I am an unapologetic lover of Mid Century Modern design, although I do prefer it in small doses. Still, I do not own anything by George Nelson or Charles and Ray Eames (I don't think the free Eames font catalog from House Industries counts...which is gorgeous by the way). With the help of these fun little magnets, I can at least hang all of those baby announcements on my refrigerator with some panache.

Using spray painted bottle caps and some designs inspired by George Nelson's clocks, Jessica of How About Orange made these fabulous magnets. If you loathe MCM, don't fret...these magnets could easily be made with the imagery of your choice.
