Love everything about this tropical fruit? Yeah me too. It’s been a symbol of hospitality for hundreds of years and even has an interesting imperial past.  Here is a roundup of my favorite pineapple finds.

It’s all about the neon.  This neon pineapple light features a dimmer so you can adjust your level of fabulousness. Also available in cactus, flamingo, crab, rainbow, toucan 🙂

Bent Objects by Terry Border

Terry Border‘s quirky photography imagines the secret life of everyday objects. What happens to the snack food in your pantry or the office supplies on your desk when you leave the room? I would best describe his work as always humorous, often ironic and bizarre, and sometimes disturbing. Terry’s new collection of photographs is due out in stores tomorrow! Bent Object of My Affection explores the twisted love lives of everyday objects.

Here are some of my favorites.

Terry Border has also dabbled in animation and adult humor.  His other blog Really Bent Objects is the more graphic, black sheep cousin of Bent Objects.
