After doing your rudeness, light one of these scented candles on your way out of the bathroom. That way, your “man can” won’t stink up the whole house.

Unfortunately, every one of the destinations featured on these Star Wars posters is located in a galaxy, far, far away.

The minimalist styling of these illustrations is the handiwork of Chicago-based designer, Justin Van Genderen. His online gallery offers a wide variety of on-demand print options.

Normally we don’t think of an old-fashioned wind-up alarm clock as a wireless device, but it is. And that’s just one reason to like it: it’s one less household appliance sucking power off the grid.

The craftsmen at Off Cut Studios also make this model in cherry, maple & white oak.
Part of their Rescued & Reused series, the craftsmen at Railyard Studios upcycle old railroad junk into functional objets d’art.

The piece is warmly finished with a Golden Oak stain and poly sealer. Oh yes, it’s American made.
