Pink Thing of The Day: Artist in a Pink Bunny Costume

I have been known to good-naturedly refer to Art Expo as the Hotel/Motel Art Show of NYC art fairs, in that it hosts lots of art for people who do not really understand art. That means it is more about generating sales than blowing minds, and that is totally fine. Not everything can be as elitist and untouchable (read: fun) as Frieze. On the upside, the most recent Art Expo took place over Halloween weekend, so what it lacked in original artwork it make up for in A+ people watching. Take this woman dressed as a Pink Bunny, for example.

Ah, Summer is here and we all want frozen cocktails on demand, amiright? There’s nothing like a frosty, buzz-inducing beverage to help you beat the heat, poolside or inside. But who wants to take a time out to break out the blender when you’re in the middle of relaxing at home? I will take a  hard pass on that.

Fortunately, I found something that does all the hard work for you. I recently attended a Housewares Summer Press Preview sponsored by the International Housewares Association, and fell in love with the design of these Pink Frozen Cocktail Tumblers from Rabbit. Check them out! Continue reading Pink Thing of The Day: Rabbit Frozen Cocktail Tumblers

Pink Thing of The Day: Pink Bunny Storage Ottoman

I originally took this photo of a giant paper mache (guessing) Pink Bunny Storage Ottoman (guessing again) at a NY Now gift show in August of 2019. I found it in my photo archives while digging around for a pink thing to post this week. How fortunate.

You can see it is rather big, so it would probably be a great addition to a child’s bedroom or playroom, as the back has a removable “lid” and I am sure you could store lots of toys and kid’s crap (or even linen) inside it.  It’s pretty cute, definitely unique and also quite practical. Although I neglected to note the vendor, I did a search for “paper mache animal heads” and found this site, where I immediately recognized the Rainbow Striped Cow Head in the background.  I have no idea if that is the correct vendor, but if you want to have a hand at doing some research Googling on your own, please leave any information in the comments.

Eye On Design: Rabbit Waiter Brooch By Raymond Yard

Raymond C. Yard (18851964) is considered to be one of the great Art Deco jewelers. After mastering the art of jewelry making at Marcus & Co., Yard opened his own shop at 607 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan in 1922. Between 1928 and 1933 he created a series of charming Rabbit Brooches, each of which differs slightly, featuring fine details of gold, diamonds, rubies and sapphires. That the Rabbit Waiter brooch (1930) serves alcoholic drinks during Prohibition adds a certain humor to the whimsy, which would have appealed to Yard’s high-society clientele.

This hilarious Fat Pink Rabbit thing is a Tea Infuser that you fill with loose tea leaves and immerse in boiling water, to be used in lieu of a tea bag. It’s pretty cute and would make a fun little gift for any Tea Drinker. Even better: it costs just $3.00! Available at the Flying Tiger Shop in NYC!
