FF: The Pebble Watch

peppleI love watches and gizmos. The Pebble is a combination of both – a watch that works with your smartphone to pass along all manner of fun information on the go. One step closer to the promise Dick Tracy made us all those years ago.

About the Pebble watch: “Pebble is the first watch built for the 21st century. It’s infinitely customizable, with beautiful downloadable watch faces and useful internet-connected apps. Pebble connects to iPhone and Android smartphones using Bluetooth, alerting you with a silent vibration to incoming calls, emails and messages. While designing Pebble, we strove to create a minimalist yet fashionable product that seamlessly blends into everyday life.”

I like the Pebble used on the handlebars of the bicycle!

FF: Issi Tumblers

issiI also love my barware (almost as much as what I put in it) and I think the Issi Tumblers I found at Teroforma are really cool – like wine glasses without the stems.

About Issi Tumblers: “Mouthblown non-lead crystal tumbler employs the S-curve theme of the Issi series to a functional effect. The tulip-shaped rim makes a unique aesthetic statement while also accentuating the sweetness of the beverage inside. Dishwasher safe.”

Issi Tumblers are handmade in the Czech Republic and available in the US from Teroforma.

FF: Deyrolle of Paris

DeyrolleOn my next trip to Paris I have made a note to stop in at Deyrolle, a world-renowned taxidermy shop that puts most natural history museums to shame.

About Deyrolle of Paris: “Depuis 1831, Deyrolle rassemble dans une atmosphère de cabinet de curiosités d’importantes collections destinées à tous les amateurs de la nature. La boutique propose des collections riches et variées d’insectes, de coquillages, d’animaux naturalisés, de curiosités naturelles, de livres et de planches pédagogiques. Aujourd’hui, la boutique est plus belle que jamais. Des mammifères de grande taille aux splendides oiseaux naturalisés, des papillons multicolores aux insectes étonnants, l’univers de Deyrolle incite au rêve, à la curiosité, aux découvertes.”

Don’t worry, I can’t read French either. Translation = Very Cool!
