My daughter loves to play hopscotch. And, I love to watch her play hopscotch. The thing I don't love? Drawing the hopscotch. It's my own fault. I insist on using every last grain of chalk as it whittles away on the sidewalk and I'm one millimeter away from scraping the skin off my fingers.
That's why this rug caught my eye:
It's designed to be a decorative solution to a rainy day and perhaps, not the solution to my own laziness. Hopscotch all the time!
This is one of the many reasons I decided to partner with Uncommon Goods; in addition to supporting a community of artisans, designers, and creative thinkers, their online shop is full of unique finds. Check this out:
Wait for it: It's a personalized mixtape welcome mat. *Swoon. And then cue that scene from Say Anything*
If the song In Your Eyes is stuck in your head now, you're welcome.
Uncommon Goods also offers practical things for the home. (What? A mixtape welcome mat isn't practical?)
And, I'm not sure if this f-bomb paperweight goes with the decor, but raise your hand if you want it:
It helps you recall big and small memories and access the lifetime of stories you carry around with you.
Another way to remember the important things: Letters To My Future Self. My sister-in-law got my son this exact same gift for his birthday, and it's a great way to create personal time capsules:
Uncommon Goods believes there's a story behind every product, and the company gives you a chance to learn more about the people who made them. When you're surrounded by all that inspiration, I understand when those who work there say, "We have a feeling the future will be uncommonly good." 🖤
