I'd never turn my back on this Boo apron. Karen tipped us off to some of the coolest aprons I've ever seen from Etsy shop DarkBalloons. They're handmade to order (custom sizes available!), they've got gorgeous lines, and they're based on some of my favourite characters from Nintendo's Mario and Zelda franchises, and the Powerpuff Girls! Check them out…

My husband is a gamer. Not a random "whenever I'm feelin' it" kind of thing, but a serious GAMER. I, on the other hand, am most assuredly not. I know we can't be the only couple out here like this. It's inevitable in this day and age of gaming there are multitudes of gamer/non-gamer couples. Yet every single person I know has asked me at least once "How does that even work? If he's always on [insert game here] how is your relationship not suffering?!" Well, there are some very decidedly nice perks about gamers…
The real problem is, I'm a bit of a sore loser so we try to find two person, non-competitive games. Do any offbeat homies have ideas on games we can try out while I work on my sportsmanship?
Pay homage to the history of video games by blocking out the light (and eliminating glare on your screen) with these colourful blinds from Direct Blinds. Each blind features a retro gaming character like Pac-Man or a mushroom from Mario Bros. On top of that, the graphics are made up of controllers, joysticks, and handheld gaming systems from the earliest days of gaming up to today. Can you name every device pictured?
From time to time, you'll come across a very special book, video game or TV series that transports you to a unique universe — and does it so well, you could believe it's real. The screen lights on, you turn the page, or press enter, and you find yourself in a completely different place. For me, the Normandy in Mass Effect was one of these places I wish I could really travel to: chill in the lounge, have a drink with Tali and jest a bit with Garrus. So what would I need to bring a little bit of that ultra-modern relaxing vibe home with me?
There's one thing in the decoration department that I love to do more than decorating on my own place: decorating my video game character housing. So what happens when two obsessions collides? This happens: An inspiration board from a pretty awesome video game — Fallout 3-Tenpenny Towers.
What do sharks, trash cans, coffee tables, and flowers have in common? They all look AWESOME pixelated… and in your home. If you love 8bit art as much as this Homie, then you'll LOVE some of these pixelated home decor items.
