Top 10 Creative and Unusual Drinking Straws
My family seems to got through a lot of straws. We are often using them for drinks or even making craft things. But plain plastic straws are boring (unless you make something more fun with them like those in my post “Top 10 Things to Make With Drinking Straws“), so today I am on the look out for some drinking straws that stand out from the crowd…
Top 10 Unusual Ketchup and Mustard Condiment Sets
I have been to quite a few restaurants all over the world. I am not talking posh, A La Carte Menu style, they are not what I enjoy. I prefer more home cooked style foods, often served in dinners, or smaller town cafes. And one thing that remains a constant no matter where I have been has been the obligatory ketchup & mustard bottles often located on the table its self. So I have been looking to get my own set of these, and it seems there are some very unusual choices indeed…

Top 10 Cool and Unusual Playing Cards
I always remember my parents inviting a few close friends and family round to have a communal game of Gin Rummy, I always remember a certain Uncle of mine would always show me his “rude” playing cards with vintage ladies wearing less that the suit of card they were on. But this is not about rude cards at all (this is a family friendly blog after all) this post is about how unusual and unique I thought those cards were, but that was before I found this lot…
Top 10 Unusual Wall Mounted Heads
I have never seen a wall mounted head of a real animal. The hunters way of showing what they managed to hunt, shoot then kill. To be honest, that just isn’t for me, I prefer animals to be alive, running around the place than stuck on a wall. So maybe those people that do have a real animal on the wall should think about owning ones of these instead…
Top 10 Best Egg Cup Gift Sets
This time last year I was also writing Easter themed post. I went for “Top 10 Novelty Egg Cups” but what I didn’t realise is that there is another side to the world of egg cup gift ideas, and that is egg cup gift sets that come with various toast (or bread) related cutters and stampers!

Top 10 Best Piet Mondrian Themed Items
In the world of art there are not that many big brand names. What I am talking about is names like Banksy, Leonardo Da Vinci and Rembrandt, names that most people will remember from school. Another one of those bit name artists that people remember is Piet Mondrian, but unlike the rest of the big names I mentioned, his art seems to the motivation to make all sorts of strange products! So here is what I think is…

Well, it is said to be the Feast of Saint Patrick and is both a cultural and religious holiday mostly celebrated Ireland because that is where Saint Patrick patron saint of.

Top 10 Nerdy and Unusual Onesies
I hope the person who gave me it isn’t reading this, but I received a gift at Christmas just gone that I really, really hated. That gift was an adult sized Onesie! Maybe I am just getting older, but I just don’t get it! If I wanted to wear a giant baby grow/romper suit I would consider myself going senile! And besides I got a simple knitted style one, if I was ever going to wear an all-in-one it would have to be one of these…
