Vest Pocket Ashtray


By Maison Martin Margiela so by definition it's way cooler than you.

"Mini-ashtray in polished stainless steel with a clip to hold it to the user's pocket. Allows you to get rid of ashes when no classic ashtray is around."

hauspanther — "The premier online magazine for design-conscious cat people"

Do I have the best readers or what?

Long-time homie Tara Blaine emailed me a link to this fantastic site, filled with all manner of über-wonderful things that got Gray Cat hyperventilating and pawing at the screen with delight.

Flautist weighed in, after I forwarded the link to her, as follows:

Speaking of Gray Cat, does she have a tree? She needs to have a tree, a tall one with hidey-holes and climbing surfaces and napping trays and such. Most, like the majority but not necessarily all those available at PetSmart — I have seen one or two well made, attractively designed ones there — are hideous, beige-carpet-covered crap. Get (make?) her something nice. She would like you to get on it right away. 

What was that song* you posted once, I liked it too — "She'll Get You High," or "She Gets You High" or something — well you need to get her high.

I'm all over this like a cheap suit.

*The song (top) is "She's Got You High" — I first heard it when I saw the movie "500 Days of Summer."

Pencil Display


Created by Elise Gabriel for Maison Martin Margiela — and so very Flautist.


From the website:



The Pencil Display brings together and displays at a single glance all the writing and drawing materials of both adults and children: crayons, markers, pens, erasers, pencil sharpeners, paper clips, etc.


Vertically: Occupies a minimum of space and can hold up to 100 pencils, providing a storage compartment both convenient and secure.


Horizontally: Pencils and pens are in an organized array, making it very easy to choose the one you want.

Perforation on the back for wall mounting.

Painted metal with nylon switch bolts.

10.2"H x 7.9"W x 4.3"D.


€41 (pencils not included. It just never stops with you, does it?)
