Only 51 weeks until Mother’s Day

diskette-notebooks-colours.jpg  I read that line on a yard sale sign this afternoon on Fulton Street in downtown Manhattan, which, if you’re not familiar with the area, is nowhere near a yard.  The guy was selling crap, but you gotta respect the panache.

Speaking of gumption, Nicola of Acorn Studios wrote to me tonight asking me to share her latest repurposed trash creations with you folks.  In contrast to the senior citizen of this afternoon and his cheeky placard, Nicola peddles only quality geekware.  My favorite are the keyboard cuff links, but the floppy disk notebooks are also quite nice, and more colorful than I remembered storage devices of the past to be. 

Oh, and for mom, check out the earrings.
