seamus the eco dog gets political

socktopus_M_1.jpgWhen I look up at the tv these days, I’m seeing an awful lot of the two presidential candidates and their running mates.  You know, the old, cranky “Sit! Stay!” geezer basking in the glow of his beehive-sporting “leave that dog outside” VP.  And the easy going “I wouldn’t advise chewing on that table leg” black guy alongside the older guy with the comb-over and run-on sentences.

seamlksupprofside___1.JPGGiven the current presidential choices, I propose an alternate pairing, (pictured here), these nifty ‘Sweater Monkeys.’  No debating, attack ads, or political shenanigans with these guys; just grab a leg and start chewing.

Handmade from recycled sweaters so they’re one-of-a-kind.

cassette wallet – upcycling?

Italian designer Marcella Foschi has created these one-of-kind wallets out of old audio cassette tapes.


Does this meet the definition of ‘upcycling’? I guess it depends on the original recording artist. Due to the unique nature of this product it is currently out of stock.  Figures.
