I love Pantone Color coffee cups:

Pantone Coffee/Tea Mug Set #TWO
"Pantone Coffee/Tea Mug Set #TWO will make any office or kitchen sparkle with colour. An additional set of 10 coloured mugs to compliment the original primary ones. Pantone references for the mugs are as follows: PAPRIKA 179 C, BABY BLUE 292 C, LAGOON BLUE 3025 C, DUCK EGG BLUE 337 C, PEA GREEN 363 C, GRAY (cool gray) 10 C, CHOCOLATE 732 C, MUSTARD 130 C, GRAPE 520 C, TURQUOISE 3272 C. In 1963, Lawrence Herbert, Pantone's founder, created an innovative system of identifying, matching and communicating colors to solve the problems associated with producing accurate color matches in the graphic arts community. His insight that the spectrum is seen and interpreted differently by each individual led to the innovation of the PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM®, a book of standardized color in fan format.

Over the last 45 years, Pantone has expanded its color matching system concept to other color-critical industries, including digital technology, textiles, plastics, architecture and contract interiors, and paint. It continues to develop color communication tools for a variety of industries and aggressively adopts new digital technology to address the color needs of design and production professionals."

New Finds

I'm not normally a fan of leather goods (at least things you can easily find made of synthetic fibers if you wanted to), but here are some beautiful products by Flight Path Designs:

Hedgehog with broken arms,

stuffed mini hamster,
