Wednesday Wag Out!

Whipped Cream Tray

I thought of my sexy friend Penny when I found this cool tray. She loves whipped cream and what could be better than having whipped cream on a whipped cream tray?

This tray is made from reclaimed whipped cream cans. How cool is that? Each tray is one of a kind and is sure to be a conversation starter no matter where you use it. Mom thinks it would look great on the dining room table holding some soy candles. Hmmm, is that a Mother's Day gift hint?

Check out this cool tray and all the cool earth friendly items at www.bibelotshops.com

Skateboard Bangle Bracelet

Believe it or not, back in the day Mom used to skateboard. This was way before my time but I asked her what ever happened to her skateboard. She had no idea where it was and I told her it was probably in a landfill as I slapped her on her hand.

These cool bracelets are made from skateboards that were destined for the landfill. A Philadelphia artist saves the skateboards and turns them into a very hip, stylish accessory. Some people are just so creative!

Roll on over to http://www.homeandplanet.com/ to get your own one of a kind bracelet.

Recycled Umbrella

Mom still uses a rickety old umbrella that's probably from the 1980's, but I think I found an umbrella that she will love and have to have.

This handmade umbrella is made from non recyclable plastic garbage that is collected from various places in Indonesia. The garbage is triple washed and then sewn into an umbrella. Wow!

The company that makes them, Monsoon Vermont, was started by a woman who developed sustainable businesses in developing countries. She had seen similar items in boutiques in the UK but after a trip to Indonesia after the devasting tsumani in 2004, the proverbial light bulb went off and Monsoon Vermont was born.

Turning trash to treasure has never seemed so beautiful before so get your umbrella at http://www.themonsoongroup.com/ before it rains on your parade.

Your human finds the coolest stuff.

Mine says those umbrellas are THE coolest things ever. Now she wants to become a mom just so she can get one for mother's day.

Our Mom loves that site; she's gonna spend all our kibble money on cool stuff if we don't stop her!

Hi Puglet! I find the stuff! Mom always wants to take credit but I'm the brains behind this operation.

Your human is a mom - to you and Dutch. I think you should buy her that umbrella so that she can be the coolest mom on the block.

Hi Sequoia & Tuni! Penny totally has to get the tray because who loves whippy cream more than her? I like whippy cream too but now I think it has medicine in it so I don't eat it.

Hi Gen & The Foo! That site totally rocks. Tell your mom not to spend all your kibble money on stuff because then you will starve.

I saw the pug salt & pepper shakers but I wanted you guys to find it for yourselves. It's like a little Stubby scavenger hunt!

Hi Melissa & Emmitt! I'm trying to find lots of cool gardening ideas. Mom needs some new bird feeders so I am on the hunt to find some eco-friendly ones. The birds are just starting to come back to our area and I'm sure they're hungry!

Stubby said...

Hi Gunther! Your mom and my mom need to get together and go shopping. Since they don't live close to one another, I think they have to go on a virtual shopping spree!

Stubby said...

Hi Pink! Thanks for stopping by my bloggy. I'm glad you liked the products I chose today and I hope you'll stop by again.

Stubby said...

Hi Tweedles! I did go to college but that's not why I'm smart. I'm smart because Mom reads to me a lot. And because I sleep a lot I gives my brain a lot of rest.

Debbie said...

Wow - that is interesting gear - loved the umbrella.

Stubby said...

Hi Debbie! The umbrella seems to be the hit of the post. Soon we'll see everyone walking down the street carrying their recycled umbrellas!
