Feel like having a little fun this afternoon? Head on over to Polaroid-o-nizer… No, it’s not the next Arnold action film nor is it something you’ll be adding to your family of small kitchen appliances, it’s a simple site I found via Anh-Minh’s blog, that converts any photo into a polaroid moment. Just when you thought we moved forward in technology, handfuls of us are still clinging to the good old days. I tried this service with a shot I took over the weekend. What do you think?
It’s fun, free, and retro-cute!

Kim O’Neill wrote in over the weekend to tell me all about her company, Good Stock, a charming online store that offers a modest collection of items designed around making family life enjoyable. Themed around everything Kim loves, including her family, the business name actually stems from something her grandfather always told her about their own roots, that she comes from ‘good stock’. Good Stock is a collection of Kim’s favorites in life: design, words, home, family, color, details, and nostalgia.
Whether it’s a family tree, a Good Stock book that you can write and give to your children, animal-themed onesies, quilted floor pillows in 6 juicy colors (I love the turquoise), and an adorable ‘how to’ placemat set for training little ones, complete with a napkin and napkin ring. I love how everything old-fashioned is suddenly modern again at Good Stock. Nicely done, Kim!
Thanks Kim for introducing us to Good Stock!
Jonathan wrote to me today about his company, Nina’s Pillow Designs. Based in Houston, they are a boutique designer, manufacturer, and seller of custom decorative pillows, some featuring hand-stitched leather-like vinyl details – fun! Here are a few designs that stood out for me. You can check Nina’s Designs out via the web right here.
Thanks for the tip, Jonathan!
