Autumn weather is right around the corner, and I can’t wait. Fall has always been my favorite season, and I plan to spend most of the next few months enjoying the beautiful outdoors. I’ve been toying with the idea of building a fire pit in my backyard to enjoy with friends and family, but after seeing this awesome fire pit globe, my fire pit standards may have been raised. It’s just so cool!
The hanging cocoon is a super cool hammock, perfect for reading, relaxing and just hanging out (pun intended…sorry, I couldn’t help myself). According to Hammacher Schlemmer, the interesting tapered design was inspired by the nests of weaver birds and provides a bit of privacy for the user. The cocoon is ideal for lovers of the outdoors, but it can also be hung inside (maybe in a child’s room or reading nook?).
Are you a fan of the hanging cocoon? Where would you hang it?
Bring a little big city charm to your home with this clever fire escape wall shelf. It’s super cute, plus it would be excellent storage for plants or whatever knickknacks you want to show off. It might be a little too kitschy for some, but I think it’s downright delightful.

If you like to bring nature inside the home, then this earthy moss shower rug would be perfect for you. It is made of three types of moss: forest moss, ball moss and island moss. The moss thrives in humid conditions, so it’s ideal for the bathroom. Plus, it actually drinks in the water that falls after you get out of the shower. It’s like a mini magical forest in the bathroom!
Happy Labor Day! This Daily Delight is for those of you who love barbecues but always thought you didn’t have room for a grill (I’m talking to you, small space dweller). Get ready to host tailgate parties and other tasty events, because now anyone with a handrail or balcony can be a master griller! The BBQ Handrail Grill is perfect for those of us who simply don’t have room for a regular-sized grill. And even if you do have the room, this mini grill is great for a simple dinner for one or two. Plus, a smaller grill means less cleanup, and that’s a benefit everyone can get behind.
Every parent, babysitter and older sibling knows that one of the quickest ways to entertain a child for hours on end is by building a fort. It’s a cool place for imaginations to grow and adventures to ensue. I typically go with a fort of sheets or blankets, but this super sweet playhouse tablecloth is just too cute to pass up. In fact, you might want to make it a permanent addition to your kitchen!
Have you ever been stranded at the airport for hours on end wishing you had a little privacy? And wouldn’t it be great to actually be able to catch up on the sleep you have no doubt missed during your travels? The inventors of Sleepbox really knew what they were doing. These amazing mini rooms can be placed in airports, offices and anywhere a guest or customer might need to rest. Genius.

I have a bit of a canister obsession. But when they are as cute and useful as these tin chalkboard canisters, how can I help myself? I tend to go for glass canisters, so I can always see what’s inside. However, these handy-dandy chalk labels would do just the trick – plus, I just love the design!
What’s your favorite type of kitchen storage?
