Blow My Mindsday: March 2, 2016

Each Wednesday, I post some of my favorite can’t-miss links, images, and otherwise mindblowing goodies from across the web.

This is the Minotake bamboo spatula. It’s amazing, and a good reminder that there is always room for more good design in the world, even on products that have been made and used for thousands of years. The series was designed by Makoto Koizumi and made by Japanese bamboo artisans Kohchosai Kosuga. Yours for a very reasonable $33. 

Apparently, 90% of the world’s huge variety and species of apples are descendants of only two trees in Kazakhstan. 

Homemade. Cocktail. Machine.

Oh, and speaking of cocktails, it’s basically spring, right? Time to put away the whiskey and get out the gin again? I think I’ll start with these Cucumber Mint Coolers from HeatherCristo.

Cool bedroom idea. Simple softwood plywood sheet for a headboard with a little bedside table shelf built in. Just attach an industrial-style lamp right to the wood, and hit the sheets.
