Super Mario Wedding

I’ll be honest with you, if someone told me they were going to have a Super Mario themed wedding I would have assumed it would have been a rather tacky affair, maybe verging on kitsch, but definitely cartoony.

That’s why this photo set on Green Wedding Shoes surprised me. It’s not tacky, it’s not cartoony, it’s almost classy.

Sure it’s not your traditional white wedding, but I think it’s actually quite stylish. The wedding concept is apparently the work of Primary Petals.

Scrabble Typography Edition

Scrabble Typography Edition

While I find the idea of a “Typography Edition” of Scrabble appealing and at a glance this set if nothing short of beautiful I have my reservations. You can’t just randomly select fonts for the different letters and call it a Typography Edition, Sure the solid walnut storage case tiles and board look nice and the fact that they are magnetised and lined with “Slip Free Cork” is useful.

But there is one detail I find almost offensive, the fact that the edges of the individual boards don’t line up with where the tile edged do, I’d almost be able to forgive this if they Bisected the tiles but they don’t the placement seems haphazzard.

That just doesn’t look nice.

Anyway if that doesn’t bother you and you have $199 to spare you can pre-order one now.

Coraline Button Cookies

It wouldn’t take much to convince me that these chocolate covered peanut butter cookies were awesome, I’m a huge fan of peanut butter cookies and who doesn’t like chocolate. The fact that they are made in the shape of button in tribute to Neil Gaiman’s novel Coraline is just a bonus.
