Is this what handbags look like in the jungle? In any case, I like this leafy bag made of printed canvas and brown leather. It makes me wish I was at a resort wearing an oversize beach hat. The bag is 14-inches wide and about seven inches tall.
This sleeveless eyelet top looks fresh and summery, like newly mowed grass. It's casual enough to wear to a friend's barbecue. But it's also put-together enough that you could pair it with white pants and metallic sandals, and wear it on a date. It also comes in white.
I'll be honest. I didn't like the Rubik's Cube. I also didn't like anyone who was good at solving the Rubik's Cube. But I do like this alarm clock. When you just twist the top, the display changes. Depending on which side you flip to, it shows the time, temperature, and date.

This is a cool way to decorate your place while displaying some family pride. (It's also a nice Father's Day gift.) You get these four 10-inch colored canvas squares and matching paint. Then you and hubby and the kids slather a hand in paint and make some art.

These hoops are fun. They look kind of fruity, with their dangly cluster of bright orange beads. You know, sort of Chiquita Banana chic. But don't walk around with a bowl of fruit on your head, though. Because that's just weird.

I am gaga over these floral melamine dinner plates. I like how they all share the same Spring-y green, orange, and black color scheme, but each one has a different pattern. Because they're plastic, they'd be great for serving up a meal on the patio.
Granted, if you're like me, you might need a special occasion to wear three-inch platform gold metallic shoes. But, seriously, how awesome are these? I could see myself wearing them on the boardwalk with some white wide-leg linen pants. I also sort of see myself twisting my ankle, but never mind that.

This top looks very cool. I think I could maybe actually wear this sleeveless T-shirt on the subway in the summer and not turn into a sweaty mess. Maybe. Plus, the ruching and asymmetric bow on the shoulder keeps it from looking like a boring T-shirt. It also comes in black and green.
Hard day? Curl up with one of these babies. They're little 14- by 7.5-inch pillows filled with buckwheat and lavender. You can even toss them in the microwave for a few seconds, and they warm up like heating pads. They come in four varieties, each one decorated with a different botanical silhouette.

Okay, I don't totally understand how this jewelry by designer Melissa Borrell works. It's made of stainless steel, and apparently, it comes sort of attached to the rest of the sheet metal and you "pop it out" yourself and put it on the included chain. Although, it sounds a bit complicated, the result is a really funky, almost organic looking jewelry set.
