spacer The Wind in the Willows Vintage Book Charging Dock
The charging docks from Rich Neeley Designs are fantastic! We love The Wind in the Willows Vintage Book Charging Dock for iPods and iPhones. Here’s a product description:

This copy of Kenneth Grahame’s classic story The Wind in the Willows was printed in 1961, and is bound in a dark spring green with a black illustration on the cover of Mole, Badger, Ratty, and of course, Toad. If you know it, you love it, and if you don’t know it– well, it’s never too late to enjoy a children’s classic. It will make a perfectly nostalgic charging dock for your phone.

Win a Loopy Lulu Bag from That Clever Clementine, Retail value: $25. The bag is fully lined and reversible, featuring a fun, retro print.

Vicki writes, “My Loopy Lulu Bags were designed primarily for knitters to use as a work-in-progress bag, but people tell me they use their bags to tote library books, their kids’ gizmos, and all manner of thingamajigs. I hope you will enjoy this figment (I mean ‘product’) of my imagination!… As a lifelong sewist/knitter/crafter/feltmaker, I am deeply immersed in color and texture. My tastes are eclectic– I’ve always been inspired by vintage and ethnic textiles, but am equally smitten with cutting-edge contemporary design. From the whimsical and amusing to the ‘sensible and clever,’ I love combining new and repurposed materials in new (and quite possibly eccentric) ways!” Visit Vicki on her blog and the That Clever Clementine shop.
