“Real Boy” Pushpin by Duncan Shotton

View all 6 Photos

Proper little men straight as a “pin” are created by Duncan Shotton and made in the UK.  Their long, pointy noses echos the Pinocchio story as does their name, Real Boy. They are each carefully hand painted in Tokyo. A package includes two pins which are individually numbered out of 1000 released. Their debut is at this year’s 2012 Designboom Mart Tokyo as part of Tokyo’s Designers Week which lasts from October 30th through November 5th.
Tack up notes and postcards to a cork board with these handsome gentlemen. They are always kind and never fuss to hold your reminders and ideas in place for when you need them.

Allison Parker is a proud stay at home mom maintaining a full schedule kissing boo boos and passing out hugs just because. Her days many times are spent between the garden and the kitchen. From a journey of learning whole food eating habits, she’s taken on the challenges of baking bread, muffins and cakes from scratch and filling the cellar shelves with scores of her own canned goods each year. Writing is one of those things she does because its part of who she is. That and it’s a nice break from the never ending work that comes with raising a family.
