty rad too. I bet these fearsome animals would help you make the greatest pizza ever (if you ask them really nicely).

Peacock Snips

These cute "Peacock Snips" scissors from Kikkerland have a really great design. I like everyday objects that have a little bit of a twist to them and these definitely fit the bill.
