backyard bliss

a collection a photos gathered as inspiration towards my backyard. . .

(please excuse the lack of sourcing on the below photos)

Really like the idea of creating low decking around a gathering of trees. . . (minus those pillows and potted flowers)

Yes . . .

I love clever, simple products. The ones that make you say, "Yeah, duh. Why didn't someone do that a long time ago?"

First seen on The Designer Pad, these chopsticks double as a spoon! No more picking up the bowl and drinking the broth will be required.

"Frech product designer A├»ssa Logerot came up with the exceptional Spoon More, a chopstick and spoon hybrid that makes eating a bowl of your favorite Ramen Noodles or Pho Ga a breeze. When taken apart, the spoon also serves as a small dish for your sauce."

(I really like the packaging too)
