I’ve seen a lot of creative tea infusers lately. I love that the focus on design (or redesign for that matter) is creeping into the ordinary things in life and making them prettier. I thought the shark infuser had beautiful clean lines but this tiny yellow submarine just makes me smile — just in time for the spring.

I always estimate a pinch and a smidge but leave it to somebody to design a set of measuring spoons for all those odd sizes. Get your hands on these, as well as other unique finds, online at The Spoon Sisters. It’s one of my favorite sites for atypical gifts and fun household items.

If you’re a fan of Legos, I think you need these candles. Yes, they are stackable! My mind is already spinning with ideas.

I can’t contain myself! LEGO is introducing a series of licensed Frank Lloyd Wright LEGO sets. Get ready. The first two sets in the series are Fallingwater and The Guggenheim. The models were developed in collaboration with architects so this is more than just a toy. Hopefully, this new LEGO series will inspire a new generation of designers, architects, and engineers. I’m ready to build my replicas.

The continuation of my obsession with subway maps – Part II. I was browsing Design Sponge and this pretty variation on a map sparked my interest. This Parisian subway art map brings back many fond memories of traveling across the city last autumn.

A nice twist on the tea infuser. Probably would work best aesthetically with a red tea such as Rooibos.

“I’ve been amazed at how often those outside the discipline of design assume that what designers do is decoration. Good design is problem solving.” – Jeffrey Veen
