Apple Votive Candles

I’m always coming across things I love and gotta have, but most of all don’t want to forget! Thanks to a trusty coworker, she turned me on to Tumblr. Tumblr is a place that I’m using to dump all the photos, links, and blogs that I come across for wedding inspiration. Most of it is fall-inspired wedding ideas. Go on, have a look at my ‘tumblelog.’ Have any fun wedding or party ideas you want to share? I’m all ears!

#triviatuesday on Twitter

twitter

Some of my fellow followers and I thought it would be fun to start something new on Twitter and it’s called Trivia Tuesday. Ask a question followed by the hashtag: #triviatuesday. It’s the same idea as other Twittter hashtags like #followfriday, #flirtyfriday, #flickrmonday, etc. Here’s how it works. Ask your Twitter audience a question, like

“Name this movie: ‘I’m the lobster — FIRST lobster in the nativity play.’ #triviatuesday”

New @reply tweets should generate as people answer the question. By the way, the answer is Love, Actually. Go ahead, play along. Ask questions like:

  • Name the movie
  • Locate this place
  • Name this restaurant
  • Brain teasers

Tweet away and don’t forget to add the hashtag, #triviatuesday!

I came across a rather unique post on Twitter, “Art for a Dollar” thanks to @DivineCaroline. A tattoo artist by the name of Scott Campbell, has a signature style, which has been etched via laser beams into stacks of dollar bills. Check out a few of his designs:

Vending Machine Makes Pizza in 2.5 Minutes

Looks like Pizza Hut may be getting a run for their money. Apparently there is a new type of vending machine on the market that makes piping hot pizza pies in less than three minutes for only around $5 bucks. There are four different types of pizza and each are made fresh; the robot prepares the dough, pours the sauce, sprinkles the cheese and bakes. The vending machine is currently only in Europe (Italy), but the owner plans to bring it to America. Check out the photos for yourself:

Home decor at an extreme? These individually hand-made temperature-sensitive glass tiles are a new item on the market. Colors vary according to the temperature of whatever comes into contact with it (ie. your hand, water, air temperature). Think mood rings.

Thanks to bookofjoe for his original post. I’m a big fan design-wise, but realistically speaking? I think it’s too pricey of a product. What are your thoughts?

Designer’s Tabletop Electric Stove

cooka_11

Came across this retro-looking table top stove that folds up and stows away easily. It’s called the “Cooka.” Here’s an excerpt from Yanko Design:

“Cooka takes away the theory that silver is only meant for cutlery and ornamental purposes. This unique tabletop electrical cooking device uses silver in its design quite generously. Banking on its thermal conductivity properties, the cooking plates use the metal effectively to heat up the utensils fast and cool down the unit even faster.

The distinctive design of Cooka makes it resemble a table mat and quite like it, you can fold it up and stow it away, till the next cooking session. The silver plates are surrounded by tiny holes that constantly blow out a stream of hot air around the utensil, so that excess heat is not lost during cooking”
