Be it vinyl toys, teacups or ordinary rocks, collections are a fun sight for both the collector and the folks who come visiting. To keep your mini objets d'art looking curated rather than crazy, display them in cases. Glass and metal curios are sure to give their contents class, even if it's just a collection of old rocks from your travels.
Target has teamed up with Feed USA for a limited-edition product line. The earthy look paired with a mostly neutral palette has an outdoorsy feel. Better yet, a portion of your purchase will be donated, and every dollar donated translates into 8 meals for folks across the country.
There's just something inherently appealing about the look of laboratory equipment. Between the elegant lines of an Erlenmeyer flask and the smooth, blown-glass lip of a beaker, it's hard to look at a rack of science equipment and not want to start experimenting. And now that science class aesthetic could be coming to the kitchen.
